Adaptive Policy Modifications for Simulation Centers

 

Presenters

Christine Park, MD, Director SAIL

Bob Kiser, CHSE, CEC Associate Director SAIL

Session Objectives

  • Discuss policy challenges facing simulation center leaders doing business not-as-usual during the COVID19 pandemic
  • Examine guidelines, operating and ethical considerations affecting decisions and recommendations

Description

The current pandemic is creating stress on systems requiring out-of-box thinking and perhaps even heroic measures. At the same time, “heroes are not people who take unnecessary risks. They are people who respond intelligently to a challenge, assessing the likelihood of hazards and benefits, and making a judgement about which chances are worth taking” (Appiah, NYT Magazine, March 30, 2020).  This session will discuss what guidelines, operating and ethical principles may be considered in making COVID19-related policy decisions in simulation centers.

Topics include

  • Lending simulation equipment for real patient use
  • Use of your simulation center as back-up clinical space
  • Staff safety: Essential personnel and in-situ simulation

Tanja Barac, Simulation Technology Coordinator SAIL

Angelo Dindia, Simulation Technology Coordinator SAIL

James Haukland, Simulation Technology Coordinator SAIL

Christine Park, Director SAIL

Session Objectives

  • Production and delivery of Technology Based Simulation in a tele-sim environment.
  • Utilize and integrate Zoom logistics to facilitate Technology Based Simulation.
  • Provide appropriate orientation to staff, faculty, and learners.

Description

UIC’s SAIL Institute regularly runs monthly and weekly clerkship workshops for departments like Anesthesiology, Pediatrics, and Emergency Medicine. SAIL’s technology based coordinators have recently facilitated a month’s worth of clerkships in a week. They are here now to host a 2-part webinar to show fellow Simulationists how to facilitate effective technology-based simulations.

Topics include

  • Day 1: SAIL’s easy “how to” efficiently use Zoom and a virtual simulator to facilitate a scenario. Utilize and manage breakout rooms, screen sharing, chat, and green-screen features. What to consider when building your dream team.
  • Day 2: Sim Ops training including maintaining fidelity in a virtual setting and troubleshooting technical/connection difficulties. Orienting faculty and participants. Creating instructions and expectations for participants.

Lynda Shadrake, SP Coordinator SAIL

Alba Wooldard, SP Coordinator SAIL

Session Objectives

  • Determine skills in effectively auditioning SPs in a telesim environment
  • Utilize and integrate Zoom logistics to facilitate an SP audition

Description

As we all know, “the show must go on!” UIC’s SAIL Institute recently facilitated previously scheduled SP auditions via Zoom. The SAIL team wanted to share with the community yet another way to use SP telesim experiences in the age of COVID 19.

Topics include

  • Using Zoom to facilitate the auditions including utilizing the “holding room,” managing and reassigning breakout rooms, communication with individual breakout rooms and other Zoom information
  • Other items to consider when moving from in-person auditions to online

Effective Rapport-building Through the Barrier of Virtual Conversations

Presenters

Christine Park, MD, Director SAIL

Bob Kiser, CHSE, CEC Associate Director SAIL

Alba Woolard, SP Coordinator SAIL

Laura McKenzie, Assistant Director SAIL

Raina Long, SP Coordinator SAIL

Lynda Shadrake, SP Coordinator SAIL

Session Objectives

  • Identify barriers to effective communication through virtual conversations
  • Discuss how our physical selves and surroundings can affect our daily conversations
  • Practice techniques to support meaningful, authentic conversations via video conferencing

Description

Are you frustrated by wanting to connect more with those you are teleconferencing with but not sure how? Are you confident in your teleconferencing presence? If video communication isn’t your natural state this workshop is for you! The same principles can be applied for SPs, learners and clinicians, too!

Topics include

  • Exercises to bring awareness to your face, body, and voice
  • Exercises for more clearly expressing yourself through video conferencing

Jane L. Miller, PhD, University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine

Session Objectives

  • Explore how an educational emergency management framework can help with assessing where one is in a crisis and think about planning for the future
  • Discuss some of the challenges and opportunities facing simulation professionals and centers in preparing for a post-pandemic reconstruction

Description

The COID-19 pandemic has resulted in enormous disruption in a way that “business as usual” is an impossibility in practically every aspect of society, including healthcare education. Though most if not all of the immediate efforts had to be focused on short-term reactions, management and planning for the disruptions will continue for a long time to come. This session will discuss a framework and model for understanding the landscape of these challenges, and, with an eye to the horizon, begin to explore possibilities for a way forward.

Topics include

  • How are you maintaining situational assessment?
  • What are issues facing staff safety, capacity and capability?
  • What systematic changes might be needed to meet demand, and how much ongoing “damage control” is required?

Established in 1987, the Simulation and Integrative Learning Institute (SAIL) was one of the first standardized patient-based clinical performance assessment centers in the world. For 29 years, we have facilitated technology-based and human-based simulation experiences for thousands of healthcare students and professionals. With patient safety as one of our driving motivators, we work to design simulation for the development of comprehensive healthcare professionals. Aligning with the UI College of Medicine’s mission to uplift the health of our community, our vision is to develop patient-partnered simulation strategies for the entire healthcare community of practice, including patients, families, and more.
