The Effect of Simulation to determine Frequency for Competency Skill Training

  1. 1. The effect of simulation todetermine frequency forcompetency skill training Renuka Mehta, MD Georgia Health Sciences University IMSH 2013: Orlando, Florida / USA International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education
  2. 2. Background • Currently annual/biannual training is required to maintain procedural/skills competency for most of the healthcare providers (HCPs) by majority of the institution. • Studies have indicated poor retention of knowledge and inability to successfully perform uncommon procedure/skills. • Without reinforcement, HCPs loose skills as early as 3-6 months after training/retraining. • Very few studies have looked into how frequently the procedures/skills be performed to maintain competency.

  3. 3. PICO Question • P: people loose skills if not exposed frequently • I: Prospective randomized Simulation intervention • C: Success with and without simulation • O: Improve confidence & performance of a HCPs and eventually patient outcome International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research and Education
  4. 4. Approach / Design Randomized, controlled study using a 3-tier strategyPre-Intervention Measurement 3-Tier ApproachConfidence Post-InterventionSkills Group 1: every 3 moPerformance/competency Group 2: every 6 mo ConfidencePatient Outcomes Group 3: every 12 Skills mo Performance/compet ency Patient OutcomesThe groups would consist of 15 residents and the frequency of retraining/testing isidentified according to the group they are randomly assigned.
