IH Mobile Simulation

Close

SUMMARY

The IH Rural Mobile Simulation Program was designed to provide instruction on emergency medicine concepts and to provide an opportunity for rural providers of emergency care to practice potentially life-saving skills. Like emergency medicine, this program is designed to be flexible to varying levels of experience, knowledge, and background. The course facilitators create a non-threatening, informal environment in which emergency care scenarios can be practiced.

With the high‐fidelity human patient simulators, we are able to create close to real life experiences in sites’ own emergency or trauma room, utilizing their supplies, equipment, and staff while building or enhancing relationships within the inter-professional teams.

Skills:

Focus: to enhance medical skills and knowledge, teamwork, and communication by placing more emphasis on learning that involves realtime assessment and feedback.

  • Simulation can be used to improve clinical decisionmaking and psychomotor skills (e.g., airway management, trauma, resuscitation) within a multidisciplinary environment
  • Simulation reduces medical errors through improved teamwork
  • Scenarios can be tailored to meet the needs of the learners
  • Training can be conducted in a setting that minimizes time pressures present in the clinical environment

Target audience: physicians, RNs, LPNs, RTs, Lab, BCAS, Students, Residents, Managers, and Administrators.

Testimonial from previous participants
“Thank you for coming over and sharing your expertise with the Burnaby Hospital staff today. It was very well received. The course provided relevant guidance for starting up our own in situ simulation. It gives us an opportunity to build on your past experience and create a simulation experience tailored to Burnaby Hospital’s need. And thanks for giving us permission to use your template, which is exceptionally well designed. It was incredibly useful to dissect the sim component and examine each part in detail. The afternoon “debriefing the debriefer” session was fun, engaging and practical. Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to learn from you!“

Thank you for inquiring. We will get back to you with relevant information.

A CPD NEEDS ASSESSMENT

In order to help the BC Emergency Medicine Network to better serve you, please take approximately 5-10 minutes to inform us of your CPD needs. Based on this information, we will assist you in identifying the most suitable CPD course(s) from amongst the existing programs in BC.

Bringing CPD to you

Involving leaders of existing simulation programs to increase inter-professional and interdisciplinary team training, CPD is initially focusing on coordinating and expanding distributed, face-to-face simulation programs to meet needs that you identify. Each of these is an opportunity for experiential learning in critical patient management, procedures, and team-based response and a way to acquire new, important knowledge, hone decision-making, and develop and maintain emergency medicine skills. We work closely with the UBC Continuing Development Division and the Rural Care Collaboration program in the UBC Department of Family Practice. We see collaboration with other regional simulation-based programs as a priority, particularly in meeting the goal of sharing knowledge across all regions and emergency department settings in BC.
