  • Performance gaps and improvement plans from a 5-hospital simulation
           programme for anaesthesiology providers: a retrospective study
    • Authors: DeMaria, S; Levine, A, Petrou, P, Feldman, D, Kischak, P, Burden, A, Goldberg, A.
      Pages: 37 - 42
      Abstract: BackgroundSimulation is increasingly employed in healthcare provider education, but usage as a means of identifying system-wide practitioner gaps has been limited. We sought to determine whether practice gaps could be identified, and if meaningful improvement plans could result from a simulation course for anaesthesiology providers.MethodsOver a 2-year cycle, 288 anaesthesiologists and 67 certified registered nurse anaesthetists (CRNAs) participated in a 3.5 hour, malpractice insurer-mandated simulation course, encountering 4 scenarios. 5 anaesthesiology departments within 3 urban academic healthcare systems were represented. A real-time rater scored each individual on 12 critical performance items (CPIs) representing learning objectives for a given scenario. Participants completed a course satisfaction survey, a 1-month postcourse practice improvement plan (PIP) and a 6-month follow-up survey.ResultsAll recorded course data were retrospectively reviewed. Course satisfaction was generally positive (88–97% positive rating by item). 4231 individual CPIs were recorded (of a possible 4260 rateable), with a majority of participants demonstrating remediable gaps in medical/technical and non-technical skills (97% of groups had at least one instance of a remediable gap in communication/non-technical skills during at least one of the scenarios). 6 months following the course, 91% of respondents reported successfully implementing 1 or more of their PIPs. Improvements in equipment/environmental resources or personal knowledge domains were most often successful, and several individual reports demonstrated a positive impact on actual practice.ConclusionsThis professional liability insurer-initiated simulation course for 5 anaesthesiology departments was feasible to deliver and well received. Practice gaps were identified during the course and remediation of gaps, and/or application of new knowledge, skills and resources was reported by participants.

  • Effect of expertise on diagnosis accuracy, non-technical skills and
           thought processes during simulated high-fidelity anaesthetist scenarios
    • Authors: McRobert, A. P; Mercer, S. J, Raw, D, Goulding, J, Williams, A. M.
      Pages: 43 - 47
      Abstract: BackgroundThe expert performance approach can be used to examine expertise during representative field-based tasks, while collecting process-tracing measures such as think-aloud verbal reports. Collecting think-aloud verbal reports provides an insight into the cognitive mechanisms that support performance during tasks.MethodWe examined the thought processes and performance of anaesthetists during simulated environments. Verbal reports of thinking and the anaesthetists’ non-technical skills (ANTS) were recorded to examine cognitive processes, non-technical behaviours and diagnosis accuracy during fully immersive, high-fidelity medical scenarios. Skilled (n=6) and less skilled (n=9) anaesthetists were instructed to respond to medical scenarios experienced in theatre.ResultsSkilled participants demonstrated higher diagnosis accuracy and ANTS scores compared to less skilled participants. Furthermore, skilled participants engaged in deeper thinking and verbalised more evaluation, prediction and deep planning statements.ConclusionsThe ability to employ an effective cognitive processing strategy, more efficient non-technical behaviours and superior diagnosis is associated with superior performance in skilled participants.

  • Comparison of oral and video debriefing and its effect on knowledge
           acquisition following simulation-based learning
    • Authors: Farooq, O; Thorley-Dickinson, V. A, Dieckmann, P, Kasfiki, E. V, Omer, R. M. I. A, Purva, M.
      Pages: 48 - 53
      Abstract: IntroductionLearning from simulation takes place to a large extent in debriefing; however, there is still sparse knowledge about the advantages and disadvantages of debriefing methods. 2 common forms are video-assisted and oral only debriefing. We set out to determine if there is increased knowledge acquisition for candidates undergoing video, rather than oral debriefing.MethodsSecond year doctors were randomised to a training day with oral or video feedback. Candidates underwent an emergency clinical scenario followed by feedback. The candidates completed 30 multiple choice questions related to managing common clinical emergencies presimulation and postsimulation training.ResultsThere was no significant difference in the postscore mean for the oral debriefing (128.3, SD 5.16) and video-assisted debriefing group (127.1, SD=5.96). There was significant interaction between precourse and postcourse scores with superior knowledge acquisition for candidates with lower precourse scores (p=0.008). The candidates with lowest precourse score showed significant improvement in the orally debriefed group in comparison to video debriefed group.DiscussionOur results showed that video debriefing has equivocal effect to oral debriefing. Oral debriefing provides superior knowledge acquisition to learners with lower precourse test scores.

  • Could low Safety Attitudes Questionnaire scores be indicative of an
           environment where it may be difficult to get new training practices
    • Authors: Channing, S; Ryan, N, Barnes, S, Collins, K, van der Nelson, H, Mears, J, Siassakos, D.
      Pages: 54 - 59
      Abstract: IntroductionSimulation-based, multiprofessional team training (SBMPTT) is used widely in healthcare, with evidence that it can improve clinical outcomes and be associated with a positive safety culture. Our aim was to explore the impact of introducing this type of training to a gynaecological team.MethodsIn this interrupted time-series study, ‘Safety Attitudes Questionnaire’ (SAQ) data was collected both before and after SBMPTT was introduced to a gynaecological team.ResultsLow baseline SAQ scores coincided with difficulty in establishing the training, meaning that at the end of our study period only a small proportion of staff had actually attended a training session. Despite trends towards improvement in scores for safety climate, teamwork climate and job satisfaction, no statistically significant difference was observed. There was however an improved perception of the level of collaboration between nursing staff and doctors after the introduction of training.Conclusions and DiscussionIn this paper we explore a hypothesis that low baseline SAQ scores may highlight that the multiprofessional teams most in need of training work in environments where it is more challenging to implement. There is evidence from other specialties that multiprofessional team training works, now we need to understand how to address the barriers to getting it started. In this paper we suggest how the SAQ could be used as a directive tool for improvement; using the detailed analysis of the local safety culture it provides to both inform future training design and also provide management with an objective marker of progress.

  • 21st century medical education: critical decision-making guidance through
           smartphone/tablet applications--the Lothian pilot
    • Authors: Prescott, O; Millar, E, Nimmo, G, Wales, A, Edgar, S.
      Pages: 60 - 64
      Abstract: IntroductionIn starting a new clinical placement, doctors in training must become aware of and apply standard operating procedures, as well as learn guidelines, simultaneously adjusting to new patient presentations, environments and personnel. This transition is thought to correlate with increased risk to patient safety, notably during the annual UK changeover. Mobile technologies are increasingly commonplace throughout the National Health Service. Clinicians at all levels are employing medical technology and applications (apps) with minimal local guidance. We set out to test the feasibility and utility of offering medical apps to out-of-hours (OOH) practitioners as an aid to clinical decision-making at point of patient contact. The theorised benefits were threefold: clinical education—real time support for clinical decision-making as one component of deliberate practice to build expert performance; decreased administrative burden–updating and accessing current guidelines; and service development—readily accessible feedback from users.MethodWe provided 32 devices in our emergency departments and OOH environments. The devices were preloaded with apps approved by our medical education department and clinical service leads to be used in support of care delivery.ResultsWe surveyed 123 clinical staff prior to the pilot discovering that 65% had used mobile apps to aid their decision-making. During our project, we saw the number of clinical users expand with our data series, suggesting the apps most useful to care delivery for this group of service providers.Future developmentsThere was huge enthusiasm for the project and we hope to maintain a clinician-led environment.

  • Using simulation to address care of the transgender patient in nursing
    • Authors: Diaz, D. A; Maruca, A, Gonzalez, L, Stockmann, C, Hoyt, E.
      Pages: 65 - 69
      Abstract: This descriptive study explored the use of simulation as a means to increase cognitive and reflective practice as well as determining if simulation can alter perceptions and attitudes related to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. This manuscript describes how student nurses perceive their role when providing care to and, more specifically, the care of transgender patients. The research question asks: How does a transgender simulation impact the attitudes and beliefs of nursing students related to the LGBT community? One-hundred and fifty-nine students, with a subset of 120 students attending a school in central Florida and 50 students attending a Connecticut programme, participated in the completion of the instruments. The Gender Affirmative Practice (GAP) scale was used to evaluate their attitudes and practice concerning LGBT issues. Findings suggest that the majority of the students rarely or never discuss pertinent sexual orientation issues. Students are not comfortable creating a climate that allows for self-identification by gay/ lesbians, despite admitting to being open and accepting the LGBT community with their faculty. Limitations were based on multisite location and the use of the GAP. It is important for nursing students, and healthcare providers, to acknowledge and recognise the unique vulnerabilities of transgender persons who are seeking healthcare. The exposure to transgender individuals in a clinical setting may be limited; therefore, the use of simulation will offer the opportunity to examine their beliefs and reflect on their attitudes towards this population. Simulation incorporating mental health issues is a newer training technique in which psychosocial aspects of healthcare are addressed.

  • Fields of promoted actions for facilitating multitasking activity during a
           medical emergency
    • Authors: Morineau, T; Chapelain, P, Le Courtois, M, Le Gac, J.-M.
      Pages: 70 - 72
      Abstract: BackgroundAn adverse clinical event requires emergency team coordination and multitasking activity. Based on studies in ecological psychology, we propose that a structured ambient environment can implicitly facilitate these requirements.MethodWe designed a new configuration of work in which spatial zones were specified as fields of promoted actions for doctors, nurses and nursing auxiliaries. 6 emergency teams were confronted with scenarios in a simulation setting, either with a traditional configuration of work or with the new configuration.ResultsSignificantly, each kind of caregiver respected the delimited spatial zones: 91.5% of occupation time for doctors, 97.1% for nurses and 95.3% for nursing auxiliaries. The mean durations of occupation of a same zone by the nursing auxiliaries and another caregiver decreased significantly, thus reducing the likelihood of mutual disturbance. Readiness for multitasking activity measured before and after experiencing the work configuration increased significantly among caregivers. An ergonomic evaluation scale showed a high level of satisfaction among caregivers (68.5 points out of 100). Participants also indicated the advantages and disadvantages of this new work configuration.ConclusionsThis study is a first step towards recommendations to standardise the positioning of emergency team members and for a new spatial arrangement of equipment.

  • Online clinical decision support: how it is used at the point-of-care
    • Authors: Walsh K.
      Pages: 73 - 74
      Abstract: Introduction The volume of medical literature continues to expand at such a rate that no single doctor or healthcare professional can keep up. At the same time, doctors are increasingly short of time and need answers to important clinical questions quickly. Trying to keep up by acquiring knowledge is no longer possible in the modern era. Point-of-care clinical decision support tools are one way of helping doctors and other healthcare professionals. These tools allow doctors to find immediate, current and evidence-based answers to important clinical questions. The best tools cover a wide range of diseases and uphold the highest standards in editorial quality and evidence-based methodology. While there have been a number of analyses of how existing tools satisfy these criteria, there have been few studies of how point-of-care clinical decision support tools are actually used.1 Many papers also look at referential sources of information rather...

  • Novel combination of simulation and Lean methodology to improve operating
           room turnover
    • Authors: Meguerdichian, M; Bajaj, K, Pohlman, J, D'Orazio, V, Walker, K, Birnbaum, A.
      Pages: 75 - 76
      Abstract: Introduction We describe a novel combination of medical simulation and Lean process improvement methodology applied to improve operating room (OR) turnover time (TOT). Excess OR TOT (time between one patient's exit and next patient's entry) negatively impacts throughput, patient care and revenue generation. Elimination of waste and improvement in efficiency are highly desirable. Lean methodology, applied to healthcare, seeks improvement by eliminating waste, revising processes and identifying/resolving problems at a root-cause level.1–4 Staff are engaged in change through weeklong rapid improvement events (RIE) to redesign, test and implement new work processes. An RIE includes critical assessment of the current state, mapping current processes, identification of the desired state, examination of process gaps, brainstorming improvements and experimentation to develop solutions and improve standard work.1 To address the issue of excess OR TOT, taking an OR out-of-service would be disruptive...

  • Using mobile technology to enhance medical student assessment
    • Authors: Sinha, S; McRobbie, S, Meldrum, A, Brown, C, Denison, A.

      Abstract: Introduction Given the value we place on ‘human’ qualities such as empathy, it is difficult to imagine a future where doctors are fully replaced by ‘Medibots’ as predicted by some. However, the integration of technology into the education domain is ubiquitous; innovations include EEG monitored high fidelity simulation,1 free open access medical education (FOAMED) and Google glass facilitated patient encounters.2 It is this increase in technologies, along with a deeper appreciation of educational psychology and pedagogy that has led to a significant change in the way medical learners are taught. In this article, we describe our experience of using one example of technology, the mobile device, for the assessment of both students and our practice, as we strive as medical educators to keep abreast of technological advances. This drives innovation in our curriculum and prepares learners optimally for future postgraduate practice. Streamlining the...

      Abstract: Introduction Elderly patients have complex health needs and are vulnerable to inadequate or undignified treatment.1 Fostering professional and altruistic attitudes in medical education is necessary in order to prepare medical students for care of older patients.2 This paper describes a low-fidelity simulation session designed to increase empathy towards elderly patients among University of Edinburgh medical students. The session aims to enhance understanding of effects of age-related physical impairments on activities of daily living; how these impairments may challenge good clinical care and stimulate discussion about how these challenges may be mitigated. The session has been integrated into the Medicine of the Elderly teaching programme and here we describe it as delivered in NHS Fife, where the session has expanded to include a commercial age simulation suit3 to further enhance the learning experience. Methods The 90 min session accommodates six medical students...

      Abstract: Statement In situ simulation (ISS) (simulation in the workplace) helps to improve participants' knowledge, behaviour and confidence by providing multidisciplinary training1 in real clinical environment. ISS also contributes towards identification of hidden errors in the system called latent errors.2 ISS has been successfully used to test run newly established healthcare facilities.3 There is emerging evidence that ISS helps in reducing morbidity and mortality4 thus could improve quality of patient care.5 Effective delivery of ISS requires proper planning, collaboration and execution. As ISS is a relatively new educational tool, there are very few resources available that would highlight key components of ISS. We have created a video that would highlight various aspects related to ISS. The steps highlighted should be given due consideration before undertaking simulation in the workplace. The components shown are: identification of stakeholders, needs analysis, timing,...
