Free Webinar May 7th: Nursing & Theatre Department Collaborative Simulations

nursing simulations with theatre students

Last week I mentioned that SimulationIQ from Education Management Solutions had a great database of medical simulation whitepapers and recorded webinars. Learn all about the EMS database of clinical simulation content here. I just received word that the next free online webinar is taking place May 7th and is entitled “A Collaborative Simulation: Nursing and Theatre Departments Use Forum Theatre to Teach End-of-Life Skills”. Even if you are not at a campus with a theatre program, medical simulation programs should consider reaching out to local schools or theatre groups to explore collaborative relationships as this provides a unique and mutually beneficial exercise for both groups.

Abstract: Nursing students must gain knowledge and develop skills in end-of-life care as part of their education. However, students may not have the opportunity during their clinical experiences to care for such a patient. A collaborative effort between the nursing and theatre departments at one college addresses this possible deficit. The webinar will describe the method of forum theatre and explain how it has been used to teach end-of-life nursing skills.

Wednesday, May 7 at 2:00 pm EDT (1:00 pm CDT12:00 pm MDT11:00 am PDT)
