WHAT: 15 Most Challenging Things In Healthcare Simulation & How to Conquer Them
- David Escobar, EMT, CHSOS: Director of Healthcare Simulation at Level 3 Healthcare
- H. Michael Young, MDiv BBS CHSE: Director of Healthcare Education Strategy and Design
- Steven Scott Atkinson, BA: Simulation Technology & Operations Specialist
7 of the 15 Topics Discussed Include:
- What’s The Technology Needed to Back-up a Video Storage Policy? Here the team will consider the challenges of maintaining crucial security while providing necessary access to students and faculty for remote learning needs.
- Equipment Needs Identification, What Are The Learning Objectives? All too often the wrong equipment is selected for the learning objectives involved. This causes misuse of expensive capital equipment and unnecessary staff time to setup, tear-down, and maintain. How do we solve this?
- What’s the Ideal Simulation Technology Specialist Background? Is IT more important than medical knowledge? What do Sim Techs need to know, where can you find them and train them up?
- Purchasing Dilemmas, How Do You Know What You Don’t Know? What key areas are important to really understand when making capital equipment purchases for your sim labs — and what resources exist to help you know what’s what?
- “On the Fly” vs. “Pre-Programmed” – What’s Better and Why? Is this a recipe for unknown outcomes and useless data? What is really at stake with how we deliver simulator activity in simulation?
- What is the Root Cause of a Failure, How Do We Improve Our Sim? Understanding root causes of common problems through analysis can help us to make changes for next time. Are “debrief the debriefer” meetings necessary for the Sim Tech staff?
- How do we Demonstrate Simulation’s Value Beyond Happy Learners? Why is data collection so important and what stories can it help our team tell our faculty educators and administrators about our value add?
