Purpose:

Patient simulation is a new and expanding technology that has proven effective as a teaching tool in various clinical settings, but data on pediatric simulation is lacking. Mock resuscitation scenarios have been shown in prior studies to be effective for improving knowledge, skill, and confidence in pediatric housestaff. Our objective is to assess the utility of a training program utilizing a human patient simulator of an infant as a teaching tool for pediatric housestaff training in resuscitation skills. We hypothesize that mock resuscitation exercises performed by pediatric housestaff on a patient simulator will result in improved performance on test scenarios when compared to the same training on a standard manikin.


Study summary:

Patient simulation is a new and expanding technology that has proven effective as a teaching tool in various clinical settings, but data on pediatric simulation is lacking. Mock resuscitation scenarios have been shown in prior studies to be effective for improving knowledge, skill, and confidence in pediatric housestaff. Our objective is to assess the utility of a training program utilizing a human patient simulator of an infant as a teaching tool for pediatric housestaff training in resuscitation skills. We hypothesize that mock resuscitation exercises performed by pediatric housestaff on a patient simulator will result in improved performance on test scenarios when compared to the same training on a standard manikin. We propose a randomized trial of pediatric residents of identical training levels from three children's hospitals. Participants will be assigned to a control group or an intervention group. The control group will undertake mock resuscitation scenarios on a standard manikin; the intervention group will perform the same exercises on a simulator. A test scenario will be administered at the end of each set of training scenarios and frequency and timing of a predetermined list of critical clinical assessments and interventions will be recorded. Analysis will consist of a comparison between control and intervention groups for success rates and time to completion for clinical assessments and interventions.
