Perioperative Complications Curriculum for the OB/GYN Resident: A Pilot Study

Purpose: To develop and implement a perioperative complications curriculum.

Background: ACGME program requirements and milestones include recognizing and managing perioperative complications.

Methods: Residents, Fellows, and Faculty were sent a needs assessment survey, addressing satisfaction with baseline perioperative complications curriculum and preferences for development of new curricula.  Additionally, Residents completed a knowledge pretest.  Over four weeks, Residents received weekly emails through the Qualtrics software program linking to topic-specific materials, including interactive, online case-based modules.  A post-implementation survey was distributed to assess Resident satisfaction with programming and to retest knowledge. 

Results: With 75% (21/28) of Residents and 47% (40/86) Fellows/Faculty completing the needs assessment survey, 95% (20/21) of Residents and 90% (36/40) Fellows/Faculty reported dissatisfaction with baseline curriculum.

The Resident pretest mean score was 72% (40-90%, SD = 15).

Interactive, online case-based modules were developed for topics including ureteral injury, bowel injury, vaginal cuff dehiscence, and bladder injury.  Curriculum materials were successfully distributed on a weekly basis to all Resident learners, as confirmed through the web-based software program.

Resident module completion rates were 50%, 36%, 29%, and 18% for weeks 1-4, respectively.

Eighteen percent of Residents completed the post-implementation survey, with 100% reporting satisfaction with the online case-based modular curriculum.  Knowledge post-test mean score was 84% (SD = 15).

Discussions: A needs assessment confirmed poor satisfaction with baseline perioperative complications curriculum.  Web-based materials were developed and distributed weekly to all Residents who successfully accessed the 4 developed modules.  While post-survey responses were few, 100% of responders reported satisfaction with the developed curriculum.
