Impact of simulator training and crew resource management training on final-year medical students' performance in sepsis resuscitation: a randomized trial Full Text
Minerva Anestesiologica, 08/03/2012
Hansel M et al. – Neither the 1.5days simulator training nor the 1.5days crew resource management (CRM) course did influence the clinical performance scores. Situation Awareness Global Assessment Tool (SAGAT) scores were higher after the simulator training, but not after the CRM training.Methods
- Sixty-one final-year medical students, randomized into three groups, took part in a pre-intervention test scenario of septic shock in a patient simulator setting.
- Medical performance and SA were assessed using a checklist and the Situation Awareness Global Assessment Tool (SAGAT), respectively.
- All students received a lecture about the sepsis guidelines.
- The simulator (SIM) group took part in a 1.5-day simulator training on sepsis resuscitation.
- The CRM group took part in a course on situation awareness.
- The control group (CG) did not obtain any training.
- All students accomplished a post-intervention test scenario comparable to the pre-intervention scenario.
- The SAGAT score rose from 10.6±2.3 to 11.9±1.7 (preintervention vs. postintervention test, P=0.04) in the SIM group, whereas no significant changes could be shown in the CRM group and the control group, respectively.
- The clinical performance scores in the post-intervention test did not differ from those in the preintervention test.
