Presentation Abstract:

It is 11:30 PM and you are travelling home from a late-night meeting held in a rural part of your state. Out of nowhere a deer jumps in front of your car. You hit the deer, your vehicle leaves the road and you hit a tree. You are injured and in need of ambulance care and transport to the local critical access hospital. As you wait for help to arrive you wonder what kind of training and skills will your healthcare team have? Join Doug Dekker from the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s (UNMC) Simulation in Motion-Nebraska (SIM-NE) program for a 1-hour conversation on training methods to reach rural healthcare providers.

Rural Emergency Medical Services (EMS), critical access hospital staff and other rural healthcare providers do not always have the same training opportunities as their counterparts in more populated areas of states. This lack of training opportunities contributes to a potential lack of confidence in skills performance in day-to-day patient care. The lack of confidence is amplified in high acuity, low frequency patients.
During this webinar various methods of training delivery will be discussed that assist in improving the confidence and competence level of rural healthcare providers. The methods will include things such as on-site simulation, in situ training, virtual simulation, Facebook live presentations and small group Zoom training.

This webinar will highlight some of the advantages and roadblocks of delivering healthcare education to the rural areas of the country.
We will also touch on meeting the education needs of overlooked groups of people that provide healthcare in rural areas of states.
Taking best practice training, in person and/or virtually, right to the rural healthcare providers parking lot, patient care area, training room, living room or even farm tractor can be done. This presentation will discuss several methods that will address the flexibility and ingenuity needed to deliver best practice education to rural healthcare providers.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify two methods of education delivery that will work in rural areas.
  2. Describe potential roadblocks to delivering on-site hands-on education in rural areas.
  3. Explain the need for best practice training in rural areas of the country.
