Differential performance in SIMBA simulation-based training sessions between healthcare professionals from low-and-middle income and high income countries suggests targeted education is needed to reduce the gap

Balakrishnan Harshin Pallathoor , Warmington Emily , Zhou Dengyi , Cuen Pan Carina Synn , Team SIMBA and CoMICs , Kempegowda Punith

Introduction: The global migration of healthcare professionals has enabled those trained in low-and-middle income countries (LMICs) to move and work in high-income countries (HICs) and vice-versa. While medical licensing exams in HICs are designed to assess competency of the immigrating HCPs, there is limited literature on the differences in approach to manage clinical cases between those from LMIC and HIC. Simulation via Instant Messaging – Birmingham Advance (SIMBA) is ...

DKA registry: A step towards harmonising management of diabetes-related ketoacidosis in the United Kingdom-initial findings

Cooper Catherine , Rengarajan Lakshmi , Birchenough Amy , Sheikh Haaziq , Hebbar Meghnaa , Cuen Pan Carina Synn , De Parijat , Narendran Parth , Kempegowda Punith

Background: Diabetes-related ketoacidosis (DKA) is a common and potentially life threatening complication in people with diabetes. Despite national and international guidelines, interhospital guideline variation and mismanagement during admission are important contributory factors to increased DKA duration and length of stay.Aim: To establish a common DKA registry to identify gaps in management, assess outcomes and share best practises across centres.</p...

Understanding and improving the management of hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state

Cuen Pan Carina Synn , Warmington Emily , Rengarajan Lakshmi , Cooper Catherine , Owen Megan , Sheikh Haaziq , Anilkumar Anjitha , Dhatariya Ketan , Webber Jonathan , Kempegowda Punith

Background: Hyperosmolar hyperglycaemic state (HHS) is an acute metabolic complication of diabetes that can lead to significant morbidity and mortality if managed incorrectly. With <1% prevalence, there is limited published literature available on HHS and most management guidelines worldwide are based solely on expert advice and opinions.Aims: To study the precipitating causes and identify baseline practises of HHS management, to highlight areas for ...

Background: Serious complications of diabetes-related ketoacidosis (DKA) and its management with fixed rate insulin infusion (FRIII) include hypoglycaemia, hyperkalaemia and hypokalaemia. Revised Joint British Diabetes Societies for Inpatient Care (JBDS) guidelines in July 2021 recommended a reduced rate FRIII of 0.05 units/kg/hour from 0.1 units/kg/hour once blood glucose levels fall to ≤14.0 mmol/l to alleviate the risk of these complications.Aim...

Comparing global rating scores from simulation-based diabetes and endocrine scenarios between healthcare professionals of high- and low- and middle-income countries

Abdi Zakee , Zhou Dengyi , Malhotra Kashish , Ali Anisah , Sheikh Jameela , Sakthivel Pavithra , Warmington Emily , Cuen Pan Carina Synn , Chen Wentin , Kaur Harjeet , Nirmal Rachel , Soran Vina , Allison Isabel , Evans Nia , Delson Dwi , Davitadze Meri , Kempegowda Punith , Simulation Simba

Background: Simulation via Instant Messaging - Birmingham Advance (SIMBA) is an online simulation learning modality designed to recreate clinical scenarios, allowing participants to increase their confidence in a safe environment without compromising patient safety. The global rating scale (GRS) is a commonly used assessment tool in medical schools to assess participant competence and skills. Following SIMBA sessions, an independent assessor anonymously scores participants&#14...

Evaluating a novel virtual simulation tool for clinical training to improve clinician confidence managing cases in diabetes and endocrinology

Chen Wentin , Ponniah Gobeka , Hebbar Meghnaa , Sheikh Jameela , Zhou Dengyi , Malhotra Kashish , Evans Nia , Warmington Emily , Ali Anisah , Rezai Fatema , Allison Isabel , Cuen Pan Carina Synn , Nirmal Rachel , Sakthivel Pavithra , Soran Vina , Abdi Zakee , Kaur Harjeet , Delson Dwi , Piya Simran , Melson Eka , Davitadze Meri , Kempegowda Punith , Simulation Simba

Introduction: The delivery of medical education has transformed from in-person to remote teaching, accelerated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Simulation is a useful teaching modality increasingly used to develop healthcare professionals’ knowledge and skills while protecting patients from unnecessary risks. Although simulation has traditionally occurred face-to-face, many of its principles can be adapted for remote teaching. Simulation via Instant Messaging – Birm...
