Alberta Health Services, Sunridge Campus to Employ Leading-Edge Medical Simulation Management Technology
Turnkey technology will assist learners at Alberta Health Services in providing optimal care to patients
Exton, Pa (April 23, 2013) Alberta Health Services, Sunridge Campus in Calgary, Alberta, Canada aims to improve patient safety, reduce medical errors, and enhance healthcare delivery with the help of a leading-edge, turnkey medical simulation management solution. Through quality healthcare training, the institution will perform simulation sessions and score, schedule, page, record, bookmark for debriefing, and more. When combined, these tools will help learners attain diagnostic and procedural competence for improved patient care.
This simulation solution allows learners to develop skills without running the risk of harming actual patients, and to recognize and learn from their mistakes during debriefing. Learners can repeat procedures as often as necessary in order to enhance bedside manner, increase competency, and optimize clinical outcomes.
Another benefit of this advanced simulation management solution is that it enables learners to gain experience with various types of patients and cases that they may not regularly encounter. This is important for confidence building. When it's time to work with live patients, learners will be better able to collaborate and provide optimal care.
Alberta Health Services uses a mix of computer-controlled mannequin systems and specially prepared actors to work closely with educators to create realistic learning experiences. Learning outcomes are established with the clinical educators, including clinical knowledge and skills, teamwork, communication skills, and crisis management.
Education Management Solutions’ (EMS) leading-edge medical simulation management solution holds the key to helping learners reduce patient risk. Faculty at Alberta Health Services will have these tools in-hand for training session recording, review, and learner assessment to more effectively avert safety risks with actual patients.
