Ouch! An Introduction on How to Create Realistic Trauma Moulage (Nola Pearce, BSN): This 1-hour webinar will acquaint you with TraumaSim’s Introduction to Moulage Course. Lance and Nola will discuss the value and purpose of Moulage and introduce you to the format and outcomes of the course. Nola will demonstrate how easily, quickly and safely moulage can be applied that will change the learning experience for your students. Nola looks forward to answering any and all questions regarding the construction of moulage in medical simulation training programs. As well, take a peek inside the TraumaSim Introduction to Moulage Course, hosted on, and see how realistic moulage can be achieved in a matter of minutes. Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand what moulage is and know how to easily apply the tool to medical simulation experiences.
  2. Review the value and purpose of Moulage in healthcare simulation.
  3. Experience the core techniques for constructing moulage to match core clinical learning objectives.

How Moulage Sciences & Training Can Add Realism to Your Medical Simulation Program (Stephanie Acosta, BA): Bridging the gap of clinically simulated patient presentations is moulage, the art of applying mock injuries for the purpose of simulating real-world experience for emergency medical training. Florida-based Moulage Sciences and Training (MST) provides high fidelity moulage using hypoallergenic materials that are durable, long lasting, and reusable. In use since for centuries, moulage ranges in complexity from simple wax models to hyper-realistic prostheses with pumping blood and simulated odors. MST training techniques can teach anyone how to apply moulage that will look realistic and stay in place for long lasting training scenarios. Join this presentation to learn about products, techniques, and effects currently used in the special effects industry and in support of training exercises for medical, public safety and military organizations.  Learning Objectives:

  3. Learn how to safely apply and remove a silicone prosthetic for maximum efficiency.

How to Start out with Basics of Healthcare Simulation Moulage (Erin Carn Bennett): Moulage applied for healthcare simulation is a skill that can easily be taught or learned to increase fidelity for the learners. Extravagant art and talent are not always required or necessary to be impactful. Moulage is the process of creating lifelike injuries and symptoms for clinical simulation scenarios to enhance the realism of the case. Moulage serves as a tool to enhance the authenticity and educational impact of healthcare simulation. This article by Erin Carn-Bennett, MSN, RN, is aimed for healthcare simulation staff at the start of their moulage journey around the basic skills for moulage, considerations, and justification for the use of moulage.

How to Maximize Low-Fidelity Manikins Use in Healthcare Simulation (Erin Carn BennettSettings): Low-fidelity manikin healthcare simulation is a regular part of clinical simulation programs. For some healthcare simulationists, frequent access to a high-fidelity manikin would be a luxury. For others, low-fidelity manikin simulation is used for various reasons, such as ease, time restrictions, or lack of clinical simulation technician support. This article by Erin Carn-Bennett will examine ideas and possibilities to consider when the choice is made to maximise low-fidelity manikin clinical simulation.

Casualties Union Celebrates 80 Years of Casualty Simulation ( Writing Team): Casualties Union is celebrating the 80th anniversary of the organization’s founding in 1942.  The organization’s casualty simulation and moulage techniques have kept up with the times with the help of 300 volunteers. These volunteers across the United Kingdom have devoted their time to providing realistic healthcare simulations of casualties. This article is not just an acknowledgment of how far Casualties Union has come, but also a celebration of the founding years and past. According to the organization, without Eric Claxton’s thoughts and the determination of the first 120 inaugural members, there may have been many hundreds of emergency response teams, first aiders, and companies who would have missed out on realistic emergency training.

3D Printing Steps to Expand Healthcare Simulation (Eric Ayers): 3D Printing offers solutions to many issues identified by healthcare simulation professionals. However, the idea and plan of utilization behind 3D printing seems to be relatively new within the world of medical simulation. Some healthcare teams have capitalized on the benefits of 3D printing. Like most up and coming technology, there are still some gaps to understand where 3D Printer technology can fit within the healthcare simulation world. This article by Eric Ayers will offer some insights into steps for healthcare simulation professionals to expand their simulations through the utilization of 3D printing.

Developing a Healthcare Simulation for the Novice Simulation Educator (Tina Hayes, MSN, RN, RNC-OB) Healthcare simulation is a dynamic and effective method of experiential learning that can be incorporated into any clinical education program. There is no better teacher than experience and no safer way to gain healthcare experience than through the use of clinical simulation. However, there is a learning curve involved for the clinical educator who is new to or unfamiliar with healthcare simulation and the experience can be intimidating. This article will break down the process and walk the novice educator through the basic design and development of an effective clinical simulation experience.
