INTRODUCTION: Our simulation center, supported by four departments (Surgery, OB/GYN, Urology, and Anesthesiology), is accredited as a comprehensive Accredited Educational Institute (AEI) and is now expanding to accommodate all departments on campus. METHODS: A 61-point questionnaire was administered to 44 stakeholders, representing all of UME and GME. Data were compared for AEI vs. non-AEI activities. RESULTS: Responses were collected from all 44 groups (100% response rate). Overall, 43 simulation activities were hosted within the AEI and 40 were hosted by non-AEI stakeholders. AEI activities were more likely to be mandatory (93% vs. 75%, p = 0.02), have written learning objectives (79% vs 43%, p < 0.001), and use validated assessment metrics (33% vs. 13%, p = 0.03). CONCLUSION: These data suggest that the AEI courses are more robust in terms of structured learning and assessment compared to non-AEI courses. Campus-wide application of uniform quality standards is anticipated to require significant faculty, course, and program development.

Medical errors can involve multiple team members. Few curricula are being developed to provide instruction on disclosing medical errors that include simulation training with interprofessional team disclosure. To explore more objective evidence for the value of an educational activity on team disclosure of errors, faculty developed and assessed the effectiveness of a multimodal educational activity for learning team-based disclosure of a medical error. This study employed a methodological triangulation research design. Participants (N = 458) included students enrolled in academic programs at three separate institutions. The activity allowed students to practice team communication while: (1) discussing a medical error within the team; (2) planning for the disclosure of the error; and (3) conducting the disclosure. Faculty assessed individual student's change in knowledge and, using a rubric, rated the performance of the student teams during a simulation with a standardized family member (SFM). Students had a high level of preexisting knowledge and demonstrated the greatest knowledge gains in questions regarding the approach to disclosure (P < .001) and timing of an apology (P < .001). Both SFMs and individual students rated the team error disclosure behavior highly (rho = 0.54; P < .001). Most participants (more than 80%) felt the activity was worth their time and that they were more comfortable with disclosing a medical error as a result of having completed the activity. This activity for interprofessional simulation of team-based disclosure of a medical error was effective for teaching students about and how to perform this type of important disclosure.
