Helping to Keep our Providers Safe: How Simulation is Working on Strategies for Training and Providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Thursday, April 2, 2020

2pm EST


Join innovators in heathcare training and simulation as we share several tools to use with providers to help improve the effectiveness of PPE donning and doffing, innovations in producing PPE in the simulation lab, and other important topics as simulation responds to the Covid-19 healthcare crisis.

Learning Objectives

After this session the participant will:

  • Identify several PPE training resources readily available for provider training
  • List challenges encountered in preparing PPE training for providers in a disaster management environment
  • Describe options for creating emergency PPE supplies in the simulation lab

Utilizing Zoom for Remote Simulation Education

Tuesday, April 7, 2020

2pm EST

This session will show participants how to configure and run Zoom in a standard clinical healthcare simulation room. This will utilize cameras, microphones, and multi-screen sharing to allow the participants to view information from multiple sources and interact with the instructor in the simulation room, as well as with each other. This session will have a portion of time devoted to questions and answers to allow users to understand how this technology might be implemented at their organization.

Learning Objectives
After this session the participant will:

  • Outline the configuration options of Zoom in the healthcare simulation environment
  • Describe the strengths and limitations of this modality
  • Plan how this technology might be implemented at their organization

Register NOW
This webinar is free to the healthcare simulation community.

SSH SimSeries: SimOps: IMSH Prep for SOS Webinar

Tuesday, April 20, 2020

1pm EST


Sean Cavanaugh, CHSOS Melissa Lowther, CHSOS

Course Overview (450 char)

Designing and submitting a course for the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (or any SSH sponsored conference) can be a daunting task. This course will focus on streamlining and de- mystifying the course submission process for IMSH. Faculty will discuss how to construct meaningful learning objectives, as well as identify important, high yield topics for presentations. Faculty will also help presenters navigate the course submission portal with a hands-on demonstration.

Learning Obj #1 (250 char)

Discuss the best practices used to create learning objectives to form the foundation of a course proposal.

Learning Obj #2 (250 char)

Demonstrate the IMSH content submission system to gain familiarity with the platform, content requirements, and content review process.

Learning Obj #3 (250 char)

Identify potential course topics to meet the Simulation Operations community’s needs for education and training.

Detailed Description

The building blocks of a successful course (presentation, simulation, or learning activity) are the learning objectives. “Learning objectives are clearly written, specific statements of observable learner behavior or action that can be measured upon completion of an educational activity.”1 “Describing learning outcomes is an important education designing activity that determines education and instructional directions.”2 Faculty will explore strategies and tools for constructing strong learning objectives.

  2. Lee DY, Yang EB. A critical evaluation of the concept and writing of learning outcomes. Korean Med Educ Rev. 2016;18(3):125–131.

Utilizing a proprietary course submission portal can several present challenges, including basic navigation to and within the portal. Course faculty will utilize screen-sharing to conduct a live demonstration of the SSH Presenter Portal. This will include step by step instructions on filling all required fields. Faculty will pause for questions and discussion as needed.

Last, faculty will present a curated list of needed topics for future web based presentations. These topics have been identified by the Simulation Operations and Technology Section. Webinar attendees will also be engaged in a discussion of ideas for future presentations.

Accreditation Statement

In support of improving patient care, the Society for Simulation in Healthcare is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive a maximum of 1.0 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
