Presentation Abstract:

Well designed and executed simulation for health care providers provides an ideal learning platform. There has been work done in understanding learner response(s) to the simulation environment beyond clinical outcomes. We focus on extending that work to explore that response while measuring psychophysiological variables such as stress, anxiety, heart rate and heart rate variability. Our findings from recent studies with paramedicine students lay the groundwork for some interesting findings shared during the presentation. We explore the effect of a physically demanding activity prior to clinical simulation. We also examine the effect of a mindfulness and tactical breathing intervention for students and how it may affect their psychophysiological responses in medical simulation. These are encouraging findings as we continue to refine our methodologies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the stress response of healthcare professional service providers.
  2. Apply the findings of this research to inform your current clinical practice.
  3. Understand the psychophysiological measures that can measure learner responses in clinical simulation.

Alex MacQuarrie, PhD

Senior Lecturer and Researcher at Griffith University
Dr MacQuarrie is a career paramedic, originally from Canada, now living and working in Queensland, Australia. A passion for paramedic wellness sparked him to complete a PhD studying the how the job of paramedic may influence provider health status. Now teaching in the Paramedicine program, he also undertakes research on best simulation practices and how the human physiologic response to those practices can be measured.
