“How to Create a Safe, Effective Healthcare Simulation Learning Environment” by Shelli Ellis: How do we create a safe and effective clinical simulation learning environment? Learning is stressful and if the educator does not plan and prepare for a healthy clinical simulation learning environment, more learner stress can amount. As a result, learners who become increasingly stressed may block what educational information is presented to them. Thus, being able to supply a healthy learning environment is true to their benefit helps make healthcare simulation educators’ time more valuable and is to their benefit. Being able to gain experience acquiring difficult life-saving skills on simulators, rather than on humans, naturally extends learners a safe learning environment. This HealthySimulation.com article, written by Shelli Ellis DNP, RN, NE-BC, an NPD Specialist at Baylor Scott and White Medical Center-Temple, explains how educators can go about achieving this goal.

“More than a Job: The Ongoing Professionalization of Healthcare Simulation” by Jeanne Carey, RN, CHSE-A: Professionalization is often seen as a noble goal for emerging knowledge occupations. The professionalization process is generally a long one, with no one clear path forward. Some occupations journey this road for many years, navigating detours along the way. Healthcare simulation is a technique that creates a situation or environment to allow persons to experience a representation of a real healthcare event for the purpose of practice, learning, evaluation, testing, or to gain an understanding of systems or human actions. A simulationist is a person who is involved in the design, implementation, and/or delivery of healthcare simulation activities (Lioce et al., 2016). The following article takes a look at the ongoing process of defining healthcare simulation as a profession and simulationists as professionals. Read more.
“Significant Reduction in Malpractice Claims After Medical Simulation Training” by TIffani Chidume, DNP, RN, CCRN-K, CHSE, CHSOS: Healthcare simulation and the practice’s related benefits cannot be denied. The growing demands for clinical spaces for those in the healthcare discipline are evident in nursing programs and medical schools. Healthcare simulation reaches far beyond the use for learners and expands to credentialed personnel as a way to refresh, increase confidence, and validate essential skills of a particular discipline or medical specialty. This article will discuss the benefits of healthcare simulation for Ob-Gyns, and will explain how the use of clinical simulation can help reduce instances of medical malpractice and subsequent claims.

“Bringing Clinical Simulation & Active Learning Strategies into the Classroom During COVID-19” by Amy Curtis, RN, MSN, Ph.D., CHSE: The COVID-19 pandemic brought many changes to the world, including those necessary at educational institutions. For instance, many educators were forced to convert in-person learning to completely remote in a matter of days or weeks. Clinical simulation has been a mainstay in academia, even prior to the pandemic, and was ultimately thrust into the forefront when COVID-19 hit the United States. Faculty were then challenged to provide meaningful and innovative classroom activities to meet course outcomes. Further, many educational programs, especially healthcare-related programs that are traditionally hands-on, were particularly challenged. Read more.
