There is growing evidence of greater rates of morbidity and mortality in hospitals during out-of-hours shifts, which appears to be exacerbated during the period in which newly qualified doctors commence work. In order to combat this issue, an online simulation of a night shift was developed and trialled in order to improve the non-technical skills of newly qualified doctors and, ultimately, improve clinical outcomes. A randomised feasibility trial of the electronic training simulation was performed with medical students (n=30) at the end of their training and in the initial weeks of working at a large teaching hospital. The study showed that participants in the intervention group completed their non-urgent tasks more rapidly than the control group: mean (SD) time to complete a non-urgent task of 85.1 (50.1) versus 157.6 (90.4) minutes, p=0.027. This difference persisted using linear regression analysis, which was undertaken using rota and task volume as independent cofactors (p=0.028). This study shows the potential for simulation technologies to improve non-technical skills.
