Regional One Health Partnership

The partnership is currently involved in the research study, "Evaluating the Impact of Didactic Education and High-Fidelity Code Blue Simulation Training on Code Blue Execution in Emergency Services." Principal Investigators are Jamica Taylor, MSN, RN, Regional One; Charles Lapsley, MSN, RN, Regional One; Proressor Sara W. Day, PhD, RN, FAAN, UTHSC College of Nursing; and Brook Clemons, MSN, RN, PhD Nursing Science Student, UTHSC College of Nursing.

The purpose of this collaborative study is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of code blue performance at Regional One Health. Methods include didactic education and high-fidelity code blue simulation training to enhance staff response to emergency situations, manual chest compression quality, recognition of lethal cardiac rhythms, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and defibrillation. Didactic education combined with simulation training has the potential to advance staff confidence, competency, team dynamics and ultimately better outcomes for Regional One Health patients.
