EAMS Teach the Airway Teacher (TAT) Instructor Course

The vision of the EAMS TAT-Course is to increase the teaching competences of clinical airway teachers in airway skills teaching, as well as human factors teaching like leadership, team performance and patients’ safety. The general goals of the EAMS TAT-Course are to amplify the teaching tool box of clinical airway teachers, to discuss and learn new approaches to teach effectively in the busy clinical environment by fostering collegial exchange between the participants. Airway management is one of the core competencies in anaesthesiology, critical care and emergency medicine. These skills are hard to teach through books or lectures. Personnel in the critical care area mostly teach the establishment of a patent airway in busy clinical environment of patient encounters very often without formal teaching programs for these clinical airway teachers. EAMS created the TAT-course to fill in the gap, to teach clinicians, and to promote modern didactic in airway management training. Most airway teaching
happens during clinical patient care, but also during structured airway management courses. TAT will address that too.The EAMS TAT Instructor course follows modern didactic principles. The flipped classroom concept
provides time for preparation and acquisition of knowledge on teaching. Recently an e-learning part was added facilitation participation of a broad audience and reducing needed on-site teaching. On-site learning is dedicated to practice, discussion, rehearsal, and collegial exchange in small groups and plenary discussions. Essential is the transfer of learned into the participants’ teaching practice. Post-course assignment will foster that and leads to achieve the EAMS-Airway Teacher Masterclass certificate. The course program covers the general structure of an airway teaching session, the organization of airway courses and sessions, approach to adult learning, facilitation of motivating learners, teaching of complex psychomotor skills and human factors, debriefing, effective feedback and assessment, feedback, and debriefing of learners during airway management teaching. Pre-course reading, e-learning and post-course assignments deepens the learning success. The Masterclass EAMS TAT Faculty are experienced airway teacher specially trained in education during the EAMS TAT Instructor Course.
