A Single Exploratory Case Study: Discovering Preceptor Knowledge Transfer Techniques in an Ambulatory Surgery Center

This qualitative exploratory case study investigated preceptor’s successful training strategies in their pursuit of transferring knowledge to their Surgical Technologist (ST) students in basic skills, problem solving and critical thinking skills in an ambulatory surgery center. Using semi-structured and open-ended interview methodology, the study probed various assessment strategies utilized by preceptors. The study explored their preferred teaching style, secondary teaching methods, attributes and skills that were used while working in the field. The findings revealed that training methods used in different ambulatory settings (such as hospital ambulatory departments, or acute care settings), do not resonate as appropriate teaching models for this ambulatory surgery center setting. Study findings suggested that there was a gap in knowledge pertaining to program development in the ambulatory surgery center setting. Program enhancements were strongly recommended by the preceptor teaching staff which yield tremendous insight and benefit for ongoing program development.
