MHA Keystone Center Hosts Simulation-Based Critical Care Education for Members

Posted on October 30, 2018

Pat Posa, RN, BSN, MSA, facilitates a Critical Care Simulation at Western Michigan University School of Medicine, Kalamazoo.In 2017, the MHA Keystone Center hosted five simulations throughout Michigan that focused on sepsis. Due to great success, the MHA Keystone Center added more simulations in 2018 to help Great Lakes Partners for Patients Hospital Improvement Innovation (GLPP HIIN) members address additional critical care issues, particularly delirium, readmissions, ventilator-associated events and interdisciplinary rounding.

Simulations were held Oct. 2 at Central Michigan University College of Medicine Covenant Healthcare Simulation Center, Saginaw; Oct. 18 at Western Michigan University School of Medicine, Kalamazoo; and Oct. 30 at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor Simulation Center. All events were facilitated by clinical subject expert Pat Posa, RN, BSN, MSA, quality excellence leader, and Bruno DiGiovine, MD, MPH, intensivist and medical director. An additional simulation will be held Feb. 5 at Henry Ford Allegiance Health – Center for Health Innovation & Education, Jackson. Registration is free and open to all GLPP HIIN members.

The four-hour sessions include education around the ABCDEF bundle, and three simulations that allow members to participate in a hands-on learning opportunity and be a part of a progressive, multipart scenario. Furthermore, they teach participants how to implement the ABCDEF bundle, improve communication among staff and family members and safely mobilize critically ill patients.
