Section: Cardiopulmonary Section
Session Code: CP-2A-8401
Date: Friday, February 17, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
Session Type: Educational Sessions
Session Level: Basic
Convinced that integrating patient simulation manikins into your program will enhance student preparedness for acute care and improve student (and patient) outcomes? Most of us are, but what if you are not affiliated with a school of medicine or school of nursing? The presenters will share lessons learned from independently establishing a 5-manikin simulation lab in a DPT program for less than $100,000. Topics will include steps and missteps in collaborative grant writing for interprofessional education (IPE), selecting simulator manikins, adapting existing facilities, navigating department politics, designing a DPT course in patient simulation, planning for curricular integration, and more. Students will share experiences applying and developing their clinical skills and judgment in a realistic environment, without imposed risks of life-threatening consequences to mistakes that are inevitable in the learning process. They will discuss and compare their simulation experiences with their acute and critical care clinical experiences.
1. Analyze simulator manikin and lab features in the context of programmatic objectives.
2. Identify internal and/or external funding sources for developing a patient simulation lab.
3. Identify barriers and opportunities for creating a patient simulation lab.
4. Develop a simulation program for integration within the curriculum.
