Who is Being Assessed or Evaluated?:
Observer-based (e.g., rubric, rating tool, 360 degree feedback)
Notes for Type:
The tool was designed to assess teamwork during resuscitation attempts, and could be used on videorecorded attempts in the hospital, or during "live," "real time" simulation-based training. In the real-time feasibility study, students performed CPR in the simulation lab using high fidelity manikins (SimMan: Laerdal). The scenarios were adapted from the Resuscitation Council (UK).
Source of Data:
Health care providers, staff
Notes for Data Sources:
In the real time feasibility study, raters were experienced clinicians who taught a one-day life support class and assessed students in final scenarios.
Notes for Content:
Three categories of teamwork behaviors are represented:
- Task Management
An additional final question is included on global team performance.
12 questions; time would vary with the emergency resuscitation event
Eleven 5-point Likert-type questions ranging from 0 (Never) to 4 (Always); a single 10-point global item ranging from 1 to 10.
In the real time feasibility study, students were assigned to one of three teams. Three experienced resuscitation trainers/clinicians (one per team) taught emergency life support skills to one team during the day and assessed a different team during the final five scenarios, recording the TEAM ratings immediately after each scenario.
Authors suggest summing the categories and/or summing the eleven item total.
