Complicated, complex and compliant: Best practice in obstetrics

Dekker, Sidney; Bergström, Johan LU ; Amer-Wåhlin, Isis and Cilliers, Paul (2013) In Cognition, Technology & Work 15(2). p.189-195
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

In this study the distinction between complicated and complex is used to shed some light on compliance with best-practice guidelines. Data was gathered related to obstetric practice in labor wards and operating theatres at two Scandinavian hospitals, one of them being a university hospital, and in a training facility. The complexity of obstetrical intervention is analyzed in this paper, as is the potential of compliance-based routines in obstetrics. Complex situations are different from complicated ones and patient safety management efforts should recognize and enhance the sort of diversity that helps the emergence of resilience in complex situations.
