How to Use Simulation to Mitigate Patient Risk During Staff Onboarding

Join us for our next Virtual SUN as we showcase how one hospital puts its new interns through a rigorous one-month simulation program before putting them at the bedside.

Special guest speaker Dr. Mark C. Henry, along with other members of the Stony Brook staff, will join us for a live interview followed by an audience Q&A.

While the program we’ll be discussing focuses on onboarding interns, the lessons you’ll learn during this interview can also be applied to nurse transition to practice, as well as staff transitions between departments.
