The METI Difference • Preprogrammed scenarios (simulated clinical experiences) for different levels of students • Program for Nursing Curriculum Integration (PNCI) v.4 100 Adult, Child, Infant • PNCI Choice Modules: limited number from the PNCI • Adult Nursing (20 SCEs) • Pediatric Nursing (16 SCEs) • Infant Nursing (8 SCEs) • Nurse Residency Program Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
Program for Nursing Curriculum Integration (PNCI) • 100 Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEsTM) • 76 adult, 16 child and 8 baby • Patients are all ages, male and females • From various cultural backgrounds • Wide variety of conditions, acute and chronic, all stages of illness from emergency room to discharge • In a variety of settings, both hospital and non hospital (rehab, health fair) • Different interventions, skills, medications, safety issues, communications, health beliefs and ethical issues are imbedded in the SCEs Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
100 Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs) • Semester I Health Assessment - 9 SCEs Skill Validation - 1 SCE • Semester II Adult Medical Surgical - 18 SCEs Childbearing - 5 SCEs Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
100 Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs) • Semester III Chronic Care - 11 SCEs Community Care - 5 SCEs • Semester IV Adult High Acuity Medical Surgical - 9 SCEs Adult Critical Care - 17 SCEs Leadership/Management – 1 Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
100 Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs) • Pediatrics PediaSIM - 16 SCEs BabySIM - 8 SCEs • Tools SBAR Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
Simulated Clinical Experiences • Components include • Synopsis • Learning objectives with cognitive taxonomy • Patient background information and history • Healthcare provider’s orders • Questions for learner preparation • Simulator set-up and instructor notes • Scenario including simulator enabled findings, minimum behaviors expected and prompts, questions and teaching points. • All evidence-based and updated every 3 yrs Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
All Inpatient Areas are Represented Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
Nurse Residency Program • Developed at Dartmouth-Hitchcock utilizing simulation • Graduate nurse residency orientation program focused on: • Skill-based learning • Critical thinking • Human factors engineering • Patient safety Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
Nurse Residency Program • Program includes: • Weekly didactic presentations • Weekly structured simulation experiences • Clinical time with a qualified preceptor • Self directed learning materials • Simulated clinical experiences include concepts of patient safety, including human factors, communication, resource management and situational awareness Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
Nurse Residency Program • Dartmouth-Hitchcock was able to: • Decrease orientation time of new nurses from 22-34 weeks to 12 weeks • Decrease turnover by 70% • Increase retention by 75% after 18 months • Decrease vacancy rate to 3% • Eliminate reliance on traveling nurses • Keep nurses for 18-24 months—”For Life” Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
Nurse Residency Program • “Found that a Nurse Residency Program that incorporates simulation increases new grads readiness for independent clinical practice and provides a more predictable process for acquisition of skills” Beyea, von Reyn, Slattery (2007). A Nurse residency program for competency development using human patient simulation. Journal for Nurses in Staff Development 23 (2) 77-82. Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
Meeting the Challenges with Simulation • A Simulator and the Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs) provide you with the opportunity to meet the needs of your learner, whatever they may be • Youdecide on the patient situation in need of interventions and the level of the students • Focus on learner’s needs, not the patient’s • You have the timeto facilitate critical thinking, diagnostic reasoning and problem solving • Patient safety is not an issue • Retention improvesas students see the results of their actions (experiential learning) Medical Education Technologies, Inc.
All SCEs Provide the Possibility for Meeting Multiple Objectives with Multiple Learners
