Goal Directed Simulation at TTC Downunder

Picture1

On July 13th we will be facilitating a super-charged techniques of simulation workshop to some brilliant clinician educators at The Teaching Course Downunder. In order to maximise our 4hrs together, we have curated some of the best FOAM simulation resources available.

Learning Objectives

1)      Participants will learn how to identify opportunities for quality improvement that may be addressed through simulation.

2)      Participants will learn how to manipulate stress to optimise learning outcomes in simulation.

3)      Participants will learn the importance of pre-brief and debrief in simulation and how this differs between workplace and simulation centre course.

4)      Participants will learn how to enhance the psychological realism of simulation.


homeworkThe course participants are asked to complete the following exercise in readiness for the workshop: SMART Goals for Simulation. We will be reviewing and discussing examples in the small group break out sessions.


The sessions will include:

Goal Directed Sim – Jesse Spurr & Clare Richmond

Titration of Stress – Chris Nickson

The Fiction Contract – Confederates, Acting and Simulated Patients  – Clare Richmond & Will Sanderson

Pre-brief – the Foundation of Safe and Effective Sim – George Willis & Jen Williams

Debriefing Q&A Panel – George Willis, Clare Richmond, Jen WIlliams and Ross Fisher – moderated by Jesse Spurr

Learn to Take the Heat at SMACC Dublin

SMACC_DUB_DATES-GREENTOP

Next week the second (much smaller) round of SMACC Dublin registrations go live. In all the hype, don’t forget you can go back and add pre-conference workshop registrations at any time until they are sold out. Too many to decide? Curious about Stress Inoculation Training? Want to find out if Swami exists in real life? We have the workshop for you! Jump on http://www.smacc.net.au and be part of the team looking out how to translate training from other high performance professions into medical education.

Here is a preview of just some of what may be in store for you.

Goal Directed Simulation at The Teaching Course New York

NYC

It is with great excitement and a healthy case of imposter syndrome, that I will be coordinating the simulation workshop at the Teaching Course in New York on the morning of November 13th. In what could only be described as a Dream Team faculty, we will be running 2hrs of small group mini-workshops, followed by a super panel Q&A focusing on debriefing. We want to supercharge the workshop and maximise the participants access to some of the best clinician educators in the business, so I have curated this Flipped Classroom curriculum for In Situ Sim. These are a selection of some of the best FOAM resources to broaden knowledge on the topics that will be workshopped at #TTCNYC15

The first two hours will comprise a brief introduction and overview to the concept of Goal-Directed In Situ Simulation followed by four break out mini workshops:

The Fiction Contract – Confederates and Simulated Patients  – Natalie May & Salim Rezaie

Titration of Stress – Chris Hicks & Swami

Pre-brief and Debrief the bread of the Sandwich – George Willis & Simon Carley

QI through Simulation – Jesse & Brent Thoma

Key to The Future: MNHHS Nursing & Midwifery Conference

                Simulation Education Workshop: Technique, Not Technology: Nursing CPD 2.0

This post is to curate a selection of materials linked to the the Simulation Education Workshop I delivered on May 12th (International Nurses Day) at the inaugural Metro North Hospital and Health Service Nursing and Midwifery Conference.

The central theme of this workshop was scenario based simulation through the progress of a nursing career. There is increasing adoption of simulation as a teaching technique for many technical and team based skills in the health professions. The aim of this workshop was to outline practical tools that can facilitate the utility of simulation at pivotal points in the progress from undergraduate nurse, to new graduate, to team leader, educator, executive and beyond. Nursing has many divergent career pathways, but using the correct framework, I believe scenario based simulation can facilitate a smooth transition, expanding scope of practice, leadership and communication skills and understanding the risks our environments hold.

This Health Workforce Australia (HWA) project aims to connect simulation educators and provide standardised resources that can smooth out the bumps and workload involved in introducing a simulation program into your institution.

Simulation Glossary of Terms

A very useful glossary of the vocabulary of health simulation. Development of a common language is important to take simulation from being an ad hoc event such as the “Mock Arrest” to a more educationally sound and crucially integrated teaching technique. Terminology sets expectation.
