Did you know that each year 7,000 to 9,000 people die due to an estimated 1.25 million annual medication errors in the United States alone? Annually costing an estimated $20B in the United States and $42B globally, medication errors should be near the top of every healthcare institution’s priorities list.
The opportunity for healthcare simulation to address medication errors is without question, providing a safe space to learn, practice and test with simulated medications, task trainers, patient simulators, pyxis medstation operation and team-based communication. But how many of us are utilizing clinical simulation to address this global problem? Many readers have cited difficulty recreating realistic clinical experiences, gaining administrative and peer faculty buy-in, lack of scenario templates and knowledge about the latest trends as the primary barriers to utilizing medical simulation to prevent medication errors. As such, HealthySimulation.com went to work to build a solution to help overcome these challenges and more!
Providing 5 RN Continuing Education Contact Hours via the California BRN (CEP#17566), this limited time course is perfect for clinical educators ready to deep dive into med admin safety training through clinical simulation. Course Instructor Dr. Kim Baily PhD, MSN, RN will be sharing her 10+ years of simulation education and management experience across 6 core modules to save you and your program time, energy and resources to meet these objectives:
Course Learning Objectives
- Identify the current sources and types of medication administration errors, as well as the options for reporting such errors as a means to improving practice.
- Describe how human simulation-based learning can be used to improve patient safety during the medication administration process by training staff and identifying potential system errors.
- Apply evidence-based simulation theory and practice to create scenarios that enhance medication administration safety.
Other clinical simulation champions have seen the course materials and suggest that this course would also be a great primer for those looking to better learn how to start to build a simulated learning program!
About the Instructor
Dr. Kim Baily, MSN, PhD, RN 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 simulation programs at El Camino College and Pasadena City College in Southern California. Dr. Baily is a member of both INACSL and SSIH.
She serves as a consultant for emerging simulation programs and has previously chaired Southern California Simulation Collaborative, which supports healthcare professionals working in simulation in both hospitals and academic institutions throughout Southern California. Dr. Baily has taught a variety of nursing and simulation-related courses in a variety of forums, such as on-site simulation debriefing workshops and online courses. Since retiring from full time teaching, she has written over 100 healthcare simulation educational articles for HealthySimulation.com.
Course Abstract & Bonus Vendor Breakdown
According to the National Institute of Health, 1.5 million people are harmed by medication errors every year in the United States with an estimated 8000 people dying from those errors and at an estimated cost of $3.5 billion. This course will explore the causes of medication errors and will outline current national standards of best practice for medication administration such as those issued by The Joint Commission and those included in the National Patient Safety Goals. Learners will have the opportunity to identify medication errors within their own home clinical or academic institutions and to identify how these are reported and responded to.
Following the standards of the International Nursing Association of Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) and lessons from Translational Science, simulation-based education will be introduced as a method for mitigating practice gaps in medication administration. Learners will apply these guidelines to create detailed simulation scenarios based on the nursing process and other current best practice guidelines.
Two detailed scenarios with supporting documents are offered as part of the course. The course consistently focuses on how simulation can identify practice gaps and improve patient safety. Emphasis is given to the role that simulation plays in risk management and patient safety systems within hospitals and academic settings rather being limited to a simple role as an educational strategy.
An additional bonus lesson by the guest speaker will provide a comprehensive breakdown of the various types of medical simulations products which train for medication administration safety, including simulated medication, simulated med carts, and simulated EHRs. Learners will gain valuable insights into the products and services which can best support their clinical simulation program’s med admin safety training.
