  • Expand your knowledge by learning from a diverse group of sim admins
    The HealthySimAdmin panel of experts is comprised of successful simulation program administrators from a variety of settings including: community, state and university nursing schools, medical schools, EMS programs, hospitals, IT departments, and the military. Additional panel members will include leading industry consultants who have designed and managed sim labs around the globe. HealthySimAdmin will not only share “proven-to-work” techniques from others in your field but also provide an expanded perspective from others that utilize medical simulation within healthcare.
  • Learn from your new professional community
    Currently there are no professional degrees in medical simulation program management. Simulation program administrators have varied experience which may include successful or maybe, not so successful, strategies for managing a simulation center/lab. For example, a sim lab program manager with an IT background will have little trouble integrating their center’s network technology, but may find clinical educator training and buy-in much more challenging. In that sense, our growing international community is the best resource we have for learning and sharing the best practices in each of the numerous facets necessary to operate a simulation lab. HealthySimAdmin’s mission is to create a global and shared community online space where healthcare simulation program administrators can find and share information unique to medical simulation management.
  • Participate from anywhere in the world
    What happened in Vegas did not stay in Vegas with HealthySimAdmin! With any high-speed internet connection you will be able to watch HealthySimAdmin wherever you are. Join an international audience of healthcare simulation managers who have already watched HealthySimAdmin and gain global insight into the operations and development of a successful medical simulation program.
  • Maximize your time with medical simulation admin specific content
    While the methodology of simulation in healthcare continues to expand exponentially across the globe, the discussions regarding the operations and management of this technology are relatively new. And while other medical simulation-based meetings do exist, they primarily serve our community’s clinical educators. Thus, resources and guidance for program administrators remains limited. To address this challenge, HealthySimAdmin held an event specifically designed to meet the needs of healthcare simulation program administrators. Catch up to the hundreds of other administrators who have already watched HealthySimAdmin and maximize your time and resources by engaging with content that is as unique as your profession!

Help Fund Movie That Connects Aviation Simulation to Healthcare Simulation

aviation team training into healthcare

IndieGoGo, a crowd-funding platform for independent projects, is hosting the opportunity to donate towards: “Beyond the Checklist: A Feature Length Documentary Film”, which explores how lessons from industries like aviation can provide solutions to the crisis of patient deaths and injuries in healthcare. I urge you to join me in pledging towards this important documentary film which will attempt to show how training in the aviation business using evolved communication practices has lead to an incredible safety record, especially in comparison to the number of deaths attributed to medical error now occurring in the United States.

The Concept Behind the Film:

“On January 9, 2009. US Airways Flight 1549 landed in the middle of the frigid Hudson River in New York. Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and his crew – as well as ferry and Coast Guard crews – had all practiced and trained in teamwork for years. Which is why not a single passenger or crew- member was seriously injured when the plane was totally disabled when struck by a flock of Canada Geese.

Our 60-minute film will demonstrate that healthcare can transform its culture and stem the epidemic of medical errors and injuries in the US and elsewhere. It can do this by learning lessons from the safety model and culture change movement that transformed commercial aviation over the last 30 years and that has been successfully adapted to make other high-risk industries much safer. The film “Beyond the Checklist” shows exactly how this safety model and culture can be implemented in the healthcare industry.

Take a trip on a $14 million dollar flight simulator, and see how pilots, fight attendants, ground crew, and air traffic controllers all learn to work together to make air travel safer. Sit in on training sessions that teach people on very different rungs of the health care hierarchy how to communicate so they can form quick teams and react instantly in crisis. Here, pilots aren’t only graded on how well they guide a plane during both routine flights and crises but on how well they communicate and work as a team with their crew. Flight attendants mechanics, and gate agents and many others learn to speak up when appropriate and challenge each other, as well as the captain and rather than experiencing “push back,” they are thanked for it.

“Crew Resource Management gave you a process and a language…so that if I said to you, captain I’m not comfortable with this, he had to hear that because it was done in a way that we were all trained,” recalls Nancy Burns, who was a flight attendant for 39 years both and experienced the change in culture when aviation introduced CRM. “It meant that if you spoke up they had to listen. It also meant that you had a responsibility to speak up.” Airline personnel are also encouraged to report mistakes – even serious violations – without being punished and all airlines share information about near misses, errors, and other problems to change practice and insure safety.

The film concludes by showing how the lessons of these pioneering practitioners and institutions can be implemented in every single hospital and health care facility so that every patient everywhere is safe. Each and every one of us will someday be a patient. Our lives and the lives of our loved ones depend on whether our caregivers are trained to work together as a team, can learn together to prevent mistakes, and are able to create a culture of safety in healthcare.”
