HealthySimulation.com is dedicated to providing free resources to healthcare educators considering or utilizing simulation to educate and train professional providers. Here is a list of our most-read medical simulation articles from the first half of 2013:

  1. Video Update from Laerdal SUN Indianapolis 2013 – The April 2013 Laerdal SUN Indianapolis meeting held its opening ceremonies yesterday providing over 230 Simulation Champions from around the World with the training they need to start or expand their healthcare simulation program. Learn more about Medical Simulation by watching this event video recap.
    .
  2. Collaborative Simulation Program Development Session Provided with FREE HealthySim Subscription – Gain access to a 2-Hour HD recorded stream from the HealthySimAdmin event which covers collaborative program development across disciplines and institutions by subscribing to HealthySimulation.com’s free monthly newsletter, summarizing all the best articles straight to your email inbox!
    .
  3. HealthStream Provides Free WhitePaper “Right Time for Simulation” Are you associated with a hospital system looking to start or expand a medical simulation based program?  HealthStream just released a free white paper entitled “It’s the Right Place and Right Time for Simulation” on their blog which can help demonstrate the serious benefits of clinical simulation. You can also check out my comprehensive Demonstration of the HealthStream SimManager platform developed to administer simulation staff, equipment, rooms, learners and outcomes.
    .
  4. Learn How Simulation Has Been Fully Adopted & Integrated in both the Airline Industry and the Nuclear Power Industry – While medical simulation is rapidly expanding, the adoption of the methodology does not even begin to compare to the aviation or nuclear industries. Learn how simulation works in these sectors to better learn why simulation is the future of healthcare education.
    .
  5. Learn How to Identify Key Drivers for Simulation Training – Key drivers are “an effective tool for breaking down complex questions or improvement goals and structuring them into smaller, addressable pieces”. Learn more about this workshop and download free tools that can clarify simulation needs and appropriate intervention designs for simulation training.

  6. Increase Realism to Your Simulations Through Background Noise and Advanced Moulage Makeup Kits – By creating the most realistic simulation scenarios learners become fully immersed in the experiential educational experience. Small considerations for the design and display of your simulation lab can dramatically increase learner buy-in!
    .
  7. The Sim Tech Hands-On Training event ‘SimGHOSTS’ is Hosting their 3rd Annual Event this August – Join over 200 other Healthcare Simulation Technicians at the San Antonio College Nursing and Allied Health Complex this August 6th – 9th for the global healthcare simulation event designed to provide a meeting place for Technicians to exchange ideas and network with technical peers as well as receive specialized training in manikin hardware repair & software programming, audiovisual equipment debugging, IT infrastructures, moulage makeup, team communication & leadership techniques, medical physiology and much more.
    .
  8. Consider Why & How to Build a Website For Your Medical Simulation Program, and How to Add Multimedia to Increase Marketing to Community & External Businesses – Benefits of creating a Simulation Program Website include: Community public relations, recruitment advertising and promotional marketing, providing contact information and capturing donations, as well as hosting student, staff, clinical educator/faculty resources. In the second article, learn how to add multimedia to further support these objectives!
    .
  9. Designing Prehospital Medical Simulation Scenarios – This guest author paper outlines the four stages that should be considered by tutors before their students are exposed to clinical simulation scenarios for educational purposes. These stages of paramedic education are relatively unique since the teaching and understanding of logistical considerations are not necessarily a significant concern to other clinicians from wider health disciplines.
    .
  10. How To Evaluate Effectiveness of Medical Simulations – Learn why simulation scenario design requires ongoing review, how healthcare can make tiny improvements for continued success, and gain free evaluation tools from CAE Healthcare.

Summer “Best of” Re-Cap for Educators

Hey Sim Champs,

Here is a recap of all the best articles from this summer for those of you who were out of the office:

  • HealthySimAdmin.com launched, which is a broadcasted event to find administrative solutions for the “how-to” of medical simulation, that takes place Oct. 18th & 19th at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.  Join the studio audience or ask questions while streaming live from your office desktop!
  • TOM Man – Tactical Operations Medical Manikin Review (with video): I spent a day with TOM Man out in the 106 degree heat of the Las Vegas desert to learn about this affordable yet powerfully rugged military / trauma-based manikin.  If you are running trauma scenarios in austere environments this is a must-watch exclusive video!

Lastly, I have done an extensive review of voice-changing options for your medical simulation labs. Read this article to learn about my software and hardware recommendations to help dramatically increase realism in your scenarios through voice-modification!

HealthySimulation.com Website Update!

Hi Sim Champs! Good news – I have spent the last few weeks building some new features to HealthySimulation.com!

Laerdal METI manikin

First, the new navigation bar above will help you find your way through the variety of key pages located on the website.  For instance, selecting the “moulage” page under the “resources” tab will provide you with ALL the moulage related articles that have been shared over the years on HealthySimulation.com.  This drop-down menu will help you to browse through various categories of recent posts, from administration based articles to educator-based articles to product reviews and more!

Next, on the right you will see two new areas: Most Read Articles and Most Recent Posts.  Most Read Articles will help you see what the rest of the medical simulation community is learning about with this all-time “top ten” list of posts ever read.  Next, the Most Recent Articles section will quickly show you the titles of the 30 most recent posts on HealthySimulation.com – so that you can quickly catch up with topics you are specificically interested in.

Finally, we have integrated facebook into the website, allowing you to like, post and share articles with your facebook friends so that you can quickly help others gain the free knowledge and resources we post here on HealthySimulation.com!

Do you have an article or resource you would like to share with the medical simulation community? Email me and let me know!

Have a great week of Sim!
