Topic outline

  • Faculty Development - Catherine Morse, PhD, MSN, RN

    This presentation will present different models of simulation faculty development.  Learners will engage in a discussion of essential skills for simulation faculty and strategize how to overcome barriers to faculty development.

  • Debriefing the Debriefer - Catherine Morse, PhD, MSN, RN

    This presentation will provide a structured process for debriefing the debriefer after conducting a debriefing with learners.  The Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare (DASH) will be presented and discussed as a tool to facilitate the learning conversation. Participants will have the opportunity to practice elements of debriefing the debriefer.

  • Operations Wizardry on a Budget - Janet Willhaus, PhD, RN, CHSE

    This presentation will offer a variety of time and money saving techniques that can be used during simulation lab operations. Solutions to problems such as organization, storage, and quick room turnover will be discussed. Learners will reseal and repackage an IV back for reuse at the end of the presentation.

  • Simulation: Student Learning & Instructor Engagement - Leann Laubach PhD, RN

    This session will identify the current guidelines related to simulation design as well as inform participants of the advantages and disadvantages of using instructor written versus pre-purchased scenarios in simulations.  The findings of the research study on student learning in simulation based on instructor engagement in design will be discussed.   

  • Simulation Starting Points: Psychological Safety and Beyond - Nichole Jackson DNP, MSN, RN, CNE

    This interactive session will allow you to explore the essentials of facilitating effective simulation experiences based on best practice evidence in simulation science. A review of best practice standards with a focus on the establishment of psychological safety in the simulation environment and needed staff/faculty preparation for simulation will be presented.

  • Simulated Clinical Experiences: Ready, Set, Go - Donna Badowski, DNP, MSN, RN CNE and Kimberly Oosterhouse, PhD, RN, CCRN-K, CNE

    The IOM report (2010) makes a call to nursing education to shift from task –based proficiencies to higher level competencies; patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, safety, and informatics. Studies have shown improved skill performance using deliberate practice within simulation (Ackerman, 2009; Alinier, Hunt, Gordon, & Harwood, 2006). Benner and colleagues (2010) define situated coaching as a “signature pedagogy” (p. 30) in nursing education whereby educators coach students through experiences. Himes and Ravert (2012) developed a modified approach to situated coaching, which includes situated cognition with peer coaching, in their study on fundamental skills acquisition.  A national study by Hayden et al. (2014) showed simulation can be as effective as the traditional clinical experience for pre-licensure nursing students. The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how deliberate practice with peer coaching embedded in simulated clinical experiences can effectively be used as an alternate to traditional clinical experiences.

  • IPE Simulations: Start Simple and Build - Josie Scott, MSN, RN

    This presentation will discuss the building of our IPE (Interprofessional Education) Simulation  we do yearly called “Hospital Day” which involves Practical Nursing, Radiography, Surgical Technology, Medical Office, CNA, and AUA programs within our campus.   It will also describe how it progressed into a yearly Mass Casualty exercise involving our community partners such as EMSA, Fire, Police and Homeland Security.  Participant will learn what was successful and the challenges faced to help them create their own IPE Simulations.

  • Standardized Patients 101 - Gina Riggs, M.ED, NRP

    SPs are an easy, cheap and very acceptable simulation technique for ALL healthcare providers.  We will cover the why and how we should be using SPs in health education programs.

  • Improving Realism Through Moulage with Manikins or Humans - Jackie Langford, CHSE, BFA, FF/LP

    Simulation is quickly becoming the industry standard in all aspects of healthcare education, whether it be a mass casualty scenario for EMS, care of a sick patient in a hospital setting, anesthesia in the OR, or a ventilator in an ICU.  Realism in the simulated experience helps make the scenario more of a true learning environment.  The more realistic we can make it (the patient…the scenario…the environment…the equipment), the better the learning experience becomes for the student.  This session will be interactive and hands-on learning of a few simple steps to improve realism through moulage.

  • Simulated Patient Care Experience (SPCE) for RN/PN Nursing Education Programs GuidelinesTerri Walker, MSN, RN, OBN Education Consultant

    An overview of the newly adopted OBN Simulation Guidelines will be presented by Terri Walker, MSN, RN OBN Education Consultant
