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 [...]
Designing a simulation lab is a multi-step process that involves extensive planning. Following a needs assessment, the learning requirements and characteristics of the learners are identified and measurable objectives are written. These objectives will dictate the type of healthcare simulation needed as well as indicate the type of equipment and space requirements to meet the [...]
Not too long ago we shared an article entitled 11 Key Terms to Help Colleagues Learn About Healthcare Simulation, and today we continue that trend with nine more key terms that will help your healthcare simulation program develop! From Situational Awareness to Medical Simulators, and from Laerdal’s SimBaby Infant Manikin to SynDaver’s synthetic cadavers, these [...]
Simulation Champions looking to learn or share more about key topics in healthcare simulation will find great use of some of the new pages HealthySimulation.com has created over the past month. Topics range from explaining a simulation center (or simulation centre in some parts of the world), to what a patient simulator, birthing simulator, simulation [...]
