Since 2012 in the Harvard medical system, pretend operating rooms with pretend patients have hosted nurses, doctors, and techs who are learning to work as teams. In this short video, attendees and organizers explain what they’re trying to do with simulated surgical crises and why it seems to be helping them avert or minimize problems that arise in real-world operating rooms. When the training ends, these participants say they know more about their colleagues in other disciplines, and how to respond effectively when something goes awry.
