Presentation Abstract:

While all Clinical Simulation Operations Specialist roles may vary by institution, the fundamental responsibilities remain the same, and the skills needed for SOSs to develop can be taught and developed through standardized training throughout the industry. This webinar will review what the key tasks associated with the daily operations and maintenance of a simulation center are, and what kind of training can hone an SOS's skills. The webinar will provide an overview of WISER's TechSim course as a tool for that development. TechSim is directly aligned with the Society for Simulation in Healthcare's Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist (CHSOS) Blueprint and is eligible for continuing education credits applicable toward re-certification. Participants will get access to the free preview version of the course, as well as a peek inside the broader TechSim curriculum.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain better understanding of core Medical Simulation Technician training needs.
  2. How the Tech Sim training maps to the CHSOS blueprint [Prof dev CHSOS->crs->job].
  3. Present a general understanding of WISER's full Tech Sim course offerings.
