Research suggests that a certain level of skill decay occurs with acute care skills, often because the occurrence of emergencies in practice settings is low. However, many clinicians believe they are more skillful than they actually are, which is problematic should an emergency medical situation arise. If athletic trainers are aware of the presence of skill decay and can employ mechanisms to it, more effective patient care in an emergency medical situation may result.
Skill decay refers to the loss of or lack of retention of trained or acquired skills after periods of non-use. While practicing clinicians have been exposed to a wide variety of acute care skills during their professional preparation, unless they have sought out opportunities to practice acute care skills, there is a real possibility that skill decay has occurred, bringing into question the effectiveness of interventions utilized in an emergency situation. If clinicians understand the concept of skill decay and are aware that acute care skills decay over time, they can employ methods to counteract those effects. Information presented will include realistic ideas and mechanisms for clinicians to thwart skill decay and maintain competence in acute care skills, resulting in optimal patient care in an emergency medical situation.
