    Description: The professional practice gap in the context of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in healthcare simulation centers around the need for healthcare professionals to effectively integrate and utilize AI technologies within their simulation activities. The gap lies in the insufficient understanding, knowledge, and practical skills among healthcare professionals regarding the application of AI in simulated healthcare scenarios. This webinar aims to address the gap by providing targeted education to enhance the participants' competence in understanding AI and machine learning, and how to leverage AI tools and technologies within the healthcare simulation setting.

    Description: Participants will gain knowledge of how this initiative aims to bridge these gaps by promoting the adoption of globally recognized INACSL standards and the use of culturally responsive simulation. Through culturally responsive simulation-based training, nurses and healthcare professionals in LMICs can gain hands-on experience in accordance with these standards, fostering critical thinking, enhancing clinical competency, and fostering interprofessional collaboration, ultimately leading to improved patient and community outcomes and the elevation of healthcare quality in these regions (Garner et al., 2020; 2023; INACSL, 2021; Ryan et al., 2023; Spies et al, 2017; USAID, 2022).

  • Description: This module explores and illustrates how to live the Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice: Professional Integrity. Through interactive learning activities, such as case studies and matching exercises, the learner will understand the value of professional integrity components including the Healthcare Simulationist Code of Ethics and IPEC Core Competencies. The relationship between professional integrity and psychological safety is explored through the lens of several additional Healthcare Standards of Best Practice. Topics of confidentiality and inclusivity within simulation are also presented, with consideration to individual simulationists as well as simulation programs. An opportunity for the learner to complete a gap analysis is also included within this module which allows learners to specifically focus on how to derive the most value from the core elements of professional integrity.

  • Description: This module emphasizes the importance of prebriefing in simulation education and offers guidelines for creating effective prebriefing practices. Prebriefing, a vital component of simulation education, encompasses preparation and briefing before a simulation event. This module discusses critical prebrief elements, the significance of knowledge about the scenario, learners, cognitive load, and learning objectives in prebriefing and identifies areas of prebrief practice that meet INACSL best practice standards. In this module there are numerous real-life examples of various prebriefing scenarios, as well as interactive prebriefing activities, that allow the learner to assess their own knowledge about prebriefing best practices and evaluate their program for gaps in the endorsement criteria. Additionally, this module provides several resources and tools for prebriefing and assists the learners in assessing and improving their own prebriefing practices.
