Dan Raemer and Janice Palaganas will be presenting the closing keynote speech at the Spring Simulation User Network (SUN) Conference in San Diego, California. The SUN Conference takes place from April 18 through April 20. Dan and Janice’s presentation is entitled, “Dueling Synapses: Dilemmas in Simulation-Enhanced Interprofessional Education.”

 

If you enjoy the dynamic duo of Dr. Raemer and Dr. Palaganas, be on the lookout for their coming podcast, DJ Simulationistas… ‘sup?, which will be available on the CMS Virtual Campus as well as iTunes and wherever podcasts are found.01_DJSim

In addition to their keynote, Dan, Janice, Roy Phitayakorn, and Denise Gee will also present the Interprofessional Debriefing Workshop at the Association for Surgical Education (ASE) 2017 Surgical Education. This event is the annual meeting of the Association for Surgical Education, and takes place from April 18 to April 22 in San Diego, California.

The Center for Medical Simulation congratulates the many CMS faculty, board members, graduates, and friends who were appointed as inaugural fellows of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare’s SSH Academy.

CMS team members in the first group of fellows include Chief Curiosity Officer Dan Raemer, Director of Educational Innovation & Development Janice Palaganas, faculty member Walter Eppich, Executive Director Emeritus Jeff Cooper, and Board of Trustees member James Gordon.

CMS is proud to be represented in the SSH Academy by so many members of our faculty and leadership team, and looks forward to seeing them formally inducted at the International Meeting for Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) in Orlando, in January 2017.

Janice Palaganas to Deliver Debra Spunt Lecture at NLN Education Summit

Janice Palaganas SimhealthThe Center for Medical Simulation is pleased to announce that Janice Palaganas, PhD, RN, will be delivering the Debra Spunt Lecture at the National League for Nursing Education Summit on Friday, September 23, 2016.

The National League for Nursing (NLN) Education Summit takes place this year in Orlando, Florida from September 21st to September 23rd, 2016. The summit facilitates nurse educators from across the world to meet and discuss service, collaboration, research, best practices, and professional growth.

Janice Palaganas serves as the Director of Educational Innovation and Development at CMS. In her lecture, “Know Bounds to Know No Bounds,” Janice will discuss simulation as a platform for interprofessional education. She will explore how clinical care is brought to life via simulation, and how these simulations help bring to the surface hidden assumptions and thought processes which members of different professions hold. Simulations, along with debriefings, allow us to develop common ground and new appreciation for the contributions of each profession to patient care.

Janice will show how simulation can expand professional boundaries and create powerful organizational change. She will bring simulation to life with cutting-edge research, real clinical examples, and interactive audience exercises.

CMS Welcomes Janice Palaganas To Its Team!

The Center for Medical Simulation welcomes Janice Palaganas, PhDc, RN, MSN, CRNP, CEN as its newest Faculty member. Prior to joining CMS, Janice was the implementing Director of Accreditation and Certification for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare and continues as a member of the Board of Review for the Council for Accreditation of Healthcare Programs.  She was previously the Chief Operations Officer and Director for Research & Development for the Medical Simulation Center at Loma Linda University.  Janice has experience as faculty for schools of nursing, public health, MBA programs, emergency medicine and medicine.  She received her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing, as well as two Masters degrees as an Adult Nurse Practitioner and Geriatric Nurse Practitioner; and one Masters certificate in Home Health Management from the University of Pennsylvania.  She is currently completing her PhD in Nursing at Loma Linda University exploring healthcare simulation as a platform for interprofessional education (IPE).  Since 2008, Janice has been involved nationally and internationally researching healthcare simulation for interprofessional education and was the Meeting Chair of the 2012 Healthcare Simulation and Interprofessional Education Symposium in San Diego, CA, participating in the Invitational Meeting that brought together 22 major healthcare professional organizations to come to consensus on how healthcare simulation can be a vehicle for IPE.

Janice has extensive Emergency Department experience at multiple facilities ranging from level I trauma centers, community hospitals, and fast tracks as an Emergency Nurse, Fast Track Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Educator, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Trauma Nurse Practitioner, Manager, and Director for Emergency and Critical Care Services, as well as Legal Nurse Consultant and House Supervisor.  She has presented at conferences regarding projects in simulation and on behalf of the Council for Accreditation of Healthcare Simulation Programs.  She has been an invited keynote speaker nationally and internationally to discuss simulation, patient safety, and/or accreditation. Amongst other leadership roles, she is Chair of the Interprofessional Education Affinity Group and a member of the Certification Committee and Technology & Standards Committee in the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, as well as an author for the National League for Nursing’s (NLN) study on high-stakes assessment using simulation for nursing students.  From her work with the NLN and SSH Accreditation, Janice has a particular interest in video assessment tool development.  She is also lead editor for the upcoming textbook, “Defining Excellence in Simulation Programs.”

On a more personal note, Janice enjoys anything that comes out of her kids’ mouths, photography, digital art, charcoal and acrylic art, and dance.  She is a techie at heart. She is also a classically trained pianist and (in a former life) was a dancer, choreographer and hip-hop instructor.

Please join all of us here at CMS in welcoming Janice to our team!
