This presentation was highly engaging, fast paced, and I mostly tweeted the first section of it.
- The needs assessment is an essential first step.
- Learning objectives are so important. Don’t have 10 – limit yourself to 2-3.
- The SET-M is a good tool to evaluate simulation activities.
They talked about the development and implementation of simulated scenarios in Timmins.
- They needed to get buy-in from partners and speak to the impact on patient outcomes
- There were several collaborators
- Do a needs assessment
- Assess the needs of learners and educators – support team members
- They made surveys and no one was doing them
- When they added a draw they got participants
- They also got some printed out and went to the huddle to get the data
- Do the survey on the way out of the simulation
- They posted cards with all the roles and data in the lunch room
- You need a confederate in the room – an embedded participant – to help guide the scenario and keep it moving along
- You can identify a lot of knowledge gaps when you do it in a clinical setting
- Debriefing is important – look up some scripts and use cognitive aids
- They have a sheet they can share with prompts
- Make yourself scripts
- Being a good debriefer is a skill
- Let people know what the sim man can do
See what you are doing now and what you can do moving forward.
- Designed in consultation with content experts and situationists
- Perform a needs assessment to establish foundational evidence
- Construct measurable objectives
- Align the modality with the objectives
- Design the scenario, case or activity that provides context
- Use various fidelity types
- Plan a learner-centered facilitative approach
- Create a prebriefing plan that includes preparation materials and briefing
- Create a debriefing of feedback session and/or a guided reflection exercise
- Develop a plan for evaluation
- Pilot test simulation-based experiences
