This 8 hour hands on course is for HCMC employees, residents, staff and educators to learn the basics of simulation. In addition, this class 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. Class content includes types of simulation, adult learning theory, how to use and interact with high fidelity mannequins and scenario development. The class is split up into groups to demonstrate their knowledge by building their own scenario, running their 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 expected to be read and reviewed prior to coming to the class.

Hennepin County Medical Center is accredited by the Minnesota Medical Association (MMA) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Hennepin County Medical Center designates this live activity for a maximum of 7.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Description: This is a three hour Interactive class to teach the basics of how to debrief learners after a simulation. The learners will prepare by watching pre-class podcasts and completing pre-reads sent via email prior to arriving in order to maximize the on-site time. During the course, leaners will practice by running a simulation and debriefing simulations integrating priciples of adult learning theory and the "Debriefing with Good Judgment" approach to prepare them to debrief simulation sessions for their learners in the future. The practice time will be paired with immediate feedback and deliberate practice opportunities, maximizing knowledge gains and skill acquisition during course time.

Class Objective: Demonstrate how to keep the learners maximally engaged while assisting in running a scenario and Develop a “debriefing with good judgment approach” to debrief simulation scenarios for educational sessions.

Nursing Ultrasound Guided IV Insertion Class

This four hour class helps participants become familiar with the principles of ultrasound guided peripheral IV access through a hands-on and skill-based approach. Ultrasound guided peripheral IV insertion allows for cannulation of veins that are neither visible nor palpable, and often eliminates the need for a central line. The class is offered four times a year and has a maximum participation of 25. Register via LMS into the class: NAS141036 Ultrasound Guided Peripheral.

Open Task Training Room Hours

The following times are when the center's task training room is open to independent task training and procedural practice. ISEC staff are available at the below times to do task training room orientation for any interested nurse or resident/member of medical team. Task training orientation consists of how to use the trainers, supplies and equipment for independent procedural training practice, general dos and dont's, how to access the center and review of task training after hours policy. There is no need to register or RSVP. Please call us if you have any questions 612-873-7466.
