Abstract:

Objectives: To determine if point distribution on an assessment form could be used to offset the differences in manipulating ampuls versus vials in evaluating students’ performance in aseptic technique in an introductory course. Methods: A 75 point assessment form was developed that distributed the majority of points for the preparation of a parenteral product among categories that were not product specific such as gowning, product set-up within a LAFW and manipulating critical sites. To become familiar with the point breakdown, PY2 students utilized the form during a mock assessment exercise in an introductory course for aseptic technique prior to the final assessment. Students had a 50% change of randomly being assigned to manipulate an ampul or vial for the final assessment exercise. Points that were product specific for either an ampul or vial were given equal value. Results: 53 students manipulated an ampul and 50 students manipulated a vial for the final assessment. An analysis of overall scores showed no statistical difference between the two groups (p = 0.028). One category that did show an advantage for students assigned to manipulate an ampul was dose calculation; of the 12 students who miscalculated the dose to be drawn, 11 manipulated vials. Implications: Initial results suggest that general aspects of aseptic technique can be evaluated without being hindered by the type of product used. Further analysis of each individual category needs to be done to determine if point distribution is biased by the properties of a specific product.
