THEF Members Learned About Simulation Training At Summer Meeting

The summer THEF Meeting/Program was held on Wednesday, August 13, 2008, at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center.  The title of the program was “Simulation in Healthcare:  Opportunities and Mandates for Healthcare Executives.”  This program was most interesting, featuring speakers Dr. Jeff Carter, Bradshaw Research Fellow of the Department of General Surgery, WFUBMC, and Dr. Ian Saunders, Operations Manager of the Center for Applied Learning at WFUBMC.  Drs. Carter and Saunders revealed that there is a revolution happening across the state and the country in the way in which clinicians, including physicians, nurses, and other allied health professionals, are being trained.  They made the compelling case that utilizing high fidelity simulators in high tech simulation labs in a group setting is the way to go.  Not only do students practice and perfect procedural skills, but they practice cognitive skills as instructors present new patient conditions in the simulator to which the student must respond.  There is no worry about harming live persons during this process.  Simulators are also great for demonstrating competencies.  There are currently 58 simulation labs in North Carolina.
