Recorded Webinar: Understanding Basic Physiology for Clinical Simulation

Dr. Kim Baily, MSN, PhD, RN, CNE, previous Simulation Coordinator for Los Angeles Harbor College and Director of Nursing for El Camino College, presented “Understanding Basic Physiology for Clinical Simulation”, during a Webinar event yesterday — which is now available for those who missed it! Are you a simulation technician wondering why the body works the way it does — especially during medical simulation? This webinar introduces the basic concepts of physiology and is designed for simulation technologists with little or no medical background.

The human body may be viewed as a system with constantly changing inputs and outputs. When existing systems fail to maintain body functions within normal limits, clinical signs and symptoms appear and the patient may become ill.  Healthcare professionals (HCPs) are trained to recognize, interpret and respond to these changes in a way that helps bring the system back into balance.

Simulation technologists manipulate the simulation environment to mimic clinical situations. In so doing, sim techs provide an opportunity for HCPs to practice and improve their clinical skills in a supportive and safe learning environment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the concepts of homeostasis, wellness and pathology.
  2. List the main physiological systems of the body.
  3. Describe the major components of the cardiovascular system.

About the Presenter: Dr. Kim Baily, MSN, PhD, RN, CNE has had a passion for healthcare simulation since she pulled her first sim man out of the closet and into the light in 2002. She has been a full-time educator and director of nursing and was responsible for building and implementing two nursing simulation programs at El Camino College and Pasadena City College in Southern California.

Dr. Baily is a member of both INACSL and SSH. She serves as a consultant for emerging clinical simulation programs and has previously chaired Southern California Simulation Collaborative, which supports healthcare professionals working in healthcare simulation in both hospitals and academic institutions throughout Southern California.

Dr. Baily has taught a variety of nursing and medical simulation-related courses in a variety of forums, such as on-site simulation in healthcare debriefing workshops and online courses. Since retiring from full time teaching, she has written over 100 healthcare simulation educational articles for while traveling around the country via her RV out of California.
