2019 Workshops

Monash Rural Health Bendigo - La Trobe University Bendigo - Bendigo Health (Completed)

7th October 2019, 8:30am - 4:30pm 

Venue: La Trobe Clinical Teaching Building, 109 Arnold Street, Bendigo

Module: C2 – Being a simulation educator

This module covers basic principles of simulation with particular focus on educational design for simulation scenarios, briefing and debriefing practices. We consider what it means to be a simulation educator. Even if you are mainly involved in technical aspects of simulation-based-education (SBE), we think it is important to be exposed to the core elements of the work of a simulation educator.

  • Facilitators: Therese Worme, Jennifer Bassett and Dr Cameron Knott
  • Open to external participants (Limit 8)
  • Cost: Free to Monash Rural Health Bendigo/La Trobe University Bendigo and Bendigo Health staff members. $550 for external participants.

11th October 2019, 8:30am - 12:30pm 

Venue: Monash Rural Health Bendigo, 26 Mercy Street Bendigo 3550

Module: S5 – Simulated patient methodology

This module introduces some core facets of simulated patient (SP) methodology. The focus is on preparing SPs to work in healthcare simulations. The module describes a systematic approach to SP methodology. The module addresses issues at the level of the clinical training program (e.g. scenario development, alignment with curriculum, assessment etc) and at the level of the individual SP (e.g. casting, performance training etc). You are encouraged to think creatively about the breadth of content to which SPs can contribute to your own practice and to reflect on current approaches.

Module: S6 – Patient focused simulation

When clinicians perform examinations and procedures on patients, they are expected to manage a complex set of skills (e.g. psychomotor, communication) while exercising clinical judgment and other aspects of professionalism. We often teach these components of the complex sets of skills separately. Hybrid or blended simulations enable trainees to bring all these skills together. This module explores the expanding practice of hybrid simulations also known as patient focused simulations. That is, the ‘combining of simulators’ – usually a simulated patient (SP) with a skills trainer (e.g. bench top, VR simulator etc). Here we briefly revisit some of the concepts in Module S5 – Simulated patient methodology, but consider their application to procedural and operative skills. That is, in patient focused simulations. We also explore the contribution of hybrid simulations to sequential simulations and the role of feedback, especially as offered by SPs. You are encouraged to think creatively about the application of patient focused simulations in your practice.

Alfred Hospital – Emergency & Trauma Centre (Completed)

15th July 2019, 9:30 am – 1:30 pm

Venue: Glen Bucknall Meeting Room, Pathology, Alfred Hospital

Module: S9 – Debriefing in simulation

This module provides you with an opportunity to reflect on your debriefing practices. The online module revisits information on debriefing from Module C2 - Being a simulation educator. Here we explore conditions for effective debriefing. However, effective debriefing is much more than a set of skills and techniques. It is important to continue to reflect deeply on your values about learning and teaching. There will be an opportunity for you to share experiences of what works and what does not together with opportunities to practice and receive feedback on your debriefing. You will also have an opportunity to use different techniques to reflect on your debriefing practice and set goals for further development of your debriefing.

School of Psychological Sciences, Monash University (Completed)

26th June 2019, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Venue: Rm G.21, 19 Ancora Imparo Way, Learning and Teaching Building, Clayton Campus

Module: C2 - Being a simulation educator

This module covers basic principles of simulation with a particular focus on educational design for simulation scenarios, briefing and debriefing practices. We consider what it means to be a simulation educator. Even if you are mainly involved in technical aspects of simulation-based education (SBE), we considered it important to be exposed to the core elements of the work of a simulation educator. This module facilitates formation of a local community of practice by bringing participants together to discuss and practice SBE and training techniques.

Module: S10 – Developing scenarios

Scenarios are a fundamental part of simulation-based education and require careful planning to enable the simulation to meet required learning outcomes. Scenarios can be difficult to develop and may require several iterations to optimally support learning. Factors that enable and constrain scenario development will also be discussed.
