  • Team Training of Inter-Professional Students (TTIPS) for improving
    • Authors: Paige, J. T; Garbee, D. D, Yu, Q, Rusnak, V.
      Pages: 127 - 134
      Abstract: ObjectiveIn surgery, dysfunctional teamwork is perpetuated by a ‘silo’ mentality modelled by students. Interprofessional education using high-fidelity simulation-based training (SBT) may counteract such modelling. We sought to determine whether SBT of interprofessional student teams (1) changes long-term teamwork attitudes and (2) is an effective form of team training.DesignA quasiexperimental, pre/postintervention comparison design was employed at an academic health sciences institution. High-fidelity simulation-based training of 42 interprofessional teams of third year surgery clerkship medical students and senior undergraduate nursing students was undertaken using a two-scenario format with immediate after action debriefing. Pre/postintervention TeamSTEPPS Teamwork Attitudes questionnaires (5 subscales, 30 items, Likert type) were given to the medical student and undergraduate nursing student classes. Pre/postsession Readiness for Inter-Professional Learning (RIPL; 19 items, Likert type) surveys and postscenario participant-rated and observer-rated Teamwork Assessment Scales (3 subscales, 11 items, Likert type) were given during each training session. Mean TeamSTEPPS Teamwork Attitudes Questionnaire, RIPL and Teamwork Assessment Scales scores were calculated; matched pre/postscore differences and trained versus non-trained TeamSTEPPS Teamwork Attitudes Questionnaire scores were compared using paired t-test or analysis of variance.ResultsBoth student groups had 10 significantly improved RIPL items as well as TeamSTEPPS Teamwork Attitudes Questionnaire (TTAQ) mutual support subscales. Medical students had a significantly improved TTAQ team structure subscale. Over a simulation-based training session, each observer-rated Teamwork Assessment Scales subscale and two self-rated Teamwork Assessment Scales subscales significantly improved. Trained students had significantly higher TTAQ team structure subscales than non-trained students.ConclusionsInterprofessional education using high-fidelity simulation-based training of students is effective at teaching teamwork, changing interprofessional attitudes and improving long-term teamwork attitudes.

  • Development of the Human Factors Skills for Healthcare Instrument: a valid
           and reliable tool for assessing interprofessional learning across
           healthcare practice settings
    • Authors: Reedy, G. B; Lavelle, M, Simpson, T, Anderson, J. E.
      Pages: 135 - 141
      Abstract: BackgroundA central feature of clinical simulation training is human factors skills, providing staff with the social and cognitive skills to cope with demanding clinical situations. Although these skills are critical to safe patient care, assessing their learning is challenging. This study aimed to develop, pilot and evaluate a valid and reliable structured instrument to assess human factors skills, which can be used pre- and post-simulation training, and is relevant across a range of healthcare professions.MethodThrough consultation with a multi-professional expert group, we developed and piloted a 39-item survey with 272 healthcare professionals attending training courses across two large simulation centres in London, one specialising in acute care and one in mental health, both serving healthcare professionals working across acute and community settings. Following psychometric evaluation, the final 12-item instrument was evaluated with a second sample of 711 trainees.ResultsExploratory factor analysis revealed a 12-item, one-factor solution with good internal consistency (α=0.92). The instrument had discriminant validity, with newly qualified trainees scoring significantly lower than experienced trainees (t(98)=4.88, p

  • Randomised controlled study to assess skill retention at 6 vs 12 months
           after simulation training in shoulder dystocia
    • Authors: Lee, M. M. H; Chan, C. N, Lau, B. Y. T, Ma, T. W. L.
      Pages: 142 - 148
      Abstract: IntroductionCurrent evidence suggests annual training in the management of shoulder dystocia is adequate. The aim of this trial is to test our hypothesis that skills start to decline at 6 months after training and further decline at 12 months.MethodsIn this randomised, single-blinded study, 13 obstetricians and 51 midwives were randomly assigned to attend a 1-hour mixed lecture and simulation session on shoulder dystocia management. Training was conducted on group 2 at month ‘0’ and on group 1 at month ‘6’. Their knowledge scores (primary outcome) were assessed before (pre-training), immediately after the training (at-training) and retested at month ‘12’ (post-training).ResultsTwo-way repeated-measures analysis of variance showed a statistically significant interaction between the testing time frame (pre-training, at-training and post-training) on the score (p

  • Evaluation of a multiple-encounter in situ simulation for orientation of
           staff to a new paediatric emergency service: a single-group
           pretest/post-test study
    • Authors: Davison, M; Kinnear, F. B, Fulbrook, P.
      Pages: 149 - 153
      Abstract: AimTo assess the utility of a multiple-encounter in-situ (MEIS) simulation as an orientation tool for multidisciplinary staff prior to opening a new paediatric emergency service.MethodsA single-group pretest/post-test study was conducted. During the MEIS simulation, multidisciplinary staff with participant or observer roles managed eight children (mannequins) who attended triage with their parent/guardians (clinical facilitators) for a range of emergency presentations (structured scenarios designed to represent the expected range of presentations plus test various clinical pathways/systems). Participants were debriefed to explore clinical, systems and crisis-resource management issues. Participants also completed a pre-intervention and post-intervention questionnaire comprising statements about role confidence and orientation adequacy. Pre-test and post-test results were analysed using t-test and Wilcoxon signed rank test.ResultsEighty-nine staff participated in the MEIS simulation, with the majority completing the pre-simulation and post-simulation questionnaire. There was a significant improvement in post-intervention versus pre-intervention Likert scores for role confidence and orientation adequacy (p=0.001 and

  • Older peoples views and experiences of engagement in standardised patient
    • Authors: Thompson, J; Tiplady, S, Hutchinson, A, Cook, G, Harrington, B.
      Pages: 154 - 158
      Abstract: BackgroundThe last two decades have witnessed initiatives aimed at improving the care of older people, including educating nurses so that they are equipped with the skills to care for older people with frailty and complex multimorbidities. It has been suggested that involvement of older service users in nurse education can facilitate the development of nurses’ caring skills by promoting understanding of the reality of older people’s situations. One method of involving older service users is standardised patient simulation (SPS). While some recent studies have acknowledged the importance of considering standardised patients’ experiences and perceptions of simulation, to date few have focused specifically on the experiences of older people.MethodsIn this qualitative study, data were collected via focus groups, whereby older people were invited to discuss their views and experiences of involvement in SPS. Data were analysed using open coding.FindingsFour themes emerged from the data, demonstrating that involving older people in SPS may be beneficial for their well-being. The four themes were: ‘using personal experiences to improve care’, ‘having a sense of purpose’, ‘preparation and support for SPS’ and ‘feeling appreciated’.DiscussionWhile most participants reported that they enjoyed the SPS activities, engagement appeared to have had a much deeper significance for them. Many participants’ responses suggested that involvement assisted them to ‘make sense’ of their experiences of illness and healthcare, and also gave a sense of purpose, of belonging and of being valued.ConclusionFindings support the need for nurse educators to consider developing SPS programmes that involve older people.

  • A collaborative approach to simulation development
    • Authors: Gonzalez, L; Allred, K.
      Pages: 159 - 162
      Abstract: BackgroundMeeting employer expectations is a challenge for new nurse graduates and their nurse educators. Designing studies to collect specific data on hospital expectations and new nursing graduate deficiencies is needed.SampleHospital-based educators and preceptors (n=13) participated in one of two focus groups, to identify problem areas. Senior nursing students (n=64) participated in simulations developed from data obtained in the sessions.MethodsAudio-recorded focus groups were conducted with the goal to identify deficiencies in new graduate nurses. Recordings were transcribed and analysed using thematic analysis.ResultsHospital employer expectation themes identified include attending to basic patient needs, organisational skills, anticipation of risks and consequences, higher order technical skills, communication and ownership/accountability. Two simulations for senior nursing students were developed to address identified deficiencies.ConclusionDeveloping meaningful simulations which address deficiencies prior to graduation, in collaboration with potential employers, has the potential to lower the cost of graduate nurse orientation, improve patient outcomes, provide a greater sense of readiness to the graduate nurse and ultimately meet the needs of both the student and employer.

      Abstract: BackgroundThe National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) developed plans for potential emergency conditions from the Exploration Medical Conditions List. In an effort to mitigate conditions on the Exploration Medical Conditions List, NASA implemented a crew medical officer (CMO) designation for eligible astronauts. This pilot study aims to add knowledge that could be used in the Integrated Medical Model.MethodsAn analogue population was recruited for two categories: administrative physicians (AP) representing the physician CMOs and technical professionals (TP) representing the non-physician CMOs. Participants completed four medical simulations focused on abdominal pain: cholecystitis (CH) and renal colic (RC) and chest pain: cardiac ischaemia (STEMI; ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction) and pneumothorax (PX). The Medical Judgment Metric (MJM) was used to evaluate medical decision making.ResultsThere were no significant differences between the AP and TP groups in age, gender, race, ethnicity, education and baseline heart rate. Significant differences were noted in MJM average rater scores in AP versus TP in CH: 13.0 (±2.25), 4.5 (±0.48), p=

  • Classifying simulation-based studies using the description, justification
           and clarification framework: a review of simulation conference abstracts
    • Authors: Graham, A. C; Church, H. R, Murdoch-Eaton, D. G.
      Pages: 169 - 171
      Abstract: IntroductionSimulation-based medical education (SBME) is an accepted learning methodology with an ever-expanding evidence base. Concerns have been expressed that research output in SBME lacks explicit links to educational theory. Using the ‘Description, Justification and Clarification’ framework we have investigated the extent to which SBME conference abstracts declare the educational theory underpinning their studies.Methods s from four major international SBME conferences (for 2014 and 2015) were reviewed. s were classified using the framework offered by Cook et al who classified studies published in major educational journals. Clarification studies are those which specifically declare and test their underpinning educational approach.ResultsWe reviewed 1398 conference abstracts which we classified as Description 54.4%, Justification 36.3% and Clarification 9.3%. The two most frequently declared educational theories were Cognitive Theories and Experiential Learning.ConclusionThe low proportion of Clarification studies found in the SBME conference abstracts reflects previous findings highlighting the lack of medical education studies that establish how and why SBME works. Researchers should be encouraged to declare their underpinning educational theories when presenting their work. Conference organisers play an important role in facilitating this through allowing sufficient word count in their submission criteria.
