Quantity of quality argument l.jpg
Quantity of Quality argument Healthcare

  • We have a clinical skills shortage

  • Increasing the number of students increase the burden on already overs stretched clinical mentor

  • We can provide more simulation experience but we cannot guarantee more experience on clinical placements

  • We can control the quality of simulations experience


Quantity of quality argument13 l.jpg
Quantity of Quality argument Healthcare

  • The opportunity for clinicians to develop clinical skills is often haphazard and there are examples of clinicians graduating without having been assessed or in some cases performing crucial clinical skills.

    Wall, Bolshaw, & Carolan, 2006, Medical Teacher

    Fox, Ingham Clark, Scotland, & Dacre, 2000, Medical Education

    Remmen, et. al., 2001, Medical Education

  • In the 1960s medical students received 75% of their teaching at the bedside, in the late 1970s this dropped to 16% and since then it has decreased further.

    Ahmed, & El Bagir, 2002, Medical Education

  • The acquisition of basic clinical skills suffered when there is limited supervised hands-on experience, skill levels in health are likely to drop unless alternate training methods are used.

    Remmen, et. al., 2004, Medical Education

    Seabrook, 2004, Medical Education

Safety and efficiency argument l.jpg
Safety and Efficiency argument Healthcare

  • Patient error is estimated to have a direct cost in Australia of $2 billion a year

  • Patient are treated by ‘teams’ of clinicians not by a clinician

  • Patient safety reports indicated that non-technical skills are involved in the majority of adverse events reported that cause harm

    Wilson, Runiman, Gibberd, Harrison, Newby, & Hamilton, (1995) Medical Journal of Australia

  • Other industries have become safer by a combination of standards, regulations and appropriate preventative

  • Healthcare needs to provide the right training


Team training crisis resource management l.jpg
Team training Crisis Resource Management Healthcare

Tertiary Hospital 2007

  • Births ~ 4,800

  • Annual mandatory fire drills

    • Fires = 0

  • Annual mandatory basic life support

    • Cardiac emergencies = 0

  • Maternity emergencies that occurred in 2007

    • Cord prolapse = 22

    • Placental abruptions = 41

    • Shoulder dystocia = 71

  • Maternity Crisis Resource Management MaCRM

    • 2 day multidisciplinary workshop including scenarios and structured debriefing


  • Training when where and how l.jpg
    Training – when, where and how Healthcare

    • Multidisciplinary training in healthcare is starting to occur in hospital systems with varied levels of success. Most issues arrive when clinicians undergo concurrent training rather than training as a team.

      El Ansari, Russell & Willsc (2003) Public Health

    • Australia has simulation centres that provide excellent immersive learning for technical and non-technical skills.

      • The training capacity of most centres is not limited by the number of simulators or rooms but rather by the number of instructors and the support staff available to deliver training

      • An analogy is cottage industries that provide high quality products to a small proportion of the population.

    Six critical training issues l.jpg
    Six Critical Training Issues Healthcare

    • The right blended learning environments,

    • Emphasis on the knowledge and skills likely to prevent harm,

    • Standardisation of curriculum and reliable assessment,

    • Training as teams not just as individuals,

    • The use of skilled instructors,

    • Dedicated support staff to provide efficient and accountable education.



    Questions l.jpg
    Questions Healthcare

    We can do things in simulation we cannot or should not do with ‘real’ patients

    We can apply simulation systematically and opportunistically to develop a leaner and safer healthcare system

    We can develop more simulation-based training but we cannot rely on more quality clinical training opportunities
