The TriHealth Center for Simulation and Education provides a variety of clinical improvement and simulation programs. These programs are offered primarily at the Bethesda North Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital locations, however, we also have mobile programs that can be delivered at any clinical site within the TriHealth network. Our team members will closely coordinate and work with your department manager and/or educator to design a unique and specific solution to improve your team members’ clinical performance.
Expanded Physician Skills Training
The Trihealth Center for Simulation & Education offers additional training to physician team members to aid in refreshing skills, both those neglected and those needing a more thorough review. Training sessions are conducted one-on-one with a simulation educator and completed at a pace that fits the need of the requesting physician. CME credit may also be issued.
This course prepares team members for cardiac arrest events inside the hospital, familiarization of equipment used in association with cardiac arrest, and high-performance teamwork strategies.
Professional Nurse Residency (PNR)
The Professional Nurse Residency (PNR) program was revived by the TriHealth Center for Simulation and Education and the TriHealth Nursing: Clinical Support Team (CST) Committee in 2015. This program seeks to improve the transitional experience for recently-graduated nurses and nurses who have been removed from clinical practice for an extended time period.
Competency-based education supplements that include simulation
Gone are the days where annual competencies were achieved with a poster-board and lecture. Use of task-trainers and high-fidelity simulation increases the amount of learning that occurs for individuals while also improving teamwork and communication for your department overall.
This type of training brings the patient simulator into your clinical environment to allow team members to “treat” the patient. Research continues to indicate in situ simulation is preferred by clinicians, improves care, and lowers costs.
The Office Emergencies course is an ideal course for the non-acute, outpatient Trihealth sites where rapid response and Code Blue teams are unavailable. This course applies to RNs, MAs, technicians, and most team members in the office.
New Facility Soft-Opening Trials
As TriHealth continues to be a strong and thriving healthcare organization, new facilities are regularly opening across the region. The Simulation Center offers “trial runs” to assess the readiness of equipment, facilities, and team members to ensure that TriHealth is prepared to meet the needs of our patients on Day 1 and every day that follows.
