Shawn S. Albers, BSc, MSc and colleagues recently wrote an article covering how SimWars is gaining massive popularity with clinical teams in Ireland on the JEMS website. The article explicates greater detail about a recent competition and how the innovative competition has taken the country by storm since 2017 — already a big hit across [...]
The Michael S. Gordon Center for Simulation and Innovation in Medical Education (GCRME) is a designated Center of Excellence of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Established more than 45 years ago for the application of advanced technology to medical education for medical students, physicians, physician assistants, nurses, paramedic/firefighters and instructors, more than [...]
When designing a Medical Simulation Space, the number of pitfalls to avoid is unbelievable. From doors being too small for beds to be installed to the wrong type of projector being installed in the lecture hall and from forgetting about HVAC for the server room to underestimating storage needs — each mistake is extremely costly [...]
Every so often we take a closer look at the latest research in Nursing Simulation from the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL)’s leading journal: Clinical Simulation in Nursing. Topics include balancing a simulation center budget, individual vs. group debriefing comparisons, overcoming challenges in simulating mental health, innovations in simulated nursing, development [...]
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) has developed a licensure examination, the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), which is used by member board jurisdictions and most Canadian nursing regulatory bodies, to assist in making licensure decisions. In this article, Dr. Kim Baily, PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, previous Simulation Coordinator [...]
Inclusion of laboratory tests in clinical simulation scenarios adds significantly to the realism of simulation since lab results are typically available in clinical practice. As sepsis and septic shock with subsequent multi-organ failure are the leading causes of death in adult intensive care units (ICUs), most healthcare simulation programs should consider medical simulation scenarios that [...]
