Inter-professional OSCE Based Simulation Collaboration to Teach Obstetrics & Gynecology to Second Year Medical Students and Nursing Students
Purpose: To describe an
inter-professional workshop (IPE) utilizing simulation, OSCE and flipped
classroom to introduce 2nd year medical and nursing students to OBGYN concepts
Background: IPE has been
shown to facilitate improved patient-centered care
November 2017; students studied an online fetal heart rate (FHR) lecture; at
workshop worked in groups on clinical FHR scenarios, and presented findings for
group learning and discussions. Students rotated through three stations each
for 45 minutes as follows: 1) MFM faculty taught students on cervical dilation
using “blinded” and “open” cervical models. Students had hands-on with
obstetrical procedures such as B-Lynch Suture. 2) Students performed a
simulated vaginal delivery supervised by MFM fellow; nursing students
resuscitated newborn and gave SBAR report to medical students. 3) MFM fellow
and gynecologist faculty taught students on contraception methods while a
technician taught students IUD insertion. Students self-assessed and were
assessed by faculty using OSCE; knowledge quizzes were completed for
contraception and cervical examination accuracy.
program trained 116 (73%) medical and 51(22%) nursing students. There were no
significant differences between medical students and nursing students scores
which were respectively: IUD insertion self-assessment = 8.84 vs. 8.43; IUD
insertion faculty-assessment= 9 vs. 8; cervical examination accuracy = 13.1 vs.
12.7; contraception quiz = 9.1 vs. 9.3. Medical students
birth simulation self-assessment vs. faculty-assessment scores were 8.6 vs.
8.9, p <0.001.
Discussions: Medical and nursing
students learned OBGYN skills equally, nursing students had the opportunity to
teach medical students. Medical students were more critical of their
learning than faculty.
