Macrocognition is a novel approach to develop knowledge among team members in complex, high-reliability industries. In healthcare, macrocognitive research can inform understanding of situated interactions between interprofessional team members. This presentation explains the research conducted on a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU). Using an ethnographic method to understand the existing relationship of the physical environment and both formal and informal interactions, a simulation model database can be constructed. By using qualitative research to identify existing data sets and test “what-if” scenarios, operational changes and redesign or new design programming and planning can occur in an evidence-based way.
