Apoyando las Transiciones en las Trayectorias de la Carrera Medica: El Papel de la Educación Basada en Simulación

¿Aun no ha revisado la revista Advances in Simulation Journal? ¡Grandes noticias! es gratis para todos en línea gracias a la gente en SESAM. Acabo de revisar “Apoyando las Transiciones en las Trayectorias de la Carrera Medica: El Papel de la Educación Basada en Simulación” por Jennifer Cleland y otros, ¡y nos pareció muy útil para que todos nosotros lo consideremos!

Acerca de Advances in Simulation Journal

Advances in Simulation proporciona un foro para compartir la práctica académica con el objetivo de avanzar en el uso de la simulación en el contexto de la atención médica y social. Advances in Simulation publica artículos que abarcan todas las disciplinas científicas y de las ciencias sociales, todas las profesiones de atención médica y social, así como estudios multi e interprofesionales. La revista incluye artículos relacionados con la simulación que incluyen el estudio de la práctica de la atención médica, factores humanos, psicología, sociología, antropología, comunicación, trabajo en equipo, rendimiento humano, educación, tecnología de aprendizaje, economía, ingeniería biomédica, computación científica, modelado de simulación, estudios de población, teatro, artesanía, evaluación de programas y más.



Abstracto

Las transiciones o períodos de cambio en las trayectorias de la carrera médica pueden ser episodios difíciles que requieren que el profesional clínico en transición asuma nuevos roles y responsabilidades, se adapte a las nuevas dinámicas culturales, cambie los patrones de conducta y que maneje exitosamente la incertidumbre. Estos períodos de aprendizaje intensivo presentan riesgos para la seguridad del paciente. La educación basada en la simulación es un enfoque pedagógico que permite a los profesionales clínicos practicar sus habilidades técnicas y no técnicas en un ambiente seguro y de este modo aumentar su preparación para la práctica. En este comentario, presentamos los potenciales usos, fortalezas y limitaciones de la educación basada en simulación para apoyar las transiciones en las trayectorias de la carrera médica, discutiendo la utilidad educativa, evaluación de resultados y procesos, y el costo y el valor e introduciendo una nueva perspectiva al considerar las ventajas de la Educación Basada en Simulación. Proporcionamos ejemplos de casos de estudio en los que se aplica la Simulación Basada en Educación para ilustrar estos puntos y estimular la discusión.

Conclusiones

Incrementar la preparación de los docotores para llevar a cabo las técnicas y comportamientos requeridos para asi cumplir con las responsabilidades de cualquier nuevo papel que desempeñan es importante para la seguridad del paciente, la eficiencia del servicio y el bienestar psicológico individual. Mientras que el verdadero dominio de un rol no puede lograrse hasta que uno se sumerja en el mismo lugar de trabajo[6], la literatura indica que podemos avanzar algún trecho con la preparación de los individuos para los elementos técnicos y no técnicos de cualquier nuevo rol, y de hecho los retos psicológicos asociados, a través del uso juicioso e imaginativo de la Educación Basada en Simulación. En este trabajo, hemos proporcionado una visión general de algunos de los factores clave asociados con planificar y evaluar la Educación Basada en Simulación para transiciones.

También hemos destacado una serie de áreas para investigación futura en la Educación Basada en Simulación para dar apoyo a las transiciones de la carrera médica. Estas incluyen el desarrollo de la comprensión en torno a los factores prácticos que deben ser considerados al diseñar Educación Basada en Simulación, que van desde entregar retroalimentación y la incorporación de medidas de resultado a largo plazo hasta el análisis de la costo-efectividad del enfoque que está llevandose a cabo, así como las influencias socio-culturales sobre el aprendizaje en entornos simulados. Instamos a los que trabajan en la investigación de la Educación Basada en Simulación a considerar la mejor manera de identificar y evaluar los resultados concretos específicos para este propósito. Sigue existiendo la necesidad de una mayor investigación sobre el uso de la Educación Basada en Simulación para apoyar la transición de estudiante de medicina a médico residente, pero instamos a los que trabajan en esta área a que no dejen de examinar el uso de la Educación Basada en Simulación para apoyar posteriores transiciones de la carrera médica donde “los alumnos” están trabajando con menos supervisión y una responsabilidad cada vez mayor, aún cuando se mantengan aparentes problemas (en gran media no técnicos) pertinentes a la seguridad del paciente.

Monivent’s Neo Newborn Ventilation Device for Training & Practice – SESAM Exhibitor Video Interviews Part 3

ventilation trainer for newborns

Finishing off our coverage of the SESAM 2016 Lisbon event, which included interviews for Accurate’s PickUpSim Ovum Collection Simulator and Audio/Video Recording Platform from Zyos, today we learn about Monivent’s Neo ventilation device for newborns that can be used for simulated training and in actual practice!

About the Neo Ventilation Device

Monivent Neo helps the caregiver make the necessary adjustments to ensure an effective and gentle treatment during manual ventilation of newborns unable to breathe spontaneously. This monitoring device is an add-on to existing manual ventilation equipment.The airflow is wirelessly measured directly in the face mask and feedback on several critical parameters, such as tidal volume, are continuously shown on the external display to guide the caregiver. The device will be used as a tool to improve learning in simulated ventilation training on manikin. Most of the functionality is the same as described above, however the training device gives the user more freedom to utilize stored data to view personal development and more.

About the Company

Monivent is a young medtech company dedicated to improve the emergency ventilatory care given to newborn babies in need of respiratory support at birth. About 3-6 % of all newborns end up in this situation, where healthcare personnel today are lacking tools to determine how effective this manual ventilation really is. This can result in two major risks; inadequate volumes causing insufficient gas exchange and failed resuscitation while excessive volumes can result in over-expansion of the lungs causing lung injuries as well as extrapulmonary injuries, especially in babies born very prematurely.

SESAM’s Clinical Simulation Conference with Dubai Update

Helen Henderson, Lead Simulation Educator from the Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor Medical Simulation Center in Dubai Healthcare City provided an update about the 3 year partnership between SESAM and the Dubai based simulation center for simulation conferences. Helen shared details about the past 3 years of events and invited attendees to the International Medical Education Conference in Dubai at the newly renamed Mohammad Bin Rashid Medical University March 2nd – 4th 2017, with the tagline “Health Professional Education in an Interconnected World”.

Plenary Address by Faizal Haji

Following this, Faizal A. Haji provided the presentation “Promises and pitfalls simulation in resource-limited settings”, highlighting updates from the International Pediatric Society in Simulation’s work to develop simulation training support for the African country of Malawi. Malawi, with a population of about 15 million only has about 1/3 of the health workforce it needs to serve its citizens. IPSS has been working with the Malawi Ministry of Health in 2013, starting with a needs assessment of the clinical training services available to healthcare professionals within the country using field notes, key interviews, site visits, and simulation demonstrations. When the number of healthcare professionals was increased, clinical training was reduced because of a lack of faculty — and the quality of providers drastically decreased over the past 10 years. The team investigated the use of telesimulation training to provide education across long distances live with visual aids. While the training programs worked, there was still a need to provide hands-on training but the time to receive such training was extremely limited. While resources such as simulation technology are available (through donations), but because of the limited clinical faculty training was rare.

Faizal highlighted the research article “Development of a simulation and skills centre in east Africa: a Rwandan – Canadian partnership” which succeeded because of:

  1. Long-term partnership
  2. Identification of need for dedicated funding for space/staff
  3. locally driven curriculum
  4. Ongoing mentorship beyond the initial train-the-trainers program.

Faizal concluded by reminding us that we need to be understanding of the health systems we are building simulation programs for, and that we are absolutely able to address high level system issues with low resource simulations to then do focused programatic training in key issue areas.

  • Partnerships make the project work
  • Context matters and educational interventions don’t exist in vaccuum
  • Process matters: how you implement training is just as important to consider as the content itself
  • Bad Habits are hard to fix so be sure to start training programs strong!

Stay tuned to this article for updates throughout the day, and follow the action on #SESAM2016!

22nd Annual Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine Event Opens in Lisbon Portugal

sesam-2016

Today in Lisbon Portugal more than 700 healthcare simulation champions from around the world met for the 22nd annual Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM).

You can watch the event LIVE on facebook here!

The president of the Portuguese Simulation Society, the Director of the Portuguese Medical Association, and the Portuguese Administer of Health helped to introduce the event which took place at the Lisbon Conference Center near the San Francisco Bridge.

society in europe for simulation applied to medicine

SESAM President Antoine Tesniere thanked the international attendees and reminded them about the event’s opportunities to network, learn, and collaborate

Lou Oberndorf, Founder of METI, introduced the opening keynote lecture series with his name speaking to SESAM as a fellow pioneer in healthcare simulation, being one of the oldest organizations in the world dedicated to the field. “20 years after we have launched this innovative technology and now, virtually any place in the world, you could go into almost every medical school, and many of the nursing schools, and encounter simulation”. Lou challenged the audience to avoid complacency, and to constantly ask for more innovation from one another and from vendors. He then announced his honor at introducing the keynote speaker

Opening Keynote Address by Dr. Rick Satava

satava sesam 2016 Dr. Richard Satava MD FACS, Professor Emeritus of Surgery at the University of Washington Medical Center spoke to the topic of “Next Generation Curriculum and Technology for Simulation”.

He focused his talk on demonstrated development and alid of curriculum competency preliminary proficiency based progression methodology using the fundamentals of robotic surgery as an exemplar.

Dr. Satava asked the audience to consider “Does this training things safer for my patient?” He shared with proficiency-based progression training to consistently meet a high level of skill now and increase that ability as learners move down the line. He then shared how his team built learning devices first through simulated animation to perfect the model before creating a physical prototype. With these prototypes, learners must prove competency with a measured qualitative experience with specific benchmarks, and are not allowed to continue onwards until each step is proven proficient.

For new technologies, Dr. Satava highlighted future laser technologies which will provide non-invasive surgeries and advances in 3d printing. He then closed by reminding us that healthcare technology is neutral, and sooner than later, humans will evolve thanks to use of these technologies.

Registered delegates will be able to watch the keynote sessions live on their mobile devices and watch the recordings after the event from the comfort of their home.

*Afternoon Session Update:

Flinders University Professor Harry Owen published the work “Simulation in Healthcare Education”, and provided a breakdown of key historical updates including the first auscultation simulator in 1867 and various OB simulators from the 18th century! About the book: Simulation in healthcare education has a long history, yet in many ways, we have been reinventing the wheel during the last 25 years. Historically, simulators have been much more than simple models, and we can still learn from aspects of simulation used hundreds of years ago. This book gives a narrative history of the development of simulators from the early 1700s to the middle of the 20th century when simulation in healthcare appeared to all but die out.  It is organized around the development of simulation in different countries and includes at the end a guide to simulators in museums and private collections throughout the world.  The aim is to increase understanding of simulation in the professional education of healthcare providers by exploring the historical context of simulators that were developed in the past, what they looked like, how they were used, and examples of simulator use that led to significant harm and an erosion of standards. The book is addressed to the healthcare simulation community and historians of medicine. Buy it through the link below:

Afternoon Plenary from SSH President Dr. Chad Epps

Dr. Epps, Executive Director of Simulation at UTHSC and President of SSH, started his plenary with a breakdown about improv, connecting the performance style to healthcare simulation.

As a clinician, and not an educator, Chad shared how he started considering some key questions after building a training assessment criteria for his anesthesiology residents. How did he know his checklist for assessment was valid? How valid was this tool? As, perhaps a tool designed for professional ED professionals would not work that well for an academic setting with residents. And beyond that — how competent was the assessors?

Dr. Epps then shared some resources for assessment development in simulation including the Assessment Standards of Best Practice in Simulation from INACSL and the SSH Accreditation Standards in Assessment. He also recommend the book “Defining Excellence in Simulation Programs” — which you can buy below:

As a surgeon and educator, Faizal has a passion for improving health services though the innovative and evidence-based use of simulation-based education, both at home and abroad. To that end, his efforts have focused on simulation instructional design, platform and curriculum development, and faculty development in simulation pedagogy in a variety of clinical domains and at a local, national, and international level. Currently, as a member of the IPSS-WFPICCS-Malawi collaboration, he is working with the Malawi Ministry of Health and other stakeholders to strengthen Malawi’s capacity to develop and deliver simulation-based education within the limits of its resource-constraints. The goal of this collaboration is to use simulation and other innovative educational methods to generate sustainable improvements in the delivery of pediatric health services throughout the country.

Social Events

Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and the oldest in Western Europe, predating other modern European capitals such as London, Paris and Rome by centuries.  According to legend, the location was named for Ulysses, who founded the settlement after he left Troy to escape the Greek coalition. Later, the Greek name appeared in Vulgar Latin in the form Olissipona. Julius Caesar made it a municipium Felicitas Julia, adding to the name Olissipo.
