A Patient's Lens
Patient's and their outcomes are foundational reasons for the inclusion of simulation in health care curricula. How are the patient's perspectives being incorporated into simulation? This workshop will involve discussions and formation of strategies to involve real live patients' perspectives in simulations.

Cost Effective AV Solutions in Simulation
Working with a tight budget? There are many ways to enhance your Av with a little knowledge and creativity. In this presentation, Andy will provide hands-on example of what has worked for the Centre for the Advancement of Simulation and Education (CASE) at the Michener Insititute of Education at UNH. From audio recording to videography, you will see how you can take advantage of small yet effective developments in AV technology.

vSim for Nursing

Part 1 am Session Part 2 pm session

vSim for Nursing is a virtual simulation learning experience for students co-developed by Wolters Kluwer (Lippincott) and Laerdal Medical.  Distilling all the crucial elements of the simulation lab into a cloud-based delivery system, vSim for Nursing can be accessed anytime, anywhere. 

In this session, you'll have the opportunity to explore several vSim patient scenarios first-hand. Experience simulation favourites such as Carl Shapiro, Stan Checketts and Jennifer Hoffman in a completely virtual setting. As a post-simulation activity, you'll have full access to the Lippincott DocuCare electronic health records software to document the care of your virtual patients.

Dress the Set!
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

A tremendous amount of work goes into developing a scenario. From scenario writing to dress rehearsals, details matter. An important element that can enrich the scenario and facilitate authenticity and learner engagement is creating the stage. Just like directors create their set for plays and movies, simulation facilitators need to think about how their “set” matches their scenario. Props, sounds and smells can add another element of realism that can add an important layer to a simulation.

In this interactive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to immerse themselves into a simulation set.  They will explore with their senses as they live the story. Participants will learn ways to dress the set in order to enrichen their simulation.

Harnessing Bluetooth Technology for High Quality Audio with your Patient Simulator
Are you dissatisfied with the poor audio quality that your patient simulator produces?  Are you frustrated that your students have a hard time hearing and understanding your voice through the simulator?  Ever wish you could change your voice on the fly to match the age and gender of the client in your scenarios?  If you’ve pondered any of these questions then this presentation is for you.  In this presentation I will discuss how you can re-route your audio through Bluetooth speaker technology and affordable Windows software.  You can alter your voice, increase sound volume and clarity, and give your voice that punch and crispness found in high quality audio.

What is the impact of a hybrid simulation strategy on recognition and response to a deteriorating patient?
Preparing undergraduate nursing students for practice as new graduates can be a significant challenge within our current health care landscape. The shortage of quality clinical placements is compounded by a worsening nursing shortage, a nursing faculty shortage, increasingly acute patients, and competition for clinical placements. In addition, student exposure to the rapidly deteriorating patient is unpredictable at best in clinical settings. In this quasi-experimental study among undergraduate nursing students, a hybrid simulation intervention was explored to determine the impact on competence and confidence in the recognition and response to the deteriorating patient. The hybrid simulation approach consisted of a combination of high fidelity simulations and virtual simulations. Students in the treatment group attended two eight hour simulation days and had the opportunity to participate in six patient scenarios that included adults and paediatric patients. In addition, students completed two virtual simulation cases. Students in the control group attended clinical as usual with no additional simulation. The results of this study will be presented along with implications for practice, education and further research.

Innovate! Materials and Methods for Healthcare Simulation

Do you moulage? Do you want to repair a manikin? Do you want to build or modify a task trainer? In this practical, fast-paced presentation we will take a look at silicone, gelatin, latex alternatives, adhesives, and solvents that can be utilized in simulation. Included in the presentation are handling and safety considerations. I will also be sharing recipes for realistic items you can use in your own simulations.

At the end of this one-hour workshop you will have a better understanding of how to research, select, and safely use new materials in your simulation environment.
