Airway endoscopy can be a complex and difficult task for the novice resident, said Dr. Deutsch in her oral presentation during the Combined Ototaryngology Spring Meeting here. Time constraints make it difficult for residents and faculty to work on the development of psychomotor, cognitive, and professional skills, including team resource management and leadership, she said.
We have limited control over the diversity and timing of educational opportunities that depend on direct patient care. We need to minimize direct patient risk and inconvenience within fiscal limitations, Dr. Deutsch said. Our objective was to evaluate perceived value of specific learning modalities, including the animal laboratory, high-fidelity simulation mannequin use, virtual bronchoscopy, and standardized patients’ discussions.
We devised a one-day practicum intended to improve airway endoscopy skills, she said. It was aimed at junior level otorhinological residents and pediatric surgery fellows.| ← Previous | | | Next → | Single Page
