Excellence in a New Era – Celebrating innovation and collaboration in healthcare simulation

Healthcare Simulation Week 2022

“No matter where the road takes us, excellence has been, and will be, our guide.”

To mark Healthcare Simulation Week 2022, we are pleased to present a Webinar to highlight simulation advocacy, collaboration and innovation. We are honoured to have the Chair of the VSA Board, Professor Debra Kiegaldie along with two international guest speakers - Birgitte Bruun and Teresa Evans to discuss their latest simulation work.

Presentation 1

Pre-roling: a model for facilitators and simulated participants to systematically prepare together for full-scale simulations (But hey - do we really need another model?)

Birgitte Bruun, Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES)

This webinar was recently presented at SESAM in Seville, Spain by Birgitta, Peter Dieckmann and Eva Thomas.

Birgette will present a model for systematic preparation for full-scale simulations to be used by facilitators and simulated participants together. The model has been developed on the basis of ethnographic fieldwork among novice simulated participants at the Copenhagen Academy of Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES). The model is developed to provide more explicit frames for simulated participants’ efforts to simultaneously attune to their character, the learners, and their facilitator. My talk will begin with a brief overview of the literature that have inspired our analysis of data and the development of the model, and then I will present the model itself (and then you tell me whether it might be useful or not).

About the speaker

Birgitte Bruun is a Danish anthropologist who has worked in global health shifting between roles as researcher, consultant, and project manager before obtaining a PhD from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. For the last five years Birgitte has worked as a senior researcher at CAMES in Copenhagen.

Presentation 2

Collaborative Online International Learning: An Australian-Canadian Virtual Simulation Experience

Professor Debra Kiegaldie, Clinical Chair of Nursing, Holmesglen Institute and Healthscope Hospitals, Victoria, Australia.
Teresa Evans, Northwestern Polytechnic, Grande Prairie, Albert, Canada

Collaborative Online International learning (COIL) provides rewarding opportunities for students to engage across the globe and develop meaningful relationships with fellow students. Using online and digital technologies that incorporates simulation, it is possible to connect students internationally, and create significant learning experiences without the limitations of time and the financial burden of travelling abroad.

Deb and Teresa will share their experiences of developing and implementing a COIL project in nursing including how they integrated virtual reality into a virtual global classroom. They will share their work on an indigenous led design of a virtual simulation on Indigenous Health. They will also provide their insights on how to create a successful global education and research partnership for students and faculty.
