Upcoming JUMP Simulation Courses at IMSH 2019 & Beyond: Facilitation, VR, SPs, Evaluation & More!

More than 20 members of Jump Simulation, a part of OSF Innovation and a collaboration between OSF HealthCare and the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria (UICOMP), were chosen to make presentations at the 2019 International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), January 26 – 30. The annual conference is the largest gathering of simulation health care professionals in the world.

More than 2,500 hundred attendees can learn best practices from each other, find areas for collaboration and hear about the latest healthcare simulation specific products. There are well over 100 workshops and presentations over the course of three days. Ten of those presentations come from Jump Sim and UICOMP personnel.

Learn more about these presentations along with the numerous courses and resources available on the Jump and OSF Healthcare websites linked below!

About Jump Simulation and OSF Healthcare

Jump Simulation was created to improve outcomes and lower health care costs through innovative simulation training of medical professionals. We are part of OSF Innovation, an initiative that was created as a means to embrace change and take on the largest health care challenges. Jump Sim programs and objectives are key to improving the safety, effectiveness and efficiency of care for community members across the region. A collaboration between OSF HealthCare and University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria (UICOMP), Jump Sim advances the Missions of both organizations.

OSF HealthCare, an integrated health system owned and operated by The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, Peoria, Illinois, includes OSF Healthcare System consisting of 13 acute care facilities and two colleges of nursing. In the spirit of Christ and the example of Francis of Assisi, the Mission of OSF HealthCare is to serve persons with the greatest care and love in a community that celebrates the Gift of Life.

Upcoming Course Feb. 13 & 14th: Introduction to Simulation Facilitation

Upon completion of this course, participants will have the beginning skill set necessary to define objectives for a simulation-based learning activity, develop a simulation that will allow learners the opportunity to demonstrate observable behaviors related to identified objectives, utilize the GAP format in debriefing and describe their methodology for evaluation of their simulation-based learning program. The cost for this course is only $520, but space is extremely limited — so hurry and learn more to register here!


  • Demonstrate the use of feedback and debriefing of a teamwork simulation
  • List specific strategies to foster learning conversations and reflective practice.
  • Discuss the role of simulation in learning and performance improvement for professional learners
  • Formulate simulation scenarios based on learning objectives.
  • Discuss the role of feedback and debriefing in learning and performance improvement.

OSF Healthcare Courses at IMSH 2019:

Broselow Training Through Augmented Reality
Sunday, January 27 | 3:00 – 7:00 pm
Presenter: Kyle Formella

Mass Casualty Triage Training in VR: Mastering Disaster with Technology
Sunday, January 27 | 3:00 – 7:00 pm
Presenter: Dr. Matthew Bramlet
Description: Utilizing VR authoring software, a complete Mass Casualty Incident Triage Training experience (with assessment) was created from simple diagrams and movies taken on an iPhone.

Virtual Standardized Patient Cases in a High Value Care Curriculum: Pilot Testing for Correlation with Other Markers of Performance
Sunday, January 27 | 4:30 – 6:30 pm
Research Abstract
Presenter: Dr. William Bond
Description: In this pilot study, first-year residents were exposed to virtual standardized patient (VP) simulations to explore the feasibility of incorporating VP simulation into an existing curriculum focused on High Value Care (HVC). VP simulation allows for rapid, repeated presentation of multiple cases, standard avatar responses, and immediate formative feedback. Results, while not statistically significant, suggest that performance on VP simulation is positively correlated with performance on standardized participant (SP) simulations.

Interactive Intelligent Avatar-Based Simulation Case Development Process
Sunday, January 27 | 4:30 – 6:30 pm
Research Abstract
Presenter: Dr. Teresa Lynch
Description: Virtual standardized patient (VP) cases were developed by UICOM-P faculty using the USC Standard Patient avatar-based platform, in order to provide an additional assessment tool for first-year residents in a High Value Care (HVC) curriculum. The case authoring process required faculty to customize avatar response content, ensure the avatars responded appropriately to learner queries, and arrive at consensus on scoring and feedback items. Post-simulation analysis provided faculty with insights into learner test ordering, while learner feedback gave insight into areas for improvement for future case iterations.

Sunday, January 27 | 4:30 – 6:30 pm
Poster Abstract
Presenters: Dr. Lisa Barker

Author, Editor, Simulation Specialist
Sunday, January 28 | 3:00 – 4:30 pm
Presenters: Megan Springer, Chris Larkner
Description: We will be exploring the concept of utilizing simulation specialist to their maximum potential within a simulation center. Identifying different backgrounds that simulation specialist offer to a simulation center and how you can utilize their knowledge and experience but also identifying their limitations.

Central Venous Catheter Training: Standardization Across Specialties Pays Off
Presenter: Ruth Lane
Description: The aim of this panel discussion is to provide participants with a summary of our CVC simulation program and to provide a summary of an economic analysis of the current annual value of the associated cost avoidance. Our program provides standardize education and training across multiple disciplines and specialties. We aim to enhance human performance, reduce clinical errors, provide better outcomes and decrease avoidable healthcare costs.
