How Simulation Can Help Prepare New Nurse Graduates
Download our eBook to learn how to implement simulation to improve retention rates, decrease costs, improve NGN confidence, and improve nurse performance.
National Minority Health Month, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, aims to raise awareness of minority health disparities. Laerdal Medical is supporting the initiative throughout the month of April, promoting simulation resources that can be used to better prepare healthcare providers to treat patients who are part of a racial or ethnic minority.
In nursing schools, where there is an almost unanimous burden to do more with less, peer-to-peer learning has been an emerging trend. Peer-to-peer learning, sometimes referred to as peer teaching or peer mentoring, involves learners in a similar situation learning from and with each other through their interactions. In this article, we highlight how this educational approach can help you to more effectively train new nurses.
Racial and ethnic minority health disparities are reflective of implicit biases in healthcare. Simulation can help to develop a healthcare professional’s self-awareness and cultural competency.
Patient safety initiatives have advanced considerably over the past 20 years. At each milestone toward improving patient safety, some of the best healthcare organizations in the world have turned to simulation as a training method.
Low-fidelity simulation can provide learners with a wealth of training experience – at minimal expense. Learn three ways that you can use low-fidelity simulation training to reduce preventable harm to maternal and newborn patients.
Transferring knowledge from low-resource settings to high-resourse environments.
CPR feedback has come a long way since the development of the world’s first CPR manikin. Prior to 1960, many unusual methods were used to treat victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Intuitively, people knew that there was something that could be done to revive victims – and then science proved them right. Here’s a look at the history of CPR feedback through the lens of the most recognizable and “most kissed” woman in the world – Resusci Anne.
Clinical simulation used to be synonymous with “task training.” Now, simulation is about creating a real-life rehearsal in an environment where task training is only one small part. Nursing has settled into a new norm. In this article, we discuss how nursing has changed in the past 25 years, and how increasing your simulation fidelity can help you impart the necessary skills in today’s nursing environment.
