About

In this study, Investigators are going to develop and test a device to apply virtual reality simulation to improve and help for teaching and assessment of anesthesia crisis management.

Full description

Competency based medical education (CBME) is an outcomes-based approach to the design, implementation, assessment, and evaluation of medical education. The goals of Competency Based Medical Education are to improve patient safety, patient health outcomes, and enhance the competence and performance of individuals, groups and teams. Simulation-based training is a proven effective method to improve the skills and competency of the student by permit-ting repetitive practice before an actual procedure is performed on real patients. e Virtual reality simulation has been used successfully to teach technical skills such as laparoscopic surgery, carotid stenting, gall bladder surgery, and knee arthroscopy. The specific aims of this project are: Build a multi-user, multi-site virtual reality simulator for anesthesia management and team training Evaluate the simulation as a tool for competency based medical education Compare the effectiveness of the simulator with mannequin based simulator for competency based medical education.
