Discover, Unite, Learn

Welcome to SUN India

We are very happy to welcome you to the 2nd Simulation User Network (SUN) conference in India to be held at St. John’s Medical College, Bengaluru.

The SUN conference was created by Laerdal Medical to facilitate a conversation between users of healthcare simulation. SUN brings together industry leaders and subject matter experts to explore best practices and help advance simulation training across all healthcare disciplines.

A total of four workshops will be conducted for all participants.
Please check Agenda for exact time. 

Workshop1: Teaching skills using manikins and checklists
This workshop would help faculty become familiar with skills teaching using checklists and manikins. Skills proficiency is the process of developing psychomotor skills through repetitive practice to master practical procedures typically using task trainers and simulators. Checklists help standardize teaching and learning standard clinical procedures.

Workshop 2: Evaluating skills using OSCEs
This workshop would help faculty become familiar with using OSCE for skills evaluation. Skills evaluation has been done in a variety of ways. Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is a globally recognized way to standardize skills evaluation.

Workshop 3: Teaching decision making using case studies
This workshop would help faculty to include teaching decision making at every stage in undergraduate medical education. Decision making is a critical skill for the students, without which the psychomotor and soft skills are not of much use. There are a variety of ways to teach students decision-making skills- case studies, decision trees, computer-based problem solving etc.

Workshop 4: Simulation session
This workshop would help faculty to learn running a simulation scenario. Simulation is where a team comes together to manage a particular situation (almost real - except that the patient harm is zero as manikins/ standardized patients are used) and the facilitator/ educator facilitates the team to reflect over the team’s understanding of the situation, scenario management; human behavior, communication, leadership and management during the scenario in a guided, non-judgmental and non-threatening manner
