Scott, L., Swartzentruber, D., Davis, C., et al. (2014). Competency in Chaos: Lifesaving Performance of Care Providers Utilizing a Competency-Based, Multi-Actor Emergency Preparedness Training Curriculum. Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. 28(4):322-33.
The authors provide a detailed description of an 8-hour interprofessional emergency preparedness training that incorporated an online pre-test, two post-tests, course assessment, didactic and small group content, and a 6-minute clinical casualty scenario using high-fidelity and low-fidelity simulators and live actors. Knowledge, comfort level, and emergency preparedness skills increased for both experienced providers, and medical students that participated in this multi-modality course.
