Course Description

Simulation is emerging as an essential technique for teaching in Neurology, facilitating instruction on the diagnosis and management of both common and unusual neurological disorders. Both speakers have substantial experience in applying simulation-based learning in Neurology and will discuss the current state and future potential of this approach.

Learning Objectives

  1. Consider the potential scope of simulation-based learning in neurology
  2. Examine the impact of simulation-based learning on systems-based practice, patient safety and quality of care
  3. Appraise the current role of simulation-based learning in neurology education

AR Company Recommendations

  1. Vuzix
  2. Xpert eye via Google glass

  7. www.mededportal.org
    1. Specifically when you search for the keywords "neurology simulation" (www.mededportal.org/action/doSearch?AllField=neurology+simulation) you are getting some high-quality and peer-reviewed simulation scenarios. It's also a great website for a lot of other free and peer reviewed educational material
  8. www.ssih.org/simconnect
    1. this is a great, diverse and interprofessional platform hosted by the Society of Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) to help with networking with other "simulationists" that also contains a registry of various simulation case scenarios
  9. "Simulation in Acute Neurology" (www.elsevier.com/books/simulation-in-acute-neurology/9780323551342)
    1. this is an entire book by productive physicians and "simulationists" out of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN Drs. Sara Hocker and Eelco Wijdicks that offers a whole variety of neurology simulation scenarios - downside: it's pricey for a relatively short book
  10. Website of UAB Office of Interprofessional Simulation (www.uab.edu/simulation/for-facilitators/resources/forms-resources) has a section labeled "Forms and Resources" that provides you with a template for scenario creation and a nice framework on how to conduct a structured debriefing.
