  • 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!

Clinical Skills Lab Coordinator Standard Operating Procedures Example

healthcare simulation lab coordinator policies

Recently I shared the Standard Operating Guide developed at the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas for both the IT and Clinical Simulation Technology Specialists. Today, I am sharing the “SOPs” for the position of Skills Lab Coordinator, who was responsible for:

  • Managing supplies for the entire center including
    • Inventory
    • Stocking
    • Location
    • Barcoding
    • Ordering
    • Checkout
    • Disbursement
  • Coordinating with faculty regarding skills lab setups/tear-downs
  • Managing volunteers and student workers
  • Skills labs signups
  • Setting up and taking down lab setups for
    • Ward
    • Two skills labs
    • Classrooms
  • Task trainer maintenance, tracking and storage
  • “Other duties as assigned”

These SOPs act as a guide with regards to the responsibilities breakdown of the position and were developed to help new staff better understand the position as well as help demonstrate policies and procedures to clinical faculty. As a former director of a healthcare simulation space, I highly recommend you have all current staff create such an SOP document in-order to easier deal with staff rotation, as well as annual reviews of job performance and HR salary increases.
