Die sozialmedizinische Bedeutung der Therapie-induzierten Polyneuropathie bei onkologischen Patienten

Monika Steimann
Polyneuropathies are one of the most common long-term side effects of oncological therapies. With the help of targeted clinical examinations including vibration sensation and functional tests, they are reliably detected and treated. However, therapeutic options are still limited. Validated active trainings are becoming increasingly established. Furthermore, the socio-medical relevance of therapeutically induced polyneuropathies has not been sufficiently researched. At present, there are only few data available that describe the effects of this long-term toxicity on...

Sensitivity analysis of SARS-CoV-2 aerosol exposure

Christian Redder & Christian Fieberg
As vaccination campaigns are in progress in most countries, hopes to win back more normality are rising. However, the exact path from a pandemic to an endemic virus remains uncertain. While in the pre-vaccination phase many critical indoor situations were avoided by strict control measures, for the transition phase a certain mitigation of the effect of indoor situations seems advisable. To better understand the mechanisms of indoor airborne transmissions, we present a new time-discrete model...

There are different ways to enhance physical examination (PE) skills such as simulator-based training or peer-assisted learning (PAL). Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a structured, simulator-assisted, peer-led training on cardiovascular PE. Methods: Participants were third-year medical students at Leipzig University Faculty of Medicine. Students were randomly assigned to an intervention group (IG) and...

Usage of power by different types of trainers in the education of paramedics – evaluation by means of a validated questionnaire

Melanie Misamer, Markus Flentje, Alexander Stötefalke & Hendrik Eismann
Objective: Emergency medical services are characterized by a high pressure to act. Dealing with trainees is a challenge. It is known, that the use of power in education subsists: power can be applied in a participative and restrictive way. We investigated the transferability of existing scales to the education system of Emergency medical service trainees. We hypothesized: a restrictive (a) and participative (b) use of power, can be demonstrated in Emergency medical service training, (c)...

The prognostic validity of the formative for the summative MEQ (Modified Essay Questions)

Oliver Büssing, Jan P. Ehlers & Michaela Zupanic
Objective: The purpose of formative examinations is that students and lecturers receive an early feedback regarding the success of learning behavior and teaching methods. These also serve as practice for later summative exams. The aim of this paper is to investigate to what extent the result of the formative MEQ* at the end of the first semester at Witten/Herdecke University (UW/H) in the study program human medicine can be used as a predictor for the...

Skepticism towards advancing VR technology – student acceptance of VR as a teaching and assessment tool in medicine

Steffen Walter, Robert Speidel, Alexander Hann, Janine Leitner, Lucia Jerg-Bretzke, Peter Kropp, Jakob Garbe & Florian Ebner
Objective: The high didactic potential of Virtual Reality (VR) contrasts with the point of view of students that the technology only has a relatively low significance for current and future teaching. This discrepancy was studied in a differentiated manner in order to gear the further development and implementation of VR towards the target group. Methods: From January 2020 to July 2020, medical students (N=318) were asked to watch ten videos online and rate them on...

The case space model within the OSCE framework: more clarity for the SP, examiners and students

Ulrich Pleines Dantas Seixas, Thomas Speier & Lilian Künzler

Does the understanding of one's own role or task lead to more clarity for all protagonists involved in an OSCE? Methodology: Based on the range of professional experiences and qualifications of the training team it was possible to bundle medical, acting and didactic knowledge. It was against this background that the individual understanding of one’s role was examined from its respective...

Das Cochrane COVID-19 Studienregister – eine studienbasierte, strukturierte Datenbank zur effizienten Identifizierung wissenschaftlicher Evidenz

Maria-Inti Metzendorf
During a pandemic, clinicians and scientists should be able to identify the emerging scientific evidence as efficiently as possible. A study-based register is essential for this. It should be up to date, evaluate important primary databases and increase the findability of studies by classifying them according to study characteristics. In early 2020, the surge in publications on the SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 pandemic created an urgent need for a structured database to support the rapid development of evidence-based...

Publikationsaktivität und Zitationshäufigkeit der in Deutschland tätigen Epidemiologen

H.-Erich Wichmann
Introduction: Up to now, a more detailed analysis of the publication activities and citations of German epidemiology was hardly possible because the data required for this and, above all, the assignment of the authors to the subject “epidemiology” was not available. In the Stanford list of the 2% most frequently cited scientists published in 2020, individual information on the publication activities and citation indicators is made available for the first time. These are evaluated for...

Surgical management of Miescher’s cheilitis: a case report

Juan Cámara-Pérez, José Carlo Zapata-Negreiros, Pedro Enrique Alonso & Fernando Leiva-Cepas
Miescher’s cheilitis, also known as cheilitis granulomatosa, is an infrequent disease characterized by chronic recurrent swelling of one lip or both lips. It is considered as one of the three main symptoms of the triad of the Melkersson-Rosenthal syndrome, although in many cases it may develop monosymptomatically. The initial management is based on the administration of corticoids, followed in many cases by the use of other systemic treatments. Nevertheless, because recurrence is quite frequent, surgery...
