Flinders SimTools to Enhance Medical Training Experience

A suite of diagnostic simulation tools has received expert help from Flinders University’s Medical Device Partnering Program (MDPP). 

With funding from the South Australian Government’s Medical Technologies Program, ‘SimTools’ received up to 250 hours of research and development assistance from the MDPP, modernising the software and providing a baseline for customised medical scenarios.  
 

Developed by Dr Cyle Sprick, Director Simulation Unit at Flinders University, ‘SimTools’ is a suite of multiple replica diagnostic simulation tools that provide realistic feedback for training medical practitioners. 
 

The initial SimTools suite of devices – which includes a stethoscope, glucometer, thermometer, pulse oximeter and ECG/defibrillator – act and function like real medical devices by providing simulated information on vital signs, such as heart rate and blood pressure. 


Negating the need to purchase manikins separately, SimTools can be used with actors or on any existing manikins. 
 

Dr Sprick said the devices are controlled wirelessly via Bluetooth, allowing teachers and assessors to create any desired medical scenario. 
 

“We can simulate deteriorating or compromised vital signs to replicate ‘real’ patient scenarios, giving trainers greater ability to teach medical students and healthcare workers,” Dr Sprick said.  
 

“With a simple swipe of the finger using an Android tablet, the trainer can control the vital signs of the diagnostic tools while another tablet displays the vital signs as they would appear in a real environment. 
 

“To the student, the devices appear to function like the real thing.” 

MDPP Director, Professor Karen Reynolds said the South Australian Government’s Medical Technologies Program is enabling the MDPP to help to bring the SimTools product closer to market. 
 

“SimTools provides the first all-in-one package, with multiple individual simulated diagnostic tools that can be controlled wirelessly by one single control system,” Professor Reynolds said.  
 

“The research and development assistance from the MDPP has taken the product a step closer to commercialisation by modernising the software interface and undertaking app development, which has created a better, more reliable interface with increased functionality”. 
 

The team are currently exploring opportunities for commercialisation.

CFA Simulation Strategy Project

CFA Simulation Strategy Project | SimulationWeek | Scoop.it

Submitted by CFA for SimulationWeek

The CFA Simulation Strategy Project is working to develop a holistic view of simulation in CFA and identify a future vision and pathway.

Simulation is an important tool for training, exercising, community engagement and operational decision making. CFA currently makes extensive use of simulation in many forms, such as map exercises, burn tables, mobile props and computer simulation. It is expected that the use of simulation will increase as technology improves and CFA adapts to changes in community expectations and a new emergency management framework.

 

2013 was a significant year for CFA simulation. Three new mobile prop systems were delivered to provide brigades with additional specialist training opportunities and a number of new burn tables were rolled out to regions. The use of computer simulation has more than tripled since 2007, with over 800 CFA members participating in computer based tactical training in 2013. Six computer simulation supported Incident Management Team exercises were also conducted in 2013.

Clinical Learning through Extended Immersion in Medical Simulation

Clinical Learning through Extended Immersion in Medical Simulation | SimulationWeek | Scoop.it

Submitted by Griffith University School of Medicine for SimulationWeek
 

Griffith University School of Medicine is conducting the CLEIMS (Clinical Learning through Extended Immersion in Medical Simulation) program for its third year medical students again this week, as it has done for the last 5 years. The success of this program is not only measured by the enthusiasm of the students, as they come out of scenarios that have provided them the an opportunity to make their own clinical decisions and experience their outcomes; but also by evidence from a randomised controlled trial that confirms its educational effectiveness.
 

A report on the study won the Simulation Australia Best Abstract award in 2011 and it was timely that the trial outcomes paper has been published during Simulation Week 2014 by the international peer-reviewed journal BMC Medical Education. The key findings of the study underline the effectiveness of extended, multi-method simulation methodologies to the transition of medical students to their role as interns. The study demonstrated that the contextualising effect of immersion in extended continuing simulation improved the acquisition and retention of prescribing skills that seem very likely to translate to better outcomes for participants' future patients.

 

For more information on this study please contact Prof Gary Rogers g.rogers@griffith.edu.au

Non-technical skills in the operating room: How do Surgical Trainees skills rate?

Non-technical skills in the operating room: How do Surgical Trainees skills rate? | SimulationWeek | Scoop.it

Submitted by Royal Australasian College of Surgeons for SimulationWeek

Simulation, as a means of acquiring and maintaining competency skills, is playing an increasingly important role in surgical training programs around the world. Its use for training technical skills in surgery is gaining acceptance and recent studies have shown that this form of training can also be used for training non-technical skills for the operating room (OR).

 

The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Research Audit and Academic Surgery Division, Specialist Training Program- Research group has recently completed data collection from forty Surgical Trainees and new Fellows who undertook simulated scenarios in the OR aimed at the development of non-technical skills.

 

The principal objectives were the development of non-technical skills competence and to investigate what factors influence the performance of Trainees in the simulated OR. Furthermore it aimed to evaluate the perception of Trainees self-efficacy in non-technical skills in the domains of Situation Awareness, Decision Making, Leadership, Communication and Teamwork.

 

One-on-one feedback was given and non-technical skills assessment used the NOTSS scoring system. Scenarios were recorded and used for assessment and debriefing purposes. Participants completed questionnaires to gather demographic data, their perceived self-efficacy and perceptions of training. Results are to be published soon.


Future work will focus on multi–disciplinary nontechnical skills training for OR teams.

The "Babel Fish" Project - Building Communication Across Simulation Communities


Submitted by Dr. Elyssebeth Leigh, University of Wollongong for SimulationWeek


Every discipline that makes use of simulation – in all its many forms – employs its own language and terminology to describe the processes, tools and knowledge involved. This may be adequate, as long as disciplines operate in silos, isolated and unaware (and/or unconcerned) about how others use of the tools etc.


As awareness of the value of inter-disciplinary cooperation becomes more prevalent, this comfortable isolationism is increasingly embarrassing, since greater collaboration requires clear communication, which implies consistent use of terms and concepts. While taxonomies may appear to list terms unique to a discipline, in essence they are all describing a single set of concepts.

 

Much as England and the USA have been described as “two nations divided by a single language”, so simulation can be defined as a discipline dismembered by multiple languages.


If simulation is to achieve its place as a profession its practitioners need to achieve agreement at the level the language of the profession, including the level of concept and theory. However there is a very big snag. So many sets of terminologies and conceptual frameworks have been developed and embedded in various disciplines that efforts to achieve unify of intention may take decades and meet fierce resistance. So another strategy is required to build the language bridges allowing users of simulation to talk to each other across the terminology divide. 

 

A key problem concerns establishing agreement about what to call things, and how to explain meanings. As part of bringing diverse perspectives together, Elyssebeth Leigh of Simulation Australia is hosting a workshop at the 2014 conference, and also at the 2014 International Simulation and Gaming Association Conference in Dornbirn, Austria. The aim is to help simulation professionals explore how they can connect their own simulation communities with other disciplines. The project aims to develop a means of providing effective ‘translation tools’ to allow simulation professionals to communicate across discipline and sector boundaries.


NB: For those how have not read “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the galaxy” the ‘babel fish’ performs instant translations across intergalactic languages once it is dropped neatly into your ear!


Contributions are welcome (eleigh@uow.edu.au). We are looking for taxonomies, encyclopedias and suggestions about how to build the necessary bridges among simulation professionals.
