BioMedCentral Interviews Advances in Simulation Editor Debra Nestel on Launch of New Journal

advances in simulation

Exciting news announced at IMSH 2016 by Debra Nestel and SESAM that a new Journal “Advances in Simulation” was launched during the event! BioMedCentral.com interviewed Professor Nestel about this new publication and the future of medical simulation. Debra Nestel is Professor of Simulation Education in Health Care at Monash University, Australia. For over 25 years she has used simulation as an educational method in the context of health care. Professor Nestel has a particular interest in human-based simulations and is experienced in research and development of several simulation modalities.

BioMedCentral.com Asked Debra, “What do you hope will be achieved in the field in the next ten years”?

The seeds of the achievements for the next decade are likely to be planted now. I’ll offer five ideas:

  • First, there is already sufficient simulation research to enable meaningful reviews. This is likely to lead to new theories (of the middle range rather than unified) that will shape further research and the work of simulation practitioners.
  • Second, we will see simulation embedded in curricula for all health and social care professionals. Access to simulation will widen and a greater breadth of modalities will be adopted.
  • Third, professional development for simulation practitioners will lead to greater simulation specialism with a parallel advance of all clinical teachers at minimum thinking about using simulation to design learning activities.
  • Fourth, there will be really exciting developments in technology-based simulations, especially with augmented and virtual realities.
  • Fifth, simulation will form part of patient (and where appropriate their carers) education as well as providing ways of giving the wider community access to health and social care practices such that they may help improve the very services designed for them.
  • Finally, all of these achievements will contribute directly or indirectly to improving patient safety.

Timothy Clapper PhD Articles on TeamSTEPPS Communication Training Opportunities for Medical Simulation Programs

dr timothy clapper

Just received an email from my good friend Timothy Clapper, PhD regarding yet ANOTHER great article he has produced regarding TeamSTEPPS communication practices with regards to healthcare simulation. TeamSTEPPS was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality utilizing CRM communication models from the space and aviation industry. Timothy’s work continues to innovate within our community, helping simulation champions better recognize and utilize simulation as a medium for revolutionary change within healthcare.

TeamSTEPPS is a teamwork system designed for health care professionals that is:

  • A powerful solution to improving patient safety within your organization. An evidence-based teamwork system to improve communication and teamwork skills among health care professionals.
  • A source for ready-to-use materials and a training curriculum to successfully integrate teamwork principles into all areas of your health care system.
  • Scientifically rooted in more than 20 years of research and lessons from the application of teamwork principles.
  • Developed by Department of Defense’s Patient Safety Program in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

TeamSTEPPS provides higher quality, safer patient care by:

  • Producing highly effective medical teams that optimize the use of information, people, and resources to achieve the best clinical outcomes for patients.
  • Increasing team awareness and clarifying team roles and responsibilities.
  • Resolving conflicts and improving information sharing.
  • Eliminating barriers to quality and safety.

Timothy’s Letter and Article Links:

Dear Lance & HealtySimulation.com Readers,

Just an update on my latest article for TeamSTEPPS. You may recall that my first article described TeamSTEPPS and the need for this tool to improve patient safety. I am happy to share that this article is still at #25 on ScienceDirect’s top 25 articles!

This was followed by a second article that outlined some reasons why TeamSTEPPS programs fail and ways to work through those issues. My latest one, just released, focuses on next steps in TeamSTEPPS, including the observation that must be done to assess additional simulation training needs.

A History of Virtual Reality

history of virtual reality

An interesting article caught my attention today covering a history of Virtual Reality. While we love the modern advancements of simulation technology in healthcare – we should reflect on the long history of virtual reality that has lead us to this recent adoption of technologies heavily utilized by other industries like aviation. Check out this snippet from a new article from RedOrbit entitled The History of Virtual Reality:

“Today, VR technology is big business in many areas of the tech, medical and military community. However, the technology is not a new one, as the term can trace its roots back more than a century. In fact, the first mention of virtual reality can be traced back to the 1860s, when 360-degree art via panoramic murals began to appear. While this may be a very archaic description of the term virtual reality, the future of the technology only gets better.

Simulators, which today are almost everywhere, were introduced in the 1920s. Early vehicle simulators may have helped bring about more futuristic systems that now include flight simulators, golfing simulators, spacecraft simulators, as well as simulation-based video gaming. In fact, Thomas A. Furness III would develop the first visual flight simulator for the US Air Force in 1966.”

Building the Future of Nursing: New Book Has Healthcare Simulation Strategies

building the future of nursing

The NLN recently released a collection of peer-reviewed articles in a book entitled Innovations in Nursing Education: Building the Future of Nursing edited by Linda Captui, EdD, RN which was co-published by: Wolters Kluwer and Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.

Chapter 6, entitled “Putting It All Together: Building A Multidisciplinary, Multi-Institutional Clinical Simulation Center”, was co-authored by myself, Dr. Carolyn Yucha, Dr. Shirlee Synder, Dr. Bar-on and David Frommer AIA. The article covered the three year development process of building the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas – which is a 31,000 sq. ft. facility shared among the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Nursing, Nevada State College School of Nursing and the University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine.

The peer-reviewed paper covers the initial funding model, collaborative meeting structure, room layout designs, initial staffing roadmaps and important lessons learned of the three-school simulation center. Most importantly the article touches on the administrative commitments that were necessary to build a collaborative healthcare learning space – which were indeed permanent and quite serious as “meetings were generally held biweekly over the course of 18 months before the center opened”.

Staffing notes reminded the reader that “because the field of healthcare simulation is rather new, hiring experienced healthcare simulation technicians was a challenge. Therefore, simulation technicians were selected based on their backgrounds in either healthcare of technology, work ethic, interpersonal and organizational skills, ability to work as a team, and comfort with ambiguity.”

A few of the lessons learned include:

  • Plan to invest far more time in collaborative projects.
  • Identify the stakeholders early in the process
  • Take time to reflect on achievements when it seems as though profess is not forthcoming.

The 24-chapter book also includes other simulation-based papers including “Out of the SimLab and into the Classroom: Using High-Fidelity Simulation as an Active Classroom Teaching Strategy” and “Mid-Scenario Reflection: A Teaching Strategy for Simulation in Nursing Education”.
