  1. 1. A VIRTUAL PEDIATRIC SIMULATOR (VPS) FOR EMERGENCY SCENARIO TRAINING OF MILITARY MEDICAL PERSONNEL James Gerard1, Anthony Scalzo1, Marc Auerbach2, David Kessler3, Todd Chang4 1Saint Louis University; 2Yale University; 3Columbia University; 4Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles INSPIRE @ IMSH 2014: San Francisco, California, USA International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education
  2. 2. Background • Two-year, ONR-funded project to develop a webbased serious game for 6 high-stakes pediatric emergency scenarios (respiratory failure, septic shock, etc.) • 1st year - INSPIRE and military subject matter experts working with BreakAway, Ltd. to develop the game. • 2nd year - conduct user testing and initial construct validation studies at SLU and 3 military sites. • ONR will transition VPS to application (AFMMAST?). • End of 2nd year, 5-9 INSPIRE sites will have access to the program. International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education
  3. 3. Approach / Design • 60 subjects (20 med students, 20 residents, 20 PCCM/PEM). Written Test Play 3 Scenarios (Performance Data) Game Demo Play 3 Scenarios (User Testing) Post-Game Survey/Interview (Perceptions Data) • User testing/perceptions data used to refine the game. • Performance data used to assess convergent/discriminant validity of the game. International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education
  4. 4. PICO Question • P: Novice, intermediate learners • I: Serious game for training • C: Traditional training • O: Cognitive performance International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education
  5. 5. 3 Questions to improve study 1. In addition to the initial validation studies, how should we further validate the VPS? 2. How do we begin to integrate the VPS into existing training curricula (who, when, how)? 3. What thoughts do others have regarding additional future directions of the VPS?
