Upcoming September ‘TeamSTEPPS Trainer Essentials Plus’ Courses by Dr. Timothy Clapper at PA Global Institute for Sim Training

teamstepps

Word today is about an upcoming September 4th early-bird deadline to participate in Dr. Timothy Clapper’s Upcoming September/October TeamSTEPPS Trainer Essentials Plus courses. Dr. Clapper was the SimGHOSTS 2013 USA keynote speaker where he spoke on the ability for TeamSTEPPS to be utilized not only for healthcare to healthcare discussions, but also for healthcare to simulation staff conversations. It’s a communication tool set that enhances performance and patient safety.

Read our other simulation TeamSTEPPS articles by with Dr. Timothy Clapper:

Poor communication and teamwork can lead to under-performing clinical teams and errors that disrupt even the best patient safety initiatives. TeamSTEPPS can make a difference for organizations, but only if the organizations and clinicians understand, adopt, and apply the four competencies (Clapper & Ng, 2012).

Course Overview: This course trains teams in the essential skills needed to function as team members and leaders. This is the only master training course that includes the use of simulation and assists the learner with developing an implementation plan.

Course: “TeamSTEPPS Trainer Essentials Plus”
Course DatesSep. 21-23, 2015 or Sep. 30-Oct 2, 2015
Course Provided By: Global Institute for Simulation Training
Location: Simulation Training Center at Education Management Solutions, Exton, PA
Instructor: Timothy Clapper, PhD

Timothy Clapper, PhD

Dr. Clapper is one of four American College of Surgeons Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) Educators in the world. As a TeamSTEPPS® Master Trainer, he has improved the teamwork skills and clinical practice of inter-professional teams at numerous healthcare facilities in the US and abroad. Using TeamSTEPPS® and his Saturation in Training theory (Clapper & Ng, 2012), he has improved the culture and practice of entire departments and reduced clinical errors.

Course Objectives:

  1. Use TeamSTEPPS communication tools to improve team communication and increase patient safety
  2. Use effective patient handoff techniques to enhance information exchange during transitions in care
  3. Identify barriers to teamwork and use strategies to overcome them
  4. Participants will receive an implementation guide – it is a core value to the course. They will not have to develop it. They will receive the implementation guide, and the course content will include training on how to tailor the plan for their own institute, including training cross-departmental teams.
  5. Participate in simulation to reinforce learning

Here’s what participants say:

“I had previously taken a TeamSTEPPS®workshop, but came back feeling like I had tools, but could not get “buy in” to use them. I was also unsure of how to fit it into our program. After attending this educational program, I am armed with both education, the means to carry it out, AND a plan! The plan will help us to move the process forward”

“I enjoyed the combination of information along with how to use it and implement it; the interaction among the group as led by [Dr. Clapper] and the various modes of education (lecture, video, sim) fully engaged me and kept my attention.”

Seating is limited to a maximum of 20 participants for each workshop.
Early registration rate is available until September 4.
Institutions are encouraged to send a team of three (physicians/nurses) from each department to facilitate effective implementation.

‘Fundamentals of AV Workshop’ Pre-Con at IPSSW 2015 May 3rd in Vacouver

medical simulation a/v systems

Looking to learn how integrate audiovisual systems and processes into your healthcare simulation program? Are you new to the technology, production techniques, or lab design? Join myself and other SimGHOSTS leadership for our comprehensive “Fundamentals of A/V” pre-conference workshop at the International Pediatric Society Symposium and Workshop May 3rd in beautiful Vancouver Canada!ipssw 2015

In this workshop SimGHOSTS Founder and Executive Director Lance Baily teams up with SimGHOSTS Event Director Ryan Eling and SimGHOSTS Vice President Ferooz Sekandarpoor to cover the ins and outs of audiovisual technology and its use in healthcare simulation. Drawing on their experiences in Hollywood, higher education media technology and simulation center design, this dynamic team will use hands on demonstrations and activities to explore the many factors when choosing, installing and operating the latest in audiovisual technology. The workshop will cover four major topics: components to an A/V system, overview of major simulation A/V platforms, simulation A/V design concepts and the basics of shooting video.

Simulation centers use audiovisual technology to record and stream video content; This requires many technological components which are often locked behind cabinets and in closets. In the first third of this workshop, the doors will be pulled wide open as we look at cameras, mixers, cables, speakers and more. Get your hands on many pieces of hardware and learn how equipment from multiple manufacturers work together to create an audiovisual recording system.

In order to have a successful simulation program, a center must have a robust and reliable audiovisual streaming and recording system. These A/V systems are a significant investment, so how does a simulation center staff select the appropriate solution to handle their needs? How do you seamlessly integrate this critical technology into your center? What other technological systems must be considered when designing the A/V system for a simulation center? Discussion will cover the types of simulation labs (OR Type, ICU type and Ward type, Skills lab), proper layout/standard layout, Audio Video infrastructure, IT requirements and incorporating telemedicine. The audience will learn the tips and techniques that are required to design or retrofit their simulation spaces.

For the final section of the workshop, the presenters will discuss the basics of video and audio recording, including cinematography and other Hollywood techniques. Participants will then divide into small groups and have the opportunity to film short movies. A final discussion will cover video editing and how simple, free or cheap software can allow simulation centers to create their own training and orientation videos.

Target Audience

Professionals working in simulation who utilize audio or video equipment to stream, transmit or record simulation exercises.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the required and optional components to an A/V capture system
  • Compare and contrast the types of A/V system designs suitable for simulation
  • Demonstrate proper video and audio recording techniques
  • Describe the challenges and opportunities unique to A/V solutions in simulation
  • Assess your own center’s A/V system(s) flexibility, capability, and usability.
