Timing, Tribes and STEMIs

The over-arching theme of smaccGOLD was the bringing together of people from all facets of critical care to share ideas, collaborate, learn from one another and understand each other. Victoria Brazil (@SocraticEM) kicked off the conference with an amazing talk that set the scene for everything that followed. She examines the tribal nature of the health professions, the harms that can result and how we can make things better so that our patients benefit – with examples like cutting STEMI door-to-needle times in half.

Enjoy!

    Great way of presenting the whole idea!!

    It’s just a matter of following etiquette as and basic manners of communication at all times. And of course not considering oneself superior/ better then others at all times as well… It’s not easy…

    But it all comes down to practising patience and increase the level of tolerance end of the day :) easier said then done ;)

    Thank you Victoria

    VICTORIA, WHAT A GREAT TALK. UP UNTIL NOW, I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF USING THIS DEVICE TO REDUCE THE PERSON-TO-PERSON TENSION.
    I JUST RETIRED FROM 39 YEARS AS A REGISTERED RESPIRATORY THERAPIST, ALL BUT 3 YEARS WERE IN ADULT CRITICAL CARE AND 3 YEARS AS A PARAMEDIC IN N.Y.C. AND I WISH I HAD LEARNED THIS ON DAY 1, YEAR 1.
    THANK YOU!!

    PETE
