Educational objectives: 

This episode is based on Question 73 on page 50 of the 2011 Step2CK Sample Exam.

Learning Objectives: the third-year medical student studying for the Step2CK exam should be able to

  • Identify the common signs and symptoms of chronic digoxin toxicity
  • Understand what agen reverses digoxin toxicity
  • Describe how digoxin can potentially affect a patient's EKG results

Abstract: 

This exercise is designed for use in small Preceptor groups led by a faculty tutor. Participants will learn by observing the videos, sharing personal experiences, and discussing precepting approaches. The exercise uses video clips of a trainee and Preceptor in a clinical setting. In each of the cases, the trainee has been assigned a patient, has performed a history and physical examination of the patient, and is now prepared to make an oral case presentation to the Preceptor. The Preceptor is ready to listen to the case presentation and give appropriate feedback on the presentation. For the purpose of this exercise, the Preceptor’s role is limited to the case presentation and feedback provision. It is assumed that the Preceptor will later go to the bedside with the trainee to examine the patient, and together they will arrive at a working differential diagnosis and management plan.

Educational objectives: 

The purpose of this exercise is to enhance Preceptor skills with challenging trainees. At the end of the exercise, Preceptors will be able to:

  • Communicate and set expectations for trainees’ performance
  • Analyze trainees’ difficulties in oral case presentations
  • Recognize and correct own improper precepting behavior and attitude
  • Recognize and correct inappropriate behavior and attitudes of challenging trainees   
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Preceptorship is an essential component of medical education and clinical training. Precepting allows education to be individualized, links classroom knowledge to real patient management problems, and provides role modeling as the trainee develops knowledge, skills and attitudes for practice. In an idealized clinical practice teaching episode, the trainee performs the assessment and makes an oral case presentation to the Preceptor with a differential diagnosis and management plan outlined. The Preceptor refines the assessment and plan, and the trainee implements the plan with assistance as needed. As trainees gain experience with more patients over time, they are expected to increase their knowledge and skills, improve practice efficiency and effectiveness, and become increasingly independent in managing patient care. The Preceptor provides feedback and support to the student and evaluation data to both the student and course chair.

Although preceptorship is usually a positive experience for both teacher and trainee, problems occasionally arise. Sometimes this difficulty is related to poor student performance. Other problems may include poor communication between student and Preceptor, characteristics of the clinic or perhaps a poor match between the learning style of the trainee and the teaching style of the Preceptor. A “challenging student” may be frustrated, anxious, bored, overwhelmed, unprepared, distracted, ill, or have a true learning disability.  Errors in knowledge or skills are typically due to limited experience, unclear expectations, and inadequate feedback rather than the result of insufficient ability, interest, or care.

When presenting this material, it is important to consider adequate time allotted for the exercise. Completion of all three cases may require a workshop as long as 2.5 to 3 hours. If only one hour is available, it is more appropriate to focus on a single case, allowing adequate time for learning, group discussion and reflection.

Abstract: 

The Function In Sitting Test (FIST) was developed as a standardized measure of sitting balance. Multiple studies have linked sitting balance to improved function and activity, improved gait outcomes, and improved abilities to perform activities of daily living. Many patient populations have sitting balance deficits including those with neurologic dysfunction and the acutely ill. The FIST is a reliable and valid measure to capture sitting balance dysfunction and changes in sitting balance. This web-based training covers the psychometrics, administration, scoring, and documentation of the FIST.

Educational objectives: 

Upon completion of this web-based training, the learner will be able to:

  • Describe the known psychometric properties of the Function In Sitting Test.
  • Examine sitting balance and function using the Function In Sitting Test.
  • Document and evaluate patient gains and results from the Function In Sitting Test.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

The documents are also available for download from the FIST website.
