CORRELATION BETWEEN DIFFERENT COMPETENCES ANALYZED IN A PEDIATRIC OSCE

Introduction:
In the context of a Teaching Innovation proyect in the Pediatric Clinical Practice Subject, since the academic year 2012-13, an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is performed as student’s evaluation. Through this examination we analyze the following competencies: technical skills, anamnesis, clinical management, physical exploration, communication skills and knowledge.

Objectives:
Analyze the degree of correlation between each of the competences over 4 academic courses in which an OSCE-type exam was carried out. To observe which of them are more related and to establish strategies of improvement in the acquisition of the same ones.

Material and methods:
We analyzed the degree of correlation between competences through the Pearson Correlation Coefficient with the results obtained during the 4 years in which the OSCE was performed, in a sample of 557 students.

Results:
There were strong correlations between the following competences analyzed: clinical management and physical examination (r = 0.534) and between anamnesis and clinical management (r = 0.525). The degree of correlation was less intense between skills in communication with technical skills (r = 0.336), anamnesis (r = 0.346), clinical management (r = 0.389) and knowledge (r = 0.339). The weaker correlation was found between communication skills and physical exploration (r = 0.145) and between knowledge and physical exploration (r = 0.133).

Conclusions:
There is a low level of correlation between the acquisition of knowledge and the other competences. The strong correlation between related areas of competence can be used to implement areas for improvement.
