Integrating Inter-Professional Education and Team Training into Health Sciences Education – A Big Easy Story

Thursday 8th March 2018 14:00 GMT (UK)
Presented by John T Paige, MD, FACS

Inter-professional education (IPE) is taking on increasing importance at health sciences centers throughout the country in an effort to prepare better health professional students to be ready for the teamwork and coordinated care required in today’s dynamic care settings.  In fact, leading national organizations have recognized and emphasized the need of incorporating IPE into teaching, defining key competencies that all healthcare professionals should have.  Developing an IPE curriculum, however, presents a unique set of challenges that must be overcome.  This webinar aims to help educators and faculty interested in developing successful IPE programs within their institution through a discussion of the experiences and lessons learned of presenter building an IPE team training program at LSU Health New Orleans.

This webinar aims to help participants in building a successful IPE program through the lessons learned building an inter-professional team training program at LSU Health New Orleans Health Sciences Center.

Making the implicit explicit: Theories informing simulation-based education – Part 1

Presented by Debra Nestel, Gabriel Reedy & Peter Dieckmann

Theories inform educational practices in different ways. In these two webinars we will share our experiences with different theories in simulation-based education.  We will present our notion of theory as a framework of ideas that are derived from, and resonate with educators’ worldviews.

The following theories and their application in simulation will be highlighted: Cognitive-based theories in designing simulations, Cultural-Historical Activity Theory in debriefing practices, ‘normative theory’ and its value in orienting educators to cultivate a disposition for learning, fidelity as a sensitizing concept in simulation design and practice and finally critical theory as a lens for simulation-based education design and implementation.

Aim: To examine the value of different theoretical perspectives on simulation design and application and to broaden our understanding about the educational foundations that support simulation as a robust educational methodology.

Who: The sessions address educators, who are interested in creating learning opportunities for their students that reach beyond the mere acquisition of knowledge, skills, attitudes.

Practice and research in healthcare simulation – a nursing perspective

Presented by Michelle Kelly

Friday 27th October 2017 14:00 BST (Brtiish Summer Time)

Incorporating simulation within nursing curricula or clinical services has led to a diversity of scenarios well beyond the routine CPR. Drawing on the lived experiences of clinicians, students as well as consumers a vast array of clinically focused topics have been repurposed into meaningful simulation scenarios. Whether a novice or an expert, attuning  learners to noticing the salient features of a given situation in simulations helps them to discriminate multiple forms of input and prioritise responses. Drawing on research-based theoretical frameworks and successful initiatives, this webinar aims to trigger thoughts and ideas, and encourage participants to share their experiences in how to maximise the learning and impact of simulation for clinical practice.

The webinar is suitable for simulation practitioners of any discipline and any level of experience.
