Abstract:Crew Resource Management (CRM) has become an important instrument in the training of health care personnel, however, the level of training for the ICU teams could be enhanced. To enhance CRM training several escape room puzzles were designed, and this paper will test one of the escape room puzzles. This paper reports the development and assessment of an evaluation instrument for the nine crucial CRM skills. The nine skills are 1) situational awareness, 2) feedback, 3) cognitive performance under stress, 4) closed loop communication, 5) effective teamwork, 6) use of checklists, 7) leadership and followership, 8) briefing before doing a procedure and lastly 9) effective and structured handover. A learning curve experiment was performed on one of the designed escape room puzzles. The main research question was: “Does the Under Pressure escape room puzzle suitably improve or measure team dynamics?” It was found that puzzle does improve team dynamics in general, however, it should be modified to encourage the skills of feedback, closed loop communication, effective teamwork, and the use of checklists.
