Learner Outcomes

  • During this course, learners will demonstrate knowledge and skills needed to develop and facilitate an effective simulation scenario as well as debriefing knowledge and skill by utilizing the "Debriefing with Good Judgment" approach during one simulation scenario.
  • At three months after this course, learners will report via an online survey a higher level of confidence and competence in developing and facilitating an effective simulation scenario and debriefing this scenario by utilizing the "Debriefing with Good Judgment" approach.

This 8 hour hands on course is for interdisciplinary staff such as: physicians, residents, registered nurses, EMTs, Paramedics, RT, Chaplaincy and other interdisciplinary staff and educators to learn the basics of simulation. In addition, this course is helpful to teach simulation basics for clinical and non-clinical staff who are involved with curriculum design or serves as a content expert for clinician orientation and ongoing orientation.

Course content includes types of simulation, adult learning theory, how to use and interact with high fidelity mannequins, scenario development, and "Debriefing with Good Judgment" concepts.  You will be split up into groups to demonstrate your knowledge by building a scenario, running a simulation scenario, operating the high fidelity mannequins and lastly debriefing the learners.

Pre-course work readings will be sent one week prior to class and are required to be completed to attend the course.

At the conclusion of this activity learners should be better able to:

  • Describe the utility of simulation in educating adult learners.
  • Develop all the components of a complete simulation scenario.
  • Develop and demonstrate a "debriefing with good judgment" approach.
  • Synthesize knowledge and performance of best practices in simulation development, delivery, and debriefing.
