Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Purpose: Simulation-based training has been an effective training method in crisis resource management for years in the aerospace industry and recently in critical care/emergency medicine. This innovative education method was modified for training advanced assessment and nursing interventions in neonatal critical care. The purpose of this training was to develop skills and behaviors that are best learned actively under realistic conditions to improve performance of individuals and teams in actual situations. Our aim was to enhance competency, improve comfort level and promote safety. Description: Simulation is a teaching tool that replicates real experiences through guided scenarios in a fully interactive method. The focus is on communication, collaboration and crisis management. Our simulation facilitators were trained through an Instructor Training Course at the Center for Medical Simulation. Skills learned by facilitators were than incorporated in the development and coordination of multidisciplinary Crisis Resource Management courses. Feedback from nurses on these courses identified a need for further education around assessing and managing more critically ill neonates. Specific areas identified included expansion of knowledge and assessment skills, communication and confidence building. Three key areas targeted for the advanced orientation course were septic shock, congenital heart defects and hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy. Each class included a didactic portion covering pathophysiology and management that was then reenacted through a simulation experience. A video enhanced debriefing followed each class to review key objectives: understanding of advanced pathophysiology, critical thinking and demonstration of effective communication Through repeated exposure to simulation-based scenarios, timeliness and competence of assessment skills and resuscitative interventions were improved as well as confidence level of staff. Evaluation/ Outcome: Nurses...[Please contact the primary investigator for more information about this poster presentation.]
