Healthcare Simulation Webinars for January 2022
The HealthySimulation.com 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 January 2022, a number of presentations will be given that discuss topics related to clinical simulation standards, management tools, digital solutions, extended reality uses, 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.
Introducing INACSL’s New Simulation Standard: Professional Development (1 Contact Hour of RN CE)
Presented by Dr. Beth Hallmark RN, Ph.D., CHSE-A, ANEF, and INACSL colleagues, the one-hour, beginner webinar titled “Introducing INACSL’s New Simulation Standard: Professional Development” will be presented on Jan. 10 at 12 PM PST. In August of 2021, the new and updated Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice (formerly known as the International Nursing Association of Clinical and Simulation Learning standards) were published.
Included in this publication was a new standard: Professional Development. This webinar will describe the evidence behind the new standard, review the criteria and discuss how the simulationist can meet these described criteria. In addition, there will be a review of the changes made to the previously published standards and the additional new standards. Learning objectives include:
- Review the development of the New Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice Professional Development.
- Describe the criteria and guidelines for the new Healthcare Simulation Standards.
- Describe how the simulationists can operationalize the new standard.
Beyond Psychomotor Skills in the Sim Lab: How Do We Foster Clinical Judgement? (1 Contact Hour of RN CE)
Presented by Nicola Contreras DNP, RN, CHSE, the one-hour, intermediate webinar “Beyond Psychomotor Skills in the Sim Lab: How Do We Foster Clinical Judgement?” will be presented on Jan. 12 at 9 AM PST. Healthcare simulation-based education has demonstrated the ability to foster clinical judgment and bridge the knowledge practice gap for those entering clinical practice (Jang & Park, 2021). Using the INACSL Simulation Design and Facilitation Standards and Tanner’s Clinical Judgement Model (CJM) it is possible to redesign psychomotor skills laboratory activities.
Adopting a learner-centered approach to facilitating carefully designed case-based learning experiences in this setting creates opportunities for learners to notice, interpret, and respond to client cues. This asks learners to reflect in action as they consider what they have noticed, interpreted, and plan to do for the client. Debriefing and reflection are incorporated into each session and ask learners to consider the how and the why behind the actions/skills implemented and possible alternative outcomes or solutions. Learning objectives include:
- Identify the benefits of fostering clinical judgment in the psychomotor skills laboratory setting for nursing students.
- Demonstrate how Tanner’s Clinical Judgement Model can be used to guide the design of activities in the skills laboratory setting.
- Describe the process for facilitating and promoting reflection in action and on the action in the psychomotor skills laboratory setting.
Presented by Matthew Wittman, BS, the one-hour, beginner webinar “What’s New with Clinical Sim Management Tool CAE LearningSpace” will be held on Jan. 12 at 11 AM PST. Get a sneak peek of the LearningSpace updates that will be showcased at IMSH 2022 with Matthew Whitman, CAE LearningSpace product manager. CAE LearningSpace offers end-to-end healthcare simulation management for in-person and remote training programs. As an educational program evolves, CAE LearningSpace provides clients with scalability on one platform that can grow from a one-room simulation center to interconnected, multiple centers or virtual training with full audiovisual, scheduling management, and assessment features. Learning objectives include:
- Learn about the latest updates to CAE LearningSpace.
- Understand how CAE LearningSpace can be uniquely outfitted to your simulation center.
- Identify which CAE LearningSpace tier is right for you.
Extended Reality in Brain Surgery: Addressing Current Problems with Innovative XR Technologies (1 Contact Hour of RN CE)
Presented by Robert G. Louis MD, FAANS, the one-hour, intermediate webinar “Extended Reality in Brain Surgery: Addressing Current Problems with Innovative XR Technologies” will take place on Jan. 13 at 9:45 AM PST. The importance of medical imaging cannot be understated. It plays an important role not only as a diagnostic tool but also as a therapeutic and interventional aid.
Advances in imaging and medical visualization systems, particularly in the Extended Reality (XR, includes Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality) space, have also revolutionized physician-patient communication as well as medical education and resident training. During this webinar, Dr. Louis presents current problems with traditional imaging systems and describes how advanced medical visualization systems can solve them. Learning objectives include:
- To illustrate how XR can be used across the surgical treatment continuum from patient education, surgical planning, and intraoperative visualization.
- To demonstrate the proven value proposition of Extended Reality in helping deliver better patient care and improved healthcare training.
- To discuss current problems with traditional imaging systems and how Extended Reality can solve them.
Presented by Amar Patel, DHSc, MS, NRP, CHSE, FSSH, Kathy Kennedy MSN, RN, Michelle Kearns, MSEd, PMP, CHSE, and Rob Paquin RN, MSc, the one-hour, beginner webinar “Discover Digital Nursing Learning Solutions from B.C. Institute of Technology and CAE Healthcare” will be presented on Jan. 13 at 11 AM PST. Participants will learn about the British Columbia Institute of Technology and CAE Healthcare’s digital clinical learning solutions for nurse education and training.
Presenters will talk about an innovative partnership between the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) and CAE to create a wide range of digital learning solutions for many levels of nursing students. Each course features a virtual simulation targeting specific medical assessments and treatments, including gastrointestinal bleeds, cerebral vascular accidents, sepsis, postpartum complications, COVID-specific patients, and more. Each course is available on-demand, encouraging learning at all paces.
