“CRM and SBT… just another set of acronyms in the world of medical education? Don’t we already have enough??
Not quite! Rather, Crisis Resource Management (CRM) is a complementary approach to Simulation Based Training (SBT). It can enhance current ongoing medical simulations or provide foundation for a vigorous curriculum when launching new simulation programs.

From the 2013 SMACC conference – this is Cliff Reid delivering a talk called ‘Making Things Happen’:

This talk is a great companion to ‘Own The Resus‘
This is Cliff Reid delivering a talk at the 2012 Essentials of Emergency Medicine Conference.
Cliff is a doctor with one or two letters after his name (FACEM FCEM FCRSEd FRCP FCCP FFICM EDIC DRTM DIMC CFEU) who spends a considerable portion of his time as a lead educator for the Greater Sydney Area HEMS.
‘Own The Resus’ is his take on how to be an effective leader in a resuscitation situation. There are some absolute pearls in here – my favourite is ‘fake it till you become it‘!
