INACSL Nursing Simulation Online CNE Sessions Are Accessible Through August 31st!
Though the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning, or INACSL, has completed its annual event which was moved to a virtual event in 2020 due to COVID-19, all of the nursing simulation conference sessions are available on demand until August 31, for a total of 30+ CNE Credits! In addition, until then, the group is hosting multiple live events per week, including Q&A sessions with speakers and exhibitors as well as Twitter watch parties. Let’s take a closer look at some of the content that is immediately available now before Fall Nursing School semesters start!
The INACSL Conference is a leading forum for simulation aficionados, researchers, and vendors providing the ideal environment to gain and disseminate current, state-of-the-art knowledge in the areas of skills/simulation operations and applications in an evidenced-based venue. Healthcare professionals will have the opportunity to network with colleagues and exhibitors, discuss best practices as relates to competencies, safety and quality performance indicators, and advance the science of simulation.
There is still a month to go for healthcare simulation champions to engage with exhibitors, participants and speakers from the INACSL 2020 Virtual Conference. With these sessions you can learn about key medical simulation products to help educate your students in clinical practice during exhibitor Q&A sessions. Select exhibitors are hosting live video chats to answer your questions about their products through the end of the month — all of which can be seen on the INACSL website calendar here.
You can also view an #INACSL20 session with the input of your simulation educator community during one of their famous “Watch Parties”. Simply log in to the conference website and press “play” on the video recording. Then, head over to Twitter and use the #INACSL20 hashtag to share your insights, engage with other participants & stay tuned for a prize giveaway! Finally, and best of all — get your questions answered in speaker Q&A sessions! But hurry, these sessions have limited space available, so you must submit a question online for the chance to obtain an exclusive invitation. Some of the recorded sessions immediately available include:
- “I felt the connection”: A qualitative exploration of standardized patients’ experiences in a delivering bad news scenario (Gibbs et al.)
- Addressing unique safety concerns of patients with autism spectrum disorder through simulation (Thomas et al.)
- Alternating simulation for traditional clinical: Perioperative and perinatal experiences (Parvis et al.)
- Tips for using virtual gaming simulations in nursing education (Verkurl et al.)
- Virtual reality to address medical emergencies in the primary care setting (Livsey et al.)
- Implementation of medication administration and documentation on a shoestring budget (Strawn et al.)
- Using simulation for skill building in teams: Modified Use of Simulation in Teams for Students In Training (MUST-SIT) Together©: An interprofessional education model (Suchak et al.)
- When bullying occurs in the workplace patient-centered care and safety are impacted (Schoville et al.)
- And many more…!

HealthySimulation.com contributor Dr. Kim Baily PhD, RN, CNE participated in the event providing robust coverage about these key topics:
- INACSL 2020 Day 1 Session Recap: RRT Algorithm Development Through Simulation & Context Based Learning: Here she recaps “The Development of Pediatric Rapid Response Algorithms Through Simulation: A Formula for Success” by D. Bracken, and M. Burch, B. Hall from the Intermountain Healthcare (IMH) Simulation Consortium in Utah which serves 24 rural and urban locations, as well as “Context Based Learning: Flipping the Classroom to the Simulation Lab by Wagner, R. and Catalano, L. from the University of Cincinnati.”
- INASCL Virtual Conference Day 2 Session Recap: High Stakes Evaluation and In Situ Simulation: Dr. Baily notes sessions on RRT Algorithm Development Through Simulation & Context Based Learning. Here today, she covers sessions from day 2 of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning on topics of evaluating high stakes medical surgical practicums and using healthcare simulation for optimizing nursing responses to in-hospital cardiac arrest events.
- INACSL Virtual Nursing Simulation Conference Plenary Recaps: Closing the Gap & SP Patient Centered Care: Dr. Baily covers two of the major plenary sessions including “Simulation As Translational Science: Targeting Educational And Practice Gap” and “That’s Not What Real Patients’ Value: Patient-Centered Learning In Clinical Simulation with Standardized Patients”.
- INACSL Hayden Vanguard Lectureship: 30 Minutes of Weekly Simulation in Every Hospital Around the World: Completing her coverage of the 2020 International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) Virtual Conference, here she recaps the CAE Healthcare funded the Hayden Vanguard Lectureship entitled “Team Engagement to Improve Outcomes – Global Network for Simulation in Healthcare (GNSH) 30 Minute Initiative”, presented by Dr. Carol Durham from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Dr. Pamela Jeffries from The George Washington University School of Nursing.
