Fiji Critical Care Jenga
Providing critical care in a developing system is extremely challenging and can be likened to "Critical Care Jenga."
Providing a service to the critically ill depends on a number of essential building blocks: Trained staff, diagnostics, equipment, drugs, guidelines and processes. Compromise one element and maintaining quality of care becomes precarious.
Jenga is a game of physical and mental skill. Using real cases see how removing one block at a time may see even the seasoned clinician struggle to perform well. Welcome to Fiji Critical Care Jenga.
