SimTecT 2008 - Healthcare Simulation Conference - Brisbane, Australia

Posted by Kiki at 9:31AM

Hi All,

We've just come back from sunny Brisbane and a week of work with some of the Asia Pacific region's leading clinical skills educators. The SimTecT 2008 Healthcare Simulation Conference is the region's premier annual medical simulation conference and a great opportunity to catch up with people.

As always, it's great to hear positive feedback about the injection training pads, but the comments on the latest clinical tutor software were a pleasant surprise. It's good to see that all the thought and collaboration has paid off.

The best part for me, was getting people to practise on the pads, in particular seeing the joy on someone's face as they hit a vein and draw blood successfully - especially with the catheters (cannulas).

It's funny, even with years of experience, educators still seem to get as much of a kick out of hitting a vein as students do. Why do you think that is?

It's probably relief that they can still perform what they teach!

Indeed Irene. Sometimes the educators need a refresher like everyone else for the most essential techniques.

In fact we have had many educators using our products to prepare themselves for their return to clinical work.

I am sure the patients will appreciate it!

the month in Spanish and then translates it. His/her team gets one point for knownig the word and one point for good pronunciation. I usually have a second helper keep the score.Rotate through the teams and as answers are correctly pronounced and translated, erase the word. I leave the word up if the student only gets one point, because chances are others don't know it either, and this gives more chance for review. If the ball lands on an erased space or misses the grid, his/her turn is forfeit, to make the game go more quickly. Keep track of the points and the winning team and helpers earn a little prize- usually a pencil grip or fancy eraser. I usually allow them to review the vocabulary as they wait in line(less chatting and more review), but they can't look at notes when it is their turn to throw. If someone else calls out the answer that team can lose a point or turn. This works well for me in a 40 minute class. The kids ask for this game at review time. I've used it for greetings and goodbyes, house vocabulary, weather and seasons. Mary
