Our services transcend advice about physical layout and equipment selection. As simulation directors ourselves, we help simulation champions to foster collaboration within hospital organizations, build ownership at departmental and individual levels and obtain support from key stakeholders.
Our trainers have a deep understanding of how simulation center staff, learners and participants interact with each other. Simulation instructor proficiency is a significant determinant of a program's success. We can determine staffing requirements and train instructors, from running high-technology simulators and complex AV systems or operating low-fidelity mannequins and maintaining task trainers.
Our design team creates highly flexible spaces that will engage learners, supporting both smaller-group work and larger scale team-based training. We bring to the table years of experience not only in design but also in the actual application of simulation-based training, education, assessment, and research.
Audio-Visual and Information Technology support can be an integral part of simulation-based education, training, research, and assessment. We understand the relationships between Audio-Visual, Information Management, Learning Management and Clinical Simulation Learning Management systems which is key to the design and operations of a simulation program.
Choosing the correct equipment and manufacturer is critical to the successful implementation of a clinical simulation program. We match equipment needs with the learner population to determine the optimal level of fidelity and sophistication. Our team can also help source the simulation and medical equipment required to meet your institutions programmatic needs.
Simulation can be a costly endeavor without thoughtful strategy, planning, and implementation. We begin by helping simulation faculty and educators to develop a clear mission and vision which will guide the functional needs of the facility. Our consultants are the primary authors of several seminal peer-reviewed articles on simulation programs.
