    99 - Advances in Simulation: Bringing Sim to the Masses

    99 - Advances in Simulation: Bringing Sim to the Masses

    In this next instalment in our collaboration with Advances in Simulation, Ben speaks with Dr Barbara Walsh and discussant Dr Ben Lawton (@paedsem) regarding how to bring simulation to the masses. 
    Community-based in situ simulation: bringing simulation to the masses 
    Authors: Barbara M. Walsh, Marc A. Auerbach, Marcie N. Gawel, Linda L. Brown, Bobbi J. Byrne and Aaron Calhoun 
    Despite advances in simulation technology and widespread understanding of the process, is healthcare simulation being delivered in the places that need it most? 
    Writing in Advances in Simulation, Dr Barbara Walsh and colleagues explore technological innovations and organization strategies to bring simulation outside academic or large hospital settings to other locations in need of healthcare simulation.

    98 - Lessons Learned in Sim and Education: A Montage of Friends of Simulcast

    IN this episode, we’ve asked five of our simulation colleagues to tell us what they’re doing, what they’ve found and any advice they might have for others as they work with their clinical colleagues on this challenge. 
    In this episode you’ll hear from: 
    Albert Chan (@gaseousXchange) from Hong Kong , with a great airway management infographic  
    Andrew Petrosoniak (@petrosoniak) from Toronto, Canada 
    Tim Willett (@SIMtim_one), also from Canada www.SIM-ONE.ca 
    James Leung (@drjscleung), from Mc Master, Ontario Canada 
    Christine Park (@cpark_stories) from Chicago 
    The Whats app group https://chat.whatsapp.com/LVy0T1dWvan9enqMDwElRN 
    The Google drive https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1kDrTZ0mlFgug7RfoIocZ09Crj24py8z2 
    Please be in touch if you’d like to tell your COVID simulation stories

    97 - COVID-19 Sim

    COVID19 will be challenging for healthcare providers and communities around the world. Simulation providers are helping and targeting the various challenges we anticipate. 
    In this episode Vic welcomes Jess Stokes-Parish to the team, and introduces the Simulcast page we’ve set up for sharing and curating resources for simulation providers
    They also discuss their personal experience so far with simulation preparation for COVID, and the strategies we’ve seen emerging around the world.
    More to come on #COVIDsim soon….

    96 - Journal Club Podcast Feb 2020: Virtual Communities of Practice

    Finding our (sim) people in a globally connected world – Virtual Communities of Practice 
     
    How do we find our simulation friends online? What supports the formation and nurturing of these professional groups? This month Ben and Vic discuss the paper of the month….. 
     Thoma, B., Brazil, V., Spurr, J., Palaganas, J., Eppich, W., Grant, V. and Cheng, A. (2018). Establishing a Virtual Community of Practice in Simulation. Simulation in Healthcare: The Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, 13(2), pp.124-130. 
    We explore what that means, and consider some examples Our expert commentator @andrewjtagg offers his experience with https://dontforgetthebubbles.com/ 
    For more great listening on CoP in health professions education – listen here  
     
    We continued the CoP theme in looking at :- 
    “It's Not an Acting Job … Don't Underestimate What a Simulated Patient Does” A Qualitative Study Exploring the Perspectives of Simulated Patients in Health Professions Education 
    Pritchard, Shane A. BPhysio; Denning, Tracy MOsteo; Keating, Jennifer L. PhD; Blackstock, Felicity C. PhD; Nestel, Debra PhD Simulation in Healthcare: February 2020 - Volume 15 - Issue 1 - p 21-29

    95 - Book Review - Healthcare Simulation Research - A Practical Guide

    Looking for that next step in your healthcare simulation research journey? 
    In this episode, Vic reviews Healthcare Simulation Research - A Practical Guide with two of the editors -Debra Nestel and Aaron Calhoun.  
    This book covers a vast array of research topics, with 48 chapters written by experts in their fields, with practical advice for researchers at all levels. Aaron and Debra describe what’s in the book and how to read it. They offer their own reflections on the writing and what they learnt in the process, as well as some thoughts about where the field is heading in the future. 
    There are tips for beginners and experts, as well as Debra introducing us to ‘theoretical connoisseurship’ 😊

    94 - Journal Club Monthly Wrap Podcast November/December 2019

    Ben and Vic discuss the paper of the month and consider the learning impact for active participants versus observers in sim. Vic stumbles her way through explaining a meta-analysis… 
    Delisle, M., Ward, M., Pradarelli, J., Panda, N., Howard, J. and Hannenberg, A. (2019). Comparing the Learning Effectiveness of Healthcare Simulation in the Observer Versus Active Role. Simulation in Healthcare: Simulation in Healthcare, 14(5), pp.318-332. 
     
    We continued the theme of ‘methods and metrics’ and considered a Delphi study used to develop an evaluation tool for scenarios 
     Hernandez J, Frallicciardi A, Nadir N, et al. Development of a Simulation Scenario Evaluation Tool (SSET): modified Delphi study. BMJ Simulation and Technology Enhanced Learning Published Online First: 13 December 2019.  
    And considered a proposed adjunct to the description phase of debriefing 
    Secheresse, T., Nonglaton, S. The “Timeline Debriefing Tool”: a tool for structuring the debriefing description phase. Adv Simul 4, 29 (2019)
