    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.

    103 Simulation or Simulacrum: Can Simulation Be Too Real?

    103 Simulation or Simulacrum: Can Simulation Be Too Real?

    Can simulation be ‘too real’? Can this ‘hyper-reality’ actually have negative impacts on learning? 
    Vic takes a deep breath and dives into theory with the team from Queens University Belfast, including Jenny Johnston, Helen Reid and Gerry Gormley. We discuss their recent Medical Education article - Into the uncanny valley: simulation versus simulacrum?  
    Eve Purdy joined the chat to offer her unique anthropological perspectives. 
    If you’ve ever felt slightly uncomfortable with OSCEs or breaking bad news to a plastic mannequin, this might help you understand why…..

    102 Journal Club Monthly Podcast April 2020

    102 Journal Club Monthly Podcast April 2020

    This month Ben and Vic discuss 4 papers, in a bit of a variation to our usual format. 
    In the first paper, the authors compare VR and ‘live’ team-based simulation for interprofessional student groups, and suggest these modalities have the same outcome, as measured by performance on a team communication assessment. Next we discuss Natarajah and colleagues’ brilliant work in Myanmar, using a low cost simulator for training to use air enemas in paediatric intussusception, with measurably improved patient outcomes. 
    In our third paper, Brown and colleagues offers a new approach to debriefing large groups, such as might be needed in large scale trauma simulations - offer us ‘simultaneous successive debriefing’. 
    And finally – we discuss Laura Rock’s BMJ Opinion piece - Don’t answer feelings with facts.  Guidance for our conversations in the clinical and simulation contexts, and well beyond. 
    Join the conversation for next month, when we pick up the March JC paper and review. Leave your comments and thoughts here. 
    All the best

    101 Simulcast Team Debrief - COVID-19 Edition

    101 Simulcast Team Debrief - COVID-19 Edition

    In this podcast, we got the full team together, Vic, Ben, Jess and Jesse, and thought we would "show our workings" through having a structured team debrief while looking in on any lessons emerging from our individual work contexts

    100 - Advances in Simulation: Living the Title With New EIC, Gabe Reedy

    100 - Advances in Simulation: Living the Title With New EIC, Gabe Reedy

    Dr Gabe Reedy has been announced as the new Editor in Chief for Advances in Simulation. Vic speaks with him about his background, his vision for the journal, and the role of journals in supporting healthcare workers, simulationists and academics during the COVID-19 pandemic. 
    His gives tribute to Professor Debra Nestel, the outgoing EIC, and tells us he aims to ‘live the title’ – aiming to be advancing the field – for scholars and practitioners. 
    Simulcast looks forward to our continued collaboration with Gabe and with Advances.

    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.
