Abstract Aim: To describe the development, evaluation and outcomes of a pilot crisis resource management (CRM) course developed specifically for the Ambulatory Surgery sector. Methods: The scenario-based course (DaCRM) covered the diagnosis and management of a number of potential medical emergencies. Evaluation incorporated pre- and post course surveys and follow-up interviews. Results: All participants applied learnings either clinically or organizationally in their workplace, and one successfully diagnosed and managed a malignant hyperthermia event. Conclusion: Some important generalizable principles were demonstrated: team-based CRM training of clinical and non-clinical staff can increase confidence, ameliorate possible de-skilling in Ambulatory Surgery settings and can save lives.
