BACKGROUND Benefits of skills lab training are widely accepted, but there is sparse research on its long-term effectiveness. We therefore conducted a prospective, randomised controlled-trial to investigate whether in a simulated setting students trained according to a "best practice" model (BPSL) perform two skills of different complexity (nasogastral tube(More)
BACKGROUND This paper is an up-to-date systematic review on educational interventions addressing history taking. The authors noted that despite the plethora of specialized training programs designed to enhance students' interviewing skills there had not been a review of the literature to assess the quality of each published method of teaching history taking(More)
BACKGROUND Chest compressions are a core element of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. Despite periodic training, real-life chest compressions have been reported to be overly shallow and/or fast, very likely affecting patient outcomes. We investigated the effect of a brief Crew Resource Management (CRM) training program on the correction rate of improperly(More)
BACKGROUND Physical clinical examination is a core clinical competence of medical doctors. In this regard, digital rectal examination (DRE) plays a central role in the detection of abnormalities of the anus and rectum. However, studies in undergraduate medical students as well as newly graduated doctors show that they are insufficiently prepared for(More)
BACKGROUND It is unknown what aspects of undergraduate surgical curricula are useful for future non-surgeons. We aimed to define relevant, enduring learning achievements for this subgroup to enable student-centered teaching. METHODS An online questionnaire using open ended questions was distributed to physicians of non-surgical specialties at the(More)
Recension The issue of communication in the doctor-patient-relationship is of uttermost importance and has additionally gained a central position in medical education ever since its importance has been stressed through the novellation of the German Medical Licensure Act in 2012 as well as within the German National Catalogue of Learning Objectives. It is(More)
BACKGROUND Patient chart review is the gold standard for detection of potential patient hazards (i.e. medication errors or failure to follow up actionable results) in both routine clinical care and patient safety research. However, advanced medical students' ability to read patient charts and to identify patient hazards is rather poor. We therefore(More)
BACKGROUND Resuscitation is a life-saving measure usually instructed in simulation sessions. Small-group teaching is effective. However, feasible group sizes for resuscitation classes are unknown. We investigated the impact of different group sizes on the outcome of resuscitation training. METHODS Medical students (n = 74) were randomized to courses with(More)
