  • Novel educational adjuncts for the World Health Organization Basic Emergency Care Course: A prospective cohort study AFRICAN JOURNAL OF EMERGENCY MEDICINE Straube, S., Chang-Bullick, J., Nicholaus, P., Mfinanga, J., Rose, C., Nichols, T., Hackner, D., Murphy, S., Sawe, H., Tenner, A. 2020; 10 (1): 30–34


    The World Health Organization's (WHO) Basic Emergency Care Course (BEC) is a five day, in-person course covering basic assessment and life-saving interventions. We developed two novel adjuncts for the WHO BEC: a suite of clinical cases (BEC-Cases) to simulate patient care and a mobile phone application (BEC-App) for reference. The purpose was to determine whether the use of these educational adjuncts in a flipped classroom approach improves knowledge acquisition and retention among healthcare workers in a low-resource setting.We conducted a prospective, cohort study from October 2017 through February 2018 at two district hospitals in the Pwani Region of Tanzania. Descriptive statistics, Fisher's exact t-tests, and Wilcoxon ranked-sum tests were used to examine whether the use of these adjuncts resulted in improved learner knowledge. Participants were enrolled based on location into two arms; Arm 1 received the BEC course and Arm 2 received the BEC-Cases and BEC-App in addition to the BEC course. Both Arms were tested before and after the BEC course, as well as a 7-month follow-up exam. All participants were invited to focus groups on the course and adjuncts.A total of 24 participants were included, 12 (50%) of whom were followed to completion. Mean pre-test scores in Arm 1 (50%) were similar to Arm 2 (53%) (p=0.52). Both arms had improved test scores after the BEC Course Arm 1 (74%) and Arm 2 (87%), (p=0.03). At 7-month follow-up, though with significant participant loss to follow up, Arm 1 had a mean follow-up exam score of 66%, and Arm 2, 74%.Implementation of flipped classroom educational adjuncts for the WHO BEC course is feasible and may improve healthcare worker learning in low resource settings. Our focus- group feedback suggest that the course and adjuncts are user friendly and culturally appropriate.

  • Physically Distant, Educationally Connected: Interactive Conferencing in the Era of COVID-19. Medical education Rose, C., Mott, S., Alvarez, A., Lin, M. 2020


    During the coronavirus outbreak, physical distancing restrictions led to the cancellation of live, large-group events worldwide. This included weekly educational conferences required of Emergency Medicine (EM) residency programs in the United States. Specifically, the Residency Review Committee in EM under the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education has mandated that there be at least four hours per week of synchronous conference didactics.

  • Spokes for Our Folks: Public Health Bike Tour. AEM education and training Rose, C., Chang, B., Brown, J. 2019; 3 (4): 393–95


    Nearly half of medical care in the United States is managed through the emergency department, a large portion of which could be managed by "lateral" health services provided by public health facilities like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prophylaxis, alcohol and drug treatment programs, emergency psychiatric resources, and medical respite or rehabilitation centers. These options may be underutilized due to lack of knowledge of their services and demographics by patients and health care workers alike. We aimed to educate all levels of emergency medicine trainees and staff to citywide services via bike tour. Participants reported an improved understanding of health services as well as a sense of "camaraderie" toward lateral health services and other providers on the rides.
