Medical Student Personal Protective Equipment Training Through Simulated Contamination
To teach medical students safe personal protective equipment doffing, we developed a low-cost, time and resource efficient curriculum using dilute, fluorescent laundry detergent to demonstrate visual evidence of breaks in doffing protocol. After two training sessions, self-contamination while doffing decreased and students’ confidence to doff improved.
