50,000 learners at NYSIM

Three and a half years since opening, NYSIM is on track to have its 50,000th learner visit in April, 2015. This is a remarkable achieve-ment and shows the effort of our faculty members at CUNY and NYU to incorporate simulation into their curricula, the great effort on part of the NYSIM staff to make the Cen-ter accessible to learners of all levels and disciplines, and the commitment of our two great universities to quality education. Con-gratulations to all!!

In collaboration with MFM faculty and fellows from around the country, NYSIM Simulation and Education Fellow Kristen Uquillas helped facilitate a 4-hour workshop entitled “Practical Obstetric Critical Care: Hand-On Simulation” to fifty participants. The workshop was designed to strengthen participant’s under-standing of sepsis, endocrinologic emergencies, cardiac arrest, and transfusion for coagulopathy during pregnancy through immersive simulations and hands-on skills stations. The course was well received by participants and Kristen hopes to assist with it again as an MFM fellow at the 2016 meeting.

Tom Vongbandith, IT Senior Systems Analyst at NYSIM, Grace Ng, Associate Nursing Director at NYSIM and Michael Young, Director of Healthcare Education & Business Development at Level 3 Healthcare presented a workshop, “Become IT Literate: Beyond Cables, Connectors and Couplers.” Over 60 participants attended the 2-hour course which was designed to help educate Simulation Operation Specialists, Clinicians and Educators on how they can use System Diagrams, Use Case methodologies and Root Cause Analysis to better interpret simulation IT system design, perform IT needs assessment, and troubleshoot technical problems from a systems perspective. The course was well received by the participants and we hope to present it again at IMSH 2016.

Grace Ng, Associate Nursing Director at NYSIM, in collaboration with five other faculty from the Center for Medical Simulation in Boston, presented a 90 minute workshop “Improving Debriefing Skills Through Peer Observation and Feedback” to 50 participants. The goal of the workshop was to strengthen the participants’ ability to give and take feedback on their debriefing skills from peers. Via role play exercises, the participants practiced techniques for “Debriefing the Debriefer,” focusing on exploring each other’s underlying mental frames, and reflecting on their own strengths, weaknesses, and comfort zones as debriefers. This workshop was previously presented by Grace and Demian Szyld, Associate medical Director at NYSIM, during IMSH 2013 and 2014.
