Cognitive Considerations in Simulation
This summary highlights the 6th annual Networking event organized by the Arizona Simulation Network. AzSIMnet, as we are affectionately called is an interdisciplinary group of simulation educators, users, technicians, and facilitators.
The event brought together 25 active members, a multitude of volunteers from many agencies; staff and volunteers from our event host Chamberlain College of Nursing. The facilities were wonderful and the support much appreciated. The sessions were engaging and allowed us to be participants when we are usually the planners and executers of simulation events.
The active shooter event allowed us all to think and reflect on what we do in an actual event. The event started with a presentation from Marvin Tahkahmera and Ashlei Hawkins who provided an overview of the roles and responsibilities of persons in an active shooter event; the role of the healthcare worker, police department, sheriff’s department, bystander and staff member where put into active practice with a staged simulation that engaged various audience members. Thanks to all who participated in the live simulations.
Kenny Morris engaged learners by teaching them how increase the realism in simulation, Tracy Chesney highlighted a study that will be conducted in regards to situational awareness and simulation and Marvin and Ashlei demonstrated correct application of tourniquets in our afternoon sessions.
Fun was had by all and we greatly appreciated the support of the following vendors: CAE Healthcare, Leardal, Temsops, Limbs & Things, Vosaic, Pocket Nurse, Medical Shipment and Education Management Solutions!
