    This month we discussed “How to include medical students in your healthcare simulation centre workforce” by Viggers et. Al. We have already recorded a wonderful episode with Sandra on this paper that can be found here…. 
    Ben and I recap on the paper and the online discussion, as well as the expert opinion from two medical students undertaking their simulation-based education rotation at present. 
    We also reviewed 4 extra papers – one focused on reopening simulation facilities in the COVID era:-  
    Ingrassia, P.L., Capogna, G., Diaz-Navarro, C. et al. COVID-19 crisis, safe reopening of simulation centres and the new normal: food for thought. Adv Simul 5, 13 (2020).  
    and three papers with a with a simulated patient methodology theme: - 
    Smith CM, Sokoloff LG, Alsaba N. Collaborative framework for working with older simulated participants (SP). BMJ Simulation and Technology Enhanced Learning Published Online First: 16 June 2020. ( and this one makes reference to the ASPE Standards of Best practice that can be read here.) 
    Budd, Natasha PhD; Andersen, Patrea PhD; Harrison, Penny BA; Prowse, Nycole Engaging Children as Simulated Patients in Healthcare Education, Simulation in Healthcare: The Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare: June 2020 - Volume 15 - Issue 3 - p 199-204 
    Naismith, Laura M. PhD; Kowalski, Christopher et al. Participant Perspectives on the Contributions of Physical, Psychological, and Sociological Fidelity to Learning in Interprofessional Mental Health Simulation, Simulation in Healthcare: The Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare: June 2020 - Volume 15 - Issue 3 - p 141-146  
    And finally – Ben gave us a heads up for the August Journal Club. 
    Leung, J.S., Brar, M., Eltorki, M. et al. Development of an in situ simulation-based continuing professional development curriculum in pediatric emergency medicine. Adv Simul 5, 12 (2020).

    108 Advances in Simulation: How to include medical students in your healthcare simulation centre workforce

    108 Advances in Simulation: How to include medical students in your healthcare simulation centre workforce

    In this latest episode in our collaboration with Advances in Simulation, Vic speaks with Sandra Viggers (@StarSkaterDk) about her recent paper and the program she describes for involving medial student sin the simulation mission at her institution in Copenhagen. 
    We were joined by South African anaesthetist Rowan Duys (@HealthThink) and discuss the recruitment, roles and professional development and training opportunities available for students. We ended up talking about broader issues related to the positioning of medical students in health services, and sandra offered some tips about how to get started.

    107 Journal Club Monthly Podcast June 2020

    107 Journal Club Monthly Podcast June 2020

    This month’s paper was Lack of Diversity in Simulation Technology  by Conigliaro et al from Simulation in Healthcare. Vic and Ben were joined by Jess and our special guest Dr Karanjot Lall (@KaranjotLall)
    We spoke about the paper’s findings – the predominance of white skinned mannikins in advertising materials – and how simulation might instead be able to contribute to antiracism and better representation of traditionally marginalised groups. We also highlighted Debra’s Nestel’s recent SESAM keynote on a similar topic and recommend this as additional viewing !

    106 The COVID-19 Intubation Box

    106 The COVID-19 Intubation Box

    The COVID intubation box, a hot topic on social media – is it safe or effective? 
      
    Jessica (not Jesse…) hosts her first podcast with guests Jonathan Begley, Albert Chan and Vic Brazil exploring a new paper in Anaesthesia – An aerosol box for intubation in COVID-19 patients: an in-situ simulation crossover study.  
      
    We cover why they conducted the study, the outcomes, the use of simulation and future direction. We also discussed some interesting topics like the MacGuyver Bias and the article that Albert wrote in Life in The Fast Lane about the intubation box.  
     
    MacGuyver Bias Article - https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12630-019-01361-4

    105 Journal Club Monthly Podcast May 2020

     
    Ben and Vic discuss the paper of the month(s) - Cheng, A et al  A Conceptual Framework for the Development of Debriefing Skills.  - and attempt to summarise the brilliant discussion from the blog comments. 
    We discuss the elements of ‘good debriefing’, reflect on the value of having a conceptual framework for debriefing skill development, and take a deeper dive into the nature of ‘adaptive expertise’. We talk about Kris Krogh’s practice development triangle and draw on the wisdom of Booker’s rule of three and Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette. We agree to embrace the ‘rich palette’ of debriefing skills, but encourage first learning the rules about how to make purple…….

    104 Women in Simulation

    104 Women in Simulation

    Vic spoke with (Dr) Jess Stokes-Parish and Steph Barwick about the ‘Women in Simulation’ Initiative within Simulation Australasia. Diversity is important in professional communities and Steph and Jess explained a bit about the background to this initiative, the work so far and how this can positively influence policy and support diversity within simulation.
