Presentation Abstract:

The Avkin team would like to unveil a whole new level of simulation fidelity with their newly released Elite Package. The Elite Package includes all of the educational support your team will need to refine or initiate a formative standardized patient program and the full suite of Avkin wearable simulators. Join us to learn more about how the technological advances of wearable simulators will lead to standardized, translational education for your learners.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Appraise the challenges of manikin based simulation.
  2. Analyze the benefits and limitations of hybrid simulation with the combination of wearable simulators and standardized patients (SPs). 
  3. Evaluate how wearable simulators and standardized patients (SPs) can assist their program in providing consistent experiences to ensure learners can meet performance outcome measurements.

Meet the Presenter:

Amy Cowperthwait, CEO, RN, MSN, CNS, CHSE-A

Founder and CEO at Avkin, Inc.
Beginning her career as an ER nurse, Amy Cowperthwait found her niche when transitioning to simulation at the University of Delaware. A trach simulation gone awry led Amy to develop a solution with a human element and ultimately become a disrupter to the long-standing, manikin-based pedagogy. She founded Avkin in 2015 after years of research and development.
Amy is very proud of the most recent acknowledgment of her leadership and innovation by her peers, earning her CHSE-A earlier this year. In addition to her work with Avkin and the University of Delaware’s Center for Simulation Innovation, Interdisciplinary Education, and Entrepreneurship, Amy is also busy presenting her work through keynote addresses at regional, national, and international events; most recently she presented the endnote at the Ohio Consortium of Nursing Learning Labs Conference (OCONLL).
