Title:
Successes and Challenges in Managing a Mobile Simulation Unit
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing has run a Mobile Simulation Unit since 2006.  The Unit is a component of a larger grant project related to emergency preparedness and public health emergencies.  The Healthcare and Emergency Responder Organization Education through Simulation or HEROES project (www.onlineheroes.org) is a successful partnership with statewide hospitals, emergency managers, colleges, and organizations.  It provides hands-on training in adult, child, and infant emergency care as well as specialized training in areas such as triage and hospital decontamination for only the costs of travel.  The team includes a nursing instructor and instructional technologist.  The project uses tools such as manikins of varying fidelity, moulage make up, and human volunteers to create simulations that challenge learners beyond the standard lecture and classroom discussion.  Specifically in working with critical access hospitals, the project team has recognized the value of bringing high fidelity simulators directly to the point of care.  Through several years of experience, the project team has experienced a number of successes and challenges which may be valuable to others as they consider developing similar mobile simulation programs.
