By: Beth Hallmark Faculty, clinical and laboratory, in the school of nursing at our university are expected to participate in simulation and debriefing training. While faculty facilitate simulation with human patient simulators, that is not the only educational environment where they use the tenants of simulation education. The NLN has published an important Vision Statement in collaboration with INACSL, “DebriefingRead more
By: Allison F. Perry When I first became involved in simulation through the development of the Patient Safety Congress Learning & Simulation Center, which I described in Part I of this two-part series, the direct connection with, and strong purpose for, collaboration between safety and quality departments in health care organizations were quite obvious to me. I found myself embeddedRead more

By: Tonya Schneidereith and Fara Bowler In Part 1 of this series, we talked about how to determine if your program is ready for simulation. Now, in Part 2, we highlight the role of strategic planning. According to the Cambridge Dictionary, strategic planning is “a process in which a company’s executives decide what they want to achieve and the bestRead more
By: Alaina Herrington This is the second part in the four-part series on the Evaluation of Educators Who Teach Simulation Pedagogy. Read part one of the series. The INACSL Standards of Best Practice SM (2016) recognize the need for ongoing training for facilitators of simulation. In addition, the Society for Simulation in Healthcare Standards (2016) requires programs to ensure theRead more
By: Allison F. Perry My first exposure to health care simulation came in early 2010 while working for the National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF), now merged with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), where I am a project director. We were in the early stages of planning our next Annual Patient Safety Congress, a meeting that provides practitioners, leaders, andRead more
The Evaluation of Educators Who Teach Simulation Pedagogy: Part I of a 4-Part Series Who’s Looking Downstream at Simulation Train the Trainer Participants?
By: Sabrina Beroz This is the first in a series of four blogs on the evaluation of educators who teach simulation pedagogy. Many institutions send their educators to Train the Trainer programs. The hope is these participants will return home to teach their newly learned simulation knowledge to other health care educators. The question arises: Who is looking downstream atRead more
