EMS Tip of the Week: SimGHOSTS Help Educators Simulate Medical Care
According to conservative estimates, more than 440,000 patients die each year from medical errors in the United States alone, and millions more suffer associated injuries. Thankfully, emerging healthcare education simulation programs around the world are addressing this very issue through advances in modern technology. In these sim labs, new students and recertifying professionals enter realistic patient care environments that house high-fidelity, life-like patient manikins that speak, breathe, and react to medications.
In this episode I have Lance Baily on from SimGHOSTS and HealthySimulation. The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose goal is to provide the technical and operational training support required by individuals and institutions around the United States and the World that are improving patient care outcomes by educating healthcare professionals via advanced simulated learning environments.
