iSIM Courses – One of the Longest Running Debriefing & Facilitator Courses! July 29 – 31 & October 9 – 11 at WISER in Pittsburgh
This 3-day internationally renowned program, created in collaborative effort between WISER at the University of Pittsburgh (celebrating 25 years!) and the Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education at the University of Miami, is designed as an introduction to fundamental skills and abilities for delivering simulation-based healthcare education through a variety of techniques and technologies. The program emphasizes hands-on activities and active participation to maximize simulation-based instruction skill acquisition. Class group sizes are kept small to allow for maximum participation. The primary audience for this course are healthcare educators wishing to improve their skills as instructors in simulation education. Learn more here.
Jump Simulation Workshops in Debriefing, Patient Safety, and More! Various Dates
Jump Simulation was created to improve outcomes and lower health care costs through innovative simulation training of medical professionals. They 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. Courses in 2019 include “Introduction to Debriefing”, “Patient Safety Simulation – Saving Patients from Sepsis”, “Brain Death Simulation”, and more! Learn more here.
Fundamentals of Debriefing – May 29 – June 5 & July 29 – August 6 in Albuquerque, New Mexico
After completing four hours of online didactic modules and an online exam, healthcare simulation educators will gather to practice and evaluate their own debriefing methods through authentic practice in CNM’s Simulation Center for Advanced Training and Education. The result will be better effectiveness in conducting a debriefing session when teaching. Fundamentals of Debriefing has been approved for 8.75 contact hours of continuing nursing education. This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the New Mexico Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Take the opportunity to focus on all the technical details of what it takes specifically to operate and manage a simulation center. From the AV installations, to the design and engineering. Ensure that your simulation operations contains a standard base of education and skills with the Level 3 Healthcare Simulation Bootcamp. Our goal is to advance the role of the operation specialist & the techs in leadership, role discovery, and job skill requirements. The 16 hands-on classes will focus on array of skills and information that is uncommon in the typical “educational environment”. Learning objectives, among others, include: Explaining the importance of “briefing” learners prior to beginning a simulation experience, establishing and maintaining a safe learning environment during all stages of simulation based instruction, defining “debriefing” in the context of healthcare simulation instruction, and more!.
