Workshop 19: Rapid cycle deliberate practice: Training the Trainer

Wednesday, May 16
11:00 - 12:30
Location: Universe 3

Course Goal or Outcome: : Develop increased understanding of RCDP and how to teach new instructors to use RCDP

Learning Objectives: : Define RCDP and contrast it with traditional simulation, highlighting and demonstrating specific methods and educational content best suited for this technique. Outline key components of an RCDP teaching sequence. Be able to demonstrate RCDP micro-debriefing. Practice training a new instructor to use RCDP

Intended Audience: : Intermediate/ advanced simulation instructors

Relevance to the Conference: : This workshop will include opportunities for participants with varied learning styles to advance their knowledge, skills and attitudes towards implementation of RCDP debriefing. The workshop will have an embedded active learning component, in which participants actively demonstrate debriefing skills as well as teaching with a new methodology. The large number of facilitators will allow for all learners to be engaged during the group exercise.

Workshop Timeline: : 1. (15 minutes) Introduction, disclosures, objectives. Define RCDP and highlight RCDP with active demonstration. 

2. (20 minutes) Didactic and large group discussion 
1. RCDP teaching tips 
2. Train the trainer video 3. Brainstorm implementation of teaching model to institutions
3. (45 minutes) Small group sessions. Actively practice giving feedback to a new debriefer
4. (10 minutes)- Final debrief, conclusions, evaluations

Karen E Patricia, MD MEd is an Assistant Professor in the department of Pediatrics at Baylor College or Medicine/Texas Children's Hospital. Her primary location is the new community campus in The Woodlands, Tx where she practices Neonatology at 3 local hospitals in the Community Initiatives Program. My initial research was on Rapid Cycle Deliberate Practice and NRP and she is continuing her practice of simulation as a member of the Simulation Team for the TCH Woodlands Campus.

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Neonatology
Program Director of Neonatal Simulation
Department of Pediatrics
Baylor College of Medicine
Texas Children's Hospital

I am an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Neonatology at Baylor College of Medicine, and the Director of Neonatal Simulation at Texas Children’s Hospital. During my Neonatology fellowship at Yale University Hospital, I have developed interest in simulation and medical education. I became an instructor at the SYN:APSE Simulation Center at Yale-New Haven University Hospital. As I started my faculty position at Baylor College of Medicine, I became one of the leaders of the Quality and Safety Council at Texas Children’s Hospital.
As a Pediatrician and a dedicated Neonatologist, I view caring for neonates and children a humbling honor and privilege. Parents place what they hold most dear, fully and willingly in our trust, and we are given the opportunity to care for these babies at their most vulnerable time. It is a necessary and serious responsibility to ensure that we “Do No Harm” that might affect those delicate, fragile babies and children for the rest of their lives. I am committed to using simulation as a strong tool to ensure quality and safety of patients in our medical care.

Cara B. Doughty, MD, MEd

Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Director of Simulation
Baylor College of Medicine
Houston, TX

I am currently an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine, Medical Director of the Texas Children’s Hospital Simulation Center, and Co-Director of the PEM fellowship. I also serve as a member of the IPSS Board of Directors. My interests lie in medical education and the use of simulation to improve medical education, especially related to resuscitation and patient safety.

I have created and directed multiple simulation curriculums over the past 10 years, reaching thousands of learners. Courses include multidisciplinary ED in situ simulation; PediStepps, a simulation-based course on pediatric resuscitation for Houston Fire Department, which has trained over 1500 EMTs and paramedics, with funding from the Cullen Foundation for Healthcare and City of Houston. In addition, I lead PEM fellows simulation training, and have received educational grants to study rapid-cycle deliberate practice for multidisciplinary teams. Procedural simulation programs include intern procedural skills training, and chest tube workshops (also grant-funded). I am involved in the INSPIRE network, and served as site PI for the QCPR leaderboard study. I have presented workshops and lectures locally, nationally, and internationally on simulation-related topics.
