Different Approaches to the Management of Sim Programs

Course Overview:

As simulationists, we know that developing simulation-based educational programs require a holistic and multidisciplinary vision from its conception, also to be creative and innovative to affront nowadays challenges. In this session we will encourage participants to apply a comprehensive inter-professional view from clinical and non-clinical fields to develop and manage different programs determined from different needs.

There are many considerations that must be taken into account when delineating the paths to follow to achieve a curriculum oriented towards the best practices in healthcare. Many of these considerations are far from the clinical field and are related to areas of management, collaborative work, creativity and human resources, among others. This session will provide an overview of the development and management of simulation based training programs, at times where flexibility and adaptability are most needed.

Objectives:

  1. Identify the different needs that require the development of healthcare simulation training courses, considering contingency situations and nowadays context

Clinical teams and health care professionals have indicated value in Clinical Event Debriefing (CED), as a key quality improvement tool for (1) systems improvement to reduce harm from patient safety threats, (2) improvement in individual, professional, and team-based learning, and development, and (3) stress reduction and recovery from clinical events.  In this webinar, we will review and discuss the fundamentals of CED, the similarities and differences between debriefing simulated healthcare scenarios and clinical events, and a framework for conducting CED.  Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions on how to build and enhance CED programs during a Q&A session with an expert faculty panel.

 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1.     Define the key characteristics and stages of CED

2.     Identify at least two ways to apply CED skills in clinical settings.

3.     List at least two strategies to build and enhance a CED program and culture.

Name-Claim-Aim: An Innovative Paradigm for Crisis Resource Management

Overview

In this workshop, will demonstrate Name-Claim-Aim in a simulated scenario. Debrief of the case will include interactive group discussion about challenges and hurdles in organizing and working effectively as a team. Faculty will present a detailed description of the N-C-A tool and its application to team organization during a crisis. Participants will then apply N-C-A in two simulated cases involving a crisis.

Objectives:

  1. Identify obstacles to efficient teamwork in crisis situations
  2. Correlate the crisis resource management principles with the Name-Claim-Aim paradigm
  3. Use rapid cycle deliberate practice to apply Name/Claim/Aim during simulated crisis scenarios

Webinar Presented by the SOTS Section: What's the Objective? Understanding the CHSOS Role in Curriculum Development

Overview

Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialists are experts at making the simulation scenario come alive. But too frequently, the operations specialist are engaged late in the curriculum development process. This session will help the OS uncover the importance of comprehending the instructional design process, playing an active role in curriculum design, and the value they add to the simulation program and community. This interactive webinar will provide the OS with foundational concepts used in simulation education, provide an opportunity for dialogue, and allow attendees to create and modify a simulation curriculum with their creativity.

Objectives

  1. Identify the importance of comprehending the instructional design process
  2. Identify how four different simulation modalities can be incorporated into a curriculum
  3. Critique a simulation curriculum/case

Presenters:

  • Jared Kutzin, DNP, CHSOS, FSSH

Are You Ready to Publish? The Simulation Technology and Operations Resource Magazine (STORM) may be the right place for you. - Webinar Presented by STORM

Overview:

The Simulation Operations Specialist (SOS) represents the most common position and greatest number of employees among healthcare simulation centers.1 Moreover, innovations in healthcare simulation often reside with the SOS because creating new methods of simulation technology are inherent in the regular design of simulated healthcare environments2.  The SOS may often be the actual inventor.  If not, they actively provide the necessary support to develop, implement, and evaluate new healthcare simulation technologies.  Highlighting exemplar work is an essential part of career development within the field of healthcare simulation operations.  SOS’s should be empowered to pursue publication in various formats that best represent their unique expertise.  This webinar will assist those involved in healthcare simulation operations with an overview of STORM where the primary goal is to publish new technologies and best practice for simulation operations.

Objectives:

  • Describe a brief overview of the criteria and types of papers best suited for STORM
  • Review the submission guidelines and a demonstration for submitting a paper
  • Engage in an open discussion about publication readiness and the submission process

Presenter:

  • David Biffar, MS, CHSOS-A
