SimBegin

Enhance Simulation Competence

Blended Learning Training for Educators

Prepare to deliver simulation excellence

Adverse events can happen at any time, anywhere.

Delivering the right care is essential. Simulation-based training is vitally important to improving the quality of patient care.

Developed as a collaboration between the SAFER Simulation Centre and Laerdal Medical, SimBegin is a blended learning simulation facilitator course that aims to build competence and confidence in planning, conducting, and debriefing a simulation scenario.

Ideally suited for educators and trainers who are new to simulation-based education this course sets out to deliver a practical, digitally enabled solution so organizations can quickly be on their way to implementing quality simulation training.

The SimBegin Curriculum

SimBegin requires a class size of six (6) participants. The course utilizes self-directed e-learning and online workshops adaptable to fit any learner’s time schedule. Consisting of three modules, this entry level instruction allows medical, nursing, and paramedical professionals learn the basics of simulation in healthcare and debriefing.

  • Module 1: E-learning - Simulation Methodology
  • Module 2: Online workshops - Briefing and Debriefing
  • Module 3: Instructor-led workshops - Implementation

Module 1: E-learning - Simulation Methodology

This module is entirely self-directed and introduces:

  • Medical Simulation
  • Patient Safety
  • Circle of Learning

Estimated time: 2-3 hours

Module 2: Online workshops - Briefing and Debriefing

This module combines self-directed e-learning with immersive online workshops with a simulation expert:

  • How to deliver high-quality and structured pre-briefing
  • How to utilize structured CORE debriefing

Estimated time: 3 workshops with duration of 2-3 hours each

Module 3: Instructor-led workshops - Implementation

This module combines self-directed e-learning with practical simulation scenarios:

  • Best practice sample videos and facilitator resources
  • Plan, brief and debrief scenarios
  • Plan implementation of simulation training in own organization

Estimated time: 1 full training day

SimBegin Mentoring Program

A mentoring program can be added to the initial SimBegin course. Mentoring provides a guided process where the facilitators develop their skills and the quality of their simulations. The mentoring program is based on SAFER's experiences focusing on areas critical to success for simulation-based training.

These factors include:

  • practicing and refining skills
  • sharing experiences with peers
  • receiving feedback

The mentoring program consists of 4 workshops and mentoring meetings provided over 16 hours with time between each workshop that allows learners to practice their simulation skills.

Workshops include:
