Here’s the latest recap of healthcare simulation topics found from the global news stream:
Special Operations Medics Refine Tactical Combat Casualty Care: As a 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) battalion surgeon, Maj. Hunter Winegarner assists in the planning and execution of medical training across the Group. On April 6th, Winegarner led a group of medics through some of the most realistic training Fort Carson has to offer. To help close that gap as much as possible, Group medics use the Medical Simulation Training Center (MSTC) to provide realistic scenarios that they can work through. The MSTC provides training aids that simulate casualties who can bleed from their extremities, have difficulty breathing, and have eyes that are unresponsive to light.
WSU Provides Simulated Training to Enhance Medical Education Program: In August, Washington State University’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine will debut its medical education program, which leads to a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree. The program will welcome 60 students to its charter class. “By integrating clinical, simulation, and case-based learning experiences, the College prepares graduates to lead health care teams,” says Dr. Ann Poznanski, pathologist and Associate Dean for Curriculum. “They learn to coordinate resources in new ways to improve patient care and the health of their communities.”
