PeriopSim - Surgical Training and Assessment for the OR Team (1090-004322)
CE Hours: 0.25 Session Type: SimVentors
PeriopSim is a surgical training and assessment platform that combines virtual simulations, neuro education and game based learning to save time. When experience is in short supply or too expensive/challenging to attain, simulation training is an ideal option. Pilots have been using simulation for decades and it is a gold standard for certifying and re-certifying competence to fly some of the most complex planes in the world. Healthcare education is catching up. A National Simulation Study (https://www.ncsbn.org/685.htm) was conducted and the study provides substantial evidence that up to 50% simulation can be effectively substituted for traditional clinical experience in all prelicensure core nursing courses under conditions comparable to those described in the study. It is a study that we use as a foundation in describing how PeriopSim can benefit educators in terms of flexibility in education and timesaving. Additionally we have been the subject of a number of research studies that you can find more information about here: https://www.periopsim.com/research/ PeriopSim takes live video footage of a 1 hour long procedure and creates a Virtual Simulation that is 10 minutes long giving a 6x in time savings for that experience. 1 Experience Hour = 10 minutes in simulation with PeriopSim. Prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic, PeriopSim has been used by Educators in Departments of Surgical Services in hospitals across Canada and the US for the last few years. Educators will use PeriopSim to improve confidence and competence of perioperative RNs and STs during their orientation curriculum. PeriopSim can be combined with other learning tools such as Periop 101, videos, live simulations and preceptor job shadowing. PeriopSim is used to bridge the gap between classroom and the OR. There are over 35 Virtual Simulation Experiences on the platform and over 15,000 of these experiences have been completed by learners at our customer sites. To build these Experiences we’ve partnered with our customers at leading healthcare facilities to record the procedures, capture instrumentation and materials. We combine these assets with with evidence based guidelines from leading sources including AORN and ORNAC. The Educator and Surgeon working with us confirm the quality of the module prior to release. We currently have a large pipeline of modules that are at different stages of development and we provide releases on a regular basis.
