Nursing Students Teaching Medical Students: An Interdisciplinary Teaching Experience, Mary L. Zanetti, Laura A. Sefton, Janet Hale, Carol A. Jaffarian, Mitchell Cahan, Sarah M. Mcgee May 2012

Nursing Students Teaching Medical Students: An Interdisciplinary Teaching Experience, Mary L. Zanetti, Laura A. Sefton, Janet Hale, Carol A. Jaffarian, Mitchell Cahan, Sarah M. Mcgee

Sarah M. McGee

For a number of years, Advanced Practice Nursing ( APN) students have taught interested 1st year medical students to perform intramuscular injections prior to their participation in community flu clinics. When several 4th year medical students needed documentation of competency in intravenous (IV) cannulation prior to participating in an elective rotation at another institution, the Director of Interdisciplinary Partnerships in the Graduate School of Nursing requested assistance from the medical school's Dean of Students. In fact, all medical students need IV therapy training prior to graduation, not just those who seek out elective rotations at other medical schools. Integration of ...


Rolling Out A State-Of-The-Art Simulation Center: Early Experiences, Mary L. Zanetti, Laura A. Sefton, Lisa D. Atwell, Sarah M. Mcgee, Melinda F. Taylor, Susan J. Pasquale, Michele P. Pugnaire May 2012

Rolling Out A State-Of-The-Art Simulation Center: Early Experiences, Mary L. Zanetti, Laura A. Sefton, Lisa D. Atwell, Sarah M. Mcgee, Melinda F. Taylor, Susan J. Pasquale, Michele P. Pugnaire

Sarah M. McGee

The Simulation Center, opened in the Fall 2006, contains state-of-the-art simulation technology (e.g., high-fidelity adult and pediatric mannequins, task trainers, and real-time/recorded observation and scenario review via audio-visual equipment) that provides an interactive learning environment designed to replicate the clinical setting. It is available to the School of Medicine, Graduate Medical Education, the School of Nursing, and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Event facilitators (i.e., faculty or residents) were asked to assess their initial perception and utilization of the center. Presented at the 2008 Society on Simulation in Healthcare Conference.

Setting The Standard For A High-Stakes End Of Third Year Assessment, Mary L. Zanetti, Michele M. Carlin, Laura A. Sefton, Wendy L. Gammon, Sarah M. Mcgee, Michele P. Pugnaire

Sarah M. McGee

Purpose: - Conduct modified Angoff standard setting procedure due to planned move to “high-stakes” End of Third Year Assessment (EOTYA) - Assess the result of applying cutoffs to EOTYA student performance data - Analyze judges’ perceptions and confidence in setting cutoffs for three skill areas across seven Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) Presented at the AAMC (Association of American Colleges) Annual Meeting, RIME (Research in Medical Education) Program, November 2007.

 Standardized patients (SPs) are widely used in medical education but their use to assess professionalism is limited. This study investigated the utility of SPs assessing unprofessional behavior during an annual end of third year Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). Presented at the AAMC (Association of American Colleges) Annual Meeting, RIME (Research in Medical Education) Program, November 2006.


The Effectiveness Of A Geriatrics Curriculum, Susan V. Barrett, Michele M. Carlin, Stacey J. Kadish, Michele P. Pugnaire, Sarah M. Mcgee May 2012

The Effectiveness Of A Geriatrics Curriculum, Susan V. Barrett, Michele M. Carlin, Stacey J. Kadish, Michele P. Pugnaire, Sarah M. Mcgee

Sarah M. McGee

With support from the AAMC/John A. Hartford Foundation the University of Massachusetts Medical School developed a Geriatrics curriculum and faculty development that would be integrated across all four years. Beginning in Fall 2001, these were implemented over the next two academic years in both preclinical and clinical areas and are highlighted on the timeline above. Would implementation of this new Geriatrics curriculum and faculty development impact students’ ratings of instruction time in Geriatrics? Presented at the AAMC (Association of American Colleges) Annual Meeting, RIME (Research in Medical Education) Program, November 2005.


Using A Targeted Osce Station To Measure Unprofessional Behavior, Mary L. Zanetti, Eric J. Alper, Wendy L. Gammon, Kathleen M. Mazor, David S. Hatem, Sarah M. Mcgee, Michele P. Pugnaire May 2012

Standardized patients are widely used in medical education but their use to assess professionalism is limited. With grant support from the Edward J. Stemmler, MD Medical Education Research Fund (“Stemmler Fund”) of the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), the usefulness of standardized patients (SPs) in the assessment of professional behavior was investigated. A targeted professionalism OSCE station featuring a values conflict was written. A professionalism instrument was developed and subsequently revised during the course of the study, with the final version containing various components of American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) core set of eight professionalism attributes and several ...


The Use Of “Effect Size” In Augmenting The Results Of Significance Testing: A Comparison Of Pre/Post Data From A Geriatric Interclerkship, Urip Purwono, Susan V. Barrett, Michele M. Carlin, Mary L. Zanetti, Sarah M. Mcgee May 2012

The Use Of “Effect Size” In Augmenting The Results Of Significance Testing: A Comparison Of Pre/Post Data From A Geriatric Interclerkship, Urip Purwono, Susan V. Barrett, Michele M. Carlin, Mary L. Zanetti, Sarah M. Mcgee

Sarah M. McGee

Most research in medical education, when examining the impact of an intervention, report findings based primarily on significance testing despite the controversy of its appropriate use. Moreover, the p-value used to determine rejection or acceptance of the null hypothesis tells nothing about the magnitude of the significance. Using a pre/post assessment of a Geriatric Interclerkship as a case study, this study examines the utility of "effect size" measures in augmenting significance testing results.

Presented at the AAMC (Association of American Colleges) Annual Meeting, RIME (Research in Medical Education) Program, November 2004.
