An Investigation on the Perceptions of Practicing Interdisciplinary Health Professionals on Rapid Cycle Deliberate Practice Simulation

Simulation in Healthcare (04/29/21) Roszczynialski, Kelly N.; Register, Shilpa J.; Bergman, Lisa; et al.

Research studied practicing emergency medicine healthcare professionals' reactions to and perceptions of rapid cycle deliberate practice (RCDP) as a learning method. RCDP is designed to deliver structured algorithm-based clinical content in simulation. Participants — including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, respiratory therapists and patient care technicians — learned about RCDP during an orientation process to a new freestanding emergency department. Focus groups were held after the sessions to gauge the participants' reactions and the experience with several professions involved. Based on the focus groups, four themes were identified: procedural RCDP components, behavioral response to RCDP, learning via RCDP, and RCDP as interprofessional experience. Overall, the simulation was positively received and the participants agreed that said the technique was very effective for medical resuscitation training versus traditional simulation given the authenticity of the multidisciplinary aspect. "This suggests that RCDP may be an effective tool for continuing education of practicing healthcare professionals," the authors conclude.
