Many medical simulation laboratories begin life after receiving a one time funding to cover the cost of building the physical structure of the lab and the purchase of clinical simulation equipment such as Human Patient Simulators (HPS). Funding for ongoing maintenance, repair, and updating equipment may or may not be included. Simulation labs however, need [...]
Although the glitzy part of healthcare simulation often focuses on high fidelity manikins, most learning occurs during the debriefing. Debriefing clinical simulation experiences is increasingly understood as a crucial step in clarifying and consolidating insights and lessons from simulations. The Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare (DASH) is designed to assist in evaluating and developing [...]
In 2014, Cedars-Sinai partnered with the U.S. military to design the “operating room of the future” with the goal of improving outcomes during the first “golden hour” of trauma patient care. Today Dr. Kim Baily PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, previous Simulation Coordinator for Los Angeles Harbor College and Director of Nursing for El Camino College, [...]
Healthcare simulation scenarios are designed to address specific learning needs. According to the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) the first step in scenario development is the completion of a needs assessment. The INACSL simulation design standard provides a sequential plan for scenario development which can be adapted for use in clinical [...]
