INTRODUCTION: The use of high-fidelity simulation is emerging as an effective approach to competency-based assessment in medical education. We aimed to develop and validate a modifiable anchored global assessment scoring tool for simulation-based Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) of resuscitation competence in postgraduate emergency medicine (EM) trainees. METHODS: The Queen's Simulation Assessment Tool was developed using a modified Delphi technique with a panel of EM physicians...

Some learn by hearing. Some learn by seeing. We all learn by doing. In an effort to creatively integrate skills evaluation and critical thinking in our new nurses, we developed an educational offering entitled "The Amazing Shift." In this activity, small teams of graduate nurses in our medical-surgical residency are tasked with managing simulated patient scenarios within specific time constraints, similar to managing a multipatient assignment on their unit. This "low-tech" approach has consistently been selected as one of the most meaningful classroom-based activities by the participants...

BACKGROUND: Simulation-based education has evolved as a key training tool in high-risk industries such as aviation and the military. In parallel with these industries, the benefits of incorporating specialty-oriented simulation training within medical schools are vast. Adoption of simulators into medical school education programs has shown great promise and has the potential to revolutionize modern undergraduate education. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An English literature search was carried out using MEDLINE, EMBASE, and psychINFO databases to identify all randomized controlled studies pertaining to "technology-driven" simulators used in undergraduate medical education...

Medical education is increasingly laying emphasis on a curriculum based on cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains of learning which were originally proposed nearly 50 years ago. These reforms are framed around best standards of care, error management and patient safety, patient autonomy, and resource allocation. There is a worldwide shift in the method of medical education towards experiential ('hands-on') medical learning; however, applying this concept to real patients is less acceptable to society and is subject to legal and ethical issues...

INTRODUCTION: Clerkships are still the main source for undergraduate medical students to acquire necessary skills. However, these educational experiences may not be sufficient, as there are significant deficiencies in the clinical experience and practical expertise of medical students. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: An innovative course teaching basic clinical and procedural skills to first-year medical students has been implemented at the Medical University of Graz, aiming at preparing students for clerkships and clinical electives...

CONTEXT: We critically review how medical education can benefit from systematic use of the expert performance approach as a framework for measuring and enhancing clinical practice. We discuss how the expert performance approach can be used to better understand the mechanisms underpinning superior performance among health care providers and how the framework can be applied to create simulated learning environments that present increased opportunities to engage in deliberate practice. EXPERT PERFORMANCE APPROACH: The expert performance approach is a systematic, evidence-based framework for measuring and analysing superior performance...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
