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 [...]
The ALERT (Acute Life Threatening Events Recognition and Treatment) is a well-established program that focuses on the detection and management of patients becoming unwell in the healthcare setting. The course was developed to provide the multi-profession healthcare team with a systematic approach to recognizing, treating and escalating to a higher level of care when needed. [...]
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 [...]
The University of California Riverside School of Medicine (UCRSOM) opened its doors in 2013 graduating its first class in 2017 with seventy-seven students to be admitted this fall. How did this sim program come about and how is simulation in healthcare evolving at this institution? Today Dr. Kim Baily PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, takes a [...]
