SG-001 SimGHOSTS: A Near Tech Experience

Despite the tremendous advances in technology; acceptance by the end user is not a foregone conclusion. Behavioral intent to use a technology can present a large barrier to an innovations effective and efficient implementation. This course explains the use of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and how a skilled and competent Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist can overcome barriers to technology implementation.

  • Learning Objective 1: Participants will identify and categorize the major components of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM).
  • Learning Objective 2: Participants will synthesize an understanding of Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) as a founding principle for the Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist (HSTS) role in healthcare education and simulation environments.
  • Learning Objective 3: Participants will compare and contrast the Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist (HSTS) from other roles in healthcare education and simulation.

Detailed Content:

The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is a widely accepted model from the information technology research that describes why individuals accept and use a particular innovation or technology. Having an understanding of the TAM helps further define and demarcate roles in healthcare education and simulation.

This course first provides a comprehensive understanding of the TAM, then proceeds to synthesize this understanding into a critical role that needs to be fulfilled by a competent Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist (HSTS). For this to occur, the presenter will explain the HSTS role in terms of tasks, capabilities, and skill sets that may or may not be found in a single individuals, yet remain critical to the effective and efficient operation of any healthcare education/simulation environment. 

By the end of this course participants will be equipped to identify barriers to their own technology adoption issues, have a deeper understanding of the role of an HSTS, and identify ways to mitigate those barriers through the acquisition of a skilled and competent individual, or leveraging other human resources in their organization to fulfill all the aspects of the HSTS role.

Participants will receive a hiring guide, and methods of developing internal and external resources to fulfill the critical technology needs of their organization.
