Through this course, learners will come to better understand the art of creating high-fidelity healthcare simulation wounds and injuries with this introductory moulage course workshop with a hands-on training moulage kit shipped right to your door. This mix of online instruction and in-person hands-on materials will show you how to safely apply bruises, shock and cyanosis, burns, open fractures, and lacerations safely to your Standardized (simulated) patients and/or manikins.
Moulage (French for casting or molding), is the art of applying mock injuries or medical cues for the purpose of training clinical professionals. Medically accurate moulage is vital to modern healthcare simulation, used to add realism and enhance any training scenario or simulation; quality moulage generates student focus, ‘buy in’, and evokes a realistic stress response getting the learners closer to the real world. Moulage should align with the appropriate mechanism of injury and student outcomes to be useful and purposeful rather than a distraction.
This course, fully developed by TraumaSIM and uniquely recorded for HealthySimulation.com, will take learners through planning your moulage to best fit your student’s needs. Every supply and tool you need to participate in this course is included in the Moulage kit, shipping anywhere in the United States (and available via additional shipping charge globally), so TraumaSIKM highly recommends anyone new to moulage also secure the kit in order to maximize their training outcomes. This course also has a strong focus on safety and using professional-grade products to keep staff and learners safe from injury or allergic reaction and their workplaces safe from litigation.
The highly experienced TraumaSim team (who now also oversee MilitaryMoualge.com) has been delivering moulage services and workshops to a variety of military, medical, and emergency response personnel around the world since 2008. In this introductory course, they discuss a range of moulage mediums to better understand the styles of moulage that can be utilized. In these three hours, TraumaSIM’s staff efficiently takes participants through moulage materials options, looking at the pros and cons of each type of product.
TraumaSIM also teaches learners step by step how to create a range of injuries such as bruises, shock and cyanosis, burns, open fractures, and lacerations to apply to their Standardized Patients (aka Simulated Patients) or simulated patient manikins. This course will whet a learner’s appetite as you enter the moulage world and provide them with the skills to provide quality professional moulage for your medical simulations. Overall learning objectives include:
- Show an understanding of how to safely plan moulage for a healthcare simulation educational or training experiences, including examples of safety considerations.
- Understand how simulated moulage makeup can be used in clinical simulation experiences to improve clinical patient outcomes. List common applications of simulation in healthcare.
- Create a realistic bruise using crème makeup on a human model or manikin, and a realistic open laceration using a wax-based moulage and simulated blood products
Meet the Course Director: 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.
Also undertaking studies and training in Moulage and Disaster Exercise Design training in the U.S, Nola drew on her medical background to bring realism to the art of casualty simulation and has successfully delivered over 20,000 casualty simulations for training scenarios around the world. Collaborating with Universities, Medical Colleges, and various other education and training establishments, Nola is passionate about her work and the solutions the business can provide for all first responders and emergency personnel around the world.
