NYSIM Visiting Fellowship Update

Silvania Klug Pimentel from Curitiba Brazil spent 6 months at NYSIM as a Visiting Fellow. During her time at NYSIM she worked with Demian Szyld and Aku Ude-Welcome (Director, Surgical Skills Lab) on various projects. Along with Mary Ellen Sheldon, she is a co-chair of the April 11th 2nd Annual Symposium for Fellows in Healthcare Simulation. She created and piloted several informed con-sent simulation sessions for the department of surgery at NYU. Additionally she played an important role in data collection and research with Adina Kalet, (Assistant Director for Research) and is a co-author on a recently accepted manuscript on the culture of safety, an effort that Grace Ng led this fall. Congratulations Silvania!

Silvania sent us the following communication this month: “Dear NYSIM friends, I’m back home in a much warmer weather. Its good being back but I’m missing you all already. You made my time at the NYSIM wonderful as I learned so much and had a great time doing so. Upon my return I will start work at a sim center in Brazil. My hope is that I can count on you all for your expertise, advice and maybe to coordinate a visit to my center.“

NYSIM Coordinator’s Corner

The gallery show “Bedside Manner” by photographer Corinne Botz, illuminates simulation from both the SP and learner perspec-tives, ran from January 1 through February 6 at Benrubi Gallery. The show includes photos of Standardized Patients, as well as a short film that gives a glimpse into both real and simulated worlds and has artistic and educational impact. It also includes a photo of Ginny Drda, Program Coordinator at NYSIM, who is honored to be included in the exhibit.

NYSIM Associate Nursing Director and Nursing Simulation Fellowship Director Grace Ng and NYSIM Hearst Foun-dation Nursing Simulation fellow Halley Ruppel presented at the 14th Annual International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation & Learning (INACSL) Conference on June 11, 2015 in Atlanta. During the podium presenta-tion, titled “Beyond Faculty Development: Nursing Simulation Fellowships as an Innovative Approach for Devel-oping Simulation Nurse Leaders,” Grace and Halley described their respective experiences as fellowship director and fellow in the conception and implementation of a novel nursing simulation fellowship. Nurses charged with instructing in simulation-based education programs and managing simulation learning centers may be clinically experienced but often receive little or no specialized training in simulation, despite the complexity of simulation-based education. Limited avenues currently exist for training nurse educators in the specialized area of simulation education program leadership and management, and nursing simulation fellowships provide a unique solution to this gap. In the presentation, Halley and Grace discussed the back-ground, content and outcome measures of NYSIM’s innovative nursing simulation fellowship program.

The world of standardized patient educators and technology continues to evolve at the blink of an eye! The 14th Annual Conference of ASPE, the Association of Standardized Patient Educators, was held in Denver on June 14-17 and highlighted the advancement of both human and technological elements of simulation. Topics presented included Leadership as Everybody’s Business, “Yes, And” Collaboration, and unique teamwork building skills – all essential components in simulation. Program Coordinator Virginia Drda attended the conference representing NYSIM. She and her colleagues are excited to apply these new and innovative methodologies to your standard-ized patient programs at NYSIM.

NYSIM Fellowship Update

Kristen Uquillas, MD, completed her Simulation & Education Fellowship at NYSIM on June 18, 2015. During her year at NYSIM she worked on many projects such as co-facilitating the inaugural Symposium for Fellows in Healthcare Simulation with Halley Ruppel and was the course director for the NYSIM Medical Procedures for Residency program on multiple occasions. She made significant contributions to the NYU School of Medicine by designing and piloting a simulation session that will be incorporated into the OB/GYN clerkship curriculum this year. Under Veronica Lerner, MD, she imple-mented a successful in-situ simulation program on the labor floor at Bellevue. She has moved to Los Angeles where she will be the Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellow for the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology for the Univ of Southern California Medical Center. NYSIM thanks Kristen for her amazing work and dedication throughout the year; you will be missed.
