Tomorrow: EMS Global Institute for Simulation Training Provides Free Webinar Series by Moulage Concepts

EMS Webinar

“Bridging the Gap in Simulated Training Exercises”

Our friends at GIST and MoulageConcepts.com are joining up to bring you a powerful webinar on the the utilization of Moulage to increase the realism of your simulation experiences!

Presented by:
Bobbie Merica
Moulage Concepts Inc.

Abstract: In this webinar, educators will learn to enhance realism in simulated nursing scenarios while providing best practice techniques. The use of medical moulage assists the learner in “bridging the gap” between simulated training exercises and real life events. Whether you are just getting started in moulage or looking to advance your techniques, the application of moulage to support patient assessment, injury recognition, and decision making provides a unique training opportunity that enhances the simulation experience.

Objectives:
1. Identify the role of moulage in creating lifelike simulation scenarios
2. Illustrate the benefits of incorporating moulage into the simulation settings
3. Explore strategies to creating powerful learning experiences combining human patient simulators, live actors, and interactive, odorous, three dimensional wounds
4. Discuss options for working within your time and/or budgetary constraints

Fall-ing for Moulage!

Leaves are beginning to fall from the trees and cover the ground, the days are getting shorter and there is a definite “change” in the air. Fall is right around the corner, and with it comes the arrival of Halloween. Children and adults across the country are beginning to create elaborate scenes in their minds, setting the stage with appropriate apparel, gore, theatrical elements and changes to persona, all for the magic of creating an alter ego or “telling of the story.” Traditionally celebrated on the night of October 31, Halloween is most notably celebrated by children and young adults dressed up in carefully crafted costumes; conveying their meticulously calculated message, before perusing neighborhoods in search of candied sweets, costume parties, “haunted” houses, and other traditional autumn activities.

For most adults, this is a once a year activity, unless, of course, you are a simulation expert, to which this has now become your “typical” work day. Much in the same way the Halloween mad-hatter or Twilight star creates their persona, simulation experts weave scenarios or “short stories” that when successfully implemented will establish story-lines, settings, approximation of time and events, and an overall “sense-of- feel” that will carry the participant though pre-determined objectives and goals.

As with all distinguished Halloween costumes, creating a realistic simulation scenario requires careful forethought to detail, theatrics, role playing and most importantly time; something most simulation experts will share with your they run short on. However Moulage, just as simulation was but a few years ago, has moved off the back burner and into the mainstream, becoming the standard in simulation scenario; and as any participant will attest to, simulations that lack these important sensory clues, fall tremendously short of telling the entire story.
