The Healthcare Simulationist Code of Ethics: What’s In It For Me? Professional codes of ethics are important milestones in the development of any profession. This workshop will first connect historical perspective (and debunk at least one myth) to the creation of the Healthcare Simulationist Code of Ethics. Then, everyone in attendance will help bring the Code to life by grappling with of-the-moment case studies and exploring how the Code can guide and leverage our healthcare simulation practice. Participants will have the opportunity to share and discuss their own challenges and successes, and to consider a vision for future advances in ethical healthcare simulation practice.

New Beginning for Nursing Education? The Future is Still Unwritten.Healthcare educators worldwide are poised to either maintain the status quo or choose to learn, adapt, and change from our collective experience during the 2020-21 pandemic.  Two recent publications are presented in brief.  Both could serve to bolster nurse educators’ efforts in curricular redesign to improve nursing programs. The first, an article titled, Traditional Clinical Outcomes in Prelicensure Nursing Education: An Empty Systematic Review (Leighton et al., 2020 published in Journal of Nursing Education, 2021;60(3):136-142.  The second is a new publication (awaiting release, Leighton et al, 2021) that compares nursing students’ perceptions of learning across traditional clinical, face-to-face simulation, and screen-based simulation learning environments using CLECS 2.0.  Participants will join in breakout room discussions regarding the findings and share their potential vision for the future of nursing education.

Enhancing the human bond in simulation: Engaging with simulated patients in a safe, effective, and confident manner. Working with simulated patients can greatly enhance the authenticity of a simulation and learner engagement.  Yet, there can be challenges related to a lack of resources, knowledge, and skills about how to engage with SPs.  In this interactive session, featuring opportunities for large and small group discussions, we will explore basic components of SP methodology; identify strategies to introduce SPs into your simulation environment or to enhance how you currently work with them; and reflect on how you might apply this information in your setting.

For Tech’s Sake! Keeping things learner-centered – Authenticity in simulation-based education. Even before the great world disruption (Covid, in case you missed that), technology-enhanced learning was a hot trend. Who can integrate the most cool tech & innovate the newest tech tool. With the switch to online learning platforms and other virtual modalities, we are now presented with the challenge of maintaining both a learner-centred environment and what meets our operational constraints. In this presentation, join me to reflect on common myths related to technology-enhanced learning, respond with evidence-based evaluation and re-envision how we approach technology in health professions education going forward.


Open to all involved in the management of technology and teaching of skill competency acquisition within nursing & health science education.
