Crew Resource Management (CRM) is a procedure that is used in the airline industry. CRM affords the ability of any crew member to stop any portion of a pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight process that can lead to an incident that could cause harm, injury or death to anyone no matter crew or passenger. Research CRM and discuss how you see this process assisting in keeping a patient safe in a healthcare environment. Discuss why you do or do not believe this process should be used in a healthcare setting.
