​Formål

Simulation training is proven to be a revolutionary, being interwoven into the fabrics of medical education. Currently, many medical and surgical specialties have fully integrated simulation in the structures and processes of healthcare education.

The ambitious goal of the research group is to roll out a general needs assessment (GNA) across different specialties and identify what are the clinical procedures that doctors should learn in a simulation-based environment before performing them on patients. This nationwide GNA project started with pulmonary medicine and will continue to tackle other specialties in the coming months.

The aim of this study is to identify clinical procedures in pulmonary medicine that should be integrated in a simulation-based curriculum. 

​Resume

The study uses the Delphi technique to pool ideas and suggestions from different experts in pulmonary medicine across the country. The identified clinical procedures will then be assessed and prioritized according to the CAMES Needs Assessment Formula which identifies and measures 4 different factors - Number of operators x Frequency of procedure x Impact on patient safety and comfort x Feasibility.​​
