Simulation Education Program
Impacting Outcomes through Simulation
When an unexpected high-risk delivery occurs, both timing and proper training play key roles in outcomes for the newborn and mother. The Women's Hospital provides on-site simulation trainings for both instances.
Simulated medical experiences lead to improved staff confidence and knowledge retention due to hands on experiences, ultimately increasing patient safety.
Excellence in Medical Education
The Women's Hospital Simulation Education Program was developed through an ongoing partnership with the NICU Simulation Outreach Team at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health. We are here to help meet the needs of our community hospitals in Southern Indiana and the tri-state.
On-site simulation training sessions are designed to focus on the care and resuscitation of the newborn and/or 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 high risk obstetrical needs and newborns who require resuscitation and stabilization.
- Address questions that health care professionals have regarding high risk obstetrical situations and stabilization of newborns.
- Customize trainings to the specific needs and goals of the hospitals where trainings are scheduled.
No fee for on-site simulation education sessions.
Thanks to generous funding for simulation manikins provided by the Deaconess Foundation
