CMS Faculty Lead Four Courses at Australian Affiliates

IMG_0597C5uWm3WUsAEcpWH

 

Center for Medical Simulation faculty, including Jenny Rudolph, Demian Szyld, Mary Fey, Walter Eppich, Julian van Dijk, Kate Morse, and Robert Simon trekked to Australia in February to help lead four sessions of CMS’ Simulation as a Teaching Tool courses.

Two courses took place at the Western Centre for Medical Education in Melbourne/St. Alban’s, Victoria, from February 14th to 17th and February 21st to 24th. Two took place at Mater Education in Brisbane, Queensland, from February 21st to 24th and from February 28th to March 3rd.

The Simulation as a Teaching Tool Simulation Instructor Workshop immerses healthcare simulation leaders and instructors in an inter-professional learning environment where participants learn to teach clinical, behavioral, and cognitive skills through simulation. This course draws from simulation-based pedagogy in field ranging from aviation to healthcare, psychology, experiential learning, and organizational behavior. Participants explore teaching methods that are applicable across the healthcare education spectrum, from undergraduate and graduate medical education to the nursing and allied health domains.

The day to day practice of the Simulation as a Teaching Tool course varies and includes simulation scenarios, lectures, small and large group discussions, and practical exercised on feedback and debriefing. The course also includes professional networking and events for sharing course and professional experiences.

Reflections on Two Months at CMS

Albert CollageAlbert Chan, MD, is an anesthesiologist and a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Medical Simulation.

“As I meandered down the hallways of the Center for Medical Simulation at the Navy Yard saying my final goodbyes, I could not help but marvel at the amazing intellectual journey the past nine weeks has taken me. Not only have I learned about the intricacies of medical simulation and education, I have gained completely new insights into myself.

When I first arrived at the CMS, it was a bit daunting as I did not know what to expect. I was at the very center of the simulation world, surrounded by experts in medical education. What will they think of me with my limited simulation experience? Will I be accepted by the staff and faculty? My concerns were alleviated in no time – in true CMS fashion, everyone embraced and welcomed me into the family and established the “safe container.” I was ready to become a learner once again.

There were many things that were impressive at the CMS – the flattened hierarchy, the openness of communication, the constant reflection and feedback to each other, the demand for improvement and excellence, the creativity of the sim techs (yes, Johnny Tsunami), the wealth of knowledge, the constant supply of soda (yes, it’s amazing). But if I had to pick one thing I learned the most from, it would undoubtedly be the Comprehensive Instructor Course.

I was fortunate enough to be both a participant in the course, as well as faculty observing from behind the scenes. I learned so much about the application of educational theories, the complexities of debriefing, and more about the adult learners’ mind. Not being a reflective person naturally, be it due to my culture or personality – the course has made me look within myself and explore my own psyche. I came to realize the frequent inferences and assumptions I have made about others in the past, and the effect it has had on communication and relationships. Being curious has taken on a whole new meaning.

The most remarkable thing was how the faculty and staff embodied the principles that they taught, and how the course was so carefully crafted and choreographed to center around the learners’ needs, and to build a strong sense of community among the participants. If I were to be a medical educator, that is exactly what I aspire to be.

“How can you just do simulation for such nine weeks? Doesn’t it get boring?” one of my good friends asked me. This notion did cross my mind before I came to CMS, but I was proven wrong. Medical simulation is not simply using mannequins to unnerve clinicians – it is an experiential and reflective process – as was my fellowship at the CMS. At the same time, I was able to personally witness the power of conversation – not only through practicing debriefing with good judgment in the courses, but also by talking to CMS faculty, staff, techs – I have truly expanded my horizons.

Harkening back to what Mary Fey said in the Instructor Courses, I have attained “threshold knowledge” – I cannot unlearn the knowledge I have acquired here. WTF forever means “What’s Their Frame?”, I shall always teach from a stance of curiosity, and assumptions is the mother of all [mistakes].

Thanks to all the faculty at the CMS who have given me the opportunity to join in the debriefings and provided me with valuable feedback, and thanks for sparing me some of their valuable time despite busy schedules to chat about my project – especially Jenny, Roxane, Jeff, Dan, Robert and Kate. And thanks to the awesome staff who hung out with me in the back all the time and have taught me so much – Johnny, Tony, Jenn, Matt, Emily and fellow visiting scholars! Hopefully we can maintain our relationships in the years to come!

Most importantly, have to thank my dear wife Christina for supporting me on this trip and helping me take care of the babies while I am at CMS! I know it must have been tough!

Looking up at the wall of the back debriefing room one last time as I walked out, “The Basic Assumption” has taken a completely different importance and meaning from nine weeks ago, and I hope that I can bring all that I have learned back home.”

Center for Medical Simulation Nurse Educator Scholarships Awarded

CMSScreen Shot 2016-11-21 at 9.09.54 AM

The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) and the MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP) are pleased to announce that our CMS Nurse Educator Scholarships have been awarded for our 2016 and 2017 Comprehensive Instructor Workshops.

These ten $2500 partial tuition scholarships were made available through the generosity of an anonymous nurse donor who seeks to improve the ways that simulation is used in nursing education.

The scholarships were awarded to five teams of two nursing educators from healthcare organizations and education programs using or seeking to use simulation in their nurse training curricula.

The winners of the ten scholarships for 2016 and 2017 are:

  • Lori Mooney and Ann Felauer from the University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore, Maryland.
  • Helen Catena and Jenny Chatfield from the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Alberta, Canada.
  • Joanne Dunderdale and Carol Kostovich from the Loyola University Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing in Chicago, Illinois.

The Center for Medical Simulation is pleased to announce that both Jenny Rudolph, Executive Director of CMS, and Mary Fey, Associate Director of the Institute for Medical Simulation at CMS, will speak at the California Simulation Alliance’s second annual conference on October 15th, 2016, at the University of San Francisco.

Jenny and Mary will facilitate a special pre-conference debriefing workshop on the topic of Debriefing with Good Judgement©, on October 14th, 2016, with an introductory online webinar which took place on October 4th, 2016.

The theme of this year’s annual conference is “Making an Impact on Healthcare Education: Bridging the Gap Using Simulation.” Jenny Rudolph will deliver the keynote address at the conference, on the topic, “Creating a Transformational Learning Environment: High Standards and High Regard in Healthcare Simulation.” This interactive keynote speech will explore how to link holding learners to high standards while also holding them in high regard, as the basis for learning in simulation. Some debriefers are “nice” and withhold judgement to protect the learner, while others “tell it like it is” and demoralize the learner. Jenny will discuss how debriefers can do both these things simultaneously in a way that feels fair and fun.

 Mary Fey will also deliver a talk discussing the effects of the recent National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) study on the use of simulation in nursing curricula. She will introduce the findings of the study, which showed that a certain percentage of contact hours for nursing students could be successfully and effectively replaced with simulation. She will also show nursing educators how to integrate simulation into their curricula, given the new NCSBN guidelines.

The California Simulation Alliance (CSA) is a program of HealthImpact. CSA’s purpose is to develop simulation education in the state of California for registered nurses and healthcare professionals. For more information, visit www.californiasimulationalliance.org.

He publishes, presents and teaches widely in the field of simulation including at international meetings in Chile, New Zealand, Canada, England, the USA, and Mexico.

Demian represents a new generation of clinical educators with formal training in simulation-based education. Mentored by Chuck Pozner, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of the STRATUS Simulation Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, he was in the avant garde as the first simulation fellow at STRATUS. During that time, he pursued a Master’s in Education with a focus on Technology, Innovation and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. This focus on technology-enhanced learning will serve him well as he and Mary Fey work with Janice Palaganas, PhD, RN, NP and Roxane Gardner, MD, PhD, MHPE to connect the CMS high-touch in-person learning model to our online collective learning initiative known as the Interprofessional Community of Practice (iCoP), funded by a two year grant from the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation.

Center for Medical Simulation Offers Nurse Educator Scholarships

Nurse Educator Scholarship Opportunity
“Fostering Great Nurses Through Great Teaching”

The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) and the MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP) are pleased to announce the “Center for Medical Simulation Nurse Educator Scholarship” a newly funded opportunity for ten, partial tuition scholarships for nurse educators who wish to attend simulation instructor training at CMS in Boston.

The Institute for Medical Simulation (IMS), the simulation instructor training program of CMS, has been conducting workshops since 2004. These scholarships are available for the interprofessional course known as the Comprehensive Instructor Workshop held at CMS in Boston and are aimed at improving the skills of simulation educators.

Ten, $2,500 partial tuition scholarships are being made available through the generosity of an anonymous nurse donor who seeks to improve the ways that simulation is used in nursing education. This interest is prompted in part by the increasing importance of interprofessional education and mounting evidence of the usefulness of simulation as an effective teaching tool in nursing education. Scholarships are available to five teams of two nursing educators from healthcare organizations or education programs using, or seeking to use, simulation in their curricula for training nurses at any level of experience.

The Center for Medical Simulation and the MGH Institute of Health Professions are both 501(c)3, nonprofit educational, charitable foundations.

Scholarship Criteria:

  • Scholarships will be awarded to five teams, each one consisting of two registered nurses from the same institution, BS minimum—MS or higher preferred. If a team receives final acceptance, each nurse on the team will be offered a $2,500 partial scholarship.
  • At least one of each team’s two nurse applicants must have some leadership responsibility in their organization. The goal is for the team to be able to move simulation education forward in their organization. One member of the team might be a mentor of the other or they might be peers.
  • Both applicants on a team must meet all criteria as listed in the application instructions for attending an IMS Comprehensive Instructor Workshop.
  • To apply for a partial tuition scholarship, both members of each team should apply for the same IMS Comprehensive Instructor Workshop from the list of published workshop dates held at CMS in Boston.
  • After submitting your application online, provide the following documents via email to CMS-IHP-Scholarship@harvardmedsim.org:
    • A letter describing your team’s project as well as the role each of you will play in it.

Scholarships Available For Nurses To Attend CMS’ Simulation Instructor Workshops

CMSIHP

The Center for Medical Simulation (CMS) and the MGH Institute of Health Professions (IHP) are pleased to announce a newly funded opportunity for eight, partial tuition scholarships for nurses who wish to attend simulation instructor training at CMS in Boston. These partial scholarships are available for CMS’ basic interprofessional  Simulation Instructor Program, the Comprehensive Instructor Workshop, aimed at improving the skills of simulation educators.

Eight, $2,500 partial tuition scholarships (full tuition is $4,875) are being made available through the generosity of an anonymous nurse donor who seeks to improve the ways that simulation is used in nursing education. This interest is prompted in part by the increasing importance of interprofessional education and mounting evidence of the usefulness of simulation as an effective teaching tool in nursing education. Scholarships are available to four teams of nursing educators from healthcare organizations or education programs using, or seeking to use, simulation in their curricula for training nurses at any level of experience.
