We had an overwhelmingly positive response to the webinar (1-11-2012)
"Adding Outcome Measurements to Simulation for Evaluating Performance" by Susan A. Walsh, PhD RN CCRN, Associate Professor and Director of Simulation Clayton State University.
There were so many questions, yet little time to answer them all. Here’s your chance to continue the conversation with Dr. Walsh. Post your questions here and get a response from Dr. Walsh.
The webinar discussed adding outcome measurements to simulation for assessment of learning or competency. The contributions of scenario validity and reliability to accurate measurement, methods for evaluating available tools, and how to develop a measurement rubric using the MASTER method was introduced. Dr. Walsh also presented a rationale for reaching consensus in simulation education evaluation.has enjoyed nursing as an educator in hospital and academic settings, and performed bedside nursing in intensive care units for many years. Dr. Walsh became involved in simulation education in 2006 at Clayton State University, and incorporated simulation in her doctoral research at Georgia State University, in Atlanta, GA, studying the effects of pattern recognition-based simulation on symptom recognition of myocardial infarction, critical thinking, clinical decision-making, and clinical judgment in nursing students. As Director of Simulation at Clayton State she oversees incorporation of simulation into the nursing curriculum to achieve program outcomes with emphasis placed on reliability and validity of simulations as a platform for competency evaluation.
