Ascension Providence Hospital Learners

The Simulation and Education Center is privileged to be able to contribute to your ability to better care for your patients.  For your experience to be as productive as possible, we ask that you prepare for your simulation experience in the same way you should prepare for your work:  be prepared for the skill you will be performing; maintain a professional demeanor always; arrive on time for the training; and treat all models/mannequins as if they were your patients.

No matter if you are completing simple task training, or complex crisis management training, simulation should be an interactive learning experience.  The ability of simulation to provide opportunities for healthcare providers to practice in controlled situations prior to care on “real” patients, is a powerful tool that has been shown repeatedly to not only to limit complications in some patients, but be a superior way for adults to actually learn the information that has been taught. 

Being a safe environment to learn, does not apply only to the patient with which we will eventually treat, but also to the learners themselves.  For simulation to be a truly effective learning modality, learners must be able to make mistakes without fear.  Users of Center are expected to maintain confidentiality following all training events.  No cameras are allowed in the Center, and all video tapes are destroyed within 12 hours of events unless those recording are being used for a purpose expressly agreed upon by the simulation participant and the Center Director/Manager.
