Are recent graduates enough prepared to perform obstetric skills in their rural and compulsory year? A study from Ecuador.

Sánchez Del Hierro G, Remmen R, Verhoeven V, Van Royen P, Hendrickx K - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: A negative correlation was found in the skills: 'episiotomy and repair', 'umbilical vein catheterisation', 'speculum examination', 'evaluation of cervical dilation during active labour', 'neonatal resuscitation' and 'vacuum-assisted vaginal delivery'.In this study we have noted the gap between the medical needs of populations in rural areas and training provided during the clerkship experiences of physicians during their rural service year.It is imperative to ensure that rural doctors are appropriately trained and skilled in the performance of routine obstetrical duties.

BMJOPEN2014005759F1: Differences in the relationship between the perceptions of clerkship experience and skills importance of obstetrical skills in rural doctors with negligible or negative correlations (r=0.0 to 0.3 or −0 to −0.3 or r=−0.3 to −0.5).

Mentions: We found six skills with negligible or negative correlation. In those, we show the differences in the associations between the skill importance and clerkship experience in figure 1.
