A podcast dedicated to the discussion of healthcare simulation. Debunking dogma, demystifying jargon and translating knowledge. Hosted by Dr Victoria Brazil and Jesse Spurr

Episodes

Ben and Vic discuss the paper of the month, which provoked controversy about the interplay of feeling and facts in clinical debriefing.

Rose, S. & Cheng, A. (2018). Charge nurse facilitated clinical debriefing in the emergency department.” CJEM, 1-5. doi:10.1017/cem.2018.369.

 

And we talked about a few other sim papers across a range of topics and research methods, including simulation educators’ qualifications and transformative experiences, and sim for improving telephone conversations in healthcare

I was joined by Jack Pottle, co-founder of Oxford Medical Simulation, a VR simulation company to discussed augmented (aR) and virtual reality (VR) in healthcare simulation.  Jack started his career as a psychologist, and has now been a doctor in acute medicine for the last 7 years. He got involved in medical education through a FOAMed site he set up called Oxford Medical Education and over the last five years has been involved with simulation – first as a physical sim instructor, now in his role as co-founder and medical director of Oxford Medical simulation  

Jack took us on a deep dive – explaining exactly what is meant by the terms AR and VR, and helped us distinguish the hype around this technology from the true potential to improve training. 

 

We geeked out a little on how it works, but then talked about AR/VR is in healthcare simulation in 2018, ad where it’s going – and its certainly likely to be in a sim program near you very soon, if not already. Anatomy and procedural skills and obvious early applications, but communication skills and teamwork via multiplayer ‘games’ are on the horizon. 

 

Jack will be leading a panel on this topic at SEAM in Spain next week, and we look forward to more from him, and in this interesting field

Sim OPS 2018 

July 26-28, 2018, Portland, Oregon 

SimOps is a healthcare simulation training and education event for operations and technical professionals. The conference attracts 200+ professionals to participate in workshops, hand-on sessions, leadership discussions and networking events. 

In this ‘pause and discuss’ I am joined by David Biffar, Assistant Director, Operations, from the Arizona Simulation Technology & Education Center (ASTEC), University of Arizona, College of Medicine  

He told us about the conference and what to expect -  the theme this year is professional development through both available courses and the networking opportunities that inherent in a conference designed specifically for the simulation operations specialist (SOS).

In this episode of our continuing collaboration with Advances in Simulation, Jesse takes the helm as we put Victoria in the guest seat with Glenn Posner, to discuss their recent publications in Advances.

 

The articles for discussion were both published in the second half of 2017.

‘Simulation in the clinical setting: towards a standard lexicon’. by Glenn Posner, Marcia Clark and Vincent Grant.

https://advancesinsimulation.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s41077-017-0050-5

 

‘Translational Simulation: not ‘where?’ but ‘why?’ A functional view of in situ simulation. By Victoria Brazil.

https://advancesinsimulation.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s41077-017-0052-3

 

We traverse the subject of how terminology sets expectation and the importance of being precise when establishing the goals and expected outcomes and matching the right modality to achieve success.

Enjoy.

Ep. 12  Rapport with Jenny Rudolph. 

 

So we all need to get along in simulation debriefing, right? 

So easy to say, and yet rapport building can be difficult in any group, let alone one that has just been confronted with their own performance 

Jenny Rudolph from the Center for Medical Simulation was our guest in discussing this concept, prompted by a recent article and editorial in Simulation in Healthcare. 

In our discussion, we step through the ‘rapport framework’ - face sensitivities, sociality rights, interactional goals - and how it might apply to our debriefing conversations. We reflected on many of the concepts discussed in our first interview with Jenny on psychological safety.  http://simulationpodcast.com/2016/10/14/ep-4-safe-container-simulation/ 

Jenny offered theoretical insights from Carl Rogers and Milton Erickson, as well discussion of as a more contemporary take from Kim Scott in Radical Candor. 

We discussed how voice and body language contribute enormously to rapport, and finish with conjecture about who to mange cultural differences in debriefing conversations. We touched on Peter Dieckmann’s work in this area as highlighted on Simulcast Journal club - http://simulationpodcast.com/2017/10/03/simulcast-journal-club-podcast-8-september-wrap/  

And more recently as published here

Advances in Simulation - SESAM

Our next joint podcast with Advances in Simulation focused on the SESAM Conference. 

SESAM is the Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine, and hosts an annual conference. 

This podcast was inspired by a blog post by Gabe Reedy highlighting the ‘best of’ work presented at SESAM 2017 in Paris, and highlighted as a supplement in Advances in Simulation journal . We also took the opportunity to look ahead to SESAM 2018 which will be in Bilbao, Spain June 27 – 29th, with the theme Translational simulation 

My guests were Gabe Reedy (@gabereedy) , author of the blog post and educational leader at SAiL Centres in London, as well as Carla Sa Couto, chair of SESAM scientific committee this year. 

Simulcast will be bringing you highlights form the conference in June.

In the next of our series with Advances in Simulation, we consider Dieckmann et al.  Variation and adaptation: learning from success in patient safety-oriented simulation training 

In their own words “we describe the learning from success (LFS) approach to simulation and debriefing. Drawing on several theoretical frameworks, we suggest supplementing the widespread deficit-oriented, corrective approach to simulation with an approach that focusses on systematically understanding how good performance is produced in frequent (mundane) simulation scenarios.” 

Peter Dieckmann and Mary Patterson joined us for the podcast, and we took a deep dive into Safety 2.0 and some theory underpinning this approach. 

Appreciative inquiry, “positive deviance” and “exnovation” are new ideas for most simulation debriefers, but ideas which we need in our toolbox for making the most of our simulation. 

We offer some practical examples for what this might mean for our scenario design, delivery and debriefing 

Thanks to our guests and to Advances for another great collaborative effort
