Increase the Realism with these Moulage Courses at SG18AUS

05/21/2018

 

An essential aspect of simulation is creating a level of realism that allows participants to 'suspend disbelief', feeling like they are in a real life situation. One of the ways this realism is achieved is through moulage. At SG18AUS, we offer a variety of moulage courses to cater for everyone from the beginner to the seasoned professional. Sign up for SG18AUS before the early bird registration deadline of May, 31 and save USD $150 / AUD $200!

P2: Advanced Moulage Workshop - Nola Pearce -- USD$200/AUD$250

Moulage improves the outcome of training by adding realism to health care scenarios and forcing participants to face realistic injuries and situations in a controlled learning environment. Moulage in nursing, medicine, paramedical and allied health simulations improves learning and take up of skills. During this workshop we will teach more advanced moulage techniques. Prerequisite is the TraumaSim Moulage Course. Topics covered include bone creation, freehand sculpting of more complex wounds, open fractures, skin flaps and problem solving.

B2: Custom Moulage Solutions: Innovative Moulage Technique for high fidelity resternotomy simulations in an acute care hospital - Tom Hallahan

The development of a high fidelity re-sternotomy scenario is unique to Epworth HealthCare , and has been an invaluable training tool for staff performing a highly technical task. As a patient safety tool, is has identified areas for improvement and driven changes in practice. This presentation shares how it is done to create a successful realistic, fully immersive experience for the ICU team.

B2: Moulage to enhance high fidelity surgical simulation to enhance surgeons' engagement - Tess Vawser

Our challenge was to immerse our trauma surgeons into a high fidelity team based simulation scenario, as part of the Definitive Surgical Trauma Care (DSTC) course for Surgeons, Anaesthetists and Perioperative nurses. Our aim was to keep the surgeons engaged and focused on a surgical technique while a critical event was unfolding within the simulated OR.. This presentation will present our challenges and successes in providing fidelity for the surgeons utilizing hybrid simulation techniques.

C2: Sculpting, Molding and, Casting Workshop - Nola Pearce

This workshop is for more advanced moulage technicians who wish to create replicable silicone wounds In a 2 hour period we will cover:

• Products, tools and techniques to sculpt a simple wound
• Products and tools to create a reusable silicone mould from the sculpt
• Products and techniques to make a silicone cast from the mould.
• Participants will have time to create a small basic mould to keep.

This workshop will not have adequate time to demonstrate painting of the finished product but will cover information on this process. We will be using skin safe silicones and professional grade products. The final cast from the participants mould is unlikely to be set in time for the completion of the session but will be available for collection later.

D3: Introduction to Moulage - Nola Pearce

Moulage improves the outcome of training by adding realism to health care scenarios and forcing participants to face realistic injuries and situations in a controlled learning environment. Moulage in nursing, medicine, paramedical and allied health simulations improves learning and take up of skills. During this introductory workshop we will teach techniques suitable for live role players or manikins. This workshop will cover simple techniques used to create injuries and the application and presentation of premade wounds.
