Work in Progress: Dr. David Barbic

Date 
September 26, 2018
12:00pm to 1:00pm
Location 
Hurlburt Auditorium, St. Paul’s Hospital

When patients arrive at the emergency department (ED) agitated, aggressive, and with potentially violent behaviour, it is paramount to find a way to address the situation quickly for the safety of patients and ED staff. Patients may be suffering from mental health crises, substance misuse, severe infections, or trauma, and caring for them and other patients is a primary concern for ED staff. This randomized controlled trial investigates the use of intramuscular (IM) ketamine compared to current standard care medications for the rapid and safe control of patients in the ED who present to the ED with aggression or violent behaviour. The trial began enrolling patients June 11, 2018 and there have been both successful moments and challenges to this point. Dr. Barbic will be discussing these, as well as future directions for ED and pre-hospital research in this field.

This module complements the module Healthy Work Environment & its discussions on creating a healthy workplace culture. In this module the focus is on learning. We begin with a discussion of learning in the workplace & working with different generations of employees. The first part of this module enhances the leader’s awareness of ways to foster learning – of both individuals & teams – in the workplace. The second topic is a more specific look at giving learning oriented feedback & builds on the transactional competencies of performance management that are covered in the Management Track workshops.

Reframing for Results (Leading at Providence)

In this interactive module, participants will be oriented to Lee Bolman & Terry/Terrance Deal’s “four frames analysis.” The model asks leaders to examine organizations through four basic frames: political, structural, symbolic & human resources. Participants will then apply this model of analysis to a CBC “Current” or “White Coat, Black Art” podcast or other healthcare example. As part of their pre-work, participants will be asked to identify a work project to which they will apply their learning during & immediately following the session. Participants will be asked to examine both the podcast example & their work project through each of the four frames & consider how this process applies to their own leadership & management decision-making processes elsewhere.
