OBJECTIVE To determine whether the presence and behavior of a family witness to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) impacts critical actions performed by physicians. DESIGN This was a randomized comparison study of physicians' performance during a simulated cardiac arrest with three different family witness states. SETTING This study was conducted at(More)
OBJECTIVES Human patient simulation (HPS), utilizing computerized, physiologically responding mannequins, has become the latest innovation in medical education. However, no substantive outcome data exist validating the advantage of HPS. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of simulation training as compared with case-based learning (CBL)(More)
Early diagnosis of persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) through diagnostic testing and screening is a critical priority for individual and public health. Emergency departments (EDs) have an important role in this effort. As EDs gain experience in HIV testing, it is increasingly apparent that implementing testing is conceptually and(More)
OBJECTIVES Team situational awareness (TSA) is critical for effective teamwork and supports dynamic decision making in unpredictable, time-pressured situations. Simulation provides a platform for developing and assessing TSA, but these efforts are limited by suboptimal measurement approaches. The objective of this study was to develop and evaluate a novel(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the impact of a low-resource-demand, easily disseminated computer-based teamwork process training intervention on teamwork behaviors and patient care performance in code teams. DESIGN A randomized comparison trial of computer-based teamwork training versus placebo training was conducted from August 2010 through March 2011. (More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the knowledge of probable outcome by medical personnel for in-hospital and out-of-hospital cardiac arrests, and self-reported history of CPR training referrals for family members of cardiac patients. METHODS One hundred people from each of three population lists were randomly selected at a large, urban school of medicine(More)
