Great Lakes Partners for Patients Hospital Improvement Innovation Network Sepsis Simulation Train the Trainer

Friday, October 4, 2019 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
During the Train the Trainer event, subject matter experts Pat Posa, RN, BSN, MSA and Emily McKinney, BSN, RN will use hands-on learning scenarios and feedback to train and educate hospital members on early identification of sepsis; appropriate testing and screen for sepsis; and appropriate care of a septic patient. The overall goal is to help hospital educators bring the learning back to their facility and perform their own simulations. It will be required for registrants to have knowledge of sepsis and sepsis criteria.

Posa and McKinney will teach on what is simulation, ensuring realism, fidelity and how to prepare, practicing facilitating as well as debriefing with good judgment. The simulation training will cover the appropriate identification and care for a patient presenting with sepsis in either the emergency department, intensive care unit or a transfer from another facility. The activities will help improve skills, develop critical thinking and apply effective teamwork and communication strategies.

The Great Lakes Partners for Patients Hospital Improvement Innovation Network recommends sending staff who can bring the education back to their facilities, such as educators, simulation staff, critical care bedside staff and emergency department staff.

Two sessions are available, and the content of both is identical. Members can choose the time that is most convenient. The morning session will run from 8 a.m. – noon and the afternoon session will run from 1– 5 p.m. Simulation space is limited, so register as soon as possible to secure a seat.  Pre-work will be emailed after registration to review prior to the event.
