Healthcare Simulation Webinars Focused on AudioVisual Recording Systems

Audiovisual systems utilization are valuable in healthcare simulation programs to incorporate best practices to benefit learners to achieve identified outcomes. presents a number of audiovisual presentations to help fulfill the “LEARN” platform mission to provide informative and relevant healthcare simulation webinars each month. The AV webinars include systems, best practices, methods, and techniques that can help educators and facilitators provide quality clinical simulations. Engaging in these healthcare simulation webinars will help learners gain insight into the many benefits of AV systems and practices into their programs or training exercises.

Setting Up Your Healthcare Simulation Center for Learner Success with CAE Healthcare (Scott Temple): From orientation to debrief, leverage the products, platforms and services in your sim center to provide the best possible outcomes for your learners. Hear from sim center education experts as they discuss the importance of proper planning and preparation to achieve successful execution and debriefing, not only for the clinical learner, but also the instructors within a healthcare simulation center. Learning objectives include:

  • Learn how to create a standardized orientation to the simulation center prior to the first day of simulation training.
  • Demonstrate using modeled physiology to drive scenarios and encourage the practice of human performance factors.
  • Explain the importance of capturing productivity and efficiency in the simulation control room.

CE: Should We Use Video in Debriefing Practices? A Qualitative Study (Dr. Cheryl M. Miller, EDD, MSN, NPD-BC, CHSE): Learn the results of a qualitative multiple case study with embedded units that through observation, participant interviews, and documentation review sought to explore and describe practices of video-assisted debriefing (VAD) technology use in neonatal resuscitation program (NRP) education. Nursing Professional Development Specialists should consider incorporating innovative video technology use into their debriefing practices for review and observation in their courses. Leaders of simulation centers can also affect improvement in the safe use of VAD technology at their centers by applying the recommendations from this study. Learning objectives include:

Sponsored Content:

  • Examine the benefits and pitfalls of the use of video assisted debriefing technology in simulation.
  • Examine learner and instructor perceptions of the use of video-assisted debriefing technology.
  • Apply study findings to own simulation practices.

AvEncounter: A Real-Life High-Fidelity Standardized Patient TeleSimulation Training Tool (Megan Weldon, CHSE): Avkin’s newest offering is the only option for high fidelity telesimulation for distance learning. Megan Weldon will walk you through how your students can sign into zoom and have a telesimulation experience with a Standardized Patient from the comfort of their own home or in a group setting at your institution. Long gone are the days of avatar-based learning, you can now have a live person in your clinical simulation experiences to add realism and buy-in from students with real-life simulated patients! Customers are raving about Avkin’s extensive library of quality simulations and top-notch SP pool. Learn more about how you can incorporate AnEncouter at your institution. Learning objectives include:

  • Outline Association of Simulated Patient Educator (ASEP) standards of best practice.
  • Define telesimulation and ways to optimize it for clinical education curriculums.
  • Outline key points of a well-constructed Standardized Patient simulation.

Designing Your Nursing Simulation Center for Current and Projected Needs (Anne Costello, MSN, RN, CHSE): As many nursing educational programs look to increase enrollment, the need for increased physical space for clinical skills and medical simulation training is often a major consideration. The program’s simulation director or coordinator are often the one approached with the question, “If we were to increase enrollment, what would you need?” While exciting, this ask can also be incredibly overwhelming to those new to simulation center design and planning. This webinar will provide an overview of considerations for those who are anticipating a renovation or build of a new nursing simulation center. Highlights will include recommended processes for conceptualizing a medical simulation center design to fit your program’s needs, who to include in your planning, questions to ask your architecture team, considerations for designing flexible and adaptable spaces, and lessons learned in our design and planning phase. Learning objectives include:

  • Discuss processes used to conceptualize simulation center design.
  • Identify at least two stakeholders needed to engage in simulation center design.
  • Articulate at least two examples of flexible spaces in simulation design.

CE: Using Recorded Video to Debrief Hospital-Based Medical Simulation Experiences (Lori Greer, MSN, RN, CHSE): While the research has not been conclusive on the superiority of debriefing with video, the presenter’s hospital-based simulation center has chosen to use this method after eliciting positive evaluations from participants and facilitators alike. Feedback has confirmed that the participants see their correct or incorrect actions in the medical simulation after watching the video recordings. Participants have even expressed surprise at how helpful it is to review the clinical simulation by video and gain an better perspective of their overall clinical performance. In this CE webinar, we will walk you through a part of one hospital-based simulation program’s current journey in establishing the use of video recording to improve clinical outcomes during the debriefing process. Presenter’s will then share “ups and downs” they have worked through in establishing a successful debriefing system through the use of video recorded healthcare simulation activities. Learning objectives include:

  • Discuss the implications of video recorded clinical simulations.
  • Evaluate the use of healthcare simulation recordings, contrasting differences in hospital versus academic setting.
  • Identify the essential components in the use of video recordings to improve clinical outcomes.

How to Save Costs and Space With Portable Simulation Recording Technology from Nordic Simulators (Ville Mäkelä, M.Sc.): The presentation shows how modern mobile simulation recording & debriefing systems for healthcare education purposes can help save precious space, provide more operative flexibility and create significant cost savings to simulation center operators. The focus of the presentation is on what simulation centers should take into account when evaluating and choosing mobile or hybrid recording systems for their facilities. Some exemplary technical solutions are also presented to the participants from Nordic Simulators. Learning objectives include:

Sponsored Content:

  • Learn about the possibilities of modern mobile simulation recording & debriefing systems.
  • Understanding the key features of mobile recording and debriefing systems.
  • Learning about 3 exemplary mobile recording systems for differing needs.
