Welcome to the Simulcast Journal Club Podcast and monthly wrap post.
Please read our pdf summary of the Journal Club article, the month’s discussion and our expert commentary here.
Ben and Vic discuss the paper of the month, including expert commentary from our own Jesse Spurr! Is this really the holy grail of ‘proof’ for insitu sim?
Josey, K., Smith, M., Kayani, A., Young, G., Kasperski, M., Farrer, P., Gerkin, R., Theodorou, A. and Raschke, R. (2018). Hospitals with more-active participation in conducting standardized in-situ mock codes have improved survival after in-hospital cardiopulmonary arrest. Resuscitation, 133, pp.47-52.
We also discussed 3 other papers, with a theme of scenario/ simulation design.
The first two were focused on complexity science.
- Launer J. Complexity made simple. Postgrad Med J 2018;94:611–612
- Gormley, Gerard and Tara J. Fenwick. Learning to manage complexity through simulation: students’ challenges and possible strategies. Perspectives on medical education (2016).
- Wilson E, Hewett DG2, Jolly BC, Janssens S, Beckmann MM. Is that realistic? The development of a realism assessment questionnaire and its application in appraising three simulators for a gynaecology procedure. Adv Simul 2018 Nov 8;3:21
Thanks again to our listeners and contributors for a great year in 2018
