Transfer of Learning: From Healthcare Simulation to Clinical Practice

How far we have come from the days when nursing education consisted of lectures with overhead projectors and acetate sheets with diagrams and anatomical drawings. For those of you who remember those days, you probably also remember that when the bulb went out, you often waited weeks for a replacement! The introduction of PowerPoint in [...]

IPE vs. Multidisciplinary Education: What’s the Difference for Clinical Simulation (w/ Downloadable Tool)

Defining interprofessional education (IPE) and distinguishing the term from multidisciplinary education is challenging since so many different definitions for both terms are found in the literature. However, the distinction is important when it comes to healthcare simulation — maybe so much so that we might even need a new term! Here guest author Dr. Kim Baily [...]

New Research Suggests CPR Manikins Find Only 2% of Learners Competent

While cardiopulmonary resuscitation is known to significantly increase the rate of patient survival following cardiac arrest, CPR only works when applied correctly. So what happens when learners learn incorrectly during clinical simulation? While we might think that human instructors assess better than resuscitation simulators, new research shockingly suggests that CPR manikins find only 2% of [...]
