Simulation - Based Quality Improvement and Research Forum (RP1905C)
The Simulation-Based Qualify Improvement and Research Forum, Co-sponsored by the UT Southwestern Simulation Center , and the Southwestern Academy of Teachers (SWAT) is being held on UT Southwestern's South Campus. This event is offered to faculty, residents, students, and local medical education community in an effort to increase the capacity of faculty involved in simulation training to validate and disseminate high quality simulation-related research and QI. The morning portion of the event includes : Keynote speakers (Dr. Mica Endsley and Dr. Kevin Weiss) and participants presentations of research. The afternoon session has three tracks: Innovation Track which focuses on the engineering and creating of simulation, Faculty Development track which focuses a focus on elements of High Fidelity simulation, an Experiential Learning track which allows participants a structured hands on experience with the different simulation modalities, and a SWAT Track, focusing on education in simulation specifically targeted towards healthcare professionals, other than medical doctors.
