Dr Karthik Srinivasan recieves HSE Open Access Researcher of the Year 2019 award
Dr Karthik Srinivasan recently received the HSE Open Access Researcher of the Year 2019 award from Ms Ana Terres, Deputy National Director HSE.
The award made jointly with Prof George Shorten was based on the work on proficiency based progression training in epidural placement at Cork University Maternity Hospital. “Proficiency-based progression training: an ‘end to end’ model for decreasing error applied to achievement of effective epidural analgesia during labour: a randomised control study”.
The background is that training procedural skills using proficiency-based progression (PBP) methodology has consistently resulted in error reduction. They hypothesised that implementation of metric-based PBP training and a valid assessment tool would decrease the failure rate of epidural analgesia during labour when compared to standard simulation-based training.
