You are cordially invited to the Drexel University Simulation in Healthcare: Where No One has Gone Before Conference March 2010.
Poised on the cusp of radical transformation of healthcare education called for by the Institute of Medicine’s ‘To Err is Human’ Report;
strategies for teaching clinical practice in a safe, student/healthcare practitioner focused environment with the use of simulation
will be explored. Improving education both within academia and at the bedside is needed. In keeping with the current and future
trends, our conference offers you the highest quality expertise of nationally known simulation educators to help create the simulation
learning environment of tomorrow.
At this conference you will experience:
♦♦ Sessions on the latest use of Human Patient Simulators and Standardized Patient Actors
♦♦ Sessions on lab development and management
♦♦ Sessions on hybrid simulation
♦♦ Poster presentations on cutting-edge simulation innovations
♦♦ Earn up to 18.5 contact hours by attending the pre-conference workshop and general sessions
♦♦ Plus much more!
Take advantage of this opportunity to learn, network, and broaden your horizons. We look forward to seeing you there!

Plenary Realistic Simulation for Interdisciplinary Teamwork Development
Dr. Raemer will describe programs conducted for Labor and Delivery, Operating Room teams, and
other multidisciplinary groups using highly realistic simulation at the Center for Medical Simulation in
Boston. The objectives of these programs include enhancing role clarity, improving communication,
and encouraging team members to “speak up”. Several research studies on communication and on
“speaking up” will enhance the presentation. Various techniques for conducting a fruitful debriefing of
multidisciplinary teams will be offered. Dr. Raemer will attempt to summarize the collective learning from
ten years experience with teamwork simulation.

Plenary Debriefing is an essential tool of Standardized Patient (SP) and manikin-based (HPS) learning
Debriefing is an essential tool of Standardized Patient (SP) and manikin-based learning. It is arguably
the most challenging skill for SPs and clinical simulation instructors to master. More than just giving
feedback, debriefing involves learners and teachers in the process of self-reflection, feedback
processing, empathic inquiry and the desire to learn. This presentation will review practical, advanced
approaches to preparing learners, clinical faculty and standardized patients for the debriefing process.
It will also discuss the use of video in the debriefing process and research into debriefing efficacy.

8:00-9:30am Simulation-Based Assessment: Psychometric Challenges and Future Opportunities John Boulet, Ph.D.
Plenary The use of simulation-based assessments in medicine, nursing, and other health professions is
expanding at a rapid pace. This growth has involved numerous modalities, including computer-based
case simulations, standardized patients, part-task trainers, and electromechanical mannequins. While
the development of new educational programs and related assessment activities can lead to better
trained practitioners, there are numerous challenges, including those associated with finances,
assessment administration logistics, scenario development, scoring, standard setting, and the provision
of meaningful feedback.
This presentation will provide an overview of simulation-based assessment, concentrating on methods
currently employed in high-stakes certification and licensure examinations. The review of the
application of simulation techniques in this arena provides guidance on how to deal with many of the
challenges. The most important aspects are those associated with the provision of valid and reliable
scores. Knowing more about these psychometric challenges, and how to address them, will allow
assessors, even those involved with more formative educational assessment activities, to develop and
administer more defensible tests.
