2014 WORKSHOP 1
WORKSHOP TITLE:
The Nuts and Bolts of Patient Simulators

Overall Description:
This workshop will instruct learners in the overall aspects of simulation training and the essential operational knowledge of the Simulaids family of simulators. Technical aspects of the course will include set-up, operation and maintenance of the hardware and software systems of the PDA Stat and SMART Stat products.

Detailed Topics:

  • Introduction to Healthcare Simulation: An overview of the training as well as an overall perspective on simulation training.

  • System Overview — Hardware: this section of the course will provide learners with a foundational understanding of the hardware systems that operate the mannequins.

  • Basic Operations — Hardware: Familiarization with various aspects of mannequin operation including vital signs and physiological function manipulation, monitoring, defibrillation and IV fluids.

  • System Overview — Software: Familiarization with the installation and scenario editing features of the Simulaids software.

  • Basic Operations — Software: Learners will walk through all phases of using the Simulaids software package. They will write their own basic scenarios, load them into their handheld devices, enroll students, link students to scenarios, perform training and download results back to a PC.

  • Maintenance and Troubleshooting: Basic preventative maintenance and troubleshooting is reviewed.

Schedule:
Sessions will run from 9:00am to 4:30pm with lunch provided

Benefits:

  • Increase your competence and confidence levels quickly

  • Achieve the full potential of your mannequin

  • Improve student satisfaction

Who Should Attend:
Designed for the new user of Simulaids products, intermediate level Simulaids users and prospective users who want a greater understanding of the full range of the simulator capabilities.

 

2014 WORKSHOP 2

WORKSHOP TITLE:
Foundations of Simulation Science

Overall Description:
This workshop instructs learners in advanced concepts of simulation performance and measurement. Advanced simulation can be a complex endeavor with many moving parts. Achieving efficient flow and learning results requires careful consideration of many details and advanced planning. This session will prepare learners to direct and orchestrate successful simulation experiences.

Detailed Topics:

  • The Four Steps of Simulation: Review of phases of training exercise performance including- pre-production, briefing, activity and debriefing considerations.

  • The Art and Science of Debriefing: “You get what you measure” applies to simulation and the process of quality improvement. Structured debriefing is the key to turning practice into learning. Learners will look at the tools and processes involved in efficient debriefing. The use of video for quantitative debriefing will be demonstrated.

  • Teamwork Principles: Communication and coordination are at the heart of teamwork in healthcare in simulation. We will review the principles and practice essentials team skills.

  • Tour of the Simulaids R&D Lab and Manufacturing Facilities: See how mannequins are made starting from initial concept in the lab to molding and finally electronics assembly. See where the mannequins used on the popular TV show Mythbusters are born.

Schedule:
Sessions will run from 9:00am to 4:30pm with lunch provided

Benefits:

  • Reduce setup and administrative time

  • Improve the coordination of your exercises

  • Increase the learning effectiveness of your scenarios

Who should attend:
This workshop is for both new and intermediate level instructors who want to be able to run their scenarios more smoothly and efficiently. This course is ideal for users of any brand of simulator.
