    PEDS 5097 - Use of a Sim Env to Practice Pat Assement, Initial Mgmt, Common Proc Skills, and Patient Safety Prin



    For centuries, medical education has relied on the apprenticeship model of “see one, do one, teach one,” and the inexperienced trainee developed their skills while practicing on patients. In this model of training, trainees are inexperienced and lack confidence in resuscitation of sick patients and in basic procedures when they begin their internship. Performing resuscitation and procedures for the first time on real patients with the attendant is no longer acceptable to society or to the trainee as the risks and consequences for harm are too great. Simulation training represents a paradigm shift in medical education that allows for safe skill development. Supervising physicians and residency programs can now optimally prepare providers in a safe environment, away from the patient, before allowing them to perform a procedure on a patient. Students can learn from their mistakes through reflection, discussion, and repetition. Simulations may be created as needed, allowing for students to learn at their level and pace. Simulation learning may even decrease the duration of necessary training. This short course will help participants in understanding the role of simulation in understanding the inherent risks involved in management of a sick patient and possible remedies to improve patient safety.

    This course is a seminar review and an update of pharmacologic topics. A National Board examination package has been assembled from the last 7 released exams. The questions are grouped according to topics and questions are identified by year. At each session, students will register their responses to selected questions (either exact or modifications of those which have appeared on the National Board Examinations) utilizing a computerized program. The program allows instantaneous display of percentile distribution of answers to each question and thereby class performance on each question. After students have attempted each question and results have been displayed, the faculty will provide information as to why a particular answer is correct and the distracters are wrong. The extent of discussion for each question will depend on the class performance on each question. Approximately 25-30 questions on designated topics will be attempted during each scheduled session.
