 223. Procedural Skills in a 3D Printed World (Fishhook Removal, Adult IO, Peds IO)

Friday, April 22nd at 11:30 - 12:30

Description : 3 X 3-5 mins PowerPoint for overview of the 3 procedure topics

Then Rotate through 3 stations of 15 mins each of a 3D printed: Fishhook Removal Task Trainer, Pediatric Intraosseous Injection Simulator, Adult Tibia for Intraosseous

Rural emergency departments (ED) represent a challenging clinical environment often lacking access to resources and subspecialty assistance. Typically staffed by local family physicians, this environment requires technically-skilled practitioners with the confidence to perform procedures effectively. Some procedures in rural medicine happen infrequently, therefore requiring hands-on training to refresh skills. Unfortunately, there is a scarcity of cost-effective, anatomically correct trainers to improve physician confidence and competency in procedural skills. In this workshop, we promote 3D-printed models for simulation-based medical education (SBME), to build confidence and competence in rural skills.   

Three medical students from Memorial University of Newfoundland, in conjunction with CIRRIS (Carbonear Institute for Rural Reach and Innovation by the Sea), designed and field-tested three models for SBME - Fishhook Removal FISH-ER, Adult Intraossessus and Pediatric Intraossessus.

Objectives

1. Attendees will have an overview of each technique then an opportunity to use the 3D-printed models for experience with the procedures.

2. This interactive session will encompass specific, immediately applicable procedural skills experience for rural physicians. Attendees will be able to immediately employ methods in their own community ED’s.

 249. Hands-on Practice on Three Dimensionally (3D) Printed Simulators in the Context of Training for Rural and Remote Practice (3 hours)

Friday, April 22nd at 13:30 - 17:00

Description : Additive manufacturing (AM), such as 3D printing, is disrupting simulation based education. The benefits include customization of simulators to fit any context while reducing costs. The overarching purpose of this workshop will be to allow the attendees to practice four (4) technical skills on 3D printed simulators.

This will be a 3-hours hands on experience (40 minutes per skills/station). Specifically, a group of 32 participants will be divided into four small sub groups (8 participants per group) and each group will be able to practice skills on four (4) simulators: suturing, cricothyrotomy, perineal repair, and tibial IO. Each group of eight will consist of four practicing physicians, two residents and two medical students. The instructions and feedback will be provided by a faculty member. Peer assisted learning (PAL) strategies will also be employed within each group.

Objectives

Demonstrates proficiency, as determined by the application of formative Objective Structured Assessment of Technical Skills (OSATS) global rating scales and skills specific checklists, when performing the following skills on 3D printed models:

a. Suturing

b. Cricothyrotomy

c. Perineal repair

d. Interosseous (Tibial)
