  • Major Incident Reporting Template

    Gathering uniform data is necessary so comparative analysis can be performed enabling planners and emergency responders to identify tendencies and correlations between certain actions and outcomes in different types of incidents. Fattah et. al. report on this collaboration between the Norwegian Air Ambulance Foundation and London HEMS to develop a template to report on major incidents via the new web site majorincidentreporting.org.

  • Effects of teamwork in a Swedish emergency department on lead times and patient flow

    Long waiting times for emergency care are claimed to be caused by overcrowded emergency departments and non-effective working routines. This study (by Athlin et. al.) investigating the effects of teamwork in a Swedish emergency department on lead times and patient flow indicates that teamwork seems to contribute to the quality improvement of emergency care in terms of small but significant decreases in lead times. However, although efficient work processes such as teamwork are necessary to ensure safe patient care, it is likely not sufficient for bringing about larger decreases in lead times or for meeting the 4-hour target in the emergency department.
