STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation

Join us for a live tour of STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital / Harvard Medical School in Boston where we’ll explore our bustling center, step outside of this world and into our NASA simulator, and meet the all-star team behind the center’s success!

Facebook Live, 4:00 – 4:30 PM EST: Operational Infrastructure: Practical considerations that will enhance the likelihood of creating and sustaining a successful simulation center.

Speaker: Charles Pozner, MD
Executive Director

Neil and Elise Wallace STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation

Your CMO and CEO ask you to lead the creation of a healthcare simulation center for your 500-bed academic medical center. They are essentially clueless about what it takes to build, equip, and operate a simulation center. You have been eager to do this for years and have already performed a needs assessment in anticipation of this day. You know the layout and equipment that will meet the needs of your institution. The CEO and the CMO inform you that they are providing space and remodeling costs in the “old ED” and that you will have $1.5 mil. to equip the center. As they walk toward the door, your emerge from your elation, and stop them to ask, “what will our annual budget be to operate the center?”

Join us for a discussion about this, and more.

Principles of Ethics for Healthcare Simulationists: Join us to Discuss a Work in Progress!

Speaker: Christine Park, MD
Professor of Anesthesiology and Medical Education
Director, Graham Clinical Performance Center
University of Illinois at Chicago
Immediate Past President, Society for Simulation in Healthcare

Healthcare simulation has evolved from a tool to what is now a full-fledged professional practice. One of the critical milestones in the maturation of a profession is the development of a Code of Ethics. In January 2018, healthcare simulationist delegates from around the globe, representing multiple modalities, simulation societies, industry colleagues, and cultures gathered at a Summit with the aspirational goal of creating a unifying Code of Ethics for Healthcare Simulationists. In this session, we will discuss the work to date of the group, update you on the Code's current status and content, and seek your opinions and input."

Twitter Journal Chat: 5:00-6:00 PM EST

Facilitator: Ankeet Udani, MD, MSEd

Performance Assessment: Documenting the Value of Simulation Facilitated Programs

Speaker: Pamela Andreatta, Professor, Human Performance Research in Medicine, Surgery, and Health Professions, University of Central Florida

The cornerstone of any educational program evaluation is the measured impact of the program on associated performance outcomes. The science of performance assessment is complex; understanding the basics will help you select optimal assessment resources for your program and begin capturing relevant data that demonstrates value.  This discussion reviews how performance assessment optimally documents the impact of simulation programs on practitioner development, patient outcomes, quality, safety initiatives, cost of care, and organizational effectiveness in the provision of health services.
