Using Simulators to Teach Patients – Nemours Children's Hospital Leads the Way
Parents dealing with new clinical care of their child requires a relaxed and safe learning environment. Nemour Children’s Hospital is brilliantly utilizing the power of simulation to safely train parents on clinical procedures for such child care. Using manikins provides stressed out parents with a calm way to practice new skills without the worry of hurting their child. Genius!
“The Nemours Center for Clinical Excellence uses high and low fidelity models to teach a parent how to care for her daughter’s tracheotomy. They also use the medical simulation tools to train school nurses on how to be prepared to care for students in public schools in Central Florida.”
