Essential DEEDS for improving anaesthetists' cognition

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

In this presentation, I will explore the role of the DEEDS (Dynamical, Embodied, Extended, Distributed, & Situated) approach in improving anaesthetists' cognition in the operating theatre. I will argue for the importance of studying the dynamic interaction between the anaesthetist, the patient, the surgical team and all the external resources in the OR environment (e.g., monitors, charts) in order to understand the implications of such dynamic an interaction on cognition. Furthermore, I will consider the development of cognitive skills in anaesthesia training from a DEEDS perspective, in which "scaffolding", embodied, and emergent experiences play crucial roles. The practical relevance for applications to simulation training will thus be explored and future research ideas will be suggested.
