Descriptive Information
Brief Title Critical Care EEG Course
Official Title Teaching the Basics of Electroencephalography to Critical Care Teams
Brief Summary

Knowledge of the basic fundamental skills of electroencephalography would enable medical and nursing staffs to provide efficient and effective bedside EEG monitoring in critically ill patients.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of a 10-points EEG teaching program to allow bedside caregivers (medical and nursing intensive care unit staff) interpreting EEG in the critical care setting.

Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type Observational
Study Design Observational Model: Other
Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration Not Provided
Biospecimen Not Provided
Sampling Method Non-Probability Sample
Study Population Critical care medical and nursing staff
Condition
  • Electroencephalogram
  • Intensive Care Units
  • Teaching Intervention
Intervention Other: Critical Care EEG Course

Medical and nursing staff will be given a 10-points EEG face-to-face initial training course followed by an online teaching and educational quizzes at day-1, day-15 and day-30 after initial training. A final evaluation will be performed at day-90 after beginning of the training course.

10-points EEG educational objectives : physiological rhythms, reactivity, symmetry, effects of sedation, burst suppression, paroxysmal activities, periodic / pseudoperiodic activities, rhythmic activities, artifacts, null EEG

Study Groups/Cohorts Educational program

Medical and nursing staff will be given a 10-points EEG face-to-face initial training course that will be preceded by a pre-test evaluation and followed by delayed post-test evaluations.

Training will be followed by an online teaching consisting on additional questions and answers quizzes based on the 10 educational goals already described elsewhere.

In order to avoid any risk of intrasite contamination, all the learners benefiting from the training in the same department will be trained in a uniform time, with respect to the training schedule regarding post-test evaluations (day-1, day-15 and day-30). A final evaluation will be performed at day-90 after beginning of the training course.
