CMS faculty and colleagues publish findings on simulation for anesthesia education

Over the past several months, Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) Faculty and colleagues have published two articles on simulation for anesthesia education.

Using Simulation for Resident Assessment:  Center for Medical Simulation faculty member Rick Blum and Executive Director Jeff Cooper and colleagues Jack Boulet and Sharon Muret-Wagstaff report on the development and testing of simulation-based assessment for first year anesthesia residents.  The article entitled “Simulation-based Assessment to Identify Critical Gaps in Safe Anesthesia Resident Performance” is available here:

Using Simulation to Improve Feedback to Residents: Center for Medical Simulation faculty members Rebecca Minehart, Jenny Rudolph, May-Pian Smith, and Dan Raemer report on their randomized, controlled trial to study the quality of anesthesia faculty feedback. The article entitled “Improving Faculty Feedback to Resident Trainees during a Simulated Case: A Randomized, Controlled Trial of an Educational Intervention” is available here::
