Unfortunately, we are also saying goodbye to Adam Eljarrah who will be going back to school full time to obtain his Masters Public Health degree. We wish them the very best of luck and thank them for their dedication to our faculty and learners.
NYISM SP Program Coordinators, Meg Anderson and Virginia Drda attended the 15th Annual ASPE (Association of Standardiied Patient Educators) Conference held in Tampa, FL , June 25-29 – packed with opportunities to learn, share and reflect on best practices in SP methodologies in medical education.
Virginia Drda represented NYSIM in the workshop presentation of “Identifying and Managing Problematic SP Behaviors” co-facilitated by colleagues Eliiabeth Kachur and Tony Errichetti, which initiated collaborative strategiiing among the more than 35 workshop attendees.
The conference introduced innovations, invited collaboration, inspired professional growth and built national and international connections. The power of presence, professionalism,and interprofessionalism in human simulation were thematic highlights this year.
On Thursday, June 2, 2016, The New York Simulation Center for the Health Sciences hosted its 1st Annual Symposium for Administrators in Healthcare Simulation. This symposium was conducted in collaboration with The Cleveland Clinic’s Simulation and Advanced Skills Center for Advanced Skills Train-ing. NYSIM welcomed over 25 simulation administrators from around the country for a day of plenary sessions, panels, and discussions. We were fortu-nate to have three speakers, including Dr. Morrison from MIT Sloan School of Management, who conducted a workshop on simulation center metrics. Following Dr. Morrison, NYULMC’s own Brian Nemiroff spoke regarding strategy map articulation. Lastly, Megan Sherman and Farrah Leland, JD from the Institute for Simulation in Healthcare at University of Washington (Seattle, WA), spoke about improving simulation center operations through creative staffing, and had participants play a simulation staffing game called “simopoly.”
NYSIM hopes that this symposium will be an annual event that rotates across simulation centers throughout the country and initiates conversations amongst simulation center administrators.
We are excited to announce that our own Christopher Chung has accepted a position with NYU Langone’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as a Registered Nurse. Chris graduated in 2015 from New Jersey City University with an accelerated B.S. in Nursing. He originally joined the NYSIM team as a full time Simulation Facilitator in June 2012, and continued with us per session during his nursing program.
Chris relayed this message to the NYSIM community:
“It is very difficult to express the amount of gratitude that I feel for each of you for this accomplishment. NYSIM has been such a comprehensive part of my journey into nursing. Indeed, it is impossible to distinguish between my working at NYSIM and my nursing development. I have drawn so much from my experience working with each of you and will undoubtedly continue to draw wisdom and inspiration in the future.”
On behalf of all NYSIM staff, we would like to wish Chris the best of luck for the next step in what promises to be an illustrious and fulfilling career.
NYSIM is pleased to announce the addition of a fourth SimMan 3G patient simulator to the impressive arsenal of high tech adult and child mannequins available for your simulation programs. SimMan 3G is designed to deliver the most realistic training possible, whilst remaining simple to operate. Practi-tioners and students can perform a range of bedside and emergency procedures on these simulated patients, such as assessment and vital signs, history and physical examination, patient monitoring, defibrillation, synchronized electrical cardioversion, oral and nasal intubation, nasogastric tube insertion, intravenous catheter insertion, urinary catheter insertion, and other specialized procedures. With a wealth of innovative features including automatic drug recognition, light sensitive pupils, and bodily fluid excretion, SimMan 3G offers countless ways to achieve your simulation’s objectives.
