Introduction: Fetal abnormality screening counseling is one of the duties of midwives according to fetal abnormality screening guidelines. Since promotion of midwives clinical competence through efficient training system with modern educational methods is very important and necessary, therefore, this study was performed with aim to compare the effect of standardized patient-based training and feedback lecture on midwives clinical competence in counseling of fetal abnormality screening. Methods: This interventional randomized clinical trial was conducted on 67 licensed midwives in Mashhad in 2018. The subjects were divided into two groups of standardized patient-based training groups and feedback lecture. After doing the pre-test, a 4-hour training program was conducted for each group, and midwives clinical competence was assessed two weeks after training, using a questionnaire and a researcher-made questionnaire of clinical competency assessment. Data were analyzed by SPSS software (version ...
OBJECTIVE: To examine the increase in self-perceived clinical competence during a three-year postgraduate training in general practice and to explore the relation between the growth of self-perceived competence and several background variables. DESIGN: Cohort, 1995-1998. SETTING: Three-year Postgraduate Training for General practice in the Netherlands PARTICIPANTS: All Dutch trainees who followed postgraduate training from September 1995 to September 1998 (N=191). INTERVENTION: We asked the trainees at the start and at the end of their postgraduate training to complete a questionnaire, which assessed their self-perceived knowledge, clinical skills and consultations skills. We collected information about potentially influencing background variables. Amongst these were variables such as: age, gender, prior medical experience, the effort someone has spent upon her/his education, insight in weak and strong areas of clinical competence and knowledge and skills levels. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: ...
Quality measurement in healthcare and higher education indicates the need for a systematic approach to developing undergraduate clinical competence assessment. Validity and reliability may be undermined by differences in assessors interpretation of what is important. Differing contexts of undergraduates clinical experience could result in assessors ratings of activities being deemed less important, omitted or rendered meaningless. This study investigated the level of agreement across and within five clinical specialties in physiotherapy on the relative importance of 89 activities associated with clinical competence. One-way analysis of variance for each activity revealed 12 items differentially rated (p values = 0.05, 0.01 and 0.001). Kendalls coefficient of concordance demonstrated within-group agreement (p = , 0.000). Factor analysis of items upon which there was maximum agreement across specialties, combined with split half reliability analysis (Cronbachs alpha) resulted in eight ...
Decision-making is considered a fundamental aspect of personal autonomy and can be affected in psychiatric and neurologic diseases. It has been shown that cognitive deficits in dementia impact negatively on decision-making. Moreover, studies highlighted impaired clinical competence in neuropsychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. In this context, the current study explored the relationship between behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) and clinical competence, especially the capacity to consent to treatment, in Alzheimers Disease (AD). Seventy-one patients with mild to moderate AD participated, completing assessments for capacity to consent to treatment, general cognition and neuropsychiatric disturbances. For each neuropsychiatric symptom, patients with and without the particular disturbance were compared on the different subscales of the MacArthur Competence Tool for Treatment (Understanding, Appreciation, Reasoning and Expression). The results showed that

Objective. To estimate the inter-rater reliability and accuracy of ratings of competence in student pharmacist/patient clinical interactions as depicted in videotaped simulations and to compare expert panelist and typical preceptor ratings of those interactions.. Methods. This study used a multifactorial experimental design to estimate inter-rater reliability and accuracy of preceptors assessment of student performance in clinical simulations. The study protocol used nine 5-10 minute video vignettes portraying different levels of competency in student performance in simulated clinical interactions. Intra-Class Correlation (ICC) was used to calculate inter-rater reliability and Fisher exact test was used to compare differences in distribution of scores between expert and nonexpert assessments.. Results. Preceptors (n=42) across 5 states assessed the simulated performances. Intra-Class Correlation estimates were higher for 3 nonrandomized video simulations compared to the 6 randomized ...
The CanMEDS 2015 Special OTR Addendum is a generic document that will supplement the Objectives of Training for any discipline transitioning to Competence by Design (CBD) after July 1, 2018. The CanMEDS OTR addendum focuses on major NEW content areas in the CanMEDS 2015 Physician Competency Framework As of July 1, 2016 Program Directors in applicable disciplines will be responsible for demonstrating that their programs incorporate the CanMEDS 2015 Special OTR Addendum into their teaching and assessments of residents. This document should be read in conjunction with the discipline-specific Objectives of Training (OTR). Once a discipline has transitioned to CBD and begins to accept trainees into its revised competency based training programs this addendum will no longer apply because the new competency based program will have new national standards based on CanMEDS 2015. Note that the numbering throughout this document corresponds with the key and enabling competencies in the CanMEDS 2015 ...
Background: A high level of psychomotor skills is required to perform minimally invasive surgery (MIS) safely. To be able to measure these skills is important in the assessment of surgeons, as it enables constructive feedback during training. The aim of this study was to test the validity of an objective and automatic assessment method using motion analysis during a laparoscopic procedure on an animal organ. Material and methods: Experienced surgeons in laparoscopy (experts) and medical students (novices) performed a cholecystectomy on a porcine liver box model. The motions of the surgical tools were acquired and analyzed by 11 different motion-related metrics, i.e., a total of 19 metrics as eight of them were measured separately for each hand. We identified for which of the metrics the experts outperformed the novices. Results: In total, two experts and 28 novices were included. The experts achieved significantly better results for 13 of the 19 instrument motion metrics. Conclusions: Expert ...
In this simulator-based randomised cross-over study, 30 anaesthesiologists and anaesthesia residents from the VU University Medical Center, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, participated in two different CPR scenarios in random order. In one scenario, external stressors (radio noise and a distractive scripted family member) were added, while the other scenario without stressors served as control condition. Non-technical performance of the team leader and technical performance of the team were measured using the Anaesthetists Non-technical Skill score and a recently developed technical skills score. Analysis of variance and Pearson correlation coefficients were used for statistical analyses ...

BACKGROUND: Restrictions placed on the working hours of doctors over the past decade have resulted in substantial changes to the training and assessment of orthopaedic surgical residents. Many who are responsible for training the surgeons of the future have become concerned that this reduced clinical exposure is having a detrimental impact on technical skill acquisition. Consequently, there is a need for surgical educators to develop more objective methods for assessing surgical skill. The primary aim of this study was to determine whether a novel set of visual parameters assessing visuospatial ability, fine motor dexterity, and gaze control could objectively discriminate among various levels of arthroscopic experience. The secondary aim was to evaluate the correlations between these new parameters and previously established technical skill assessment methods. METHODS: Twenty-seven subjects were divided into a novice group (n = 7), a resident group (n = 15), and an expert group (n = 5) on the basis of
An Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is an assessment approach employed in medical education, in which residents rotate through multiple stations of standardized clinical tasks to evaluate their clinical competence. Because items used to evaluate residents performance in each OSCE station are linked to the same task and are rated by the same rater, their ratings may be dependent on one another, violating the assumption of conditional item independence that underlies the multi-faceted Rasch measurement (MFRM) model. We employed a MFRM model to analyze a communication skills assessment of 79 residents, using 6 OSCE stations, each scored on 18 five-point rating scale items. When we treated the rating on each item as a separate scoring unit, MFRM analyses showed item dependency in 65% of item pairs within an OSCE station according to Fishers Z statistic, a modification of Yens Q3 index of item dependency. This resulted in overestimation of resident separation
The report points out that the percentage mortality statistic must be interpreted with significant care due to the impact of random variation.

Bactericidal testing has been used for several decades as a guide for antimicrobial therapy of serious infections. Such testing is most frequently performed when bactericidal antimicrobial agent therapy is considered necessary (such as when treating infectious endocarditis or infection in an immunocompromised host). It has also been used to ensure that the infecting organism is killed by (not tolerant to) usually bactericidal compounds. However, few data are available to support the role of such tests in direct patient care. Several important variables affect the reproducibility of the test results; however, proposed reference methods are now available for performing the MBC test. With minor modifications, these can provide a standardized approach for laboratories that need to perform them. Currently, little evidence is available to support the routine use of such testing for the care of individual patients. However, testing of new (investigational) antimicrobial agents can be beneficial in ...
