Simulation as an additional tool for investigating the performance of standard operating procedures in anaesthesia.


BACKGROUND In medicine, the use of standard operating procedures (SOPs) is often evaluated using questionnaires (QUES). However, QUES can have limitations with regard to method, thus leading to errors. Simulation (SIM) offers another opportunity for evaluation. We hypothesized that medical errors in the evaluation of SOPs using QUES could be detected by SIM… (More)
