The Risk Management and Patient Safety Institute Announces Agreement With Pioneering Health Care Simulation Organization, PSO One
Date:9/3/2008

Led by Aviation and Medical Experts, PSO One Provides Proven Tool for

Improving Patient Safety

LANSING, Mich., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Risk Management and Patient Safety Institute (RM&PSI), a national leader in clinical risk management practices and patient safety programs for health care institutions and providers, today announced a partnership with Battle Creek, Mich.-based PSO One, a pioneer in the development and use of onsite ("in-situ") simulation training experiences for hospitals.

PSO One was born out of the Center of Excellence for Simulation Research at Western Michigan University and seeks to bring the life-like simulation techniques and philosophies widely used in aviation to health care. PSO One is led by Dr. William Hamman, M.D., Ph.D., a doctor and pilot and former manager of human factors and risk assessment for United Airlines. A clinician for 15 years, Hamman is also a 30-year aviation veteran, currently serving as an international captain for United Airlines. Before resuming his piloting position, Hamman was a leader in the industry in applying risk analysis processes to airline operations. Through his research, Hamman has established a reputation as one of the foremost experts on the science of simulation tools and evaluation.

PSO One creates simulation experiences for hospitals based on the principles of the simulation drills utilized by airlines and the FAA to certify and train entire flight teams in a number of complex, team-focused scenarios. In fact, "in-situ" means in place, in the natural or original setting. For health care institutions, this means the simulations focus on team and technical competencies, which take place in the actual hospital setting (i.e. the hospital or a specific department), not in a lab environment, and must involve actual health care teams across many disciplines.

Each scenario PSO One creates is complex, focusing on both teamwork and technical skil
