SCV Engineering in Medicine and Biology Chapter
with Tour of the Goodman Immersive Learning Center, the Stanford School of Medicine

Speaker/guide: Sandra J. Feaster, RN, MS, MBA, Stanford University
Time: Optional no-host dinner at 6:15 PM; Presentation and tour at 7:30 PM

Place: Dinner at Stanford Hospital Cafeteria; Talk/tour at Stanford University Medical School, Room M-114, Stanford
RSVP: not required

The last decade has seen explosive growth of technologies and applications of simulation in healthcare.? This growth was based on a number of prior, often independent, developments of device and curricula.? There is now a wide diversity of simulation methodologies ranging from low tech ones (verbal simulation, role-playing, using food products — such as beef hearts and chickens– for practice) to higher tech ones (part-task trainers, computerized mannequins) to truly high-tech ones (virtual reality).? These have been linked to an equally wide diversity of applications.
This talk will provide an overview of the modalities and applications of simulation . There will be a brief review of some of the history and why healthcare is different from the analogous industries that have been used as models of simulation (aviation, nuclear power, spaceflight, military).
There will also be a detailed tour of the new 28,000 sq. ft. Goodman Immersive Learning Center in the LKSC.? This center is the newest of 4 dedicated simulation centers at Stanford and its associated hospitals and opened its doors for teaching in late 2010.? Stanford is one of the world leaders of all varieties of simulation in healthcare.
