The Ohio State University MOCA Part IV Simulation Course

Routine cases comprise the majority of what practicing anesthesiologists see regularly during day-to-day practice. On the other hand, serious or critical events, while infrequent, require prompt recognition and appropriate management. When a critical event occurs, the timely and correct response by the physician can make the difference between life and death for the patient. Simulation provides a means to re-create unusual, atypical, or rare events in order for physicians and healthcare teams to gain practice in recognizing and responding to these circumstances. Debriefing provides an additional learning opportunity, as participants discuss the interpretation, decision making, actions and teamwork. Finally, practitioner performance can be objectively assessed during standardized simulated activities. For all of these reasons, simulation training in Anesthesiology provides an important practice improvement and assessment tool. The format of this course will be a live, participatory event. The educational design of the activity will be simulated case scenarios followed by a small group debriefing exercise. Learners will be given a clinical scenario in the virtual OR, using the high fidelity manikin. Participants will respond to critical events individually and as teams (with all participants having a chance to rotate through the "hot seat"). Following the scenarios, structured debriefing will be led by faculty experts. The benefit of this format is that it will meet adult learning principles and will mirror the MOCA simulation course requirements. The course will allow evaluation of performance in a simulated practice situation. The course will simultaneously provide a good learning experience for the faculty participants. The activity is designed to improve knowledge about approaches to a difficult airway, to improve technical competence and to improve the interpersonal communication and team performance in order to achieve the best patient outcome.
