13 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Show Me in Latin America Homer L. Rodriguez, RRT, FAARC Executive Director, Latin American Board for Professional Certification in Respiratory Therapy

14 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Goals of the Latin-American Certification Program To improve the quality of life for patients in Latin-America suffering from respiratory disease. To delineate the role of the respiratory therapist in the participating countries and minimize the differences in practice. To establish a base for courses of study in respiratory care. To establish a means of recognition for a professional level of competency.

15 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Latin American Respiratory Therapist Practice Analysis Starting point Survey adaptation Survey distribution Results review Lessons learned

16 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Starting point Participating countries –Colombia –Costa Rica –Guatemala –Mexico –Panama –Venezuela –Argentina

17 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Starting point Initial work began in 1998 Participants chose to adapt a recently validated task inventory from a study conducted in the United States in 1997

18 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Survey adaptation The task inventory was translated to Spanish A committee including representatives from each country reviewed the task inventory Relevant tasks were retained, most of which were revised to better describe practice across Latin America

19 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Survey adaptation The survey went through typical rounds of clean up, revision, pilot testing, and final production Expect such studies to take more time than normal to complete Instructions to committee members in s and memos had to be adapted to Spanish

20 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Survey distribution 1,700 surveys were distributed among the six countries Committee members determined the number of surveys distributed to each country Each committee member served as distribution coordinator within their country

21 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Survey distribution Surveys were boxed and shipped to each country coordinator Coordinators were responsible to distribute surveys to professional colleagues in their country This step took several months, where it would typically take several weeks for a national study

22 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Results review 401 responses were analyzed The committee was reconvened to review study results It was critical to have some bilingual participants present to convey instructions and technical details

23 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Results review

24 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Results review

25 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Results review

26 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Results review

27 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Results review

28 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Results review Because they were uncertain at the outset whether a single examination could be specified, results were compared across countries The committee became satisfied that practice was similar enough across countries to justify specifying a single examination after finding no practical differences in task endorsement by country Developed specifications for an entry level exam. Assignments were given for a 360 item pool.

29 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Lessons learned Site coordination was highly successful in acquiring responses from target practitioners –Indirect survey distribution did add substantial time –It was necessary to frequently monitor the completion of assignments. –Language proved a minimal barrier given bilingual proficiencies of some committee members –Language differences between committee members who only spoke Spanish and technical staff who only spoke English also added some time to the process. –Telephone communications proved to be unreliable and difficult to coordinate. Cellular phone communication most useful. –All sites were not internet accessible, or did not have proper computer equipment.

30 Presented at the 2004 CLEAR Annual Conference September 30 – October 2 Kansas City, Missouri Test Construction Las Vegas, Dec.2003 Item writing assignments and training. A 360 item pool was generated. Test development workshop. Item selection and analysis Conducting a pretest. Establishing a cut score.
