#1
Gerard J Gormley, Carl Brennan, Martin Dempster
CONTEXT: Wrong-sided procedures represent some of the most catastrophic errors in health care. Although errors in laterality are multifaceted in origin, human error is considered to be an important root cause. Evidence suggests that a significant proportion of the population, including medical students, experience difficulty in left-right discrimination (LRD). Given that not all medical students have equal LRD ability, there have been calls to raise awareness of this issue in medical education...

REVIEW
Markus A Feufel, John M Flach
CONTEXT: Ample research suggests that most decisions are based on heuristics-simple rules of thumb-that violate prescriptions of logic and probability theory and should therefore be avoided. Yet findings on decision making in everyday work contexts support the idea that heuristics are in fact the very basis of good decision making if adapted to the challenges and performance criteria of the specific work domain. Because traditional pedagogies aim at circumventing heuristics in (clinical) decision making, ways in which to improve the use of heuristics via (medical) education have rarely been explored...

Emily O'Dowd, Sinéad Lydon, Paul O'Connor, Caoimhe Madden, Dara Byrne
PURPOSE: This review aimed to synthesise some of the extant work on the use of entrustable professional activities (EPAs) for postgraduate physicians, to assess the quality of the work and provide direction for future research and practice. METHOD: Systematic searches were conducted within five electronic databases (Medline, Scopus, Web of Science, PsycINFO and CINAHL) in September 2018. Reference lists, Google Scholar and Google were also searched. Methodological quality was assessed using the Quality Assessment Tool for Studies with Diverse Designs (QATSDD)...

BACKGROUND: Although averaging across multiple examiners' judgements reduces unwanted overall score variability in objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE), designs involving several parallel circuits of the OSCE require that different examiner cohorts collectively judge performances to the same standard in order to avoid bias. Prior research suggests the potential for important examiner-cohort effects in distributed or national examinations that could compromise fairness or patient safety, but despite their importance, these effects are rarely investigated because fully nested assessment designs make them very difficult to study...

BACKGROUND: The skills and qualities of effective clinical educators are linked to improved student learning and ultimately patient care; however, within allied health these have not yet been systematically summarised in the literature. AIMS: To identify and synthesise the skills and qualities of clinical educators in allied health and their effect on student learning and patient care. METHOD: A systematic search of the literature was conducted across five electronic databases in November 2017...

CONTEXT: Medical school admissions committees use a variety of criteria to determine which candidates to admit to their programmes. Effective communication is increasingly considered a key requisite to the practice of effective medicine. Medical students with pre-medical backgrounds in the humanities and social sciences may be more likely to acquire skills relevant to patient-centred communication, either prior to or during medical school. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between pre-medical backgrounds in the humanities and social sciences and outcomes in medical school, including in communication and interpersonal skills (CIS), licensure examination results and postgraduate specialty choice (primary care versus non-primary care specialties)...

OBJECTIVE: The Resident Activity Tracker Evaluation (RATE) is a prospective observational study evaluating the impact of work hours, sleep and physical activity on resident well-being, burnout and job satisfaction. BACKGROUND: Physician burnout is common and its incidence is increasing. The impact of work hours and sleep on resident well-being and burnout remains elusive. Activity trackers are an innovative tool for measuring sleep and physical activity. METHODS: Residents were recruited from (i) general surgery and orthopaedics (SURG), (ii) internal medicine and neurology (MED) and (iii) anaesthesia and radiology (RCD)...

CONTEXT: Medical image perception training generally focuses on abnormalities, whereas normal images are more prevalent in medical practice. Furthermore, instructional sequences that let students practice prior to expert instruction (inductive) may lead to improved performance compared with methods that give students expert instruction before practice (deductive). This study investigates the effects of the proportion of normal images and practice-instruction order on learning to interpret medical images...

CONTEXT: Good judgement and the ability to make complex decisions are key attributes of a skilled professional. There has been limited study of doctors and their decision making, particularly in relation to making complex decisions. The study aims were to understand how trainee doctors develop practical wisdom through investigating their approach to difficult decision making, understanding the influences on the development of practical wisdom, and identifying potential interventions that may help develop this further...

CONTEXT: Repetition of a cognitive ability test is known to increase scores, but almost no research has examined whether similar improvement occurs with repetition of interviews. Retest effects can change the rank order of candidates and reduce the test's criterion validity. Because interviews are widely used to select medical students and postgraduate trainees, and because applicants apply to multiple programmes and often reapply if unsuccessful, the potential for retest effects needs to be understood...
