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::
