What if you and your entire healthcare simulation team could get instant 24/7 access to an ever expanding library of innovative ‘best practice’ presentations, from some of the world’s leading experts…
… at only a fraction of the cost of attending annual conferences?
When a door closes, a window opens…
Even before COVID-19, starting or expanding a healthcare simulation program was difficult enough. But now, like everything else in our lives, the global pandemic has multiplied the stress of starting or improving a clinical simulation program. Getting administrator buy-in, overcoming faculty resistance, designing sim labs, securing funding, training staff, debriefing purposefully, programming scenarios — the list of challenges can seem especially daunting with the Coronavirus restricting our every turn.
With only a handful of medical simulation degree programs available around the world, those new to the field have always been forced to rely on community support to learn and develop themselves professionally. Yet sadly since April of this year, every single in-person medical simulation conference in the world has been cancelled or converted to a virtual event, cutting off vital lifelines to our short and long-term success.
Contrasting this absence, at the same time we are experiencing a dramatic increase in the need for new clinical training tools to combat the closure of campus classrooms, prohibition of sim lab activities and –most concerning of all– cancellation of clinical rotations. Right now, the needs of the many far outweigh the ability of the few.
Clearly, the healthcare education and training sector has never experienced a time like this before.
All over the world, simulation champions such as yourself are scrambling to overcome the multitude of stressful challenges. Many of us find ourselves struggling to maintain the educational outcomes normally expected by administrators, while under a whole new set of pressures to figure out specialized coronavirus reopening procedures, remote and distance-based learning technologies, emergency grant funding opportunities and more. But with so many of us quarantined at home, the opportunities to connect, network, learn, and prepare needed to improve our simulation programs have remained out of reach.
While the odds seem stacked against us more than ever before, there may indeed be a silver lining hidden within the daily headaches and constant chaos. The unspoken fact is this: there has never been a greater opportunity to make real, permanent, and lasting change in the way your institution educates and trains its learners with simulation.
Since February of this year when the global emergency of COVID-19 started becoming more clear, HealthySimulation.com’s entire team has been working around the clock to build a brand new platform that will better connect you to your global community. A platform that will empower all of us to communicate, learn, and share best practices for simulation in healthcare in a more direct and meaningful way.
But first, we just have to ask…
Does any of this sound familiar?
- Because of COVID-19, you’ve been tasked with getting digital remote learning simulation experiences up and running as fast as possible since courses and clinical rotations are no longer possible?
- You’e a clinical educator without any prior experience in clinical simulation and your administration expects you to integrate sim across the curriculum by next semester with only a .5 FTE?
- You’re an experienced simulation manager but lack the resources, staff, budget, or equipment to expand your fledgling program?
- Your department has been gifted a new high-fidelity simulator but it has been sitting in the box for the last two semesters because “no one knows how to run it”?
- Learners are showing interest in your simulation scenarios but they aren’t demonstrating improved outcomes over time, faculty always seem to be running things “on the fly”?
- You’re a new simulation technician and need to know about more professional training opportunities beyond just “learning on the job”?
Maybe your program has tried to start or expand sim before…
To get anywhere in simulation takes a great deal of effort, but the energy and the resources to keep going never subside. Maybe the sim program got off to a good start — but your ongoing passion just isn’t shared by other faculty, IT departments, or administrators.
Did you know that industry experts suggest that on average simulation staff turn-over occurs every 2 years? Each time someone walks out the door all that hard-earned experience goes with them, forcing some programs to start from scratch over and over again.
While there are some great workshops and books out there, the inability to regularly engage with experts to get the answers we need can make us question our career choice!
Do you find yourself like many of our 35,000 monthly readers, sometimes losing motivation fast from the push-pull of quick demands and slow rejections?
Ever wish someone would just take you by the hand and guide you through each step in order, and that you had a way you could just ask questions when you need to and get simulation moving again?
You know greater success with simulation is possible…
As an early-adopter with an innovative mindset, it would not be hard for you to imagine the satisfaction you will feel when your healthcare institution has fully adopted medical simulation.
When visualizing from your future perspective, can you picture the fruits of your labors: a bustling simulation center with a robust and happy workforce, passionate educators working side by side with knowledgable technicians, active learners appreciating their clinical experiences, a fully adopted policy manual support backed by a healthy budget, and all with the admiration of institutional leadership and the local community.
Just for a moment, think about how you will feel once you and your colleagues have completely figured simulation out, having achieved a plan that is working. Rather than lifting the heavy boulders required to convince others to believe in simulation, imagine being able to spend your time tweaking your program to perfection.
Are you ready to drive forward but at times feel stuck in 2nd gear?
We know there are a lot of confusing questions that need answering on the road to such success. If you don’t have a plan to follow, or better yet experts to learn from, it can be very easy to make costly mistakes, get off track, and never end up at the finish line. Trust us, our team has been there! Without such help, the daunting task of building a successful simulation program can sometimes seem impossible to accomplish at all.
Have you ever felt like…
- You are ready to start using simulation but don’t know where to start?
- You want to build scenarios that do more than just provide learners with “more confidence”?
- You don’t know which types of simulators your institution specifically needs?
- Your institution continues to see little improvement in alarming statistics related to dangerous medical errors and patient safety practices?
- Administrators keep adding more initiatives to your department but you are already working overtime as it is?
- Your debrief sessions keep turning into blame arguments without real learning outcomes?
We know that learning from our peers is one of the best way to move forward fast but…
We can’t always send our entire team to every
When in-person conferences for healthcare simulation do start back up again, budget conscientious simulationists will quickly remember how costly it can be to send an entire team to participate in these rare learning opportunities. Even when we can go, the lingering question remains: Who will run the sim lab while the staff are gone?
Don’t get us wrong, participation in these special conference opportunities for hands-on workshops, plenary lectures, networking mixers, award ceremonies, and exhibit hall opportunities is certainly justified and, highly encouraged.
However, the costs of airline travel, meal per diem reimbursement, per attendee registration fees (especially when late), not to mention exorbitant official hotel bills, can limit the number of team members who can participate each year. Especially so if your simulation program is outside of the United States where the biggest events take place.
When we factor that not every attendee can participate in every presentation, and that work back at the center slows to a standstill, the per presentation cost can be considerable.
Obviously then, complimenting your annual conference investments with an affordable online resource could help to take you even further, faster!
