INTERACTIVE VIDEO SIMULATION PROGRAM
Using a "Choose Your Own Adventure" model, and featuring a point-of-view video perspective, this new medium aims to be a new way to teach Sim, by bringing the Simulation lab to the user. Specific branch points are designed to teach concepts of resuscitation.
MEDICAL SIMULATION ESCAPE ROOM
Dr. Hoffman, Dr. Mannix
Combining multiple procedures, teamwork, and problem solving, an original Escape Room was created by the Simulation Fellows (Hoffman/Mannix) for the resident classes to practice their skills and to facilitate wellness. Fall 2017 featured a Halloween themed event. A big hit with the residents, the Escape Room is again planned for 2019.
SIMULATION OLYMPICS: PROCEDURE RELAY COURSE
Dr. Hoffman, Dr. Okubanjo, Dr. Wang, Dr. Sergel
A successful combination of multiple task training and team building exercises into a singular, timely and entertaining activity is a difficult achievement. Welcome to Simulation Olympics! A nine station relay course, with team competition designed to encourage teamwork and troubleshooting of difficult procedures.
RESUSCITATION COURSE: PGY2 ASSESSMENT VIA MILESTONES VS. INSTRUCTOR GESTALT
Dr. Lexie Mannix
Revamping the PGY2 resuscitation course evaluations, Dr. Mannix endeavored to determine the validity of milestone assessments vs. faculty gestalt for residency evaluations. The most important milestones for PGY2s were determined from a wide poll of ED Attendings, and using this list, the milestone assessment was compared to attending gestalt impressions using a traditional grade scale.
RESIDENCY MORNING TEACHING SESSIONS
Residency is a time to learn, but busy ED shifts can often minimize teaching opportunities. After writing a curriculum of short 10 minute topic presentations, Dr. Hoffman established a time at the end of ED sign out/morning report on weekdays for ED Attendings to teach high yield topics with daily education points.
STRESS INNOCULATION IN A CRICOTHYROTOMY PROCEDURE
A comparison study, comparing the performance and success rate of simulated cricothyrotmy procedures performed by EM residents with audio and visual stressors, vs the control group of EM residents performing the procedure in a controlled environment without the stressors.
