  • What are the measures that can be used to assess performance during in
           situ Paediatric Emergency Medicine Simulation'
    • Authors: Mann, J. A; Roland, D.
      Pages: 83 - 87
      Abstract: BackgroundPaediatric in situ simulation within emergency departments is growing in popularity as an approach for improving multidisciplinary team working, enabling clinical skills development and exploring the importance of human factors in the clinical setting. However, measuring the success of such programmes is often through participant feedback of satisfaction and not measures of performance, which makes it difficult to assess whether such programmes lead to improvements in clinical behaviour.ObjectiveTo identify the measures that can be used to assess performance during in situ paediatric emergency medicine simulations.Study selectionA literature search of EMBASE, ERIC and MEDLINE was performed using the key terms (Paediatrics and Emergency and Simulation.) MeSH and subheadings were used to ensure all possible variations of the key terms were included within the search.FindingsThe search revealed 607 articles, with 16 articles meeting inclusion criteria. Three themes of evaluation strategy were identified—the use of feedback forms (56% n=9/16), performance evaluation methods (63% n=10/16) or other strategies (25% n=4/16), which included provider comfort scores, latent safety threat identification and episodes of suboptimal care and their causation.ConclusionsThe most frequently used method of assessment in paediatric emergency department simulation are performance evaluation methods. None of the studies in this area have looked at patient level outcomes and this is therefore an area which should be explored in the future.

  • The use of multiple-criteria decision-making theory to measure students
           perceptions of high-fidelity simulation
    • Authors: Jersby, M. A; Van-Schaik, P, Green, S, Nacheva-Skopalik, L.
      Pages: 88 - 93
      Abstract: BackgroundHigh-Fidelity Simulation (HFS) has great potential to improve decision-making in clinical practice. Previous studies have found HFS promotes self-confidence, but its effectiveness in clinical practice has not been established. The aim of this research is to establish if HFS facilitates learning that informs decision-making skills in clinical practice using MultipleCriteria DecisionMaking Theory (MCDMT).MethodsThe sample was 2nd year undergraduate pre-registration adult nursing students.MCDMT was used to measure the students’ experience of HFS and how it developed their clinical decision-making skills. MCDMT requires characteristic measurements which for the learning experience were based on five factors that underpin successful learning, and for clinical decision-making, an analytical framework was used. The study used a repeated-measures design to take two measurements: the first one after the first simulation experience and the second one after clinical placement. Baseline measurements were obtained from academics. Data were analysed using the MCDMT tool.ResultsAfter their initial exposure to simulation learning, students reported that HFS provides a high-quality learning experience (87%) and supports all aspects of clinical decision-making (85%). Following clinical practice, the level of support for clinical decision-making remained at 85%, suggesting that students believe HFS promotes transferability of knowledge to the practice setting.ConclusionOverall, students report a high level of support for learning and developing clinical decision-making skills from HFS. However, there are no comparative data available from classroom teaching of similar content so it cannot be established if these results are due to HFS alone.

  • Can agent-based simulation be used as a tool to support polypharmacy
           prescribing practice'
    • Authors: Chalk, D; Manzi, S, Britten, N, Kluettgens, B, Magura, R, Valderas, J.
      Pages: 94 - 98
      Abstract: ObjectiveWe sought to develop a simulation modelling method to help better understand the complex interplay of factors that lead to people with type 2 diabetes and asthma not taking all of their medication as prescribed when faced with multiple medications (polypharmacy).Research design and methodsIn collaboration with polypharmacy patients, general practitioners, pharmacists and polypharmacy researchers, we developed a map of factors that directly and indirectly affect somebodyâ™s decision to take their medication as prescribed when faced with multiple type 2 diabetes and asthma medications. We then translated these behavioural influences into logical rules using data from the literature and developed a proof-of-concept agent-based simulation model that captures the medicine-taking behaviours of those with type 2 diabetes and asthma taking multiple medications and which predicts both the clinical effectiveness and rates of adherence for different combinations of medications.ConclusionsThe model we have developed could be used as a prescription support tool or a way of estimating medicine-taking behaviour in cost-effectiveness analyses.

  • Residents use of mobile technologies: three challenges for graduate
           medical education
    • Authors: MacLeod, A; Fournier, C.
      Pages: 99 - 105
      Abstract: IntroductionThe practice of medicine involves, among other things, managing ambiguity, interpreting context and making decisions in the face of uncertainty. These uncertainties, amplified for learners, can be negotiated in a variety of ways; however, the promise, efficiency and availability of mobile technologies and clinical decision supports make these tools an appealing way to manage ambiguity.Mobile technologies are becoming increasingly prevalent in medical education and in the practice of medicine. Because of this, we explored how the use of mobile technologies is influencing residents’ experiences of graduate medical education.MethodsWe conducted an 18-month qualitative investigation to explore this issue. Our research was conceptually and theoretically framed in sociomaterial studies of professional learning. Specifically, our methods included logging of technology use and related reflexive writing by residents (n=10), interviews with residents (n=12) and interviews with faculty (n=6).ResultsWe identified three challenges for graduate medical education related to mobile technology use: (1) efficiency versus critical thinking; (2) patient context versus evidence-based medicine and (3) home/work-life balance.DiscussionIn this digital age, decontextualised knowledge is readily available. Our data indicate that rather than access to accurate knowledge, the more pressing challenge for medical educators is managing how, when and why learners choose to access that information.

  • Trauma resuscitation: can team behaviours in the prearrival period predict
           resuscitation performance'
    • Authors: Su, L; Kaplan, S, Burd, R, Winslow, C, Hargrove, A, Waller, M.
      Pages: 106 - 110
      Abstract: BackgroundOptimising team performance is critical in paediatric trauma resuscitation. Previous studies in aviation and surgery link performance to behaviours in the prearrival period.ObjectiveTo determine if patterns of human behaviour in the prearrival period of a simulated trauma resuscitation is predictive of resuscitation performance.DesignTwelve volunteer trauma teams performed in four simulation scenarios in a paediatric hospital. The scenarios were video recorded, transcribed and analysed in 10-second intervals. Variation in the amount of utterances per team member in the prearrival period was compared with team performance and implicit coordination during the resuscitation.Key resultsCoders analysed 18 962 s of video. They coded 5204 team member utterances into one of eight communication behaviour categories. Inter-rater reliability was excellent (an average of 83.1% across all four scenarios). The average number of communications occurring during the prearrival period was 18.84 utterances, with a range of 2–42 and a SD of 9.55. The average length of this period was almost 2 minutes (mean =117.30 s, SD=39.20). Lower variance in team member communication during the prearrival better was associated with better implicit coordination (p=0.011) but not team performance (p=0.054) during the resuscitation.ConclusionPatterns of communication in the prearrival trauma resuscitation period predicted implicit coordination and a trend towards significance for team performance which suggests further studies in such patterns are warranted.

  • The Eyesi simulator in training ophthalmology residents: results of a
           pilot study on self-efficacy, motivation and performance
    • Authors: Wisse, R. P; Coster, T, Van der Schaaf, M, Ten Cate, O.
      Pages: 111 - 115
      Abstract: PurposeTo describe ophthalmology residents’ motivation and self-efficacy during cataract surgery training and to assess the relationship of self-efficacy and motivation on both simulator (Eyesi) and real-life surgical performance.MethodsProspective cohort study using a within-subject design. Eight residents were asked to fill out questionnaires on self-efficacy and motivation towards the Eyesi simulator and real-life cataract surgery at three different moments. Simulator performance was derived from the instrument’s output. Patient charts were reviewed to assess real-life surgical performance.ResultsComparative analysis, using a paired sampled t-test, showed a significant increase in self-efficacy towards real-life cataract surgery after completing the cataract training on the simulator (p=0.005). Furthermore, we found a significant correlation between total tasks to complete the cataract training and self-efficacy scored after working with the simulator (p=0.038). Motivation towards the simulator remained stable over time and seemed not to be influenced by simulator or real-life performance.ConclusionsWe found evidence that performance on the simulator correlated with residents’ self-efficacy scored after the simulator training, supporting the theory that self-efficacy is determined by prior performance. Self-efficacy seemed inversely related to the ease of completion of a task: delivery of a greater effort leads to more satisfaction and a higher perceived self-efficacy towards this particular task. Future studies should include more subjects to provide a more accurate insight in the role of self-efficacy and motivation in training complex surgical skills.

  • Preliminary evaluation of the efficacy of an intervention incorporating
           precision teaching to train procedural skills among final cycle medical
    • Authors: Lydon, S; Burns, N, Healy, O, O'Connor, P, Reid McDermott, B, Byrne, D.
      Pages: 116 - 121
      Abstract: IntroductionA lack of preparedness for practice has been observed among new medical graduates. Simulation technology may offer one means of producing competency. This paper describes the application of a simulation-based intervention incorporating precision teaching (PT), a method of defining target skills, assessing individual progress and guiding instructional decisions, which is used to monitor learning and the development of behavioural fluency in other domains, to procedural skills training. Behavioural fluency refers to accurate and rapid responding that does not deteriorate with time, is resistant to distraction and can be adapted into new, more complex responses.MethodThis study used a between-groups design to evaluate the efficacy of a simulation-based intervention incorporating PT for teaching venepuncture among 11 medical students. The intervention consisted of timed learning trials during which participants carried out the skill in pairs and received corrective feedback. Two control groups of 11 untrained medical students and 11 junior doctors were also included in the study.ResultsIntervention group participants required an average of five trials and 21.9 min to reach the criterion for fluency. The intervention group demonstrated significantly higher accuracy in venepuncture performance than either control group. Improvements persisted over time, did not deteriorate during distraction, generalised to performance with patients and performance of an untargeted skill also improved.ConclusionsThe outcomes of this preliminary study support the application of PT within medical education. The implications of these data for clinical and procedural skills training are explored and suggestions are made for further research.

  • Medical students perceptions of the use of feature films to teach the
           mental state examination
    • Authors: Kowalski, C; Conn, R.
      Pages: 122 - 123
      Abstract: Background Existing studies have explored the use of feature films to teach undergraduate medical students about psychiatric conditions.1–3 However, there are no existing studies examining medical students’ perceptions of the use of film to teach the mental state examination (MSE)—the clinical tool by which clinicians assess and report a patient's mental state separate from any purported diagnosis. Since students are most likely to undertake an MSE when meeting patients with mental illness for the first time, it seems practically more useful for film to be used to teach this. The MSE is divided into several sections: appearance and behaviour, speech, mood, thoughts, perceptions, cognition and insight. Since portrayals of mental illness on film vary in the veracity of their depictions, focusing students’ observations on these specific areas may help prevent generalisation about how mental illness presents. We explored students’ experience of teaching...

  • Low fidelity custom-made inguinoscrotal model: educational and a social
    • Authors: Eltayeb, Y. H; Salih, A. J. M, Atkins, D. B.
      Pages: 124 - 125
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to highlight this model, which is easy to design and a useful teaching aid. Examination of male private parts can be an embarrassing experience for the patient and clinician, especially if it leads to erection during frequent palpation by inexperienced trainees. Simulation has shown to improve clinical skills of trainees to examine such intimate parts before clinical encounters1–3 Although there are various models to teach intimate clinical skills examination like rectal, pelvic, urinary and breast, there are no similar simple cheap inguinoscrotal models. This new model for clinical examination of inguinoscrotal region is the first of its kind, which is cheap, efficient and easily reproducible. Introduction Globalisation phenomena, which touched all aspects of human life, have not spared medical service or medical education. Introduction of accreditation as a benchmarking global quality standard has led to drastic...
