For the next week you can watch HealthySimAdmin‘s 2-hour opening session “Collaborative Simulation Program Development (Across Disciplines and/or Institutions)” lead by University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Nursing Dean Carolyn Yucha RN, PhD, FAAN for FREE right here on HealthySimulation.com!
HealthySimAdmin was the world’s first broadcasted event providing an open and online discussion to share administrative solutions for the “how to” of medical simulation. Earlier this month, over 105 simulation program administrators from around the world participated in-person or online for the HealthySimAdmin during this opening session lead by Dean Carolyn Yucha, which was then followed by a panel discussion / Q&A session with administrators from hospital, military, community college and university nursing programs, EMS providers as well as medical simulation consultants.
Be sure to watch the introduction to HealthySimAdmin and stay tuned for access to the recorded sessions from this innovative meeting designed to support the professional development of healthcare simulation program administrators!
Imagine splitting the cost of a brand new simulation center and operational program in thirds, while simultaneously increasing access to equipment, space and staff support. Now also consider the benefits of partnering with other healthcare professional disciplines to further breakdown the traditional educational training silos through your simulation program. Dean Carolyn Yucha RN, PhD, FAAN from UNLV’s Nursing and Allied Health Programs will launch our discussion into how to develop a multi-disciplinary multi-institutional collaborative simulation center. Dean Yucha spent three years leading the development of the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas, which supports the clinical education of three distinct institutions across a multitude of disciplines. Following Dean Yucha’s presentation, the HealthySimAdmin panel of experts will continue the discussion of related topics such as stakeholder identification and board/committee needs, types of umbrella administrative structures, architectural design considerations, financial reimbursement systems, building and program support services, legal requirements, ongoing collaborative issues and more. Funding models will be touched upon briefly but will be explored in greater depth during subsequent sessions. Audience question and answer sessions will follow the lecture and panel discussion. In summary, in this session we will learn how to build and continue a successful collaborative partnership for a medical simulation program.
