Improving Emergency Medicine Resident Procedural Proficiency using a HALO Simulation Curriculum (1090-002242) (Developmental Research Projects: Procedure (By Invitation Only))
Start time: Tuesday, February 2, 2021, 3:00 PM End time: Tuesday, February 2, 2021, 4:00 PM Session Type: Research Study Development and Presentation Program Abstracts
The goal of this project is to propose innovative learning techniques using Simulation to help residents improve their competency and confidence in performing high acuity, low occurrence (HALO) procedures
We will compile a list of HALO procedures done in the Emergency Department and send it to all of the emergency medicine residents in one residency program. They will mark their self-evaluated competency and preparedness to perform each procedure using the Likert scale. The procedures that are marked as “least comfortable performing” will be considered HALO procedures by our residency program. We will create Simulation cases and procedural labs that require the residents to perform these procedures. Prior to the Simulation sessions and several weeks after performing the procedure in the Simulation lab, the residents will be asked to fill out pre- and post-training session surveys to self-evaluate their competency and confidence in performing the HALO procedures. The residents will undergo HALO Simulation sessions numerous times over the course of the academic year. The team will assess the trend of how the residents feel about performing the procedure before after each Simulation.
The goal is to analyze this information to create an innovative Simulation curriculum to implement in emergency medicine residency programs throughout the country and to build emergency medicine resident proficiency and confidence in performing HALO procedures.
