Since the start of the Cincinnati Children’s Center for Simulation and Research, some of the first learners were local EMS personnel. Thus, keeping with the tradition and desire to enhance pediatric care and safety throughout the region, the CCCSR offers outreach simulation via a mobile sim lab. Currently, the CCCSR provides outreach simulation for EMS personnel, pediatric primary care offices, and general community hospitals. The main focus of each simulation training session is to meet the needs of the learners and promote the most up-to-date pediatric evidence-based practice. This is accomplished through a focused debriefing after each simulation, centered on clinical and teamwork skills demonstrated by the learners. Performance gaps identified during the simulation are also addressed in order to promote safe pediatric care and improve patient outcomes.
