Theme Issue EditorialThe use of multimodality simulation in the evaluation of physicians with suspected lapsed competence

AbstractA simulator-based educational program has been incorporated into many anesthesia residency training programs. The effectiveness of this method of teaching has been validated by several studies and is generally accepted as an effective method of resident education. Evaluation of performance and positive critical feedback through debriefing has been attributed to the effectiveness of simulator-based education. Perhaps, this process can be used to evaluate the competence of practicing physicians. We report our experience using multimodality simulator technology to assess physicians who may have allowed their competence to lapse. We discuss our simulator-based assessment process and the strengths and limitations of our program. We also discuss the legal ramifications of participating in such assessments. Because of confidentiality agreements signed by all parties involved with this process, cases are discussed in general terms to assure anonymity.

Special articleThe use of multi-modality simulation in the retraining of the physician for medical licensure

AbstractPatient simulation has been widely incorporated into the educational programs of many anesthesiology residencies. These educational tools have been validated by a number of studies and have been recognized by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) as effective means of teaching domains of competency. The ACGME and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) have also recognized that these tools are effective devices for competency evaluation of resident and attending physicians. The use of simulation for both retraining and evaluation of a physician for medical licensure is presented.

Special articleSimulation-based Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA) course optimization: use of multi-modality educational activities☆☆☆

AbstractIn 2010, the American Board of Anesthesiology instituted a new Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA) Part IV activity requiring diplomates to attend and self-reflect on a simulation-based course in an American Society of Anesthesiologists-endorsed program. Although there are certain course requirements, much of the curriculum and structure of these MOCA activities is left to the discretion of the participating endorsed program. The ideal course would emphasize multimodality simulation-based activities that optimize diplomate education and satisfaction, while economizing faculty requirements. We describe of our course structure and content as a potentially useful template.
