Multidisciplinary trauma team education through trauma video review (TVR) is a useful performance improvement tool, but video recording resuscitations may cause providers anxiety. We examined perceptions of educational value and anxiety associated with being reviewed in TVR. Trauma team members were asked to complete an anonymous online survey. Educational scores (E scores) and anxiety scores (A score) were calculated from survey responses. Respondents were divided into groups by roles: trainees (T; medical students, residents, and fellows), attending surgeons (A), and nurses (N). Kruskal-Wallis test was used for statistical testing. A total of 39 subjects completed the survey (T = 17, 43%; A = 8, 23%; N = 14, 35%). TVR scored high in educational value (median E score 90; IQR = 78-96) but provoked moderate anxiety (median A score 27; IQR = 20-36). No significant differences in E scores were seen between groups. A scores were not significantly different between groups N and T (20 vs 33; P = .11) or groups T and A (33 vs. 35; P = 1.0) but were significantly higher in group A than in group N (36 vs 20; P = .04). Despite perceptions of educational value, TVR is associated with anxiety among providers, which is different between groups. Continued assessment of perceptions regarding TVR may allow for modifications to maintain educational value while decreasing anxiety.
