Presentation Abstract:

Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialists currently face a significant deficiency in training standards. Research suggests that Simulation Operations Specialists roles are clearly defined but there is limited research on how to train Simulation Operations Specialists once in the role. This pilot study aims to determine how the Learn, See, Practice, Prove, Do, Maintain Framework is utilized with procedural task trainers to train Simulation Operations Specialists. Specifically, this study will evaluate the Learn, See, Practice, Prove, Do, Maintain Framework for future training, efficiency, proficiency, and competency. 

To test the framework, eleven Simulation Operation Specialists were selected to participate in the Learn, See, Practice, and Prove phases of the framework using TraumaMan System and BT Inc. IV Arm. Each specialist received setup and breakdown guides, demonstration videos, practice sessions, and a prove session.

To evaluate the eleven Simulation Operations Specialists, a task trainer checklist was utilized during the prove session. The results evaluated proficiency, competency, and efficiency of the trainees to determine the degree of knowledge and skills gained during the training session. Moreover, the results suggested that the Learn, See, Practice, Prove, Do, Maintain Framework is a valid framework to utilize to train current and future Simulation Operations Specialists.

The results reinforce the importance of training Simulation Operations Specialist. Further research is needed to continue to strengthen the standardization of training Simulation Operations Specialist using the Learn, See, Practice, Prove, Do, Maintain Framework.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Implementing the Learn, See, Practice, Prove, Do, Maintain Framework (LSPPDM) Framework for Simulation Operations Specialist (Sim Ops)Training.
  2. Analyzing the results that have been provided from utilizing the LSPPDM Framework.
  3. Recognize the challenges and limitations in the LSPPDM Framework
