TriHealth Training Initiatives

The Clinical Training and Testing Center provides a variety of clinical improvement and research protocols as well as training programs. Many of these programs are mobile and can be offered at any of our TriHealth facilities. Our educators will work with you to design a unique and specific solution to improve your team members’ clinical performance that help maintain TriHealth’s status as one of the top 15 U.S. health systems in the nation.


INCEPT™ includes three training modules in which participants will receive hands-on training from our expert, physician instructors. Participants can receive one-on-one instruction and will have a program evaluation completed which will identify the persons’ strengths and weaknesses in each procedure covered.

The Critical Obstetric & Neonatal Care Emergency Procedure Training (CONCEPT™), is a three stage, procedural training program for Health Care Providers (HCPs—OBs, Anesthesia, Nurses). By training participants on these procedures, we can improve patient outcomes by providing necessary education and tools for the providers to be properly trained before being involved in an emergent situation with mother or baby.

 Expanded Physician Skills Training

This course offers additional training to physician team members to aid in refreshing skills, both those neglected and those needing a more thorough review. Training can be on-on-one or in a group and are conducted by a content expert. Click here for more information.

Code Readiness

This course prepares team members to manage a cardiac arrest, using high-performance teamwork strategies and familiarizes team members to the equipment used by the hospital.

Professional Nurse Residency (PNR)

The Professional Nurse Residency (PNR) program was revived by TriHealth Nursing Clinical Support Team (NCST) and TriHealth’s Simulation Center in 2015. This program seeks to improve the transitional experience for new graduate nurses and nurses who have been away from the acute care setting.

Competency-Based Education (CBE)

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 improving teamwork and communication.

In Situ

This type of training brings the patient simulator into your clinical environment to allow team members to “treat” the patient in a familiar setting with familiar resources. Research continues to indicate this type of simulation is preferred by clinicians, improves care and lowers cost.

Office Emergencies

The Office Emergencies course is an ideal course for the non-acute, outpatient or ancillary TriHealth departments where Rapid Response and/or Code Blue teams are not always available. This course applies to RNs, Mas, technicians and other team members within these departments.

Community Outreach Programs

The Simulation Center collaborates with, clinical educators, TriHealth’s EMS Coordinators and clinical experts to provide simulation-based training to our first responders, clinical students and local clinical programs and is the sole TriHealth provider of continuing education for area Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and is accredited by the Ohio Department of Public Safety (#1447).

Paramedic Refresher Program

The Paramedic Refresher Program is designed in conjunction with TriHealth’s EMS Coordinators, to meet the 48 Ohio Approved Paramedic Refresher Training Program Curriculum. This program combines the use of simulation, task-training, case studies and traditional lecture from content experts to review fundamental concepts while introduction emerging trends in EMS care and practice.

Airway Simulation and Assessment Program (ASAP)

This program is a specialty airway course created and delivered exclusively at the request of the southwest Ohio EMS communities. This course presents specific lessons based on the Southwest Ohio Protocol and reported problems encountered by area life squads that focuses on facilitating practical solutions.

Clinical Student Supplemental Simulation Program

The Simulation Center partners with external nursing, EMT and paramedic schools and programs to provide supplemental, real-world training experiences to students in conjunction with other healthcare provider.

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
