  • Impact of providing case-specific knowledge in simulation: a theory based
           study of learning
    • Authors: Cox, J; McGregor, M, Giuliano, D, Howard, L.
      Pages: 1 - 4
      Abstract: BackgroundSimulation-based education (SBE) has been lauded for its ability to help students recognise and react appropriately to common and rare circumstances. While healthcare professions have started to implement SBE into their curriculum, there is no evidence to suggest which educational theory is best for implementation. This study explores the usage of cognitive load theory (CLT) and the unified theory of emotional learning (UTEL).Study designA mixed methods ordered-allocation cohort study.Methods23 patient management teams were allocated into 2 groups. The first group received prior information about the simulation scenario; the second group did not. Each team had 1 student assigned to the role of doctor. The scenarios were filmed at time 1 (T1), time 2 (T2) and follow-up (F/U). The ‘doctor’ role was then graded with a validated checklist by a three-judge panel. The scores were evaluated to determine if prior information enabled better performance. Secondary analysis evaluated the role of gender on performance and also evaluated anxiety at the onset of the simulation.Results23 doctors were evaluated. There was no difference between groups in performance (t=1.54, p=0.13). Secondary analysis indicated that gender did not play a role. There was no difference in anxiety between groups at baseline (t=0.67, p=0.51).ConclusionsTrends were observed, suggesting that when students enter a simulation environment with prior knowledge of the event they will encounter, their performance may be higher. No differences were observed in performance at T2 or F/U. Withholding information appeared to be an inappropriate proxy for emotional learning as no difference in anxiety was observed between groups at baseline. All trends require confirmation with a larger sample size.

  • Using digital story telling to assess health students knowledge of
           interprofessional roles in the care of the older adult
    • Authors: Frost, J; Isbel, S, Kellett, J, Lawlis, T.
      Pages: 5 - 8
      Abstract: BackgroundDigital story telling (DST) is an innovative way to allow students to assess the care needs of an older adult and creates an opportunity for interdisciplinary involvement. Traditionally, a single healthcare discipline approach is used by higher education institutions for preclinical training in the care of the older adult. Interprofessional learning (IPL) is generally not integrated well into the health professional curricula of Australian Universities.AimTo explore the use of Mask-Ed as a way of eliciting students understanding of their roles in patient care and to determine readiness for IPL in a cohort of health students prior to clinical placement.MethodAn online survey of students prior to their first clinical placement was undertaken. The survey incorporated a digital story of a Mask-Ed character and the readiness for IPL scale.ResultsStudents recognised the importance of IPL. However, only 25% of students had an advanced understanding of their own roles and no student showed an advanced understanding of the other disciplines roles in the care of the older adult.ConclusionsIn this study, DST using Mask-Ed assisted with students' understanding of interprofessional roles in the care of the older adult. Our findings demonstrated that IPL is important, and this was further enhanced by the use of Mask-Ed simulation.

  • Quality of interdisciplinary postsimulation debriefing: 360{degrees}
    • Authors: Hull, L; Russ, S, Ahmed, M, Sevdalis, N, Birnbach, D. J.
      Pages: 9 - 16
      Abstract: IntroductionDebriefing is widely perceived to be the most important component of simulation-based training. This study aimed to explore the value of 360° evaluation of debriefing by examining expert debriefing evaluators, debriefers and learners’ perceptions of the quality of interdisciplinary debriefings.MethodThis was a cross-sectional observational study. 41 teams, consisting of 278 learners, underwent simulation-based team training. Immediately following the postsimulation debriefing session, debriefers and learners rated the quality of debriefing using the validated Objective Structured Assessment of Debriefing (OSAD) framework. All debriefing sessions were video-recorded and subsequently rated by evaluators trained to proficiency in assessing debriefing quality.ResultsExpert debriefing evaluators and debriefers’ perceptions of debriefing quality differed significantly; debriefers perceived the quality of debriefing they provided more favourably than expert debriefing evaluators (40.98% of OSAD ratings provided by debriefers were ≥+1 point greater than expert debriefing evaluators’ ratings). Further, learner perceptions of the quality of debriefing differed from both expert evaluators and debriefers’ perceptions: weak agreement between learner and expert evaluators’ perceptions was found on 2 of 8 OSAD elements (learner engagement and reflection); similarly weak agreement between learner and debriefer perceptions was found on just 1 OSAD element (application).ConclusionsDebriefers and learners’ perceptions of debriefing quality differ significantly. Both groups tend to perceive the quality of debriefing far more favourably than external evaluators. An overconfident debriefer may fail to identify elements of debriefing that require improvement. Feedback provided by learners to debriefers may be of limited value in facilitating improvements. We recommend periodic external evaluation of debriefing quality.

      Abstract: BackgroundDetermining when to entrust trainees to perform procedures is fundamental to patient safety and competency development.ObjectiveTo determine whether simulation-based readiness assessments of first year residents immediately prior to their first supervised infant lumbar punctures (LPs) are associated with success.MethodsThis prospective cohort study enrolled paediatric and other first year residents who perform LPs at 35 academic hospitals from 2012 to 2014. Within a standardised LP curriculum, a validated 4-point readiness assessment of first year residents was required immediately prior to their first supervised LP. A score ≥3 was required for residents to perform the LP. The proportion of successful LPs (

  • Evaluation of a clinical handover simulation training session for junior
           doctors in psychiatry
    • Authors: Acharya, R; Thomas, G, Hellaby, M.
      Pages: 23 - 27
      Abstract: BackgroundClinical handover is an important aspect of patient care and medical education, as identified by trainee surveys. There is a need for robust, standardised handover systems. Situation, Background, Assessment and Recommendation (SBAR) is a communication and empowerment tool for standardised communication in healthcare. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the educational impact of a simulation-based educational session in clinical handover for trainees in psychiatry, using SBAR.MethodA 3-hour session for trainees in psychiatry was designed with the North West Simulation Education Network and took place at the North Western Deanery School of Psychiatry. Presession and postsession questionnaires were completed, followed by a 6-week follow-up questionnaire.ResultsA significant improvement in participants' confidence and skills was demonstrated following the teaching session. Qualitative feedback also highlighted improved clinical application of the SBAR tool. Following the session, trainees reported an improvement in their appreciation of the role of other professionals in the handover process and a sense of empowerment when liaising with senior colleagues.ConclusionsThe training session potentially improved patient care by giving trainees structure, confidence and empowerment when talking to other colleagues while handing over. This may also help to meet the training requirements of the various Royal College curricula. This is the first study, to the best of our knowledge, which has evaluated a simulation session specifically designed to develop handover skills for trainees in psychiatry.

  • Simulation in preclinical medical student education: getting started
    • Authors: Hayden, E. M; Gordon, J. A.
      Pages: 28 - 29
      Abstract: Introduction High-fidelity patient simulation allows deliberate practice1 of clinical skills, and is now commonly deployed as an educational platform for trainees, staff and teams across healthcare. In our medical school simulation laboratory, we focus primarily on the preclinical education of medical students, prior to their patient-care rotations. This approach may seem counterintuitive at such an early stage of training, but we find it powerful as a platform to teach basic biomedical science.2 3 In this brief practice report, we review core principles of our approach for readers who wish to pursue further work at the interface of healthcare simulation and basic science education. Which cases to select? Many medical educators have historically viewed mannequin simulation as useful only for code cases; however, we use such cases sparingly and instead run simple cases of common medical symptoms (eg, shortness of breath)....

  • Synergy of wearable technologies and proficiency-based progression for
           effecting improvement in procedural skill training
    • Authors: Kallidaikurichi Srinivasan, K; Dempsey, E, O'Leary, J. D, Shorten, G.
      Pages: 30 - 31
      Abstract: The move from time-based to competence-based training has been limited by practical (often resource) issues and by the variability of effect offered by different training methodologies. Two independent advances, one technical (wearable recording devices (WRDs)) and the other methodological (proficiency-based progression—PBP),1 may act synergistically to enable consistently effective training in procedural skills. In this article, we describe our ongoing work in which both are integrated in ‘real-world’ training and the potential for these together to transform training in procedural skills. A potential synergy Although the proficiency of physicians undertaking procedural skills directly influences patient outcome,2 valid assessment of doctors’ procedural skills is yet a reality. The WRD alone will not be sufficient (as it simply enables acquisition of more data) but these devices can be central to acquiring digital recordings without consuming the learner's attention. Gallagher and colleagues have described PBP for...

  • Simulation in transoesophageal echocardiogram: a prospective observational
           study evaluating good simulation practice among anaesthesia trainees
    • Authors: Bano, F; Melvin, M, Griffin, M.
      Pages: 32 - 33
      Abstract: Simulation provides a learning environment suitable for procedures that require repetition without adding to patient risk.1–3 The Heartworks TEE (transoesophageal) Simulator by InventiveMedical is readily available to anaesthesia trainees at our centre. It allows navigation between 20 standard echocardiographic views. It consists of a high-end software loaded computer and screen, a mannequin and a dummy probe. The display consists of a 3D model of the heart, the probe position and an ultrasound image. The echo image and heart model will vary corresponding to alterations in probe orientation. This is called the haptic interface.4 This prospective, observational study was designed to evaluate the educational benefit of the Heartworks TEE Simulator as an adjunct to teaching anaesthesia trainees basic TEE. The hypothesis stated that a 1:1 trainee to instructor TEE simulation session would produce a significant improvement in post-test multiple choice questionnaire scores...

  • Recruitment barriers in surgical education research
    • Authors: Vega Vega, C; Gostlow, H, Marlow, N, Babidge, W, Maddern, G.
      Pages: 34 - 35
      Abstract: In surgical education research, enrolment of a sufficient number of surgeons is vital for the successful implementation of projects. The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) is conducting a multicentre project investigating the efficacy and feasibility of a simulated laparoscopic skills course—titled the Laparoscopic Simulation Skills Program (LSSP). The primary target population for recruitment to the LSSP are surgical trainees and junior doctors, yet their enrolment and participation has been low compared to other eligible groups. It has been reported that motivators for doctors’ participation in clinical research correlates to their desire to update their own knowledge and the possibility of helping patients.1 Our project has focused on the first of these motivators and we have continuously refined communication processes to better engage, enrol and retain our target population. We describe the benefits and pitfalls of the engagement methods used by the LSSP to provide prospective researchers...

  • Circumcision training model: assembly and use
    • Authors: Ballas, D; Graham, J. J, Ahmed, R. A.
      Pages: 36 - 36
      Abstract: The purpose of this film is to provide an educational training video on the assembly and use of a neonatal circumcision model for the training of resident physicians. The film is meant to improve resident physicians’ confidence in their ability to counsel patients and perform the procedure, while providing a resource about the procedure and its potential complications including treatment. Neonatal circumcision is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in the USA. Despite the frequency with which it is performed, it remains a procedure with little or no formal training creating an unsafe environment for patients and resident physicians. Previous research has shown a lack of confidence among residents prior to performing the procedure, with improvement following practice on neonatal models. There is no instructional media on how to build or use a neonatal circumcision model. The model we designed is cost-effective and realistic. It is...
