May 2002 Meeting Minutes

  1. 1. Meeting minutes from the first SAEM Simulation interest group Attendance: The meeting was well attended. There were 25 individuals present. After the meeting there were another 8 individuals who expressed interest in joining the group. There are also individuals who could not make it to St. Louis, but who have indicated they would like to join the group. The comprehensive list is below. Introductions: Please see below for the names institutions and email addresses of the group. Each member of the group briefly stated their current uses of, or interests in, simulation. Some of those uses/interests included: Teaching/research Critical care training Curriculum development for medical students Crisis resource management in emergency medicine Evaluations of Virtual Reality instruments and teaching techniques Computer based simulations for training EMS personnel Resident training Information systems testing ACLS teamwork training Discovering the potential of simulators for use in the board certification exam Validation of a scoring system for performance on the simulator Simulation for “on demand” medical student education ACLS/PALS training Training of pharmacy students/ respiratory therapists/ physical therapists IV access training Evaluating procedural competency of residents/attendings Developing CME for practicing physicians
  2. 2. Missions Statement with added definition of simulation: Definition of simulation: An exercise designed to mimic a real life situation in which the learner is given an opportunity to reason through a clinical problem and make diagnostic and treatment decisions. The SAEM Simulation interest group will: Promote the use of simulation of all types for education in emergency medicine. Promote collaboration in educational research in the area of medical simulation. Provide a forum for discussion regarding the use of simulation for assessment of clinical competence. Maintain freedom from commercial bias in our proceedings. Priorities/objectives of the group for the next year: 1. Establish the list-serve for communication among members 2. Develop a template for simulation scenarios 3. Develop a web site with a bank of simulation scenarios 4. Within the web site have a secured area for scenarios that are being used for research/validation. 5. Include an endnote simulation bibliographic database on the web site 6. Help facilitate a didactic “train the trainers” forum for SAEM 2003, to include a site visit to the Harvard simulation center
  3. 3. Biannual electronic newsletter to include: Updates on simulation High fidelity Computer Ultrasound Airway Procedural News about upcoming conferences Summaries of research coming from the conferences Election of officers for 2002-2003 were held, next election to be held at the annual meeting in Boston 2003: Chair: William Bond MD Secretary/Treasurer: Linda Spillane MD Members of the SAEM simulation interest group Name Institution Jim Ritchie Naval Medical Center Portsmouth VA Susan Promes Duke University Health System Paul Kolecki Thomas Jefferson Philadelphia Frank McGeorge William Beaumont Royal Oak MI Pail Harter Stanford University Jim McClay University of Nebraska Medical Center Marc Shapiro Rhode Island Hospital Jim Gordon Mass General / Harvard Rick Gimbel Evanston Northwestern Healthcare John Vozenilek Evanston Northwestern Healthcare

SAEM abstract no 319 Karl Ambroz, et al Correlation of the USMLE with the Emergency Residents’ In-service Exam. SAEM abstract no 328 Please keep in mind that these were just the abstracts and posters that I found. If I missed any abstract you would like to see mentioned in the listserve or in the next newsletter, just let me know. My hope is that the highlights will save people some literature search time in the future. My plan is that an endnote database on simulation can be placed on the interest group website for everyone to access/download. This database will be updated once a year. eudora/attach/meeting minutes from the first saem simulation interest group1.doc
