    Lectures

    One Direction for the Newborn
    Suzanne Fraiche, BSN, MSN, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center
    Summary: This session will present the key features involved in initiating an in situ simulation program for the newborn resuscitation and stabilization in Level I and II nurseries.

    Deploying New Technologies to Enhance Simulation Experiences throughout the Academic Spectrum: Nursing Undergraduate through Post Master Courses
    Debi Sampsel, University of Cincinnati
    Summary: This session will present how using various types of technology can enhance undergraduate and graduate students’ interactive experiences in an Intraprofessional Innovation Collaboratory simulation setting.

    From the OR table to the Playset:  How Simulation built the foundation for the MCS Program at Cincinnati Children’s
    Aimee Gardner, CCP; Richard Owens, CCP; Angela Lorts, MD;  Jamie Shoemaker, RN; Gary Geis, MD; Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center
    Summary:  This session will provide a sampler expo of MCS (Mechanical Circulatory Support) simulations that tell the story of a patient from implant of a device through discharge.  Simulations will include CICU Management, Discharge Family Education, Emergency Room MCS Trauma Response and EMS Response.

    Implementation of an End of Life Simulation into the Baccalaureate Nursing Program
    Gina Fieler, RN, MSN, Northern Kentucky University
    Summary: This presentation will discuss the simulation format, implementation into the baccalaureate program, objectives of the simulation, and evaluations of the simulation experience by students and nursing faculty.

    Workshops

    "Speak English!": Training Innovations for Best Practices in Medical Interpreting
    Eloiza Domingo-Snyder, MS, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center
    Summary: In this session the Linguistic Services and Diversity & Inclusion department will reveal a new era of training medical interpreters using simulation to provide safe and equitable environments and world-class experiences for Cincinnati Children’s patients and families. 

    Mirroring the Transformation of Healthcare through Simulated Experiences in an Intraprofessional Innovation Collaboratory House
    Debi Sampsel, University of Cincinnati
    Summary: This presentation demonstrates how thinking outside the box can create fun and engaging simulation learning environments for the community at large, the faculty, the students and the workforce team members by creating an Intraprofessional Innovation Collaboratory House where human patient simulators reside.

    How to Effectively Use Simulations to Develop Clinical Skills
    Katie Ondo, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center
    Summary: The participant will list, define and apply the critical elements of simulation-based education using the 12 steps for planning a simulation from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. Participants will work collaboratively to create highly effective simulations.                                                     

    Developing Leadership and Systems Thinking Through Simulation at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
    Carol Caldwell, PhD, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center
    Summary: This session will focus on how Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center incorporates a leadership hospital simulation as a means to develop strategic thinking, systems thinking and business and financial acumen.

    An innovative approach to neurological education using a standardized patient
    Nichole Kelsey, BSN, Cleveland Clinic
    Summary: Participants will participate in an interactive video-based simulation where they will be asked to identify the patient problem through an audience response system, followed by a small group exercise, and reflection on application to individual practice needs.

    “Sim Wars”
    Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center Staff
    Summary: Witness the battle between three departments from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center: Trauma Services, Emergency Services / Medicine main campus and Emergency Services / Medicine Liberty Campus.
