Poster Abstract
Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of an educational seminar on the competence of supervision in anesthesiology residents.
Background: Anesthesiologists are often expected to supervise other anesthesia care providers during their practice. Development of a supervisory skill set is important during anesthesiology training and has a potential impact on quality of patient care.
Methods: Twenty-four senior residents supervised twelve junior anesthesiology residents during clinical encounters. Quality of supervision, using The 9-item Quality of Supervision Questionnaire validated by De Oliveira Filho, and self-perception were evaluated before and after an educational intervention consisting of a face-to-face seminar and individual workshops of ninety-minute duration, administered during a encounter.
Results: There was a significant difference between the overall means among senior residents for the quality of supervision measured by The 9-item Quality of Supervision Questionnaire, before and after the educational intervention program (3.11±0.29 vs 3.96±0.17, p<0.01). There was no significant difference between the overall means for the self-perception of the senior residents before and after the intervention program (3.51±0.54 vs. 3.48±0.20).
Conclusion: The educational intervention was effective to improve quality of supervision in senior residents, but failed to change self-perception of the supervisory process.
