Overly, MD, FAAP | Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine | Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University Program Description: Medical simulation has developed over the past twenty years as a tool to effectively and safely educate healthcare practitioners. However, “simulation” comes in many forms and does not always require access to specially equipped high-tech facilities. Simulation in its many forms offers real-time feedback on decisions and interventions in the form of changes in “patient” responsiveness, respiratory and cardiac exams, and vital signs. Through role play and interactions with standardized patients, trainees can also practice the critically important skills involved in effective, efficient and professional communication. This session will focus on the incorporation of low-tech simulation into a variety of clinical settings and will focus on the Core area of Clinical Teaching. Learning Objectives: 1. Briefly review the history of simulation 2. Describe how simulation is currently utilized in medical education with a focus on “debunking the myths” often associated with its use 3. Discuss how simulation may be utilized in its different forms, across a spectrum of settings Accreditation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Credit Designation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(TM).
