Abstract:
Area of Focus: The use of high fidelity mannequins in a simulation (SIM) lab, and collaboration with the Ottawa Public Health (OPH), as an alternative approach for a Maternal Newborn BScN practicum. Objectives: 1) To explain our creative method of addressing the limited clinical resources for a Maternal/Newborn practicum. 2) To introduce the innovative combination of technology and theatre arts students in a SIM lab. Large numbers of students in the BScN program, as well as students from several other programs simultaneously need access to Maternal/Newborn clinical experience concurrent with decreasing numbers of hospital beds. This situation initiated our focusing on the Family, as context, rather than on clinical location. Our decision was supported by combining the SIM lab technology and theatre arts students with the involvement of the Ottawa Public Health community nurses. We will describe how we 1) collaborated with the OPH to assist with meeting our practicum outcomes; 2) developed scenarios including the theatre students and the high fidelity mannequins and 3) collected research data to justify the continuation of this innovative approach to both meet our clinical requirements and effectively utilize our resources.
