    Second Annual UNM Simulation Conference, August 5, 2017


    banner

    UNM College of Nursing Simulation Lab will present instructional methods in a one day conference workshop scheduled for August 5, 2017. This conference will be held at the UNM Health Sciences Center Campus in Albuquerque, NM.

    This is an opportunity to network, share and explore different approaches of conducting simulation. The workshops are designed for all levels of healthcare professionals who are interested in improving their simulation skills.

    From 2016 Simulation Conference Attendees:

    "This will open many new discussions on how we can improve our use of sim, expand our vision and what resources we can draw from."

    "I now have a clearer understanding of the process of establishing a program of simulation."

    "I learned a great deal more about national standards."





    Mary Anne Rizzolo

    Mary Anne Rizzolo's, EdD, RN, FAAN, ANEF, career has focused on exploring new technologies, determining how they can inform and educate nurses, operationalizing their cost-effective delivery, and disseminating their value for education and practice. She pioneered the development of screen-based simulations that won national and international awards, and created one of the first websites in the world offering continuing education, journal articles, and networking opportunities for nurses. She has delivered over 250 national & international presentations, has served on many national committees and advisory boards. Dr. Rizzolo just completed her term on the Society for Simulation in Healthcare's Board of Directors and recently chaired the committee that developed the SSH Academy.

    During her tenure at the National League for Nursing, Dr. Rizzolo was the staff liaison for the original simulation research project with Pamela Jeffries, the SIRC development project, the ACES unfolding cases, vSim projects, the PI on the project to explore the use of simulation for high stakes assessment and more. She is the founder of the Leadership Development Program for Simulation Educators and continues to consult on several simulation projects for the NLN and others.

    This is an opportunity to network, share and explore different approaches of conducting simulation. The workshops are designed for all levels of healthcare professionals who are interested in improving their simulation skills.

    At the completion of the event, the participants will be able to:

    1. Explore innovative uses of simulation that will provide participants with new ideas to implement in their practice.
    2. Describe methods to improve the use of simulation as a teaching strategy.
    3. Describe different components of evaluation within simulation.
    4. List strategies to implement evidence based practice at the participant’s simulation lab.

    Call for Abstracts for Poster presentations:
    The poster presentations provide an opportunity for faculty and simulation staff to share their knowledge, implementation strategies, simulation scenarios, integration into the curriculum, and evaluation strategies and results.

    We are specifically interested in, but not limited to, posters on:

    • Evaluation of Simulation
    • OB-GYN Simulation
    • Hospital Based Simulation
