Forty-six critical care nurses completed assessment and training in sterile technique skills in the simulation laboratory. Performance scores at baseline were poor: median scores in each category ranging from 0 to 2 out of a maximum score of 4 and a median total score of 7 out of a maximum score of 24. After simulation-based training, nurses median scores in each ST category and their total scores improved significantly, with the median total score increasing to 23 (P , .01; median difference, 15; 95% CI, 14-16). After completion of the simulation-based training intervention, the mean infection rate in the unit was reduced by 85% from 2.61 to 0.4 infections per 1000 catheter-days (P = .02). The incidence rate-ratio derived from the Poisson regression (0.15; 95% CI, 0.03-0.78) indicates an 85% reduction in the incidence of catheter-related bloodstream infections in the unit after the intervention. ...
Computer-based patient simulations have been used to enhance the dental curriculum since the 1980s. This article describes the development of CASE STUDIES for Dentistry (CSD), a patient case simulation building template, developed at Virginia Commonwealth University, with which authors who have no programming expertise can create realistic, effective, interactive multimedia patient simulations by entering their own information and images into a straightforward, fill in the blanks interface. This program was written with Authorware, by Macromedia Inc. Design considerations included emphasis on information collection and analysis, synthesis of collected information, hypothesis proposal and testing, diagnosis, and treatment planning. The program consists of easily accessible interfaces for both authors and students. Authors build simulated patients using typed-in text and their own images. Faculty can build computer-based simulated patients so that students can immediately practice what they learn ...
Background: Non-technical skills (NTS), such as communication and professionalism, contribute to the safe and effective completion of procedures. NTS training has previously been shown to improve surgical performance. Moreover, increases in NTS have been associated with improved clinical endoscopic performance. Despite this evidence, NTS training has not been tested as an intervention in endoscopy. Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a simulation-based training (SBT) curriculum of NTS on novice endoscopists performance of clinical colonoscopy. Methods: Novice endoscopists were randomized to 2 groups. The control group received 4 hours of interactive didactic sessions on colonoscopy theory and 6 hours of SBT. Hours 5 and 6 of the SBT were integrated scenarios, wherein participants interacted with a standardized patient and nurse, while performing a colonoscopy on the virtual reality (VR) simulator. The NTS (intervention) group received the same teaching sessions but the

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 ...

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 ...

The use of computer simulations in education and training can have substantial advantages over other approaches. In comparison with alternatives such as textbooks, lectures, and tutorial courseware, a simulation-based approach offers the opportunity to learn in a relatively realistic problem-solving context, to practise task performance without stress, to systematically explore both realistic and hypothetical situations, to change the time-scale of events, and to interact with simplified versions of the process or system being simulated. However, learners are often unable to cope with the freedom offered by, and the complexity of, a simulation. As a result many of them resort to an unsystematic, unproductive mode of exploration. There is evidence that simulation-based learning can be improved if the learner is supported while working with the simulation. Constructing such an instructional environment around simulations seems to run counter to the freedom the learner is allowed to in stand ...

Key aspect of ultrasound examination is that it is highly operator dependent. In ultrasound, the quality of the exam is not only depended on the equipment, but also on the skills of the operator who performs the exam.(22) Therefore, in order for the resident to perform ultrasound exam, they need to know the theoretical knowledge, able to acquire adequate images and also know how to interpret the images accurately.(23) Since ultrasound training cannot be achieve by only simulation-based learning or lectures, multimodal approach including hands-on training has been suggested.(24) For example, environment in hospital or patients clinical setting such as pain, abdominal wounds, limitation in position causes difficulties in performing ultrasound exam, which cannot be learned through didactic lectures or simulation learning with a healthy model or a manikin. For these reasons, a comprehensive training program with a variety of educational methods should be provide to the trainees.(25). Interestingly, ...

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.
