SimGHOSTS 2016 Australia Day 2 Starts with Exploration of NASA Influences

simghosts-2016-australia

Today was Day 2 of the 3rd annual SimGHOSTS technology training event in Melbourne at the Australian Catholic University. Yesterday we heard from two plenary speakers, with the keynote address sponsored by Laerdal Medical:

About Laerdal Sponsored Keynote Speaker Lance Baily

Lance is an innovator and thought leader in the world of healthcare simulation. Using his background in digital media production and EMS fire fighting, as well as his work as a Simulation Technology Specialist, Lance founded several of the world’s leading websites, organizations, and events in the field of healthcare simulation. Lance also served as the inaugural Director of the Nevada System of Higher Education’s massive multi-institutional Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas. Desiring to make a global impact, Lance founded what has become the world’s most-read medical simulation resource website: HealthySimulation.com. Never satisfied with the status quo, Lance went on to create SimGHOSTS.org, a non-profit organization that supports professionals in the healthcare simulation industry through hands-on training events, online resources, and professional development. Because of overwhelming global demand, SimGHOSTS now operates four annual events, including ones in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United Arab Emirates. SimGHOSTS has also forged successful affiliations with simulation organizations all over the world, including SSH, ASPE, ASPiH, Simulation Australia, and IPSS.

In a drive to create excellence, SimGHOSTS has recently partnered with INACSL to develop a new professional competency standard for the position of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist. Lance continues to be a change-maker and innovator in the field of healthcare simulation. All of his projects and efforts are based on a core belief: that emerging technology can create community and empower people to solve bigger problems faster.

Keynote Presentation “To Boldly Go”

In his best selling book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell examines the factors that contribute to high levels of success. Gladwell considers why the majority of Canadian ice hockey players are born in the first few months of the year, how Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates achieved his extreme wealth, and why the Beatles became one of the most successful musical acts in human history.

Throughout his book, Gladwell theorizes how historical and cultural circumstances can pave the way for such phenomenal success. What can the healthcare simulation industry learn from a similar of exploration of its own past, present, and future? Simulation Evangelist Lance Baily has applied Gladwell’s theories to our industry and will explain why his projects, including HealthySimulation.com and SimGHOSTS.org, have made such huge global impacts in just five short years. By understanding the core truths behind the success of these projects, participants will take away valuable arguments they can use to advocate for the expanded use of simulation in their own home institutions. Finally, Lance will explore how the historical and cultural forces that are now in motion will transform healthcare simulation as we know it from a small community of early-adopters to a universal standard embraced by all.

Day 1 Afternoon Plenary

Stephen Guinea is the Coordinator of Health Simulation for the Faculty of Health Sciences at Australian Catholic University (ACU). Within this role, Stephen has driven the strategic direction of health simulation at ACU focusing on simulation learning environments, staff capacity and capability and curriculum integration with the purpose of a quality student (and staff) experience of simulation. Stephen’s research interests include simulation design for authentic learning, clinical skills development and integrating theories of workplace learning into university curriculum. Stephen has received three learning and teaching awards including a 2013 Office for Learning and Teaching Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning. Stephen’s PhD research focused on designing sociocultural simulation for international nursing students as preparation for the clinical placement.

One of the greatest challenges facing health simulation programs is meeting the needs of the various stakeholders in a sustainable way. A significant part of this challenge is understanding the various needs and expectations, creating and communicating a vision, and enacting the vision in a way that is sustainable. The Faculty of Health Sciences at Australian Catholic University (ACU) has taken a strategic approach to the advancement of health simulation in terms of building facilities, capacity and capability of simulation technical services, education and training, curriculum integration and research. The success of such an approach is dependent on communication and relationships.

In this session, Stephen discussed that whilst very large student numbers, limited numbers of simulation technicians and an increasingly sessionalised academic workforce present particular challenges to advancing a simulation agenda for 13 health disciplines across 6 campuses, significant opportunities exist. The rapid advancement of simulation and simulation related technologies and a clear and consistent vision of simulation as a learning and teaching method shared by all stakeholders allows for thinking about how to “do” simulation in a way that meets these challenges. This session described the ongoing approach to building a sustainable simulation program at ACU and the essential contribution simulation technicians make to such success.

Day 2 Morning Plenary

This morning, Dr. Sprick gave us a deeper dive historical exploration of healthcare simulation, connecting the various industries that have contributed to our own.

Dr. Cyle Sprick is the Director of the Clinical Simulation Unit in the School of Medicine at Flinders University in South Australia. Dr Sprick has a PhD in Biomedical Engineering with a focus on clinical simulation. Clinically, Dr Sprick has been a practicing Paramedic since 1996, first in Texas, and then in Adelaide from 2000. Sitting at the nexus of clinical practice, education and biomedical engineering, Dr Sprick brings a unique perspective to clinical simulation. Before moving to Australia in 2000, Cyle worked for Oceaneering Space Systems (a NASA contractor) designing and building cryogenic (liquid air) based life support systems for underwater astronaut training, firefighters, and haz-mat workers. He also worked on the design of a liquid oxygen based life support system for the Mars mission space suit, and various robotic projects.

Augmented patients are an amalgamation of manikins, simulated patients (actors) and task trainers to provide the best of all three when simulating the deteriorating patient. Dr Cyle Sprick from Flinders University in Adelaide has been developing this style of simulation for over a decade. Dr Sprick discussed some of the work of the giants on who’s shoulders we stand as well as some of the new technological developments that are enabling this modality.

SimGHOSTS Australia 2015 Launches at Clinical Skills Development Service

simghosts australia 2015

Today in Brisbane Australia over 100 simulation champions from around the world came together at the Clinical Skills Development Service for the 2nd annual “Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists”, aka SimGHOSTS. This was the 6th international event put on by the organization which also has meetings in the United Kingdom (co-hosted by ASPiH), the United States (hosted at Cedars-Sinai) and Dubai (supported by Simulead).

CSDS Director Dylan Campher opened the show with an introduction to Elwyn Hellway provided the “Welcome to Country” of the Gubby way, an official ceremony sharing the ancestry and aboriginal people of Australia. Dylan then returned to start the show. A team of clinical professionals took the stage with a Simman during a cardiac arrest – a very tense simulation moment — unfortunately the patient didn’t survive the simulation — which unbelievably brought on a GHOST! On the screen behind the stage was a projected Ghost which brought the call for “Ghost Busters”. Being Australia, Crocidile Dundee showed up to help call for the Ghost Busters — and together they captured the Ghost!

Event Director Ryan Eling thanked Platinum Sponsor Laerdal Medical for their sponsorship of the keynote address by Dr. Caroyln Yucha and the opening reception. He also thanked CAE Healthcare & Mediquip who sponsored tomorrow’s Plenary Address. He also recognized Limbs & Things, Trauma Sim, and Simulation Australia.

After morning announcements Ryan brought up Laerdal Queensland Territory Sales Manager Lucas Tomczak who spoke to the support of the company of organizations and communities like SimGHOSTS, stating that their mission of “helping save lives” was not just a catch phrase – but an earnest passion shared by their global team-members. Lucas introduced Dr. Carolyn Yucha, Dean of Nursing & Allied Health of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The school was apart of the Nevada System of Higher Education, which also connected Nevada State College and the University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine — all of whom collaborated on the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas (CSCLV). SimGHOSTS founder Lance Baily began the organization and annual events at the CSCLV in 2011 when he was the Director of the center.

Dr. Yucha spoke on how to Negotiate to create an effective and efficient student learning environment, described the different roles and training needs for simulation staff, and discussed, and strategies for sim champs to communicate their needs.

Today opens three days of hands-on training and community networking for those who operate Simulation Technology across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region. Registered attendees were also provided complimentary subscription to SimGHOSTS.org which will connect Sim Techs from the four global events from around the world.
