Little is known about the use of mobile technology for performance-based assessment in decentralized locations. Florida State University, College of Medicine is one of the first schools to take Formative Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (FOSCEs) and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) to faculty and students in six regional campuses and residency programs.
In this presentation, Deb Danforth MS, ARNP, FAANP, director of the Charlotte E. Maguire, M.D. and TMH Clinical Skills and Simulation Center and associate professor at the Florida State University College of Medicine and James McCrea, Regional Sales Specialist at EMS will talk about how the process of implementing OSCEs through mobile simulation training eliminates some of the disadvantages of a centralized program while providing many advantages.
They will also address the ease of integration between the mobile and centralized (enterprise) technologies. Ms. Danforth is an adult nurse practitioner at Neighborhood Health, where her clinical practice focuses on the primary care of African-American and Hispanic adults. She also is an instructor at the Florida AM University (FAMU) College of Pharmacy.
She has presented regionally, nationally, and internationally on topics including OSCEs, diabetes, hypertension, self-esteem in chemically impaired nurses, basic and advanced electrocardiography, and how to use the panoptic ophthalmoscope and macroview otoscope. She has also published numerous articles and book chapters.
