Presented by: Elisabeth Mcgee PhD, DPT, MOT, CHSE

Presentation Abstract

In this virtual session, participants learn about the Center for Innovative Clinical Practice (CICP) and how we are delivering our interprofessional virtual simulation program. We will provide an overview and examples of how to create an interprofessional virtual simulation using simulation gaming technology, tele-simulation with standardized patients, virtual escape rooms, and 360 virtual clinical environments. We will discuss virtual simulation pedagogy, scenario development, facilitation, and debriefing. Innovative and evidence-based strategies and technologies will be discussed that advance virtual simulation education.

Type of Offering: Webinar
Teaching Method: Lecture with Slide Presentation

Learning Objectives

  1. Discover how to implement a virtual simulation program.
  2. Explore how to use innovative technologies to create interactive IPE simulation experiences.
  3. Discover how to grow your Standardized Patient program in a virtual and tele-health environment.

Suggested Learner Level: Intermediate
