Simulation in Medical Education
Please join us Thursday, May 11, 2017, for an evening dinner talk with guest lecturer is Dr Greg Peachy at the Waterloo Regional Campus. Dr Peachy is an anesthetist and simulationist from McMaster and is a dynamic speaker who is very passionate about the use of simulation as a novel instructional method in medical education.
His talk is titled: Debriefing the Gorilla: Observations and Reflections for Developing Skills in Simulation Instruction.
The session will focus on
-defining the ‘debrief’ as a component of the medical simulation training construct
-describing strategies to set the debrief agenda
-identifying limitations of observational skills and their impact on the debriefing
-providing a framework for the debrief
-addressing necessary elements of a structured assessment of debriefing for instructors
Waterloo region has matriculated into a reputed and progressive medical centre of excellence with innovative, successful medical programs. But we need to keep pace with novel learning strategies and adopt instructional methods that promote competency-based learning at all levels of medical education.
Simulation complements the educational curricula at the UG and PG levels by facilitating the observation and assessment of required skills, tasks and responsibilities that may be challenging to assess with traditional methods and it minimizes patient risk. As preceptors, we may need to turn to simulation occasionally to either re-create high-acuity, low occurrence scenarios should our trainees lack key clinical encounters or to teach technical skills necessary for the discipline.
