In-hospital resuscitation under the microscope: analysing inter-professional communication using video

Project summary

This project will explore the possibilities and challenges of videoing inter-professional teams working on hospital wards to resuscitate patients following a cardiac arrest.

Video recordings provide an essential data source in communication research and are commonly used in the social sciences, but they are not yet widely applied in health research. With video, currently unverified understandings of what counts as ‘good’ communication, teamwork and leadership can be made explicit, tested empirically, and refined accordingly. 

This award will bring together a strong, multidisciplinary research team to jointly develop a methodological, ethical and legal framework for the planned research. This will be achieved through a simulation-based pilot study and engagement with stakeholders.
