Center For Medical Simulation Emphasizes Simulation Instructor Reflection
Gary Rossi, Chief Operating Officer at Harvard’s Center for Medical Simulation recently shared this video interview of Jenny Rudolph, Associate Director for the Institute for Medical Simulation, which was taken during a visit to Spain’s Hospital Virtual Valdecilla:
Earlier this summer during a faculty retreat at the Hospital Virtual Valdecilla (HvV), Jenny Rudolph recorded this video where she talks about the importance of people and their ability to reflect and understand their thinking and emotions as simulation instructors.
The Hospital Virtual Valdecilla is an Affiliate of the Center for Medical Simulation. It serves a reference Center for Simulation throughout Spain, Mexico, Central and South America.
Founded in 1993, CMS was one of the world’s first healthcare simulation centers and continues to be a global leader in the field.
Simulation training at CMS gives healthcare providers a new and enlightening perspective on how to handle real medical situations. Through high-fidelity scenarios that simulate genuine crisis management situations, the CMS experience can open new chapters in the level of healthcare quality that participants provide.
At CMS the focus is on communication, collaboration, and crisis management in order to develop skills and teamwork behaviors that are best learned actively under realistic conditions.
