MOST is an in situ simulation team-training program, which formally educates a functioning group of obstetricians, neonatologists, anesthesiologists labor and delivery nurses, NICU nurses, and postpartum nurses in the development of emergency response interventions in order to positively affect teamwork and outcomes. This enhances the practice of emergency response protocols and team debriefings. One strength of this program is that participants learn to act only in their normal designated role. To emphasize this team concept, CETT trainers are a multidisciplinary group of individuals who represent the various specialties in WIS.

This simulation training has an initial implementation with the OB program but there are advantages and lessons learned that would benefit other departments within the hospital.  30 CETT programs take place throughout the year primarily at Washington Hospital Center. However, because of its success at WHC, the program has been extended to other MedStar hospitals including MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, MedStar Franklin Square Hospital Center, MedStar Harbor Hospital, MedStar Montgomery Medical Center, MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital and MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital.

MOST is an in situ simulation team-training program, which formally educates a functioning group of obstetricians, neonatologists, anesthesiologists labor and delivery nurses, NICU nurses, and postpartum nurses in the development of emergency response interventions in order to positively affect teamwork and outcomes. This enhances the practice of emergency response protocols and team debriefings. One strength of this program is that participants learn to act only in their normal designated role. To emphasize this team concept, CETT trainers are a multidisciplinary group of individuals who represent the various specialties in WIS.

This simulation training has an initial implementation with the OB program but there are advantages and lessons learned that would benefit other departments within the hospital.  30 CETT programs take place throughout the year primarily at Washington Hospital Center. However, because of its success at WHC, the program has been extended to other MedStar hospitals including MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, MedStar Franklin Square Hospital Center, MedStar Harbor Hospital, MedStar Montgomery Medical Center, MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital and MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital.

This bi-monthly meeting seeks to identify GI and hepatic disease cases that are unusual, interesting or challenging.  Certain cases present management challenges, which might benefit from the multidisciplinary approach the conference offers.  The format allows for the presentation of four to six cases and is structured as a teaching conference.  A short didactic talk with citation of relevant literature follows the case presentation.  With each presentation, there is a discussion of treatment options and alternatives or further diagnostic approaches.  Participation of both gastroenterologists and colorectal surgeons from academic, hospital-based and private practice provides a broad approach.
