On Wednesday, 8 June on 10:00 hours exactly, Joy Lee (Maastricht University) will defend her thesis ‘𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐌𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐏𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐢𝐧 𝐒𝐢𝐦𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠’.
‘The medical pause, stopping current performance for a short time for additional cognitive activities, can potentially advance patient safety and learning in medicine. Yet, to date, we do not have a theoretical understanding of why pausing skills should be taught as a professional skill, nor empirical evidence of how pausing affects performance and learning. To address this gap, this thesis investigates the effects of pausing in medical training theoretically and empirically.
For the empirical investigation, we use a computer-based simulation for the task environment, and eye-tracking and log data to assess performance.’
