Medical Simulation Firing on All Cylinders: A Podcast Interview with Dr. John Schaefer – Part 1
Recently on Modern Outcomes, a new medical simulation resource website by Medtech Marketer Matthew Stoltz, there was a podcast interview with Dr. John Schaefer. John is an anesthesiologist, the Director of the MUSC Simulation Center, the director of Healthcare Simulation SC, and the Lewis Blackman Endowed Chair for Clinical Effectiveness and Patient Safety at MUSC. Listen to Part 1 of the podcast here! We’ll share Part 2 shortly!
About Modern Outcomes
Modern Outcomes is cracking open the medical simulation industry to tell stories of wild success, and stories of, let’s just say, “not wild success.” Join us to explore how the development of medical education tools, such as simulators and mobile apps, can improve outcomes in healthcare with superior domain expertise, product design, and marketing.
Through conversations with experts, M+O gets front-line perspectives from the people who build and use medical education products.
About John’s Interview
So you’re telling me that I can save over $240/hr on sim-center operational costs per room, with better training methods, all while increasing use and access? SIGN ME UP.
The medical simulation values we know today; tools built based on learning objectives, efficacy, utility, and measurable outcomes have been evolving since the early 90’s, but only recently have been proven to provide real value in terms of cost savings and outcomes (ahem).
In this episode of the Modern Outcomes podcast, your host, Matthew Stoltz, discusses modern simulation with Dr. John Schaefer, and the role and importance of pairing the right tools with educational methods.
