Healthcare Simulation Strategies assists healthcare educators and training organizations with utilizing patient simulation as a learning technology. If you are considering establishing a patient simulation program, have just started using simulation technology, or are an established simulation education program, Healthcare Simulation Strategies can help you improve your learning outcomes.
Healthcare Simulation Strategies can:
Work with you to establish learning goals and help you find the right simulation technology to meet those goals.
Develop a custom simulation curriculum that meets the needs of your educators and students.
Provide simulation instructor development to help your simulation faculty reach the next level of performance.
Our Mission, Our Promise - To help partners achieve the best learning outcomes possible - Healthcare Simulation Strategies will work with client/partner organizations to achieve the best healthcare provider learning outcomes possible through the use of the most appropriate educational technologies and instructional methods available based on partner needs, capabilities, and budget.
Simulation in Action
Patient simulators can mimic patients in a wide variety of settings. Here, a Laerdal SimMan is connected to a ventilator and has a monitor displaying several physiological reading and waveforms that would typically be found in an Intensive Care Unit. Many simulators available today can easily be placed in specific situations meant to replicate the learners’ working environment. This could include hospital situation such as ICUs, emergency departments, or diagnostic and therapeutic areas; medical or dental office locations; or EMS responder situations such as patient homes and public places. Full-bodied manikin-based simulators are available in a range of capabilities running from low-fidelity simulators with limited realism to high-fidelity simulators that create very realistic patient presentations.
With costs ranging from $2,000 to over $200,000 for a full-bodied manikin-based patient simulator, selecting the right simulator for the objectives of the simulation program is a key early step in simulation program design.
