Preventing Adverse Events and Promoting Safety Culture
Xiangya Hospital holds the WISER BIPP Faculty Training

On the morning of April 18, the WISER Back Injury Prevention Program (BIPP) Faculty Training was held in the International Lecture Hall of Xiangya Hospital, Central South University. Prof. Paul Phrampus and Prof. John O’Donnell from the Peter M. Winter Institute for Simulation Education and Research (WISER) of University of Pittsburgh delivered lectures to 20 excellent trainees who had passed the examination of the basic courses of BIPP.

The training was jointly organized by the Evaluation Office, the Department of Medical Affairs, the Nursing Department and the Clinical Skills Training Center. Frank G. Ricci from University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) , Zhang Jie, Director of Evaluation Office of Xiangya Hospital, Gao Hongmei, Deputy Director of the Nursing Department attended the training, which was presided over by Prof. Qian Zhaoxin, Director of the Department of Medical Affairs.

According to Prof. Paul Phrampus and Prof. John O’Donnell, the incidence of nonfatal occupational injuries and diseases was high in all industries in the United States in 2016 and the nursing staff were among the most seriously affected by work-related injuries. Scientific transshipment techniques can reduce the overall injuries to nurses by 50%, back injuries by 65% and neck injuries by 77%, effectively preventing adverse events.

Next, the lecturing experts reviewed the five principles of body mechanics, the ten steps of patient transshipment and other basic knowledge. In the situational simulation session, trainees carried out patient transshipment practice by playing the role of "patient", "medical staff", "observer", "trainer" and "judge" and raised questions in time by means of experience sharing and self-evaluation. The lecturing experts focused on the "trainers", and unreservedly imparted how to guide the trainees to think, how to control the overall course, and how to answer the trainees’ questions. The Evaluation Office will organize a remote video conference at which the “trainers” will be required to feed back their experience in practice teaching to the experts in 3 months.

The trainees said that the seemingly simple transshipment of patients entails many very complicated problems and that the carrying personnel should save energy to avoid self-injuries. As the potential “trainers”, they should comprehensively master the self-protection techniques, flexibly apply the teaching skills, and inspire the trainees to learn actively to maximally reduce the adverse events and ensure the safety of medical staff.

This training is the strengthening of basic courses. Small class teaching can enable the trainees to fully interact with the lecturing experts, consolidate and develop modern medical simulation thinking in a timely manner, and enhance the awareness of safety production. The trainees should actively spread the BIPP techniques in the hospital to make more employees master and benefit from them, jointly reducing the injuries and other adverse events.

In November 2017, Xiangya Hospital, Central South University held the basic training course of WISER Back Injury Prevention Program (BIPP) jointly with the University of Pittsburgh; 20 outstanding trainees received the basic course completion certificate and the qualifications for attending the WISER BIPP Faculty Training. The qualified trainees of this training will obtain the WISER BIPP faculty training completion certificate.
