Comparative issues in aviation and surgical crew resource management: (1) are we too solution focused?ANZ J Surg. 2008 Aug; 78(8):690-3.AJ
Although the published work in health care increasingly promotes aviation as a high-reliability industry to be emulated, there is little empirical research to justify equating the dynamics of health care's operating environment with that of aviation. This article examines some of the potential key areas of difference between the two professional groups with respect to crew resource management. The risks of implementing crew resource management training in health care without an evidential basis are discussed.
