P5 Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education Tour $25

The Gordon Center for Simulation and Innovation in Medical Education (GCSIMed) is a designated Center of Excellence of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. It was established more than 45 years ago for the application of advanced technology to healthcare education. Audiences taught include medical, nursing and physician assistant students, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, paramedic/firefighters and healthcare simulation faculty. In addition to direct training using simulation and other educational technologies, the Gordon Center is also engaged in interprofessional education, team training, development of new technologies and tools for healthcare education, assessment and outcomes research, and faculty development in simulation and educational research. Over 2,200 medical centers and agencies worldwide use the educational systems and training curricula developed at the center.  The most long-standing example of its creative work is Harvey®, the Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator. First introduced in 1968, it has been validated in numerous studies and trains thousands of learners worldwide. 

The Gordon Center’s Prehospital and Emergency Training Programs train thousands of registrants per year at more than 700 agencies in Florida and more than 1,000 in other states, as well as internationally. Courses address multiple content areas, including cardiac life support, trauma, pediatrics, stroke, heart attack, advanced airway, team training, point-of-care ultrasound, active shooter, and disaster response. First responders manage problems using simulators and actors to play the role of patients. The Gordon Center’s curricula are disseminated to Florida’s state and community colleges, and the first responders who are trained respond to the 911 calls of millions of Floridians. The Gordon Center also helps to train U.S. Army Forward Surgical Teams prior to front-line deployment, and healthcare providers from other high- level federal agencies, including the White House Medical Unit. 

During the SimGHOSTS 2019 US event, attendees will get to take a guided tour of this pioneering 34,000 sq.ft. state-of-the-art facility, with the capability for simulation and computer design engineering, production and manufacturing. It houses a high-technology auditorium, self-learning laboratory, standardized patient training area, team- based simulation rooms, fire rescue vehicle, car for extrication of trauma victims, military field hospital, hazardous materials decontamination area, and mock emergency department.

P7 Advanced Scenario Planning with Laerdal LLEAP and SimDesigner $75

This workshop will explore various advanced SimDesigner features and programming methodologies. Trends and Handlers are valuable but often overlooked tools for automating scenario progression and manikin responses. This workshop will take LLEAP users through the process of creating a “semi-automated” scenario using SimDesigner Software. 

Participants must have completed the Introductory course or have previous experience using SimDesigner as individual support for novice users will not be available during this workshop. 

Facilitator: Nick Brauer, SimGHOSTS 


P8 Simulator Maintenance of SimMan3G $75

 Simulators are an important investment in your educational program. Protect this investment by becoming proficient with routine maintenance procedures designed to keep a simulator performing at an optimal level. Participants will also learn basic troubleshooting, how to resolve connectivity issues and other simple tips and tricks. Prerequisites required for this program: Familiarity with Laerdal simulators and software. 

Facilitator: Steve Ospina, Laerdal Senior Field Service Engineer 


P9 Demystifying the Conference Submission Process and Presentations: Tips and Techniques for Success $75

SimGHOST members possess an amazing wealth and breadth of experience and knowledge, however the thought of presenting at a national conference is daunting and intimidating. This course is to encourage you and support you in sharing your simulation activities, programs, knowledge with colleagues. How does one start the process? How do you take an idea into a presentation? How does one get their 

proposal/abstract accepted? What are best practices in presentation techniques? This interactive pre conference course will take the participant from idea development, to abstract submission to final presentation and even give information on publication opportunities.  At the completion of the course, the participant will have the skills and knowledge to prepare a submission for SIMGHOSTs 2020. 

Facilitator: Dr Helen Cornely 


P10 Fast and Effective uses of Moulage for Manikins and Task Trainers $75

In this workshop we will approach theory and application of moulage for manikins and task trainers. We will go over the materials, products and theory of manikin moulage. ROI and learning objectives should be thought of every time you make a simulation case, and is even more important when you add materials such as makeup when enhancing simulation. How do you get just enough of a cue across to the learner that guides them to the correct diagnosis or clinical pathway? Now how do you do this in such a way that does not take your manikin out of service for an entire day for cleanup and reset? These are some of the problems we will discuss and find solutions for. 

Facilitators: David Shablak & Will Enfinger 


Wed July 31st Workshops

B2 Trach Model Adaptation for Realism $25 - Jane Fedoruk

Learn how to build the skin adaptation to Dr. Kei's and Dr. Mebust's Trach Model, for a more realistic tactile experience when performing a tracheostomy. All participants will receive a 3D printed trach to make their own model. 

 

B3 SIMBODIES Moulage: Stop the Bleed! $25 - Linzi Foxcroft & Joanna Wilson

The 2-Hour workshop will be delivered by combining expert demonstrations and practical sessions, where students will have the opportunity to see how simulated haemorrhaging wounds are created that deliver simulated bleeding to the point of injury. Examples of Gunshot wounds with both entry & exit wounds will be demonstrated together with other injuries. All participants will receive a sample wound to take home. 

 

B4 Casting Silicone Moulage for Realism and Repeatability $25 - Steven Lichtenberg 

Take your moulage skills up a step by building plaster casts to use for making multiple silicone pieces that are consistent and much easier to build. This workshop will take your skill to the next level by using clay, wax, and other materials to design your original pieces. Using the original to build a plaster negative, you will have a permanent tool to use to build multiple moulage pieces. This allows you to quickly make another piece when the one being used either wears out or becomes non-functional for some reason. Additionally, making multiple pieces like lacerations, bullet wounds etc becomes easy. Make as many as you need for your scenario and be assured they will all look great. This technique can then be expanded to make full masks for your simulator to allow the manikin to become older or more decidedly female or even make it into a monster! All participants will be able to make their own silicone pieces to take home during the workshop

 

Thursday August 1st Workshops

Examples of Gunshot wounds with both entry & exit wounds will be demonstrated together with other injuries.

 

F3 Revenge of the Cyst $25 - Zachary Wade

Every moulage piece has a purpose, then there are those that have purpose as well as function. In this workshop, participants will learn to create a cyst that will have the ability to rupture under pressure or when lanced. 

Participants will create their own functioning cyst using advanced moulage techniques so need to have an intermediate moulage skill level as a prerequisite for this workshop. To finish, everyone will have the chance to see how effectively their cyst ruptures. 

 

F7 Electronics Basics - Warming up to Soldering and Current Trends in Electricity $25 - Victor Torres

In this workshop, attendees will learn about the power requirements for their simulation equipment and the terminology and technology to keep them running. This will include a discussion about batteries and battery safety, soldering, and simple tips to keep your gear powered up and ready. Participants will have an opportunity to practice soldering and will understand different types and techniques for soldering. All participants will be provided with a mini soldering kit to use during the workshop and to take home with them to continue practicing their soldering skills.
