1 thought on “Ongoing Studies”

  1. First off, I would just like to say I found the 2017 INSPIRE meeting and the IPSSW conference extremely helpful and well…inspiring. A group of us at St. Louis Childrens hospital are starting a new bootcamp program for our pediatric hospitalist group. One area that we are hoping to target is effective code leading-using closed loop communication. Are there any validated assessment tools that specifically look at effective communication skills during simulated code events? The other question we are running across is if we want to evaluate improvement in code leadership skills pre and post bootcamp, how would you eliminate bias in your evaluators? Would videotaping the simulation scenarios and then having multiple people rate the participant help eliminate bias?
    Any feedback would be appreciated.
    Thank you
