ACS Surgery Resident OSCE DVD ACS Surgery Resident Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) DVD
08ML-0001

The ACS Surgery Resident Objective Structured Clinical Examination was developed as a tool for assessing the entry level knowledge and skills of PGY-1 surgery residents in delivering safe care to surgery patients with critical and life-threatening conditions. The OSCE is intended as a formative evaluation tool for providing residents with constructive feedback regarding their management of critical situations that they are likely to encounter, particularly when they are on call. Ten scenarios have been developed that unfold during a 10-minute clinical encounter and a five-minute written post-encounter. Cases include the traditional use of standardized patients (SPs), as well as telephone conversations and encounters with standardized nurses and medical students. The OSCE is designed for use by any residency program, regardless of previous experience with OSCEs or availability of a SP training program or facility. This program includes two parts: a CD that provides all the written materials and instructions needed to prepare for and administer the OSCE, and a DVD that provides a gold standard performance of each clinical scenario being portrayed by a SP and resident. This project was supported by grant number U18 HS12021 from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

Developed by the American College of Surgeons Division of Education. 2008.

Communicating w/ Patients about Surgical Error DVDCommunicating with Patients about Surgical Errors and Adverse Outcomes (DVD)
07KC-0002

This educational DVD (Windows and MAC platform) addresses the essential principles of communicating with patients about surgical errors and adverse outcomes. Research has revealed that physicians and patients have very different perspectives regarding these issues, and this DVD presents viewpoints of each group. Critical concepts for understanding and approaching conversations regarding surgical errors and adverse outcomes are presented by Drs. Thomas Gallagher and John Banja during surgical grand rounds at Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, GA. In addition, three vignettes involving a retained sponge, an operating room burn, and a common bile duct injury depict surgeons interacting with patients in these scenarios using a variety of strategies and approaches. Discussion points for each vignette are provided.

The content does not provide legal advice, nor does it establish a standard of care for disclosing surgical error. It is also a valuable tool for teaching and group discussion purposes with surgeons, residents, or medical students. This project was supported by Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Grant number U 18 HS12021. Developed by ACS Division of Education. Please note continuing education credit (CME) is not available for this product.

Disclosing Surgical Error Vignettes DVD Disclosing Surgical Error: Vignettes for Discussion (DVD)
06KC-0001

This educational DVD (Windows and MAC platform) provides teaching tools to stimulate dialogue regarding strategies for communicating effectively about surgical errors and adverse outcomes with patients and their families. The vignettes on the DVD involve a surgeon who encountered major arterial bleeding after inserting a Veress needle to insufflate the patient’s abdomen during a routine laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The scenes depict the surgeon discussing the error and current status of the patient with the family, and may be used as the basis of discussion regarding the disclosure of errors and adverse events, as well as effective and ineffective approaches to disclosure. The DVD’s vignettes—the first of which illustrates an interaction in which the disclosure could be improved significantly, while the second vignette demonstrates strategies for breaking bad news more effectively—may be used as freestanding trigger tapes for small group discussions with surgeons, surgical residents, or medical students, or may be incorporated into a comprehensive course.

The content does not provide legal advice, nor does it establish the standard of care on disclosing surgical error. This project was supported by the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality Grant U18 HS12021 and is free of charge. Developed by the ACS Division of Education.
