  • Technology-enhanced learning for healthcare professionals: an essential
           response to infectious disease pandemics
    • Authors: Walsh, K; Sandars, J, Nordquist, J.
      Pages: 1 - 3
      Abstract: In the past 10 years, the world has experienced wave after wave of serious infectious disease outbreaks, including Ebola, influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and most recently Zika.1 These infections cause considerable morbidity and mortality, and it is just a matter of time before there is another outbreak. The population affected by these pandemics is not only the general public but also healthcare professionals, including doctors. At best, there might be temporary incapacity to work among healthcare professionals and, at worst, considerable numbers of professionals can die, such as during the recent Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone.2 The country’s clinical and public health workforce is still recovering from this shock. There is a major impact across the continuum of health professional education during any pandemic—from training students to providing continuing education for the overstretched and reduced healthcare workforce. The consequence is that clinical care...

  • Using simulation to iteratively test and re-design a cognitive aid for use
           in the management of severe local anaesthetic toxicity
    • Authors: McIntosh, C. A; Donnelly, D, Marr, R.
      Pages: 4 - 12
      Abstract: IntroductionCognitive aids, such as a guideline for the management of severe local anaesthetic (LA) toxicity, are tools designed to help users complete a task. Human factors experts recommend the use of simulation to iteratively test and re-design these tools. The purpose of this study was to apply human factors engineering principles to the testing and iterative re-design of three existing cognitive aids used for the management of severe LA toxicity and to use these data to develop a ‘new’ cognitive aid.MethodsTwenty anaesthetist–anaesthetic assistant pairs were randomised into four groups. Each of the first three groups received one of three different existing cognitive aids during a standardised simulated LA toxicity crisis. Postsimulation semistructured interviews were conducted to identify features beneficial and detrimental to the format and usability of the aid. Synthesis of the interview data with established checklist design recommendations resulted in a prototype aid, which was subjected to further testing and re-design by the fourth group (five more pairs) under the same conditions thus creating the final iteration of the new aid.ResultsFeatures of the new aid included a single-stream flowchart structure, single-sided, large-font design with colour contrast, simplified instructions and no need for calculations. This simplified tool contains only the information users reported as essential for the immediate crisis management.ConclusionsUtilisation of formative usability testing and simulation-based user-centred design resulted in a visually very different cognitive aid and reinforces the importance of designing aids in the context in which they are to be used. Simplified tools may be more appropriate for use in emergencies but more detailed guidelines may be necessary for training, education and development of local standard operating procedures. Iterative simulation-based testing and re-design is likely to be of assistance when developing aids for other crises, and to eliminate design failure as a confounder when investigating the relationship between use of cognitive aids and performance.

  • Sequential simulation used as a novel educational tool aimed at healthcare
           managers: a patient-centred approach
    • Authors: Weldon, S. M; Kelay, T, Ako, E, Cox, B, Bello, F, Kneebone, R.
      Pages: 13 - 18
      Abstract: BackgroundA new challenge for healthcare managers is to improve the patient experience. Simulation is often used for clinical assessment and rarely for those operating outside of direct clinical care. Sequential simulation (SqS) is a form of simulation that re-creates care pathways, widening its potential use.Local problemNumbers, outcome measures and system profiling are used to inform healthcare decisions. However, none of these captures the personal subtleties of a patient’s experience.Intervention56 students attended a teaching module using SqS and facilitated workshops as part of their induction week on an MSc International Health Management course. The workshop was voluntary and was offered as an opportunity for the students to gain an insight into the UK health system through the medium of simulation.MethodsAn evaluation survey incorporating quantitative and qualitative student feedback was conducted. Descriptive statistics were generated from the quantitative data, and thematic analysis was undertaken for the qualitative data.ResultsThere was strong agreement for the acceptability of the workshop approach in relation to the aims and objectives. Likert scale (1–-5) mean total=4.49. Participants responded enthusiastically (revealed through the qualitative data) with ideas related to perspectives sharing, understanding healthcare management and processes and the consideration of feasibility and practicalities. They also suggested other applications that SqS could be used for.ConclusionThe SqS approach has demonstrated that simulation has a wider potential than for clinical assessment alone. Further studies are required to determine its potential uses and affordances beyond its current format.

  • A qualitative evaluation of the role of simulation in policy development
           for service improvement
    • Authors: Blanks, T; Woodier, N, Baxendale, B, Fores, M, Fullerton, L.
      Pages: 19 - 22
      Abstract: ObjectiveTo evaluate the efficacy of simulation-based techniques to prospectively assess developing polices prior to implementation.MethodsA self-selected sample of nursing staff from a local, acute hospital reviewed a draft intravenous drug administration policy before simulating drug administration of either an infusion or direct injection. The participants completed a postsimulation questionnaire regarding the new policy and simulation, took part in a semistructured interview and were observed during the simulation with their consent.Results10 staff attended the simulation. The emergent themes identified a wide range of factors relating to the everyday usability and practicalities of the policy. There were issues surrounding inconsistent language between different clinical teams and training requirements for the new policy.ConclusionSimulation, using simple scenarios, allows the safe evaluation of new policies before publication to ensure they are appropriate for front-line use. It engages staff in user-centred design in their own healthcare system.

  • Simulated death enhances learner attitudes regarding simulation
    • Authors: Park, C. H; Wetmore, D, Katz, D, DeMaria, S, Levine, A. I, Goldberg, A. T.
      Pages: 23 - 26
      Abstract: IntroductionDespite the widespread use of simulated death in healthcare education, some view it as a controversial learning tool due to potential psychological harm. Others believe that allowing death during simulation enhances participant learning. Sparse data exist in the literature about learner attitudes towards simulated death. Our objective was to establish a link between exposure to simulated death and learner attitudes regarding simulation. Our hypothesis was that exposure to simulated death will positively affect learner attitudes towards simulation.MethodsAnonymous surveys were distributed to participants of simulations conducted by our department from January 2014 to December 2015. Collected survey data included total number of simulation scenarios, exposure to death and participants’ views towards simulation afterwards. Participants also rated the simulation on a Likert scale. We compared demographic and simulation data for participants who experienced simulated death versus participants who did not. Exposure to death and clinical level were included as predictor variables in logistic regressions using the simulator experience variables as outcomes.Results250 survey responses were analysed. 64% of participants were attendings. 82% of participants experienced death during simulation. The group that experienced simulated death gave significantly higher ratings (4.77 vs 4.50, p=0.004) and a higher percentage of maximum ratings on the Likert scale (83% vs 59%, p=0.0002). More participants who experienced death thought that simulated death could enhance learning (76% vs 59%, p=0.021). When adjusted for training level, those who experienced death in simulation were nearly twice as likely to think that death can enhance learning (p=0.049) and 133% more likely to give the simulation the highest rating (p=0.036).ConclusionsSurvey participants who experienced simulated death were more likely to think that death can enhance learning and more likely to give the simulation the highest rating, thereby demonstrating that exposure to simulated death positively affects learner attitudes regarding simulation.

  • 3D printing materials and their use in medical education: a review of
           current technology and trends for the future
    • Authors: Garcia, J; Yang, Z, Mongrain, R, Leask, R. L, Lachapelle, K.
      Pages: 27 - 40
      Abstract: 3D printing is a new technology in constant evolution. It has rapidly expanded and is now being used in health education. Patient-specific models with anatomical fidelity created from imaging dataset have the potential to significantly improve the knowledge and skills of a new generation of surgeons. This review outlines five technical steps required to complete a printed model: They include (1) selecting the anatomical area of interest, (2) the creation of the 3D geometry, (3) the optimisation of the file for the printing and the appropriate selection of (4) the 3D printer and (5) materials. All of these steps require time, expertise and money. A thorough understanding of educational needs is therefore essential in order to optimise educational value. At present, most of the available printing materials are rigid and therefore not optimum for flexibility and elasticity unlike biological tissue. We believe that the manipuation and tuning of material properties through the creation of composites and/or blending materials will eventually allow for the creation of patient-specific models which have both anatomical and tissue fidelity.

  • What patients think of online clinical decision support tools
    • Authors: Walsh K.
      Pages: 41 - 42
      Abstract: Introduction Evidence-based medicine is a vital component of modern healthcare. It is vital that doctors and other healthcare professionals follow the best available evidence when making decisions about diagnosis and treatment. However, evidence-based medicine faces significant challenges. The evidence can change quickly and healthcare professionals want and need the most recently updated content. The volume of evidence-based literature is enormous and healthcare professionals do not have time to search all the literature when looking for an evidence-based answer to their question—they need a reliable answer quickly.1 Much of the evidence-based literature is academic in nature, yet doctors want practical content that will help them tackle the problems that they see every day.2 Finally a core component of evidence-based medicine is that it should encourage shared decision-making and yet this is often neglected in the traditional evidence-based medicine literature. One way of overcoming these problems...

  • Practical management of emergencies in primary care: taking simulation out
           of the classroom and into real-life environments
    • Authors: Forde, E; Bromilow, J, Wedderburn, C.
      Pages: 43 - 44
      Abstract: Introduction General practitioners (GPs) have a responsibility to provide prompt and effective care in an emergency and GPs in the UK are required to undertake annual basic life support (BLS) training. However, most emergencies are peri-arrest and this is an area where GPs lack confidence.1 This may be because life-threatening emergencies in the community are relatively infrequent and therefore provide a challenge for doctors in keeping up to date. The aim of this project was to upskill GPs in managing emergencies that could occur in general practice surgeries. Classroom-based simulation has a track record for teaching and is often used for BLS courses. However, clinicians need to be able to use their own equipment and medication, and be confident managing emergencies within their surgeries. High-fidelity simulation-based training programmes for managing emergencies have been successfully used in hospital settings2 and have been shown to improve...
