B-Line Medical "DIY Sim Lab Project" Video Contest Highlights Innovation for SimGHOSTS Australia
Ten SimGHOSTS 2014 Australia participants have submitted “DIY Projects” that increased lab efficiency or realism to the B-Line Medical Video Contest. You can visit the contest page and watch all the submitted DIY projects so that you too can learn how to increase realism and efficiency in your medical simulation program. Up to $1000 in prizes are being offered this year, including an iPad Air and GoPro 3, to be given away by B-Line Medical’s Sandy Yin — who had this to say about Sim Techs and SimGHOSTS:
“Simulation Technicians are the backbone of any program, from troubleshooting simulator equipment to maintaining networks and fielding interesting end user requests. But when sim techs do their jobs well, they’re invisible! We see you, sim techs of the world. We see you even when you’re under a pile of cables, or covered in fake blood.” – Sandy Yin, Marketing Strategist @ B-Line Medical
Videos will not be judged on production quality as much as ability to demonstrate and teach others how they can duplicate these DIY project in their own sim labs! Check out this entry by Suzy O’Brien from the University of the Sunshine Coast on “BGL – Simulated Blood and Hand”:
