Afternoon Pre-Conference Concurrent Sessions

Pre-con D (limited to 50 participants) Moulage and More: Tricks of the Trade Suzanne Brown, RN, PhD; Theresa Hoadley, RN, PhD, TNS, Saint Francis Medical Center College of Nursing; Sherrill Smith RN, PhD, CNL; Fran Kamp RN, MS, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University, Atlanta, GA Many nursing programs have implemented the use of high fidelity simulation (HFS) as an active teaching strategy aimed at improving educational outcomes. Research indicates that simulation does improve critical thinking skills and self-confidence in student nurses. However, certain concepts are not easily understood despite the use of manikins of varying fidelity. To enhance understanding and situational fidelity, a wide cadre of simulation techniques may be necessary. This presentation will focus on moulage techniques and use of unconventional strategies designed to simulate concepts and promote conceptual thinking. Pre-con E (limited to 150 participants) From Imagination To Realization: Simulation 101 Allen D. Hanberg, PhD, RN; Madeline Lassche, MSN, RN; Monte Roberts, MS, RN; Sue Chase-Cantarini, MS, RN; Melody Krahulec, MS, RN; University of Utah, College of Nursing, Salt Lake City, UT Imagine a world of your own creation, where time and space are under your command. A world where you can do anything, mistakes don't count, and the only limits are those of your own imagination. Simulation is a way to understand the world around us through creativity and imagination, a place that allows people to make mistakes so they make better decisions in the real world. In order to achieve this, a strong foundation of basic simulation methodology must be established to help overcome the limitations of our imaginations. This workshop will offer interactive activities that will enhance the novice educator's ability to suspend disbelief, engage the learner, and foster synthesis of core learning objectives. Participants will engage in activities that will strengthen their skills in facilitation, debriefing, and general scenario management. Pre-con F (limited to 150 participants) Meaningful use of Evaluation in Simulation Joyce P. Griffin-Sobel, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF Acting Dean; Alexandra Tsybeskov, RN, MSN; Hunter College - Bellevue School of Nursing, New York, NY In this presentation, principles of developing research questions for simulation, including multidisciplinary scenarios will be discussed. Evaluation of outcomes will be the primary focus, and discussion of audience questions will be included. Pre-con G (limited to 150 participants) Introducing the OSCCRs!: The Oregon Simulation Clinical Competency Rating Scale (OSCCRs) Paula Gubrud-Howe EdD RN FAAN; Stephanie Sideras PhD, RN; Oregon Health & Science University School of Nursing Portland, OR The OSCCRs was inspired by the Oregon Consortium for Nursing Education (OCNE) competency basedcurriculum. The instrument measures 6 clinical competencies throughout a curriculum and is a means to measure developing attainment of clinical competency throughout a curriculum. Tanner's Clinical Judgment model frames the anchor competency and five additional critical clinical competencies are described with measurable criteria. This interactive workshop will introduce the OSCCRs and provides opportunity for scoring students using digital recordings of students in the simulation lab.

Ann McGee Ed.D, MA, BA, President,Seminole State College of Florida Nancy Dinon, Vice President, Human Resources, Orlando Health KEYNOTE: State of the Nursing Science in Simulation: Review of Jeffries Simulation Pamela R. Jeffries PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing, Baltimore, MD Many clinical simulations and their development and implementation have centered around Jeffries Simulation Framework (2003) that was developed over 8 years ago. For many, the Framework forms the chief theoretical framework used in nursing simulation education and theory to date. Meleis, a prominent theory researcher, suggests progress in a discipline is based upon a relationship between research, theory, clinical application, and education. Eight years after the conception of the framework, has enough research data accumulated around the concepts of the framework so that it can be tested as an educational theory? This plenary session will focus on explanation of the initial work to design the framework and the thoughts behind each of the five constructs: teacher, student educational practices, outcomes, and simulation design characteristics. This session will provide the background and context for the next steps needed in the evaluation and exploration of this simulation framework.

1-A EDUCATION ADVANCED: RU SimReady Cynthia Cunningham, RN, MSN, Radford University, Clinical Simulation Centers, Radford, VA One of the challenges in simulation training is to develop an objective learning experience that can be replicated to students in a standardized manner. The Radford University Regional Simulation Centers have spent the past four years designing and validating a comprehensive approach to simulation training based on the nursing process, clinical reasoning skills, prioritizing patient care and improving student nurse confidence in skill performance. To minimize instructor bias and standardize the simulation experience the student driven approach to scenario programming was developed along with a standardized debriefing template. Each training component builds on the previous component providing the learner with the information needed to be successful in the simulation experience: Student preparation material, pre-simulation student survey, student driven high fidelity scenario, debriefing template, NCLEX type review questions and post-simulation student survey. ADVANCED: Promoting the Use of Simulation Technology in Florida Nurse Education Mary Elizabeth "Betsy" Guimond, MN, WHNP-BC; Mary Lou Sole, PhD, RN, FAAN; Mary Lou Brunell, MSN, RN; Florida Center for Nursing & University of Central Florida We will present an overview of the project and the data gathered through the recently completed 2010 Nursing Simulation Resources in Florida survey. The survey was developed to identify existing simulation resources and to obtain data about how simulation is used by education and industry. Data represent responses from 132 schools of nursing (licensed practical nursing [LPN], associate degree [ADN], and baccalaureate degree [BSN]) and 78 hospitals. 1-B LAB COORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT NOVICE: Organizing the Simulation Reservation Process Carol Okupniak, MSN, RN, CNS, Drexel University, College of Nursing & Health Professions, Philadelphia, PA This presentation will discuss the guidelines for creating a simulation reservation process that will organize all facets of the simulation experience BEFORE the scenario. The audience will be shown samples of PDF forms, and steps in making their own form. The important information needed to reserve, plan, and organize a human patient simulation will be included. NOVICE: Simulation and Lab Request Forms ­ Organizing and Forecasting Jami Monico, MS, Ed; Connie Miller, PhD, RN, UNMC College of Nursing, Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, NE "I want to schedule a simulation and lab." How do you acquire lab and simulation details, such as supply lists, date(s) of use, space allocation, etc.? Find answers here! 1-C PRACTICE NOVICE: Face to Face with Palliative Care: A Volunteer Based Simulation to Expose Students to Hospice Palliative Care Nursing Barbara Remington, RN, BScN, Loyalist College Belleville, Ontario Canada This session will illustrate a simulation that involves student nurses assessing a palliative patient in a home setting. During this presentation the recruitment and education of the volunteers will be discussed as well as the design features of the simulation. Video clips will highlight the impact the standardized volunteer patients have on student learning. It is my goal that this session will encourage others to consider this approach when facilitating palliative care education for student nurses. ADVANCED: Academia and Practice Collaborate to Improve Confidence in End of Life Care Using Simulation Candice Hickman, MSN, RN; Valerie Grumme, MSN(c), BA, CCRN; Charlotte Ladd, RN, BSN, OCN Florida Atlantic University This presentation will showcase a collaboration between college faculty and hospital critical care unit management to develop an interactive, simulated learning experience for practicing registered nurses to improve competence and confidence in managing end of life situations specific to the critical care setting. The presentation will provide an overview of this innovative educational program, and will showcase the perceptions of the critical care nurses who participate. Additionally, the need for further research and educational opportunities to bridge the gap between academia and practice to realize caring, culturally competent end of life care in the clinical practice setting will be addressed.


1-D RESEARCH ADVANCED: An Evaluation of Clinical Simulation in a Virtual World and its Impact on Practice ­ An Action Research Project Evelyn McElhinney, MSc, BSc, LPE, RN, FHEA, Glasgow Caledonian University, School of Health Cowcaddens Road, Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom This presentation will discuss the use of a 3D virtual world to carry out problem based learning scenarios for Nurse Practitioners. The findings from an action research project evaluating this teaching and learning strategy wil be shared as well as some top tips for using virtual worlds for teaching. ADVANCED: Second Life®: An Innovative Strategy For Teaching Inclusivity to Nursing Students Jone Tiffany DNP, RNC-OB, Bethel University, St. Paul, MN What would it be like to experience the world through the eyes of someone from a different cultural, ethnic, or socioeconomic background? What if nurses could learn about diversity and inclusivity while "role-playing" in a virtual world? This presentation will discuss a pilot study done with graduate nursing students, exploring the topic of inclusivity within a virtual world environment. This unique and interesting approach had some surprising results. 1-E SIM WIZARD ADVANCED: The Sorcerer's Apprentice: Tricks for the Technology Glitches Charles Simon- Simulation Technician; Janice Sarasnick RN, MSN, Robert Morris University, Moon Township, PA. What do you do when you have technical problems during a simulation? What are common technology problems? The session offers simple solutions for solving those tricky technology problems. 11:40 a.m. ­ 12:40 p.m. Concurrent Session 2 Select One

2-A EDUCATION NOVICE: Using a Service Learning Teaching Modality to Recruit Standardized Patients for Mental Health Nursing Simulations Shoni Davis, RN, DNSc; Becky Bunderson, RN, MS, School of Nursing, Boise State University, Boise, ID The purpose of this presentation is to discuss an innovative service learning partnership between Boise State University School of Nursing and the Department of Psychology with the goal of developing a pool of standardized patients to participate in mental health simulations for student nurses. As part of their service learning requirement, psychology students volunteer to authentically portray the roles of standardized patients so that nursing students can practice therapeutic communication, psychiatric assessment and apply behavioral health interventions in real life situations. The benefits to both the psychology and nursing students are that the life-like experience enriches their classroom learning. Overall, both nursing and psychology students take away a deeper sense of awareness, empathy and a caring attitude regarding mental health issues. NOVICE: Verbal Skirmish: Identifying How Effective Communication through High-fidelity Simulations Safely Deescalates Conflict Susan Hayden, PhD, RN; Joseph E. Farmer, MSN, RN; Jacqueline M. Lollar, DNP, RN; Janice Mendenhall, MSN, RN, University of South Alabama, College of Nursing Students in their Capstone course participate in a simulation experience that not only calls for assessing and treating a critical patient, but also dealing with stressed family members who are causing conflict at the bedside. The students deal with the conflict, while hopefully continuing to care for the patient. Depending on the students' response, the "actors" increase the conflict, or de-escalate. Debriefing after the activity allows for students to describe what they were feeling as they were participating and faculty assisting with evaluating their response and offering suggestions for more effective responses.


2-B LAB COORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT ADVANCED: Shifting Faculty and Fiscal Resources to Allocate FTE for Simulation and Skills Lab Coordination and Management L. Villagomeza, PhD, RN; T. Bogopolskiy, MSN, ARNP; D. Renna, MSN, RN, CNE, College of Nursing and Health Sciences(CNHS), Florida International University(FIU), North Miami, FL The College of Nursing and Health Sciences at FIU has an accelerated nursing program for foreign-educated physicians (FEPs). Clinical teaching is provided mostly by adjunct faculties who [were] not fully integrated into the university; hence, [were] not prepared to conduct simulation activities independently. The problem was compounded by lack of faculty to coordinate and manage the SimLab. To solve the problem, shifting of faculty and fiscal resources was implemented in Fall 2010 to allocate a 0.50 faculty FTE (equivalent to 6-credits) to manage the SimLab. ADVANCED: The Business End of Simulation Ronnie Stout MBA, MSN; Alex Ramos BSN, University of Texas at El Paso, El Paso TX With the focus on the high fidelity manikins and video capturing many times the cost of daily operations is forgotten, or an afterthought. Free software management tools currently used and created in the UTEP center to determine what volume can be processed through the center in an efficient and cost effective manner will be discussed. In today's economy all businesses must ensure that productivity is maximized and every dollar is accounted for while still meeting the needs of the students. Come learn how this can be accomplished on an empty wallet. 2-C PRACTICE NOVICE: Closing the Gap: Simulation for Orientation of New Graduate Nurses Kirsten Christensen, RN, MSN, Memorial Health System, Colorado Springs, CO Health care systems depend on new graduate nurses as an integral part of the health care team. In many hospitals, orientation for the new nurses is as little as a few weeks; however, research shows that ample orientation is one of the keys to positive patient outcomes and retention of new nurses. Memorial Health System, of Colorado Springs, CO, has developed a successful simulation training program for new graduate nurses that supplements orientation to his/her nursing unit. NOVICE: Using the Magic of Simulation to Bridge the Gap of the New Graduate RN to Practicing RN LeAnn Schlamb, RN, MSN, Cincinnati VA Medical Center Cincinnati, OH The magic of simulation is used to bridge the gap of the new graduate RN to practicing RN. Simulation introduced as fun learning and free thinking creates a safe environment for the new graduate to transform into the new practicing RN. The simulation experience within the first two weeks of orientation enables the new RN to transfer critical thinking and skills to the application of patient care. The simulation experience provides the nurse educator and new RN the opportunity to assess additional learning needs during orientation. 2-D RESEARCH ADVANCED: Pre Simulation Strategies: Do they Increase Student Learning, Confidence, and/or Simulation Participation? Beverly J. Davis Bye, EdD, MS, FNP-BC, FNE-A, Towson University, Parkton, MD Simulation: How do educators really gain students' attention! In order to engage students in simulation, strategies must be integrated prior to the experiential learning. Once students are engaged in the simulation experience, then they can embed knowledge. Incorporating a variety of pre simulation strategies will be discussed in this presentation. ADVANCED: Perceptions and Experiences of Nursing Students' Learning in High-fidelity Simulation: An Ethnographic Study B. Nicole Harder, RN, MPA, PhD(c), University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada This paper presents the results of an ethnographic study that looked at the perceptions and experiences of student learning in highfidelity simulation. The results of this study unveil possible factors that mediate the outcomes of high-fideilty simulation. Results: Learning from mistakes? How many is too many? What should the ensemble cast look like? What about the environment? Realism? These are just some of the discoveries that will be presented. 9

Hot Topic I ADVANCED: Hocus Pocus ­ Change the Focus: How to Maintain Academic Integrity in Simulation Stuart Pope, DNP, RN; Karol Renfroe, MSN, RN; Teresa Gore, DNP, FNP, Auburn University School of Nursing Maintaining academic integrity is a universal problem and can be especially difficult when implementing a scenario that must take place over several days due to group size and resource allocation. In spite of many efforts, incidences still arise where it is strongly suspected that information is being shared, thereby spoiling student's chances at the best possible learning opportunity. The presenters will discuss how to plan and implement an innovative approach to simulation, which will help to counter the effects of information sharing among students. Specifics of flexible scenario development will be discussed. Hot Topic II ADVANCED: Discover the "Magic" of Abstract Creation for Successful Acceptance: Wow your Abstract Was Accepted Now What? Patricia (Patty) Ravert, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF, Associate Dean, Undergraduate Studies, Nursing Learning Center and Clinical, Brigham Young University College of Nursing, SLC, UT You have great ideas and projects to share with other. This session will provide pointers for creation of successful abstracts. Suggestions for successful podium and poster presentation will be discussed. Hot Topic III NOVICE/ADVANCED: Low Cost Solutions/ Homegrown Simulator Contest Margaret (Meg) Meccariello, MS, RN, St. Joseph's College of Nursing, Syracuse, NY For the fifth year in a row, skills educators will come together to share creative solutions to everyday problems in the skills/simulation lab. Come to pick up great hints from your colleagues or participate in the Fourth Annual Low-Cost Solution. New this year you may bring a DVD of less than 3 minutes to the session to help describe your submission. If you are able bring your self-made items or creative adaptations to currently made items, to the session. You will be asked to describe your item to the attendees at the session (two to three minutes). Judging will occur during the session and the top five homegrown simulators will be featured in INACSL's journal, Clinical Simulation in Nursing in the five fast fixes section. Hot Topic IV NOVICE/ADVANCED ­ Simulation Partnership Models: Academia and Service Working Together Jared Kutzin, DNP, MPH, RN, institute for Medical Simulation & Learning, New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation; KT Waxman, DNP, MBA, RN, CNL, California Institute for Nursing & Health Care; Carol Okupniak, MSN, RN, Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA; Amy Nichols EdD, RN CNS, Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, CA; Allen Hanberg PhD RN, Simulation Learning Center Academic Advisor, Nursing, University of Utah; Mary Ann Shiinnick, PhD, ACNP-BC, CCNS, University of California at Los Angeles School of Nursing and Haru Okuda, MD, National Medical Director for the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Simulation Learning Education and Research Network (SimLEARN) Program. In many institutions, simulation has developed in a piecemeal, siloed fashion. However, simulation can be the catalyst to bring together independent institutions or departments within a hospital or university. This panel will discuss innovative programs and networks that have been developed through the use of simulation and have brought together academic departments and service organizations to improve the quality of healthcare and education.

3-A EDUCATION ADVANCED: Traumatic Death: A Capstone Simulation Experience Patricia R. Keene, DNP, ACNP-BC, ACHPN; Donna S. Sachse, PhD, RN, PMHCNS; Connie K. Cupples, PhD, RN, Union University, Germantown, TN This simulation brings together concepts from Leadership, Community, and Adult Health II. The students are presented with a car crash resulting in a traumatic brain injury. In these simulations the students initially care for the patient with the focus of survival, but later they deal with brain death. Community resources are introduced that assist the students in the care of a patient at the end of life. ADVANCED: Senior Nursing Student Simulation Immersion Experience Teri Newsom, RN, ANP, Texas Woman's University Houston, TX Description of the development, challenges, and successes of a two hour elective nursing course in a traditional BS nursing program that was taught "at the bedside" in the simulation lab. The seven scenarios chosen for this course were care of the patient with: angina, respiratory distress, pneumonia, post-operative DVT, postoperative pain, DM/DKA, and AMS. 3-B LAB COORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT NOVICE: Educational Uses of Architectural Design in an Interactive Virtual Environment Amy Goodwin, RN, MSN, APRN-BC; Earl Purdue, AIA, LEED AP; Brian Russell, Assoc. AIA, University of West Georgia School of Nursing, Carrollton, GA The lead architect from Ayers Saint Gross and an assistant professor from the University of West Georgia School of Nursing will begin by outlining each stage in the design of an academic nursing building. The architect will explain how the major focus of the nursing school developed into a skills lab and simulation suite, and how these spaces are arranged to promote work flow and proximity of uses. The presenters will highlight some innovative nursing education ideas, made possible by using three-dimensional drawings already created by the architecture firm, that allow nursing simulation to become virtual through a gaming engine. Cursory use this virtual space to teach students some basic patient-care skills and allow them to participate in patient simulation without having to be physically present on campus will be demonstrated. NOVICE: Simulation Based Learning Environment (SimBLE) Architecture: Tailoring to the Budget Damian A. Henri, RA, LEED AP, Bostwick Design Partnership, Cleveland, OH Simulation centers come in all shapes, sizes, and styles - variety that is just as much a product of differing budgets as it is differing program goals. During this presentation, we will take a look at strategies for the architectural design of a Simulation Based Learning Environment (SimBLE) at different project budget scales. Attendees will achieve a basic understanding of architectural design process, types of simulation spaces, impacts of budget on project decision making, and economical solutions that optimize the use of available funding. 3-C PRACTICE ADVANCED: Advancing Clinical Preceptor Skills through the use of High Fidelity Human Simulation Marianne Adoryan, MS, MAEd, RN-BC, Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Sarasota FL This presentation will provide the participant an opportunity to visualize a program plan incorporating high fidelity human patient simulation into a Clinical Coach/Preceptor Workshop. We will review how simulation offers an opportunity for clinical coach/preceptors to practice moving from "show & tell" method of training new hires into a more watch and assist style. NOVICE: Enhancing Preceptor Skill Development using Simulation Strategies Jean Picconi, MSN, RN-BC, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH Since preceptors can make a huge impact on nursing recruitment and retention as well as nursing education and practice, adequate preparation for the preceptor role is paramount. This presentation will illustrate the strategy of using videotaped simulations to stimulate interactive classroom techniques, not only to teach precepting principles but to provide simultaneous opportunities to enhance preceptor skill development. Viewing scenarios of typical preceptee performance issues, difficult preceptee behaviors and disruptive team member encounters sets the stage for facilitator guided in-class role plays enacted by novice preceptor participants. Through application of educational content and techniques presented in class sessions, participant's role play preceptor, preceptee and team member responses and classmate colleagues subsequently debrief them on their performance.


3-D RESEARCH ADVANCED: NLN Project to Explore Use of Simulation for High Stakes Assessment Mary Anne Rizzolo, EdD, RN, FAAN, ANEF, Consultant; Marilyn H. Oermann, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF, Professor & Chair of Adult and Geriatric Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; Pamela Jeffries, DNS, RN, FAAN, ANEF, Professor & Asso. Dean for Academic Affairs, Johns Hopkins U. School of Nursing, Baltimore, MD; Suzan Kardong-Edgren, PhD, RN, ANEF, Assistant Professor, Washington State University College of Nursing, Spokane, WA This 3-year project was designed by the National League for Nursing (NLN) to lay the groundwork for use of simulation for high stakes assessment in pre-licensure RN programs. This session will describe the process for simulation development, the evaluation plan, and strategy for field testing. Based on findings, recommendations will be made to the nursing education community regarding the use of simulation for high-stakes assessment in nursing education and areas for future research related to this practice. 3-E SIM WIZARD ADVANCED: Simulation is not just High-Tech Alone! Fran Kamp, RN, MSN, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University, Atlanta, GA If you joined us last year you were able to take away simulation strategies that you could immediately implement in your program using all levels of fidelity. As simulation becomes more widely accepted and integrated throughout the curriculum nurse educators must approach simulation in ways that are easily and inexpensively implemented. This has been a challenge given the limited number of faculty and the large number of students in the program (120-140 per class). Learning how to utilize multiple levels of fidelity to meet course outcomes is vital. New examples of easy and inexpensive stations will be provided so that once again participants can take away simulation strategies they can take with them and put into action. NOVICE: Using All Levels of Fidelity to Create Short Simulations to Promote Recognition of Acute Situations and Clinical Decision Making John G. Summerville RN MN, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing of Mercer University, GA Teaching students clinical decision making was the objective of a series of acute situation simulations. Ten minute simulations were used to allow students to experience 6 different acute situations that relate to failure to rescue in hospitals. Vital sims and high fidelity human patient simulators were used in these high level learning opportunities. 3:40 p.m. ­ 5:00 p.m. Exhibit Hall Viewing & Refreshments

The successes and challenges of the implementation process of a web-based medication dosage calculation program (eDose) in a Baccalaureate nursing program will be described in this presentation, including curriculum integration, faculty orientation, student orientation, and testing processes. Student performance outcomes comparing pre and post eDose implementation results will be described. NOVICE: Nursing's National Treasure: The Five (5) plus Five (5) Rights of Medication Administration Can you Dig It? Suzanne L. Bryant, RN, MS, Texas Christian University, TX Our clinical pearls are discovered and shared to include our Five(5) plus Five (5) Rights of medication administration. This includes the traditional: right patient, right medication, right dose, right route and right time. However, the additional five are stressed as equally important: right assessment, right to refuse, right teaching, right evaluation and right documentation. During the lecture, concepts related to medications are explored; such as mechanism of action, indications (patient specific), side effects versus adverse reactions, therapeutic outcomes, nursing assessment, interventions and evaluation. In the Pharm Lab, nursing students experience the faculty treasures; taking the concepts and applying them to the safety of administering the medications safely.


4-B LAB COORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT NOVICE: Interprofessional Team Members' Roles and Responsibilities: Myth Busters Tammy Fleming ,RN, MSN, BC; Laura Opton , RN, MSN, CNE; Amanda Terry, RN, BSN, CCRN, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Anita Thigpen Perry School of Nursing, Lubbock, TX Effective Collaboration, What Do we Really Know?

5-B LAB COORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT ADVANCED: Reliability of the French Translation of Instruments Designed to assess the Affective Learning Outcomes of Human Patient Simulation in Nursing Education Ivan L Simoneau, RN, PhD, Cégep de Sherbrooke, QC, Canada; Patrick Van Gele, RN, MS, Dean of Nursing Faculty, HECV Santé, Switzerland; Isabelle Ledoux, RN, MSN; Stéphane Lavoie, RN, PhD(c) Claude Paquette, RN, MSN, Cégep de Sherbrooke, QC, Canada Adamson and Fitzgerald (2010) reported that the relative lack of reliable and valid evaluation instruments for the measuring of learning outcomes and/or the effectiveness of human patient simulation as a teaching strategy may be inhibiting its adoption and progress in the field of nursing education. Kardong-Edgren, Adamson and Fitzgerald suggest that multiple uses and re-uses of these instruments in multiple regions by various nursing programs will help determine their reliability and validity in multiple settings and contribute to the progress of simulation science. No French-language instruments have been validated to provide educators with information about cognitive, psychomotor, and affective learning outcomes in clinical simulation settings. The objective of this presentation is to share the results of the process of translating and validating in French-language of the NLN/Laerdal study's affective learning outcomes evaluation tools for simulation (Simulation Design Scale, Educational Practice in Simulation Scale, Student Satisfaction with Learning Scale and Self-Confidence in Learning Using Simulation Scale). This presentation will also discuss the importance of increasing international collaboration and research in the field of clinical simulation. ADVANCED: A Novel Methodology for Assessing the Reliability of Simulation Evaluation Instruments Katie Anne Adamson, RN, MN, PhD(c), Washington State University College of Nursing, WA This presentation will provide participants with the knowledge and resources they need to employ a novel methodology for rapidly assessing the reliability of data from instruments used to evaluate student performance in human patient simulation (HPS) activities. The methodology utilizes three, professionallyproduced and validated vignettes that depict student nurses participating in standardized HPS activities. Participants may use these vignettes to gather evidence about the internal consistency and inter-rater, intra-rater (test re-test), and inter-instrument reliability of data produced using the simulation evaluation instruments. 5-C PRACTICE NOVICE: Using Simulation for Medical Emergency Team and Code Blue Training and Review Rita M. Wick RN, BSN, Berkshire Health Systems, Pittsfield, MA A pilot program at Berkshire Health Systems (BHS) was tested in the spring of 2010 which consisted of differentiating between Rapid Response and Code Blue criteria, team roles and responsibilities, and reviewing potential patient scenarios. The pilot was developed into a formal, regularly-scheduled program that now includes all members of the healthcare team. A blended format is utilized: instructor-facilitated group instruction, high-fidelity simulation, and video-based debriefing and discussion. This presentation will review the session objectives, participant guidelines, content, and debriefing and evaluation results. ADVANCED: Demystifying Codes: Simulation to Improve Code Response Outside of the ICU Jennifer Manos, RN, BSN, Tiffany Pendergrass, RN, BSN, Tom LeMaster, RN, MSN, Med, Cincinnati Children's Center for Simulation and Research, Cincinnati, OH Nurses in the acute care setting have the potential to face pre-code and code pediatric emergencies yet have historically had little practice and preparation for such events. Recognizing and responding to pediatric emergencies involves the integration of technical skill, critical thinking and clear communication. This presentation will discuss the development and implementation of simulation curriculums for patient safety and communication skill training within a large pediatric medical center. The development, implementation and evaluation of the courses will be presented, along with video examples of performances during simulated scenarios. 16

A major concern is the ability of our healthcare system to accommodate and provide timely and affordable access for the 40 million uninsured Americans that will enter the health care system, especially those in rural America. Nursing education programs are seeking strategies to provide students with the knowledge, skills and comfort needed to enhance the care of individuals in these remote rural regions. This workshop will describe a program that combines experiential learning using Social Media Technology to meet the needs identified with a standardized patient and caregiver from a rural underserved region. 10:10 a.m. ­ 10:30 a.m. Break, Check out of hotel.

The project will include conducting an in-depth concept analysis and review of the simulation literature over the last 10 years, to (1) update, define and refine the major concepts in the JNSF as needed, (2) to evaluate the potential growth of the JNSF from a framework into a potential theory, (3) to identify major knowledge gaps and research opportunities in the JNSF (4) to identify important future directions for research surrounding the five concepts in the JNSF. 12:00 p.m. ­ 12:15 p.m. 2012 Conference announcements sponsored by the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INASCL) and UT Health Science Center at San Antonio School of Nursing 12:15 p.m. ­ 1:15 p.m. Clinical Judgment Evaluation Inside (Sim) and Out Kathie Lasater, EdD, RN, ANEF, Associate Professor, OHSU School of Nursing, Portland, OR Simulation specialists and other clinical nurse educators often find it difficult to evaluate prelicensure students' clinical judgment development in simulation as well as patient care settings. The Lasater Clinical Judgment Rubric was developed in the simulation setting, using evidence-based methodology. The rubric offers a common language for students and nurse educators and developmental steps that form a trajectory for clinical judgment development during students' time in program. This session will provide a deeper look at best practices for using the rubric to evaluate aspects of students' clinical judgment in simulation and clinical practice settings.
