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.
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.
The 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
