Healthcare simulation has become an integral part of medical education and ongoing clinical skill development. Debriefing is considered by many to the most important component of medical simulation since debriefing involves a period of time where learners review their frames of reference, reflect on their actions and propose changes for future practice. According to Kolbe, [...]
Healthcare Simulation Debriefing is a period of time following an experiential learning activity during which learners/teams reflect, review and discuss the activity with the goal of improving individual and team clinical skills and judgement. Here we take a deeper look at the simulation debriefing process and provide a handful of examples from the many debriefing [...]
Earlier this week I posted on The Most Common Mistake in Simulation Operations Hiring. There has been a lot of support for this article by both simulation community members and vendors alike! We continue this discussion with a recent poster entitled “Super Technical Teams: Continuing Professional Development to Support Sim Ops” from IMSH 2014 by Nicole [...]
Did you know you can quickly and dramatically increase realism to your medical simulation program through the addition of a voice-changer? Consider the benefits of transforming the sound of a facilitator’s voice into the age and gender of the patient they are simulating.
Imagine creating a more realistic patient presentation for your medical simulation learners by [...]
