The Simulation Division recently traveled to Toronto, Canada to give presentations at the 2014 Canadian Simulation Summit hosted by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, held September 11-12, 2014.
Dr. Jessica Parsons gave an impressive oral presentation on Randomized Controlled Trial Using Simulation Education to Introduce and Engineered Safety Device to Prevent Needlestick Injury. Many attendees stated that they thought her presentation was the best of the series.
Drs. Srikala Ponnuru and Jessica Parsons along with Jami Smith, John Erbayri and Michele Spotts presented a workshop, to an international audience, on Plus Delta Discuss - a new Twist on Debriefing. The team created two video cases and presented their debriefing method live. Special thanks to Jamie Teufel who helped prepare the videos used in workshop.
The Summit also gave the team an opportunity to highlight the new Master of Science in Medical and Healthcare Simulation Program with a booth at the conference. There was a lot of interest in the program and the team is hopeful that they will see some of their faces in the next class.
