4th Annual Simulation-Based Quality Improvement and Research Forum (RP2105A)

May 12, 2021

Registration is Closed


The Simulation-Based Quality Improvement and Research Forum is offered to faculty, residents, medical students, nurses and staff members to increase interprofessional collaboration in simulation, provide guidance in translating simulation training to clinical outcomes and to showcase high quality simulation-related education, research and quality improvement projects. The morning sessions include a keynote speaker, panel presentation and research presentations. The afternoon session has seven tracks: 

  1. I Want to Use the Sim Center: Where Do I Start? 
  2. Basics of Debriefing: Creating a Psychologically Safe Learning Environment
  3. How to Run a Virtual Simulation for Communication and High Fidelity Training
  4. How to Run a Virtual Simulation for Task Training 
  5. How to Run a Virtual Simulation Using Standardized Patients 
  6. Developing Simulation-based Educational Scholarship
  7. Engineering in Healthcare Simulation

Target Audience

Physicians, Advanced Practice Nurses, Psychologists, Nurses, Residents, Students  and Other Healthcare Professionals across multiple specialties who are involved and/or interested in simulation training, simulation-related research and quality improvement.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the afternoon session of this symposium, attendees will be able to:

  1. Explain how to pursue and be successful in Scholarly Activities focused on Simulation. 
  2. Review advantages of simulation-based education and mastery learning over traditional education strategies 
  3. Describe new innovative approaches to deliver high-quality simulation-based interventions 
  4. Uhow to develop and integrate simulation-based interventions in education, assessment, and quality-improvement efforts.
  5. Describe mechanisms to design and implement effective virtual simulations for different modalities (high-fidelity/team training, Standardized Patients, and task training/procedural simulations). 
    1. Describe the steps necessary to create a virtual simulation curriculum
    2. Identify resources required to successfully implement a virtual simulation curriculum
    3. Develop assessment methods for virtual simulation
    4. Create approaches for providing learner feedback using virtual simulation
  6. Describe potential pathways for technology development (How to Innovate in Simulation).
