Innovation To Meet Student Needs Amidst A Pandemic: Collaborating with CAN-Sim
Having recently completed their first virtual simulation game (VSG) using the CAN-Sim process, Kerry-Ann Dompierre and Valda Duke share their experiences creating two VSGs focusing on the pediatric patient. During this webinar, the presenters will walk through their experiences and offer valuable information and tips to anyone interested in creating their own VSG. They also outline their plans to research and evaluate their VSG.
Development of a series of virtual simulation games (VSGs) for nurses and nursing students in response to the COVID-19 pandemic: Essential skills training
This presentation will review the development and evaluation of a series of COVID-19 virtual simulation game (VSG) educational modules. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and the Canadian Alliance of Nurse Educators using Simulation (CAN-Sim) collaborated to provide essential education for nurses and nursing students. In less than two weeks, a team of simulation and clinical experts met online to develop an educational module focusing on COVID-19 assessment and personal protective equipment (PPE). This module was designed to strengthen the capacity of graduating nursing students and practicing nurses to provide care during the COVID-19 health crisis. Available in both official languages, this module included the comprehensive VSG along with valuable related resources such as self-assessment rubrics, methods of virtual debriefing, reflective questions and preparatory readings.
Launch of the Sexual Orientation Gender Identity Website (www.soginursing.ca) Current education lacks LGBTQI2S content for healthcare practitioners (HCP). Providing HCPs with an understanding of LGBTQI2S health issues would reduce barriers. This webinar will explore the online educational toolbox that was developed to bridge this gap. Content includes videos discussing key concepts related to cultural humility, know your bias questionnaire, virtual simulation games (VSGs), reflective questions, virtual debriefing options, and other valuable learning resources. The Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Nursing Toolkit was created to advance cultural humility in practice. Learning modules focus on encounters using cultural humility to meet the unique needs of LGBTQI2S community.
