MedVision’s Leonardo: Hands-on Look at the World’s Newest Adult Patient Simulator

Presented by Simulation Technician Bradley Chinwing, BS, this one-hour, beginner webinar shares what sets MedVision’s Leonardo healthcare simulation manikin apart in the market. The presentation also includes information on how his ease of use, software, and technology makes simulationists’ lives easier. Chinwing provides a product overview and deep dive into the technology that makes Leonardo a new game-changer in the market. This includes a head-to-toe demonstration of the manikin that highlights his realism, versatility, software ease of use, servicing, and durability.

Learning objectives defined as part of this presentation include that attendees will understand the unique features that make Leonardo a realistic and versatile option for their training program. They will be able independently to evaluate what sets Leonardo apart in the market, including realistic height, weight, skin look and feel, and bony and muscular structure. Lastly, they will learn how Leonardo can add value to a clinical simulation program focused on improved outcomes.

Using Medical Simulation to Intentionally Probe Healthcare Systems: What’s It All About?

Presented by AnneMarie Monachino, DNP, RN, CPN, CHSE-A, NPD-BC, this one-hour, intermediate webinar explains how healthcare simulation can serve as a vehicle for the evaluation of system-based processes. This is because system-focused simulation, also referred to as process-oriented simulation, can be accomplished through simulation-based clinical systems testing (SbCST), and simulation-based hospital design testing (SbHDT).

This presentation discusses how and why simulationists should use system-focused simulations, explores the barriers and facilitators impacting teams interested in this format, and describes a reporting structure used by a simulation center that has achieved accreditation in systems integration by the Society of Simulation in Healthcare (SSH). In addition, participants are shown examples of systems-focused simulations and their findings and outcomes, as well as the impact on patients and healthcare providers.

Learning objectives include being able to define the intent of systems-focused simulations and describe the benefits and challenges to designing and integrating systems-focused simulations into a simulation program. Viewers will also learn to identify an outcome-reporting system strategy by which to share findings with stakeholders.

EU Simulation Resources From the SESAM Organization

Presented by Dr. Marc Lazarovici, MD, this one-hour, beginner webinar highlights SESAM 2021, the first fully virtual conference held by the Society for Simulation in Europe, SESAM. This event was designed to provide many opportunities to learn, virtually meet colleagues, and have fruitful discussions. This was made possible through the choice of an innovative digital platform, an impressive speaker lineup, and automatic translation to several languages. SESAM’s main goal was to bring the community together despite the pandemic, offering a platform to all those active in the healthcare simulation field.

This presentation’s learning objectives include helping viewers understand the goals and target audience for the upcoming SESAM 2021 virtual event. Lazarovici also shares the benefits and resources of the SESAM nonprofit organization. Lastly, this webinar provides a review of the state of simulation in the European Union.
