Checklist Use in Evaluating Pediatric Disaster Training
Burke, R.V., Lehman-Huskamp, K., Whitney, R.E., et al. (2015). Checklist Use in Evaluating Pediatric Disaster Training. (Abstract only; free registration required.) American Journal of Disaster Medicine. 10(4).
The authors tested the use of a premade checklist of care intervention requests by residents at four different academic pediatric residency programs who participated in a tabletop simulation of a pediatric disaster scenario requiring them to properly triage and manage simulated patients. They concluded that checklists are a valuable tool for use in medical education, and give users immediate feedback on their decisions.
