Exploring and Applying the Guidelines for the Responsible Use of Deception Recorded Webinar
Presented by: Aaron W. Calhoun, MD, FSSH
Description: At present, the current state reflects an opportunity to educate simulation-based educators in the use of existing evidence-based guidelines to avoid negative psychological ramifications among learners and enhance the authenticity of simulations addressing key critical events such as medication error. By unpacking and exploring recent research and guideline-based publications surrounding deception in simulation, a more nuanced understanding can be achieved which can both assist in decision-making and help simulation-based educators avoid negative outcomes. By the end of the session, learners will gain knowledge about the evidence-based guidelines of the use deception to reduce any psychological effects on learners in simulation-based learning experiences; the characteristics of high-risk uses of deception in simulation; and the key decision points (i.e., the “3 D’s) to be considered when choosing whether to employ deceptive elements in educational sessions.
