Mitigating Micro-Aggressive Attitude and Behavior in the Interprofessional Environment


This session will address common forms of microaggressions in the interprofessional learning environment using team-based simulation scenarios related to diversity, equity, inclusivity, professional equality, and true collaboration. Learner-centric debriefing skills will be presented to uncover subtle forms of verbal, behavioral, and attitudinal forms of microaggressions, many of which have been either ignored or tolerated in the past.


  1. Discuss ways that microaggressions occur in the interprofessional learning environment and targeted simulation-based approaches to handling them.
  2. Explore powerful questioning and learner-centered methods for use in debriefing to help participants frame their word and language choices to prevent microaggressions.
  3. Identify practical methods that participants can use to reference the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) Core Competencies as a guide to improving communication skills in the interprofessional learning environment.

Does My Personal Protective Equipment Really Work? A Simulation-Based Approach


The coronavirus pandemic has created a need for personal protective equipment (PPE) refresher training for healthcare workers. We utilize a nontoxic fluorescent solution during PPE training to simulate contact spread and contamination from aerosol-generating procedures. This novel technique highlights the importance of proper donning and doffing technique while providing visual evidence of any exposure.


  1. Demonstrate how to create a nontoxic fluorescent solution for PPE training.
  2. Utilize the simulated germ solution for setting up a formative training environment and summative testing for the donning and doffing of PPE.
  3. Discuss future simulation-based research opportunities and collaborations around PPE training and testing.

Can Simulation Be Used To Reduce Burnout? An Exploratory Workshop


Healthcare provider burnout is of concern regardless of profession, impacting patient safety, quality of care, and long-term workforce sustainability. Exploring ways that simulation might alleviate elements of burnout is a novel approach to this problem. Attendees will learn how to recognize burnout, identify contributors, and utilize group discussion to formulate strategies to reduce burnout and build resiliency using simulation.


  1. Identify at least two contributors to healthcare provider burnout and how they relate to patient safety and quality of patient care
  2. Describe three interventions to reduce burnout and build resiliency among healthcare providers
  3. Discuss the use of simulation as an intervention to address healthcare provider burnout for two case scenarios

Re-Design: Ensuring Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Your Simulation Scenarios


Simulation education can perpetuate stereotypes or racism in the interprofessional delivery of care, often overtly or inadvertently in scenarios. Without awareness and review of simulation scenarios, simulation educators may lose opportunities to address and role model a better strategies. We will explore the role of ensuring DEI presence in scenario development, debriefing, and communication training.


  1. Identify strategies for ensuring equity & inclusion in current simulation scenarios
  2. Practice debriefing for safety in conversations on diversity equity & inclusion (DEI) during team simulations
  3. Name techniques for training standardized actors in diversity and inclusion scenarios

Using Simulation to Safely Provide Care During a Pandemic


This presentation will describe how one organization used simulation from the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic to re-engineer how work is done on a day-to-day basis. Simulation played a pivotal role in serving as an essential resource for hospital wide system change to ensure the continued delivery of safe, high quality patient care. This overview explains the use of systems-focused simulations during all phases of the pandemic.


  1. Describe how simulation was used during a pandemic to impact patient safety and clinical care
  2. Discuss the critical role of the Center for Simulation team as a resource for hospital-wide system change
  3. Explain the difference between systems-focused simulation and traditional medical based simulation.

Create A Custom Mobile App for Your Center with No-code


Do you wish your center had its own branded mobile app? Wouldn't it be awesome if students could register for courses and complete evaluations on their phones? Don't we all wish we had an easier way to communicate program needs, track inventory or collect data on the go? This course will teach you how to build a custom mobile app to your exact specifications with little to no budget in less than 90 minutes without writing a single line of code.


  1. Design a simple relational database for their custom app using common spreadsheet tools such as Google Sheets and Microsoft Excel.
  2. Transform a spreadsheet into a highly customizable and fully functional mobile app without writing any code.
  3. Customize your mobile app to meet your business requirements and with company branding.
