The 2019 National Forum on Simulation for Quality & Safety, organized in part by takes place May 28th in Vancouver and focusses specifically on simulation in the care delivery setting to meaningfully improve quality and safety. As we know, Healthcare Simulation is revolutionizing approaches to patient safety and quality improvement in healthcare, with stronger connections [...]
The reality of video games is that when specifically designed, they DO improve skillsets of the gamer involved. Hand eye coordination, critical thinking, prioritization, logistics, pathfinding, and general strategy optimization are all inherent within the medium, providing so many benefits similar to the “games” we play in healthcare simulation.
So how could a video game diminish [...]
Evaluating the effectiveness of your medical simulations is a crucial component of building a successful long-term program. On numerous occasions, the raw data the healthcare simulation team captured at the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas over a period of many years eventually became critically important for arguments when requesting operational changes our lead administrators. [...]
Martin Makary, MD, MPH recently wrote an article entitled The Power of Video Recording: Taking Quality to the Next Level earlier this month for The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Dr. Makary writes “At Indiana University, Rex et al2 decided to use the recording feature of colonoscopy video equipment to address the long-standing problem of [...]
