Background

•Podcasts are increasingly being utilized in medical education as an independent learning tool.

•However, despite the proliferation of content a formalized method for assessing the quality and impact of each podcast series does not exist. 

Summary of Work

•Independent reviewers conducted keyword searches of iTunes Canada (anesthesia, anesthesiology, anesthetics)

•For each relevant search result metrics were recorded for further statistical analysis to find post-hoc correlations with the study-defined success measure and

podcast’s authorship

Review process

Frequency and duration

Topics and target audience

Supplemental information

•Descriptive statistics

•Univariate and Multivariate analysis were used to identify independent factors associated with podcast success

Summary of Results

Conclusion

•Benchmarking study

•A wide range of podcasts

•Relatively short half-life

•Our novel measure of success accounts for the productiveness of a podcast but without user reviews, no comments can be made regarding podcast quality

•We have identified factors associated with podcast success and peer review
