The one and half day conference will highlight evidenced based practice as a foundation to create and implement simulation. The conference will be interactive and provide fresh perspectives dealing with cutting edge topics in simulation-based healthcare training. The workshops will provide conference attendees an opportunity to apply key principles and improve their skills as simulation-based educators. A key focus this year will be integrating concepts and developing curriculum to incorporate simulation.
This conference is intended for healthcare educators, practitioners and simulation staff: physicians, nurses, respiratory care practitioners, emergency medical personnel, allied health professionals.
- Discuss the future of simulations to research current issues in a changing healthcare environment.
- Analyze curriculum gaps that simulation can address to validate program outcomes.
- Compare and contrast clinical education versus simulations and outcomes being achieved.
- Integrate standards from accrediting groups to enhance curriculums and scenarios.
- Describe interprofessional competencies and how these are directing healthcare education.
- Explore learner needs to implement simulation using a safe, non-threatening environment.
