In Situ Simulation Training for Interprofessional Teams: The Nuts and Bolts

Date: TBC | Time: TBC | Track Type: Demonstration
Format: Face-to-face | Venue: Academia
Category: Inter-Professional Education | Workshop Level: Novice

Speakers: Dr Chong Shin Yuet, Dr Mok Un Sam, Dr Lie Sui An and Dr Jacqueline Goh Hui Fen  

In situ simulation has increasingly replaced facility-based training for interprofessional teams for two chief reasons: 

  1. Healthcare providers train in their natural clinical environment, which enhances the transfer validity of their learning. 
  2. It can be used to assess systems and processes for quality improvement.

In this interactive workshop, we will draw on our experience running in situ simulation workshops in the operating theatre and ICU over the past seven years, and guide learners through the planning and development of an in situ simulation programme for interprofessional teams. We will cover key components of preparation, safety concerns, success strategies, and potential barriers. Learners are welcome to come with future project ideas for faculty input. We will also explore how in situ simulation can be used to uncover latent threats in our healthcare systems and how to translate these findings to improved patient care.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Develop an outline for a future in situ simulation project including planning, implementation and evaluation phases.
  2. Identify common in situ simulation barriers/pitfalls and develop strategies for success.
  3. Apply in situ simulation as an investigative method to assess healthcare facilities, systems and processes with the aim of improving the quality of patient care.
