TY - JOUR. T1 - A Decision Analytic Method for Scoring Performance on Computer-Based Patient Simulations. AU - Downs, Stephen. AU - Friedman, Charles P.. AU - Marasigan, Farah. AU - Gartner, Gary. PY - 1997. Y1 - 1997. N2 - As computer based clinical case simulations become increasingly popular for training and evaluating clinicians, approaches are needed to evaluate a trainees or examinees solution of the simulated cases. We developed a decision analytic approach to scoring performance on computerized patient case simulations. We developed decision models for computerized patient case simulations in four specific domains in the field of infectious disease. The decision models were represented as influence diagrams. A single decision node represents the possible diagnoses the user may make. One chance node represents a probability distribution over the set of competing diagnoses in the simulations. The value node contains the utilities associated with all possible combinations of diagnosis and ...

The use of simulation training in postgraduate medical education is an area of rapidly growing popularity and research. This study was designed to assess the impact of simulation training for instrument knowledge and recognition among neurosurgery residents. This was a randomized control trial of first year residents from neurosurgery residency training programs across Canada. Eighteen neurosurgery trainees were recruited to test two simulation-based applications: PeriopSim™ Instrument Trainer and PeriopSim™ for Burr Hole Surgery. The intervention was game-based simulation training for learning neurosurgical instruments and applying this knowledge to identify correct instruments during a simulated burr hole surgery procedure. Participants showed significant overall improvement in total score (p | 0.0005), number of errors (p = 0.019) and time saved (p | 0.0005), over three testing sessions when using the PeriopSim™ Instrument Trainer. Participants demonstrated further performance-trained

METHODS: We performed a prospective cohort study evaluating change in PEM physician competency in US-guided CVC placement before and after an educational intervention. Subjects participated in a curriculum composed of 3 sessions: an intervention session, a 2-month follow-up session, and a 12-month follow-up session. At each session, subjects were observed using US to guide CVC placement on a simulation model and technical skill was scored using a validated direct-observation checklist. Competency was defined as successfully completing 7 critical items on the checklist.. RESULTS: Of the 28 PEM physicians participating, competency improved from 32% at preintervention to 93% at 2-month follow-up (difference, 62%; 95% confidence interval, 36%-84%). At 12-month follow-up, competency remained high (85%; difference, 53%; 95% confidence interval, 32%-75%).. CONCLUSIONS: Physician competency in US-guided CVC placement improved with a simulation-based educational intervention, and the effect was ...

Abstract. Medical education during the past decade has witnessed a significant increase in the use of simulation technology for teaching and assessment. Contributing factors include: changes in health care delivery and academic environments that limit patient availability as educational opportunities; worldwide attention focused on the problem of medical errors and the need to improve patient safety; and the paradigm shift to outcomes-based education with its requirements for assessment and demonstration of competence. The use of simulators addresses many of these issues: they can be readily available at any time and can reproduce a wide variety of clinical conditions on demand. In lieu of the customary (and arguably unethical) system, whereby novices carry out the practice required to master various techniques--including invasive procedures--on real patients, simulation-based education allows trainees to hone their skills in a risk-free environment. Evaluators can also use simulators for ...

Health care organizations employ simulation-based team training (SBTT) to improve skill, communication and coordination in a broad range of critical care contexts. Quantitative approaches, such as team performance measurements, are predominantly used to measure SBTTs effectiveness. However, a practical evaluation method that examines how this approach supports cognition and teamwork is missing. We have applied Distributed Cognition for Teamwork (DiCoT), a method for analysing cognition and collaboration aspects of work settings, with the purpose of assessing the methodologys usefulness for evaluating SBTTs. In a case study, we observed and analysed four Emergo Train System® simulation exercises where medical professionals trained emergency response routines. The study suggests that DiCoT is an applicable and learnable tool for determining key distributed cognition attributes of SBTTs that are of importance for the simulation validity of training environments. Moreover, we discuss and exemplify ...

The original promise of CAE was to eliminate physical prototypes and tests, yet nearly 50 years into the journey physical prototypes are still key milestones in almost every design program. The reason why comes down to confidence; many engineers and their management simply dont trust that they get reliable results using CAE. Simulation technology is not the problem; most companies have demonstrated that when best practices are followed, results are consistent and correlate well with the physical world. Inconsistency in the application of CAE technology leads to variability in results.

Introduction: Patients under the error-prone and complication-burdened extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) are looked after by a highly trained, multidisciplinary team. Simulation-based training (SBT) affords ECMO centers the opportunity to equip practitioners with the technical dexterity required to manage emergencies. The aim of this article is to review ECMO SBT activities and technology followed by a novel solution to current challenges. ECMO simulation: The commonly-used simulation approach is easy-to-build as it requires a functioning ECMO machine and an altered circuit. Complications are simulated through manual circuit manipulations. However, scenario diversity is limited and often lacks physiological and/or mechanical authenticity. It is also expensive to continuously operate due to the consumption of highly specialized equipment. Technological aid: Commercial extensions can be added to enable remote control and to automate circuit manipulation, but do not improve on the realism ...
Background: Teaching first aid to laypeople is a cost-effective way to improve public health. However, it is currently unclear what the most effective ways are to teaching first aid. It has already been shown that simulated patients have an added value in teaching emergency care to healthcare professionals. This paper describes the protocol for a cluster-randomized controlled trial that will investigate the influence of using a simulated patient during basic first aid training for laypeople on their knowledge, skills and self-efficacy.. Hypothesis: The null hypothesis of this research is that the use of simulated patients during basic first aid training does not result in a statistically significant change in knowledge, skills and self-efficacy concerning the first aid topics for which a simulated patient is used. The alternative is that knowledge, skills and self-efficacy will be influenced by using simulated patients during training.. Methods: This study will be a cluster-randomized controlled ...

In this cluster randomized trial, we randomly assigned teams of ED staff to treat a simulated patient that either dies or does not die during simulation training sessions. We hypothesized that unexpected simulated patient death was not associated with increased anxiety. We observed that training on simulated patients with LTSs substantially decreased anxiety levels of ED workers (whether trainees, nurses, or healthcare assistants). Under the hypothesis of a mean reduction of 5 in the control group and a delta of 3, our results confirm the non-inferiority hypothesis. This trial is the second that prospectively randomizes learners to see their manikin die or not.. Controversy remains on whether the unexpected death of a simulated patient is an option in simulation-based medical education. Rodgers et al. [26] advise that professionals have to be prepared to face patients death. Training on manikins death could help develop specific skills, including improved communication with families, and could ...

Government departments are set to carry out simulation exercises to test contingency plans for dealing with any future outbreak of foot-and-mouse disease.
Nicknamed "boot camp," the training was held Monday through Friday during the month of March in the Clinical Simulation Laboratory. The curriculum covered hands-on skills training in areas such as suturing, laparoscopy, and central line placement, and featured simulation sessions, including trauma resuscitation, as well as education about safety in the operating room, medication safety, communication skills and professionalism. James employs a variety of teaching formats - classroom discussions, standardized patient scenarios, and simulation-based learning sessions - to ensure students gain the skills they will rely on as residents.. "This sort of training has gained national attention as the need for improved residency preparation has been realized," explains James. "The purpose of the program is to provide the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for optimal patient care, patient safety, and quality.". The course, which will be held annually, includes a series of assessments and ...
Despite a growing enthusiasm for simulation, there continues to be barriers to its widespread adoption. The most commonly cited reasons are resource constraints due to time, finance or an inability to access simulation centres or equipment.. Setting up a simulation centre and faculty is indeed resource intensive. It includes purchase costs of equipment, physical space, faculty time and staff time to attend simulation events. Data on the costs of simulation are infrequently reported. A systematic review of studies reporting cost of simulation-based learning found only 6% reported on cost and a meagre 1.6% compared the cost with other educational interventions.34 This paucity of data makes it difficult to convince managers in control of healthcare budgets to invest in this initial outlay. They could perhaps be persuaded more readily if we look at return on investment.. Cohen et al35 demonstrated an annual cost of simulation of $112 000 and savings of over $700 000 as a result of reduced central ...
A Cleveland neurosurgeon and two ex-Israeli Air Force R&D officers have teamed together to apply flight simulation technology to a more benevolent purpose - aiding the sick.
