Using Clinical Simulation to Improve Medication Administration Safety
September 24, 2020 at 10:00 AM, Pacific Coast Time Zone
Presented by: Kim Baily PhD, MSN, RN
This webinar is designed to introduce nursing educators to the use of healthcare simulation in order to provide an immersive learning experience for undergraduate and registered nurses to improve medication administration skills. The class will outline current statistics related to medication errors and near misses as well as the causes of the errors. Medication administration standards and evidence based practice related to medication administration will be reviewed. Literature that supports simulation as an effective learning modality for nursing students transitioning from the classroom and skills checkoffs to the clinical setting and for ongoing training for registered nurses will be highlighted. Examples of healthcare simulation scenarios that include medication administration will be discussed.

Dr. Kim Baily, MSN, PhD, RN has had a passion for healthcare simulation since she pulled her first sim man out of the closet and into the light in 2002. She has been a full-time educator and director of nursing and was responsible for building and implementing two simulation programs at El Camino College and Pasadena City College in Southern California. Dr. Baily is a member of both INACSL and SSIH. She serves as a consultant for emerging simulation programs and has previously chaired Southern California Simulation Collaborative, which supports healthcare professionals working in simulation in both hospitals and academic institutions throughout Southern California. Dr. Baily has taught a variety of nursing and simulation-related courses in a variety of forums, such as on-site simulation debriefing workshops and online courses. Since retiring from full time teaching, she has written over 100 healthcare simulation educational articles for Healthysimulation.com. These articles cover many topics related to simulation including debriefing methods, job descriptions, simulation lab administration, introductory physiology for non- medical sim team members and tips for building a successful simulation program. Many of the articles include templates and hints and are all downloadable for free.
