Investigating the human factors of invasive line risk management in paediatric cardiac critical care (InSITE Project)
Home 5 Capstone 5 Investigating the human factors of invasive line risk management in paediatric cardiac critical care (InSITE Project)

Problem:

To complete the invasive line risk assessment for a single patient, multiple care providers must be repurposed as data collectors and least one quality leader to flag concerns over a particular period of time and manually synthesize data for decision-makers. In order to execute this process for all patients with invasive lines in a unit in a systematic way, bedside discussions for line-related data happens on a weekly basis, producing delays in risk management.

Background:

This study served to understand the workflow processes and sociotechnical factors pertaining to invasive line risk management of clinical expert participants in the CCCU at SickKids. Human Factors methodology and the framework of a sociotechnical system were used to better understand how clinicians completed the task of invasive line management.
