Healthcare Simulation Webinars for December 2021

The webinar platform “LEARN” hosts a number of informative healthcare simulation webinars each month. These presentations are designed to cover a range of topics related to clinical simulation, including education, training, and practice. In December 2021, a number of presentations will be given that discuss topics related to medical simulation moulage, surgical simulation, remote learning, interprofessional skills, and more. By registering to watch one or all of these webinars, simulationists, and learners have the opportunity to listen and learn from various leaders across the clinical simulation industry.

Developing Obstetric Neonatal Emergency Simulations (ONE-Sim)

Presented by Dr. Atul Malhotra and Dr. Arunaz Kumar on Dec. 7th, 3PM PST, this one-hour, intermediate webinar describes the ONE-Sim workshops for Obstetric Neonatal Emergency Simulations in terms of how they were established and how they have evolved over time. Participants can obtain 1 Contact Hour of RN CE.

The ONE-Sim is an interprofessional SBE program for health professionals and learners involved in childbirth, where participants manage obstetric and neonatal emergency scenarios as a team. The focus of the program is to provide hands-on skills training to the participants in dealing with perinatal emergencies and management of these emergencies using a team-based learning approach. This is complemented by in-depth discussions (debrief) about teamwork and behavioral aspects of crisis resource management.

The COVID-19 pandemic led to the disruption of most interprofessional simulation workshops in our center, including the ONE-Sim workshops for medical, nursing, midwifery students, and health professional staff in Australia and overseas. ONE-Sim has devised online versions of the workshop for learners and staff. This has enabled the company to continue this vital simulation-based education during the pandemic, when strict lockdowns, physical distance requirements, and travel restrictions precluded the usual conduct of these workshops. In this webinar, presenters describe the ONE-Sim workshops – how they were established, and how they have evolved over time. Learning objectives include:

  • Learn the ONE-Sim interprofessional healthcare simulation training program.
  • Show how to incorporate lessons learned from the ONE-Sim program to participants’ own practice and education.
  • Improve understanding of tools available to achieve clinical outcome goals.

More About the Presenters: Atul Malhotra is a neonatal clinician-scientist with an interest in global health. He is an Associate Professor in the Department of Paediatrics, Monash University, Co-Chair of Monash Children’s Hospital Simulation, and Co-Founder of ONE Sim Education.

Arunaz Kumar is an academic obstetrician-gynecologist with an interest in interest in interprofessional and simulation-based education. She is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University, and co-founder of ONE-Sim Education.

Basics of Moulage from TraumaSIM & Upcoming Course Preview

Presented by Nola Pearce, BNg, GradDipNg (CritCareNurse), the founder and managing director of TraumaSIM, this one-hour, beginner webinar will be presented on Dec. 8th, 8AM PST. Nola will summarize some of the most important key points from her upcoming 3 CE “TraumaSIM’s Introduction to Moulage Course.” She will cover the why and how of moulage best practices, as well as showcase some hands-on demonstrations of key moulage principles. Anyone interested in using moulage to improve clinical simulation learning outcomes should attend. Learning objectives include:

  • Learn why moulage can improve learning and training outcomes in medical simulation.
  • Show basic moulage techniques to get started with realistic clinical makeup.
  • Preview key highlights from the upcoming 3 CE Moulage course.

More About the Presenter: Nola Pearce has achieved a Bachelor of Nursing, a Graduate Diploma in Critical Care Nursing, a Certificate of Hyperbaric Nursing plus held a Certificate IV in Training & Assessment that enabled delivery and assessment of nationally accredited courses. She founded TraumaSim in 2008 and acquired Military Moulage in 2019. After 16 years of nursing, Nola moved into First Aid training where she specialized in curriculum development and Advanced First Aid training for the maritime and process industries.

However, not confident that her students were really ready for the real-world response they were preparing for, Nola embarked on her mission to design and manufacture realistic training aids that would aid in improved training delivery and outcomes for both students and patients.

Disclosures: TraumaSim and Trauma Simulation Group are proprietary limited companies in Australia which include Trauma Simulation Group LLC (limited liability company) in the USA trading as Military Moulage. TraumaSim is a Ben Nye Dealer licensed to on-sell Ben Nye Moulage range. Nola Pearce owns and operates the TraumaSIM Group.

Community Health Simulation: Remote Learning Through Virtual Training

Presented by Natalie Nixon BBA, this one-hour, beginner webinar on Dec. 8th, 10AM PST, is dedicated to Community Health Simulation, learners will observe the Sentinel City v.5. This is a diverse, authentic, and immersive Community Health Simulation experience for community and population health.

Experience a guided product demonstration followed by a Q&A session to see firsthand how this cutting-edge technology is designed to help nursing students develop advanced observation techniques, cultivate critical thinking skills, and confidently make community health assessments from day one. Version 5 enhancements to be covered in this webinar include a new suburban neighborhood, enhanced demographics, additional diverse citizens and key informants, a narrated bus tour, and an interactive Assignment Catalog. Learning objectives include:

  • Understand how students can use a virtual environment to complete up to 46 community activities.
  • Review faculty integration and support tools – dashboard, faculty guide, and assignment catalog.
  • Discuss curriculum application for ADN, BSN, RN-BSN, and MSN.

More About the Presenter: Natalie Nixon originally from North of Chicago, has lived in Birmingham, AL for 30+ years. She started her career in higher education in 1990, when she was hired as the International Program Director for a Distance Learning school specializing in Computer Science.
