Simulation Education Program

Impacting Outcomes Through Simulation

When an unexpected high-risk delivery occurs, both timing and proper training play key roles in outcomes of the newborn and mother. We provide simulation training for both.

Simulated medical experiences have been recognized by the Institute of Medicine and the Joint Commission as an important training modality to increase patient safety.



Excellence in Medical Education

The Women's Hospital Simulation Education Program was developed through an ongoing partnership with Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health NICU Simulation Outreach Team. The program was initiated with the intent to become the premiere resource for simulation training in Southern Indiana.

On-Site simulation training sessions are designed to focus on the care and resuscitation of the newborn or the mother depending on your needs.

High-fidelity manikins are used to provide a safe environment in your hospital, allowing your healthcare professionals to practice high acuity, low frequency events.



Goals of the Simulation Education Program

  • Implement evidence-based practices that result in improved outcomes for newborns and mothers who require resuscitation and stabilization.
  • Address questions that healthcare professionals have about resuscitation and stabilization of newborns and mothers.
  • Customize trainings to the specific needs and goals of the hospitals where trainings are scheduled.


Fee Information

No fee for two on-site training simulation education program sessions per year thanks in part to generous funding provided by the Deaconess Foundation. Additional training is available and may require fees.
