Explore Hands-on Training Methods at 2019 MHA Keystone Center Spring Workshop

Posted on March 28, 2019

Register Now Spring WorkshopEvidence reveals that hands-on learning yields greater retention, engagement and understanding of material. In view of that evidence, the 2019 MHA Keystone Center Spring Workshop will focus on the hands-on training methods of simulation and tracers. It will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 30 at The Henry, Autograph Collection in Dearborn.

Simulation-based education is a type of hands-on training that teaches healthcare professionals how to practice communication, clinical reasoning and judgement in a controlled, real-life environment. Tracers are individualized visits that use a walk-through process, following patients from admission to discharge, to evaluate the process across the continuum of care and determine any potential improvement areas. The 2019 MHA Keystone Center Spring Workshop is designed to help healthcare professionals learn new information and skills surrounding these interactive teaching methods and implement the lessons learned into their organization’s culture.

This year’s workshop will feature three statewide and nationally recognized healthcare experts in simulation-based education: Lisa Barker, MD, director of education at Jump Simulation, Peoria, IL, and clinical associate professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria; Pat Posa, RN, BSN, MSA, FAAN, system performance improvement leader, St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor; and Emily McKinney, RN, BSN, sepsis coordinator, St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor.

Registration for the event is open, and those who require lodging may make discounted room reservations at The Henry through May 8. Members with questions may contact the MHA Keystone Center.
