Presentation Abstract:

In 2012, Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS) began discussions to improve inpatient and outpatient safety outcomes in our community and outreach areas by improving accessibility to simulation training. With the support of NGHS's Hospital Administration and funding from the Foundation, the Mobile Simulation Lab came to fruition in February 2020. With the guidance and support of NGHS’s Leadership and Mobile Simulation’s Key Stakeholders, a sustainable operational plan was put in place and implemented. This presentation will discuss the steps involved to build a mobile healthcare simulation lab to increase patient outcomes. The Mobile Simulation Lab will allow Simulation Facilitators and Subject Matter Experts to use simulation scenarios to address low volume, high-risk medical emergencies and enhance emergency preparedness. Simulation allows for hands-on learning in a safe environment. We incorporate critical thinking, evidence-based practices, and professionalism into all simulation experiences. Interdisciplinary simulations enhance the efficiency of communication and teamwork. The Mobile Simulation Program is under the guidance of a group of key stakeholders that have been identified as expert regional leaders in healthcare, research, safety, outreach, and outcomes. These key stakeholders form the Mobile Simulation Core Team. The Mobile Simulation Core Team determines opportunities in the North Georgia region to utilize the Mobile Simulation Lab as a teaching resource. NGHS's Trauma Outreach Program is designed to improve outcomes from trauma and prevent injury in the medical and public community. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is an integral part of NGHS's trauma system. The prehospital trauma system is driven by the goal of getting the right patient to the right place at the right time. Our partnership with EMS ensures that patients receive optimal trauma management. High-quality, consistent emergency care requires that all prehospital personnel in a trauma region understand the trauma triage criteria and destination protocols, treatment protocols, transportation alternatives, and capabilities of trauma facilities in their geographic region.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Introduce how a mobile simulation can increase your impact for your simulation center.
  2. Explain the benefits of a mobile simulation lab business plan.
  3. Create educational opportunities for healthcare professionals.
