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 [...]
Learners are more likely to focus on desired learning objectives when they participate in life-like scenarios and receive information which is consistent with the healthcare situation being studied. This article, which is part 6B of a series entitled Physiology, The Force Behind Simulation – A Guide for Sim Techs, covers the physiological response, treatment and [...]
Simulation staff need to understand research theory either to fully participate in their own department’s research or to review the current literature with a view to improving their own simulation program. Today in Part 3 of HealthySim’s Series on “Understanding Research”, we introduce some of the key basics of statistics. Linked below are all the [...]
This exclusive HealthySim article provides key information about how to write correct physician orders for healthcare simulation scenarios. When details are missing from physician order sheets, learners may become confused and will likely focus on the order error instead of the original designated learning objectives. Today’s article was guest authored by Kim Baily PhD, MSN, RN, [...]
