BACKGROUND: Faculty member assessment of clerkship students' clinical performance has been noted as a consistently problematic issue within most medical student clerkships, and thus a worthy target of faculty development. One of the primary challenges in such faculty development is creating a change that improves the clinical assessment of students in a meaningful way. METHOD: In the current study we evaluated the effects of a pair of brief interventions designed to facilitate greater use of the 'Not observed' option in faculty member assessments of clerkship students (as opposed to use of 'Meets expectations' for skills actually not observed by the rater) within a psychiatry rotation for third-year medical students in the USA...

BACKGROUND: The time spent on ophthalmology training in medical schools has reduced over the last decades, and the number of doctors unable to solve the most basic ophthalmic problems has increased. METHODS: We conducted a questionnaire with non-ophthalmologist doctors in order to assess the confidence level of their direct ophthalmoscopy examination. This test is very important for the diagnosis of diseases that could lead to blindness, and should be learned by all medical students...

BACKGROUND: Performing eye examinations is an important clinical skill that medical students often find difficult to become proficient in. This paper describes the development and evaluation of an innovative 3D virtual reality (VR) training application to support learning these skills. METHODS: The VR ophthalmoscope was developed by a clinical team and technologist using the unity game engine, smartphone and virtual reality headset. It has a series of tasks that include performing systematic eye examinations, identifying common eye pathologies and a knowledge quiz...

BACKGROUND: Over recent years there has been a trend towards developing high-quality assessments to assess a doctor's performance in the workplace. Case-based discussion (CbD) is a form of workplace-based assessment that has the potential to provide feedback to trainees on their performance or management of a specific case. The aim of this study was to explore how CbDs are perceived and implemented in practice amongst a UK cohort of medical trainees. METHODS: This study involved 78 medical trainees at a UK hospital completing a questionnaire rating their last CbD experience, including the duration spent receiving feedback, whether it was pre-planned or ad hoc and how they responded to the feedback received...

BACKGROUND: Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) patients represent an important proportion of the population. Despite the health inequalities and barriers to health care noted within this group, there is little evidence of LGBT-focused education within medicine, dentistry or nursing. We introduced and evaluated the effect of a half-day teaching session focused on LGBT health care, delivered to year-2 students. CONTEXT: Initial informal discussion with year-2 and year-3 students suggested that the awareness of health inequalities other than sexual health was limited, and that students had little awareness of other issues such as gender dysphoria and heterosexism...

BACKGROUND: About 20 per cent of Americans will experience depression in their lifetimes, and almost all will experience the death of a loved one. Both depression and grief have been associated with adverse health outcomes, including a decline in quality of life and excess mortality. Primary care physicians (PCPs) are the initial health care contact for most patients with depression and grief, yet often perceive that they lack the skills to adequately address these issues. Previous studies have investigated whether educational efforts improve PCP depression and grief knowledge or perceived skills, but few have focused on medical residents...

BACKGROUND: Communication errors are the leading cause of preventable patient harm in medicine. There is little description in the literature of advanced techniques to teach crisis resource management (CRM) communication strategies, or how to improve real-time ineffective behaviour or habits that may persist despite appropriate behaviour and leadership witnessed in the simulation lab. CONTEXT: This article presents an advanced teaching technique to force the adoption of closed-loop communication strategies...

James Seddon
BACKGROUND: Clinic letter writing is an important communication tool in the hospital out-patient setting, serving as a record of the consultation for the hospital, confirming the information gathered and the agreed outcome with the patient, and communicating progress to the general practitioner. It is a skill, and is often poorly performed. There has traditionally been a paucity of formal teaching on the subject. CONTEXT: Classroom sessions during a regional surgical trainee year-1 'boot camp' induction, preparing new specialist trainees for the practical functions of their new roles...

James Morgan, Victoria Green, John Blair
BACKGROUND: A significant proportion of medical students feel underprepared for clinical practice, especially in skills such as decision making, prioritisation and prescribing. Changes to medical curricula, including assistantships and shadowing, provide supervised practise, but students remain unable to fully take responsibility for patient care. Simulation may assist in addressing this deficit. A simulation course entitled 'Simulated ward round and professional skills' (SWAPS) was developed to improve student preparation for clinical practice...

BACKGROUND: Rising and burdensome health care costs have driven interest in the practice of high-value care (HVC) and have inspired calls for increased HVC training across all levels of medical education, including among undergraduate medical students. CONTEXT: Classroom-based HVC curricula targeted to medical students have not been previously described in the medical literature. INNOVATION: We developed and evaluated a workshop comprising a lecture, a small-group exercise and a group discussion to instruct medical students on interpreting cost-effectiveness analyses (CEA), applying CEA to patient care and discussing the cost of care with patients...

BACKGROUND: The burden on clinicians in busy health care settings to provide teaching and supervision for students has grown as training numbers have increased, and to address this there are more short courses available to build competency, with many including multidisciplinary offerings; however, the efficacy of providing interprofessional training for clinical supervisors has not been adequately explored. METHODS: Eight hundred and seventy participants self-reported their confidence, motivation and effectiveness as a clinical supervisor prior to and after their participation in interprofessional clinical supervisor training...

BACKGROUND: University students expect to use technology as part of their studies, yet health professional teachers can struggle with the change in student learning habits fuelled by technology. Our research aimed to document the learning habits of contemporary medical students during a clinical rotation by exploring the use of locally and externally developed digital and print self-directed learning resources, and study groups. METHODS: We investigated the learning habits of final-stage medical students during their clinical paediatric rotation using mixed methods, involving learning analytics and a student questionnaire...

BACKGROUND: During basic life support (BLS) training, medical students receive little instruction on their role during a resuscitation attempt. Research is sparse regarding trainee perceptions of the resuscitation team. This study sought to describe trainee experiences and perceptions of resuscitation teams. METHODS: Clinical third-year medical students (MS3s) and incoming interns (PGY1s) reported on survey items addressing prior BLS education, knowledge of BLS, and the student's perceptions and experiences during a resuscitation attempt...

BACKGROUND: Communicating with adolescent patients can be challenging. Our study assessed the effect of structured feedback following a standardised patient (SP) encounter on postgraduate year-1 (PGY1) residents' adolescent-specific communication skills. Communicating with adolescent patients can be challenging METHODS: A two-group, prospective, double-blind randomised control study design was employed. Measures were taken before and after the intervention. PGY1 residents conducted a 30-minute interview with an SP adolescent-mother pair, who then individually scored the resident's performance using the validated Structured Communication Adolescent Guide (SCAG)...
