Purpose Statement

The face to face Simulation Instructor Training – Basic (SIT-B) will help nursing education programs, hospitals, and any general healthcare setting address the gap in developing and maintaining well qualified clinicians who can facilitate healthcare training using simulation at their facility. The use of simulation accelerates the learning process, mitigates patient safety concerns, fosters a culture of learning among employees, and directly returns an investment on system redesign. In short research studies have repeatedly shown that clinicians who participate in healthcare training using simulation have a higher confidence level in their skills.

Target Audience

This two day training targets novice/aspiring medical simulation educators across a variety of disciplines like physicians, nurses, educators, and associated health providers.

Outcome/Objectives

This course combines didactic, small group, and hands-on simulation activities so participants can develop the skills necessary to design, develop, implement, and debrief simulation-based healthcare training. Specific objectives include:

  • Demonstrate comprehension of simulation models by selecting the best simulation modality based on training objectives;
  • Demonstrate exercises with simulation mannequins;
  • Demonstrate a metacognitive knowledge of the context in which the exercises are used as an instructional method;
  • Describe the context in which standardized patients are used as an instructional method;
  • Explain the implementation of innovative techniques using simulation;
  • Identify the context for using simulation scenarios; and
  • Demonstrate debriefing and constructive communication skills in didactic sessions and applied exercises.

Specific Expectations after Attending

To attend the training, the participant agrees to the below or the training will never benefit the learner and their sponsoring organization.

  • Sponsoring Organization’s agrees to provide the participant protected time to implement training content;
  • Attend and participate in 100% of program activity as evidenced by producing a Certificate of Completion;
  • Participate in a follow up web meeting to report back into the training cohort the learner’s successes and challenges;
  • Coordinate with the facility leadership or simulation coordinator to plan, lead, and debrief at least one simulated event every during the year following this training;
  • Use needs assessment data to plan and develop new simulation events;
  • Abide by your facility’s simulation policies and procedures and/or develop simulation policy and procedures

The most successful clinical simulation program is never about its equipment, a successful program invests in people who can run the equipment.

Mock Code BLS is a simulation event conducted in any healthcare setting which focuses on the BLS actions in a cardiac arrest response. Plus it only takes 15 minutes and is extremely well received by front line staff! Mock Code BLS simulations help participants polish their response assessment while becoming comfortable with:BLS Mock Code Highlights

  • Calling for help
  • Getting the code cart
  • Setting up a BLS CPR leadership system

Purpose Statement

Our Code Team Curriculum's purpose is to support and enhance your code team’s processes and incorporate the continual changes found in resuscitation science and facility specific mock code process improvement findings. Additionally the Code Team Training will also provide your facility with a code team member verification pathway which is commonly found in high stakes, high reliability industries like aviation. In short to be a member of the code team each member must attend and successfully meet basic expectations.AHA QCI Cycle From AHA Circulation Journal

Supporting Evidence

The American Heart Association’s 2014 CPR Consensus Statement expresses that a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) process is highly encouraged in all healthcare settings. Additionally our many informal needs assessments from across many healthcare settings and classes, published Root Cause Analyses (RCAs), published patient safety reports, education departments, and facility CPR Committees consistently define the following ongoing gaps exist within the many code teams:

  • Poor Intraprofessional team dynamics during codes as evidenced by
    • Lack of professional assertiveness in team leadership
    • Lack of designated leadership
    • Lack of establishing roles
    • Lack of knowing the environment
    • Lack of using cognitive aids
  • Lack of professional assertiveness in team leadership
  • Lack of designated leadership
  • Lack of establishing roles
  • Lack of knowing the environment
  • Lack of using cognitive aids

Our Code Team Training will enable your staff members to have the opportunity to learn existing and new response procedures, repeat events to gain confidence, identify and correct mistakes, refine skills, foster teamwork and improve clinical outcomes during a resuscitation training event.
