An essential component of the simulation experience is the debriefing session. The rooms’ design and multimedia features will allow the students to review and reflect on their actions and identify areas for improvement focusing on evidence-based practice. The simulation and debriefing experiences will allow for the students to connect the dots and put theory into practice in a safe learning environment.
The control rooms and command center are at the heart of both individual patient care and mass casualty simulation experiences. Here, the instructors, simulation specialists and technicians craft dynamic, interactive, real-life scenarios through the creative use of cutting-edge technology, including a hospital incident command system and a video wall. Using sophisticated audiovisual equipment and a video-capturing system, scenarios can be recorded and shared during debriefing. This access to recorded information on their performance during the simulation encounter allows learners to reflect on their performance and identify strengths and areas for improvement in a safe learning environment.
Threaded throughout all the floors and spaces of the Simulation Hospital are telemedicine capabilities and video teleconferencing capabilities, electronic medical records (in all “patient”- care areas), as well as inter-professional education and training capabilities.
