C15 (4): PERFORM: The Metacognitive Model to Optimise Performance during Management of Acutely Unwell Patients
Dr Helen Church
- Define ‘metacognition’ and understand how it can enhance (clinical) performance.
- Understand the PhD research project behind the PERFORM model, and how it supported doctors to better manage acutely unwell patients.
- Apply the PERFORM model to your own medical education teaching/training.
The PERFORM model, developed for a Medical Education PhD, instructs Performance Enhancing Routines application (used in sports to optimise performance) using metacognition. The multi-centre PERFORM study demonstrated self-reported improved management of acutely unwell patients by junior doctors. This session introduces PERFORM, its associated research and how to apply the model.
