The Future of EMS Is HereSimulation has become an indispensable part of EMS training
Simulation Best PracticesSome of the most important principles you need to ensure a simulation program’s success are organizational, but people often overlook these items because they assume the work is done as soon as the simulator arrives. In this article, we discuss what every program needs in order to survive and thrive.
Performance ReviewAn overview of student debriefing The goal of debriefing: to help students interactively review their performance and understand their mistakes through effective student/instructor interaction and in a safe, positive learning environment. This article defines student debriefing and discusses its key components.
Preparing for the WorstA review of the ADDIE simulation model for disaster-response training The University of Miami Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education uses the modified Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation (ADDIE) simulation model because it’s well suited for the development of large, multi-person simulations, as well as small, isolated-skills exercises. In this article, we explore each phase of the ADDIE model in detail.
HealthONE EMS’ Paramedic Education Program offers a realistic approach to training HealthONE EMS’ Paramedic Education Program goes to great lengths to provide the right amount of reality to students during simulation exercises to help them understand the intense emergency situations they might encounter in the real world. In this article, we walk through a routine simulation exercise.
Critical actions for effective simulation experiences As one of the leading providers of simulation-based education, WakeMed Health & Hospitals knows well the rigors of providing a highly functional and well-planned simulation program. In this article, we discuss the eight critical steps to successfully implementing a simulation program.
The National EMS Academy offers a variety of simulation scenarios At the National EMS Academy, scenarios depict real-life incidents with both actors and manikins, and each environment is equipped with a camera that feeds video back to a remote classroom so classmates and faculty can watch the activity. In this article, we explore the key scenarios offered by NEMSA.
