Don’t worry, you can experience all the Sim Week 2020 Streams right here!
It’s Healthcare Simulation Week, which is meant to highlight professionals who use simulation practices to improve safety, efficiency and effectiveness of their jobs. In light of this, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Blackheart Extrication Team and the University of Miami Gordon Center for Simulation teamed up to give an inside look at the type of work they do. At their training center, they recreated a crash scene, where a car was flipped on its side and a person was trapped inside who needed rescuing. While it may look real, it was all just a drill. “Simulation plays a large role in improving the techniques and the hands-on skills we apply to certain situations,” said Captain Michael Ung with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Practice makes perfect, as they say, and that is no different for our first responders.
When seconds can make the difference in a life-saving effort, it is vital they are prepared.

A LOOK BACK AT HOW FAR WE’VE COME
In preparation for SIM Week, I want to take a look back to 2003. At the time, simulations had taken hold in the healthcare education field, and implementation was commonplace, but outcomes research demonstrating effectiveness was inconsistent, scattered, and methodological rigor and focus varied. It was then when the AMEE organization invited our team to address the question: What are the features and uses of high-fidelity medical simulations that lead to effective learning?
We reviewed, and synthesized the existing evidence beginning from 1969, and including nearly 700 articles from five literature databases The result was: “Features and uses of high-fidelity medical simulations that lead to effective learning: a BEME (Best Evidence Medical Education) systematic review,” published 15 years ago in early 2005.
It is an honor to know that the knowledge we shared 15 years ago has become the most cited simulation reference. As we celebrate global simulation professionals like you, I salute you for pushing simulation-based healthcare education forward and for contributing to the body of knowledge with research.
