WS1 WORKSHOP: Leverage Simulation and Technology to Bridge the Gap Between Theory and Practice at the Point-of-Care

Monday, 13 July 2009: 8:00 AM-12:30 PM
Description/Overview: The ultimate challenge facing a complex, fast-paced health care system is to assure safety and quality for both those who give and receive care. This requires intentional efforts to transform practice at the point-of-care by bridging the gap between what is being taught in theory and what is being lived in the real world. This workshop will provide strategies to “bridge the gap” by using simulation and emerging technology, a powerful teaching methodology that reliably assists faculty, students and clinicians to develop clinical decision making and critical thinking skills. The strategies will focus on clinical scenarios that include integrated, interdisciplinary, evidence-based and cultural competencies essential for successful engagement in human patient simulation, debriefing and critiquing processes.
Learner Objective #1: Delineate the fundamental elements of a professional practice framework necessary to design simulation and technology strategies that will transform practice at the point of care.
Learner Objective #2: Identify strategies to teach professional concepts that prepare interdisciplinary, integrated and evidence-based teams at the point of care.
