Many simulation programs conduct simulation-based training ‘in situ’ – in the actual clinical environment. Conducting simulation in situ entails a unique set of opportunities and challenges.  A specific challenge is the ability to reliably capture simulation video in the clinical environment, and subsequently use that video during debriefing.

In this highly-interactive workshop, faculty from the Seattle Children’s Hospital Learning and Simulation Center (LSC) share their experience conducting in situ video-enhanced debriefing. Through a series of interactive sessions, the LSC team will teach the technical skills required to conduct in situ video-enhanced debriefing.  Specific topics will include simulation videography, the importance of integrating learning objectives and videography, and the use of both high and low-tech solution to in situ video-enhanced debriefing.

The workshop features the Seattle Children’s Synchronous Mobile Audio-visual Recording Technology (SMART) Cart, winner of the 2014 IPSSW 1st place award for Technology Innovation. It was presented by Taylor Sawyer at the International Pediatric Simulation Symposium and Workshops. Workshop participants will leave with skills, knowledge, and materials that they can apply in their own practice.
