There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
1.) Boston Children’s Hospital is one of the largest tertiary pediatric hospitals in the world and the primary pediatric teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School.
2.) The Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement is one of the oldest pediatric otolaryngology programs in the world.
3.) Fellows Simulation Training: In order to improve surgical team collaboration and safety in the operating room, the department runs an ongoing medical simulation program. This program teaches Pediatric Otolaryngology fellows, as well as Otolaryngology residents rotating through Children’s Hospital, the Crisis Resource Management (CRM) principles of leadership, teamwork and communication. Utilizing state of the art simulation techniques, a multidisciplinary team including the ORL trainees experience high acuity, low frequency simulated clinical scenarios. The scenarios are in situ and occur in the actual BCH operating rooms with anesthesiologists, nurses and ancillary personnel native to the OR environment. Not only do the simulations give the fellows experience in improving their teamwork skills, but they also afford them the opportunity to lead a surgical team during a crisis situation. Each simulation is followed by a debriefing session led by trained facilitators. The course is comprised of a short didactic session and includes three simulations followed by the debriefing sessions. Depending on scheduling, four to six courses are given per academic year.
