By definition, disasters and mass casualty incidents overwhelm health care resources. Although multiple modalities for simulating MCI scenarios exist; the ideal modality for education and drilling of mass-casualty incident response is not established. This course will discuss past Active Shooter and MCI events, and lessons learned from each. Learners will leave equipped with the tools needed for planning and executing a successful event.
Simulation has been utilized to enhance teamwork, interpersonal and communication skills in healthcare. TeamSTEPPS® (Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety) is an evidence-based teamwork system aimed at optimizing patient outcomes by improving communication and teamwork skills. This interactive course will provide framework on utilizing simulation in TeamSTEPPS training for inter-professional teams.

This course offers insight in the role of medical students as part of faculty in advanced simulation. Three experienced medical students from CAMES and the head of research will introduce the benefits of working with medical students to run simulations in co-operation with medical experts as faculty. This course focuses on interactive learning, and participants will prepare and run their own scenario actively using medical students as faculty.
Healthcare providers in rural areas struggle to access high fidelity simulation. The Palmetto Health-University of South Carolina developed a mobile simulation operation to overcome these obstacles & improve safety across the state via our SimCOACH™ program. This course will discuss the development and implementation of our mobile, multidisciplinary, statewide simulation-based training program delivered to birthing hospitals in South Carolina.
Surgical Train the Trainer provides an overview of the Lapco surgical training model. Participants will review best practices in coaching delivery, practical coaching rehearsal in a skills lab setting, as well as participate in an interactive discussion of effective hands-on and interactive training techniques specifically focused on the surgical environment.
The incorporation of unique simulation-based scenarios, as well as evidenced based practice, and current literature support this one-day immersive patient safety program. This interprofessional experience will provide the learner with understanding and materials to complete a PDSA Quality Improvement project in the hospital and outpatient setting.
