CAE Clinical Digital Learning Solutions Expand Educational Capabilities

Across healthcare simulation, the ability to consistently develop and expand clinical learning solutions has become essential to meet the evolving educational landscape — including remote, digital, virtual, and personalized learning. Medical training partner, CAE Healthcare, believes in creating a learning environment that is individualized and leverages interactive and adaptive simulations to provide students with the ability to learn anywhere, at any time. This content, along with CAE’s digital learning platform and accompanying courses, means students can work at their own pace while achieving an impactful and personalized level of learning. CAE has also partnered with institutions, including the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), to expand their educational offerings.

DEI Call to Action: The Importance of Racial Equity Across Simulation Leadership

As many institutions and facilities have begun to identify the immense value of implementing healthcare simulation into their curricula, a new challenge has become equally emphasizing the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Rooted in the desire to portray life-like patient scenarios for medical professionals and learners to gain the necessary experience, healthcare simulations must seem realistic. Just as hospitals and clinics take in patients of all backgrounds and demographics, medical simulation scenarios and experiences must portray diverse patients so learners understand how best to provide individualized care. This HealthySimulation.com article shares recent research and two upcoming events that are designed to stress a call for action for increased healthcare simulation DEI.

Recap: Champions of Simulation Virtual CE/CME Symposium 2022 – Recordings Now Available

Simchamps, HealthySimulation.com is proud to announce that last the first-ever Champions of Simulation Virtual CE/CME Symposium was a success! As the world’s leading healthcare simulation resource website, we are extremely grateful to all those who took the time to present, and those who joined us as participants. Together, the insight that was shared through this incredible event brought together so many of the industry’s movers-and-shakers, helping us advance together toward a future that prioritizes clinical simulation in a way like never before. This HealthySimualtion.com article shares some of the highlights from the event. All recordings are currently available for viewing upon purchased registration.

Should Clinical Learners Wear Uniforms During Healthcare Simulation Experiences?

In the clinical setting, healthcare professionals frequently wear uniforms that identify the healthcare profession the wearer belongs to and their boundaries of practice e.g. nursing department scrubs may be one color and physical therapy department scrubs may be another. Uniforms may differ in style as well as color. Some facilities do not have any uniform requirements other than regulations related to items such as covered shoes and clean uniforms. Union contracts may govern uniform requirements. Institutions may have to pay for staff uniforms if they make them mandatory. This HealthySimulation.com article discusses the debate about the benefits of uniforms.

Role-Play: A Healthcare Simulation Strategy for Teaching Problem-Solving, Communication, & Self-Awareness

The word “pretend” does NOT have to be perceived negatively across healthcare simulation. Asking learners to make-believe or act a part can lead to the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. This practice, otherwise known as role-playing, can ultimately help produce desired outcomes in three major learning domains: affective, cognitive, and behavioral. Thus, role-play has become a healthcare simulation strategy that increases learner engagement and fosters knowledge retention. In this HealthySimulation.com article, author Jeanne Carey explains how role-play can be used as a type of clinical simulation methodology, and shares five reasons medical simulation educators and learners should add role-play to their healthcare simulation repertoire.

TacMed Elevates ‘Stop the Bleed’ Response with Medical Simulation and Treatment Solutions

In emergency medical situations, every minute counts. When the emergency is heavy bleeding, being prepared saves lives. May is National STOP THE BLEED month, highlighting the importance of knowing how to effectively stop serious bleeding. Tactical Medical Solutions, Inc. is an ardent supporter of STOP THE BLEED Month and the American College of Surgeons (ACS) STOP THE BLEED program. Administered by the ACS Committee on Trauma (ACS COT), the program encourages learners to acquire the basic skills necessary to control bleeding from accidents and injuries.

Freely Available Virtual Simulation Educator’s Toolkit

As the world’s premier Healthcare Simulation resource website, HealthySimulation.com is dedicated to bringing clinical simulation educators tools that they can use to improve their quality of instruction. One such tool, “Virtual Simulation: An Educator’s Toolkit,” was written by Margaret Verkuyl, Karyn Taplay, Lynda Atack, Mélanie Boulet, Nicole Dubois, Sandra Goldsworthy, Theresa Merwin, Timothy Willett, and Treva Job. In this article, HealthySimulation.com interviews author Margaret Verkuyl about why this resource was created, and how medical simulation educators can use the book to increase academic instruction across the field.

A Healthcare Simulation Perspective: Tanner’s Clinical Judgement Model

Strong clinical judgment is an incredibly important characteristic across healthcare simulation, as both educators and learners depend on the accumulation of knowledge and skills over time. To make certain that sound clinical judgment is reached, Christine A. Tanner, Ph.D., RN, developed a model of clinical judgment that was published in her 2006 article “Thinking like a Nurse: A Research-Based Model of Clinical Judgment.” For this article, she reviewed almost 200 articles on clinical judgment and then presented an alternative model (the “Tanner Model”) of clinical judgment based on these studies. This HealthySimulation.com article shares how this model relates to healthcare simulation and provides examples of clinical simulation research demonstrating this notion.

Leveling Up on Prelicensure Learners Telehealth Healthcare Simulations

Clinical simulation education and training have proven to greatly increase patient safety across medical treatment facilities. For this to happen, prelicensure baccalaureate nursing learners must receive skills training and competency check-offs to ensure adequate care of patients as they continue through the curricula. To certify that these skills are met, nursing learners are typically evaluated based on the National League of Nursing (NLN) and/or QSEN competencies at clinical sites. Much of their learning is reinforced through healthcare simulation-based experiences (SBEs), nursing simulation-based experiences may focus on a variety of topics and actions such as interventions, skills, and therapeutic communication.
