Still Time To Register for Cincinnati Children’s Regional Simulation Conference September 22nd & 23rd!

pediatric simulation conference

With simulation experts like Dr. Paul Phrampus and Dr. Jennifer Arnold speaking, this is a regional simulation event you don’t want to miss! Taking place next month September 22nd and 23rd, there is still plenty of time for you to register and receive CME and CEU credits from this innovative event.

But HURRY as Cincinnati Children’s 2014 Regional Simulation Conference is rapidly approaching! Their conference will be taking place at Xavier University’s Cintas Center late September for two days (22nd/23rd) and will be targeting adult and pediatric multidisciplinary healthcare providers who are using or are interested in using simulation. The event will provide a forum for the exchange of simulation strategies and innovations to enhance education, patient safety, and quality improvement through plenary sessions, interactive workshops, research, expert panels, and podium presentations. The event hosts have told me they are thrilled to offer many varied and exciting sessions around using simulation in new and innovative ways including the infamous “SimWars” competition in which 3 teams from critical care units will be competing in a simulation competition designed for fun and best-practice learning objectives.

Their keynote speaker Dr. Jennifer Arnold of TLC’s The Little Couple, as part of this conference. Dr. Arnold is a neonatologist at Texas Children’s hospital and is a well-known public figure and highly engaging and inspirational speaker. Click here to visit the event page now!

Leveraging the critical decision method and simulation-based training to accelerate resident recognition of sepsis



Gary Geis, MD – Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center

How to Effectively Use Simulations to Develop Clinical Skills
Katie Ondo – Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center

The participant will list, define and apply the critical elements of simulation-based education using the 12 steps for planning a simulation from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. Participants will work collaboratively to create highly effective simulations.

Developing Leadership and Systems Thinking Through Simulation at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
Carol Caldwell, PhD – Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center

This session will focus on how Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center incorporates a leadership hospital simulation as a means to develop strategic thinking, systems thinking and business and financial acumen.

One Direction for the Newborn
Suzanne Fraiche, BSN, MSN – Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center

This session will present the key features involved in initiating an in situ simulation program for the newborn resuscitation and stabilization in Level I and II nurseries.

Deploying New Technologies to Enhance Simulation Experiences throughout the Academic Spectrum: Nursing Undergraduate through Post Master Courses
Debi Sampsel – University of Cincinnati

This session will present how using various types of technology can enhance undergraduate and graduate students’ interactive experiences in an Intraprofessional Innovation Collaboratory simulation setting.

An innovative approach to neurological education using a standardized patient
Nichole Kelsey, BSN – Cleveland Clinic

Participants will participate in an interactive video-based simulation where they will be asked to identify the patient problem through an audience response system, followed by a small group exercise, and reflection on application to individual practice needs.

Implementation of an End of Life Simulation into the Baccalaureate Nursing Program
Gina Fieler RN,MSN – Northern Kentucky University

This presentation will discuss the simulation format, implementation into the baccalaureate program, objectives of the simulation, and evaluations of the simulation experience by students and nursing faculty.

“Sim Wars”

IMSH 2014 Comes to A Close

jen arnold imsh 2014

After five days of medical simulation connections community, industry and course content came to a close yesterday with a closing plenary by Jen Arnold MD, MSc  “To Err is Human, To Simulate Divine”. Jen reminded us that medical error is the 5th leading cause of death in United States and that we can influence this poor statistic through healthcare simulation, because the methodology and technology can be used to uncover latent threats to patient safety. Learn more about Dr. Arnold at http://jenniferarnoldmd.com/.

Over the next few months, HealthySimulation.com will be releasing vendor video interviews captured during the event so that our international community of readers can learn about the latest and greatest in medical simulation.
