Fall 2022 Simulation Schedule

IPE Simulations

As part of our two-year interdisciplinary/interprofessional curriculum, the intention is for all learners to have a hands-on team experience to apply and practice the IPEC Competencies. A menu of options is being developed to address the many unique areas of expertise, or 'cylinders of excellence' among our learners.  

Although learning objectives will be the same, all students will not participate in the same exact simulation.  Learners are encouraged to contact their program directors for additional details. 

The hybrid training program will provide collaborative, interdisciplinary coursework via web-based and onsite didactic course material, simulation exercises, reflection activities, and assignments to improve the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of students from multiple health disciplines in delivery of Community Centered Care. In these educational activities, learners will engage in interactive learning with other health profession students and community partners.

2S-LGBTQ+

2S-LGBTQ+ Simulation

(Monthly)

Enrollment for FA22 is now open. Register today!

This course is intended to be completed after Diversity Ally training is completed, and before participation in interprofessional clinical activities.

Proposed Goal: The goal of this project is to engage the 2S-LGBTQ+ community as active team members in course design, content delivery, and active reflection to prepare health professions students to be collaborative and patient-centered when delivering team-based care to the community.

Advisory Board: A collaboration of community representatives, subject-matter experts, interested allies, students, support agencies, practitioners, educators, and administrators.

Intended Project Outcomes:

1. Increase in the number of health professions learners receiving content related to 2S-LGBTQ+ clients/patients

2. Prepare learners to engage with clients/patients from the 2S-LGBTQ+ community

Breaking Bad News

Breaking Bad News Simulation 

Enrollment for FA22 is now open. Limited slots are available. Email Kylie-Pethoud@ouhsc.edu to sign up!

Difficult situations, and difficult conversations, require certain patient/family-centered communication techniques.  This simulation will allow learners a chance to practice team communication skills while exploring scenarios unique to delivery bad news following a health crisis. 

Proposed goal: the goal of this project is to help students engage in difficult conversations with patients in a team setting to prepare health professions students to be collaborative and patient-centered when delivering team-based care to the community.

Intended Project Outcomes:

  • Increase in the number of health profession learners working in teams to deliver difficult news to clients/patients in a patient-centered manner.
  • Prepare learners to engage in difficult conversations with clients/patients.

Poverty

Poverty Simulation

(Monthly)

Enrollment for FA22 is now available. Register today!

According to 2019 Census Bureau data, at least one in seven Oklahomans were living below the poverty line. Join us as we learn what it’s like to try to live a month at or below the poverty line. We will discuss what that means for providers and how to deliver team-based, patient-centered care for one of Oklahoma’s most vulnerable populations.

SAME/FAME

Self-Advocate as Medical Educator / Family-Advocate as Medical Educator (SAME/FAME) 

(Twice a month)

Enrollment for FA22 is now available. Register today!

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their caregivers and families, require unique communication techniques that are patient-centered.  This innovative team-based simulation allows learners to be taught directly by individuals (self-advocates) or family members (family-advocates) in a safe environment regarding proper team-based communication.

Proposed Goal: The goal of this project is to engage community members with intellectual and developmental disabilities as active team members in course design, content delivery, and active reflection to prepare health professions students to be collaborative and patient-centered when delivering team-based care to the community.

Intended Project Outcomes:

1. Increase in the number of health professions learners receiving content related to clients/patients with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

2. Prepare learners to engage with clients/patients with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

Social Determinants of Health: Health Literacy (SDOH)

Social Determinants of Health: Health Literacy (SDOH)

(Monthly)

Enrollment for FA22 is now available. Register today!

This project is aimed at reducing readmission rates for patients with Sepsis as well as teaching students how to effectively address the social determinants of health in a health literate way. Many times, the care that we give the patient is above their level of understanding – through this simulation and hospital experience working with Sepsis patients, it is our goal to cultivate effective healthcare communicators!  

Students will have the opportunity to work in an interprofessional team consisting of nursing, medicine, social work, PT/OT, pharmacy, and nutrition. Through simulations and hospital experience, students will employ social determinants of health and health literacy screenings to help identify potential barriers in patient care. Upon identification, students will be trained to effectively communicate those barriers to ensure the patient understands how to overcome them upon discharge.

Unity Clinic Leadership

Unity Clinic Leadership Simulations 

Dates coming soon

Reserved for Unity Clinic Executive Council and our Faculty/Staff preceptors, this simulation will allow our team leaders a chance to orient to the clinic for the semester.

Administrative Leadership

Administrative Leadership Simulation

Championed by the College of Nursing, this virtual simulation prepares learners for unique scenarios of administrative leadership.  Past scenarios have included a measles outbreak and a covid exposure.

Mental Health

Mental Health Simulations 

Dates TBD

In partnership with College of Nursing and School of Social Work, these simulations will provide learners an opportunity to practice patient communication skills with other health professionals.  Case scenarios vary and simulated activities are delivered using zoom.  Team-based debrief is included.
