Evidence Based Practice: Hybrid Simulation, Wearable Simulators, and SPs

Hybrid simulation integrates a combination of traditional and cutting-edge technology to cultivate the ultimate immersive experiences for simulation based learning. While pairing wearable simulators with live actors, also known as standardized patients, learners can simultaneously apply their cognitive, psychomotor and affective skills as if they were in clinical practice. Join us to hear the research based evidence to support the integration of this modality.

Getting Started with Building a Standardized Patient Program

Emerging trends in simulation have institutions across the world learning how to start a standardized patient program of their own. Many factors come into play when institutions want to begin adding in real people to their simulations. Hear how top universities how they have begun to include live people into simulation and how they got faculty buy-in to begin the process.

Easier Than You Think: Bringing Generative AI into Clinical Simulation

Join Nick Stoick and Read Blumberg as they provide a fast-paced, straightforward demonstration PCS simulation products that can deliver Generative AI to your learners. This will possibly be the most direct and time efficient webinar hosted by a vendor that you will attend in 2024. Look, here’s what they won’t be doing: reiterating the known value of simulation education, discussing learning theory, or restating the importance of curriculum design. Here’s what these two, no-nonsense, straight-shooting experienced simulation consultants will do: for only 30 minutes, actively demonstrate PCS’s product offering so that you walk away with a better, more complete understanding of Generative AI in PCS products, how they’re currently used, and where they might best fit into your center. And then, take your questions for 30 minutes. This might be the most valuable 30+ minutes you spend investigating one company’s simulation portfolio this quarter.

The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in simulation centers has marked a new era in healthcare education. Generative AI, a subset of AI, is particularly noteworthy for its ability to create realistic, dynamic, and interactive scenarios that closely mimic real-life clinical situations. This webinar will explore how PCS’s suite of products—Spark and SimVox—leverages generative AI to revolutionize simulation-based learning.

By attending this webinar, simulation center professionals will be equipped with the knowledge to harness the power of generative AI through PCS’s Spark and SimVox. These tools promise to enhance the fidelity of simulations, improve learner engagement, and ultimately, advance the quality of healthcare education.

Join us to discover how generative AI can transform your simulation center into a cutting-edge learning environment where every scenario is an opportunity for growth and innovation.
