Responsible Element: Exploration Medical Capability (ExMC)
Status: Open
Description

Initial State:
The way crewmembers are trained to manage medical needs during exploration missions will be different than the current paradigm of the ISS due to increased autonomy.  Prior research under ExMC Gap 3.01 identified Objective Structured Clinical Exams (OSCEs) and Just-In-Time training options as viable pathways for crew medical training needs.  This gap is designed to provide a pathway for further defining how to implement the information and needs into the integrated medical system for exploration.  It also provides a collaboration focus for work with the SHFH and BHP Elements on training and crew interface.

Approach:
Projects will be conducted to explore avenues that will:
    1. Define what training/skills/procedures are needed for exploration missions.
    2. Define optimal methods for both pre-flight initial training and inflight refresher training that will aid in skills retention and improve medical decision making.
    3. Define optimal methods for inflight procedures that will aid in skills retention and improve medical decision making.
    4. Develop refresher training guidance capability.
    5. Develop procedure guidance capability.
    6. Define how to integrate training and procedure capability into the medical system.

Target for Closure
A recommendation on the training of crew for medical decision making and medical skills to enable extended mission or autonomous operations.
