Hey Sim Champs! An awesome new healthcare simulation resource for you to check out today from our friends at Simulcast: Victoria Brazil and Jesse Spur! In these ad hoc mini-episodes the team attempts to “pause and discuss” a topic of interest in the simulation community, highlight upcoming conferences, grab vox pop style interviews with great simulationistas and generally stop, take five and appraise the landscape.
Victoria is an emergency physician and medical educator. Victoria is an enthusiast in the social media and FOAM world and a keen runner. Jesse is founder and editor of injectableorange.com blog and podcast, the Director of Simulation Education for the Teaching Institute, and a novice social media, simulation, and quality assurance researcher. Together they are providing audio interviews around the world with those engaging in healthcare simulation.
From Victoria & Simulcast:
On Day 2 of APMSH I attended a fascinating workshop with Lance Baily of SimGHOSTS.org and HealthySimulation.com fame. Lance works out of Las Vegas and has established a global reputation in the technical aspects of conducting simulation, for maximal learning effect. Some of these skills are drawn from his previous life working in Hollywood, and our workshop was based on some of those:
- Getting the right camera angle
- Using tripods
- Thinking about sound
Other Simulcast Resources include the Simulcast Journal Club, which is a monthly series heavily inspired by the ALiEM MEdIC Series. It aims to encourage simulation educators to explore and learn from publications on Healthcare Simulation Education. Each month we will publish a case and link a paper with associated questions for discussion. We will moderate and summarise the discussion at the end of the month, including exploring the opinions of experts from the field.
