September 11th, 2012: “Prop Chart” a cost-effective, visual model to analyze the effectiveness of simulation training courses

Annemarie Fransen, MD and Guid Oei, MD PhD

Training of medical staff is essential for safe patient care. The nature of a medical training can range from lectures to medical simulation with expensive simulators. However, training of medical experts can be challenging. Not only, because of hierarchical problems, but also because of fear of failure and unwillingness to change, or play a role. To support deliberate practice in learning by simulation as while simultaneously controlling costs, we developed a visual model, named the Prop chart. This chart can also be used for evaluating existing medical simulation programs. The background and the use of the Prop chart will be presented by a videoconference during the research meeting on the 11th of September.
