GREIF, Diego et al. Capacitación de residentes de ginecología en urgencias obstétricas mediante simulación clínica. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.1, pp.46-52. ISSN 1688-0390.

Abstract Introduction: the need to preserve patients’ safety during the learning process has determined that medical training based on the use of simulation has become an ethical must. Objective: to describe a workshop developed to at the Pereira Rossell Hospital Center to train residents in the resolution of frequent critical situations in obstetrics through clinical simulation. Method: the program aimed at residents of Clinica Ginecotocológica “A”. Seventeen residents took part in the workshop which used simulation as a learning instrument for the first time in our country. Two clinical scenarios were designed, and the goal is for residents to act as if it were a real situation. The workshop covers a clinical list, and in certain cases actors take part - pretending they are patients. A certain number of items were assessed by their peers, before and after the test and a course satisfaction survey was prepared. Results: a significant higher rate of correct answers was evidenced in the post-test when compared to the pre-test (92% and 69% respectively), p<0,001. All participants agree on the usefulness of clinical simulation, pointing out it enables their reflecting on their daily practice. Conclusions: simulation is a favorable initiative to develop the medical education area, since it allows a space for students to develop skills before facing real patients with a greater degree of confidence.
