Evidence Based Training
Globally, medical training bodies have begun to move from the traditional time-based form of training doctors to competency-based training. As a result, evidence is required to support the use of specific new forms of training and assessment of performance. This is referred to as “evidence-based training”.
- Does targeted educational intervention based on psychometric screening improve ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia performance?
- Effect of proficiency-based progression training on failure rate for ultrasound-guided axillary brachial plexus block.
- A proficiency-based progression simulation programme improves ISBAR performance compared to standard training. A randomised control trial.
- Construct validity of metrics for internal jugular central access insertion. Joint project with the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland and ASSERT Centre UCC.
- Effects of metrics-based vs. standard (non metric based) feedback to novices learning to perform ultrasound-guided nerve blockade, in terms of performance of ultrasound guided needle advancement and injection in a simulated setting.
