The relationship between facilitators' questions and the level of reflection in postsimulation debriefing
Simulation in Healthcare (login required)
Simulation-based education is a learner-active method that may enhance teamwork skills such as leadership and communication. The importance of postsimulation debriefing to promote reflection is well accepted, but many questions concerning whether and how faculty promote reflection remain largely unanswered in the research literature. The aim of this study was therefore to explore the depth of reflection expressed in questions by facilitators and responses from nursing students during postsimulation debriefings.

KAAL-TV
With a shortage of nurses nationwide, healthcare providers are looking for new ways to train the next generation of healthcare workers. More than 90 healthcare professionals from across the Midwest met at Riverland Community College's simulation lab in Austin, Minn., for a conference dedicated to expanding the role patient simulators play in health education. "It's important that we can build and develop realistic scenarios in which our students can learn so that they'll be more prepared after they move into the practicing professional world," said Krista Kipper, program manager for HealthPartners clinical simulation.

Wrong-patient medication errors examined by the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority
PR Newswire
More than 800 wrong-patient medication errors were reported to the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority in a six-month period with errors most common during the transcribing and administration phases and least often during the dispensing and prescribing phases, according to information in the June Pennsylvania Patient Safety Advisory released today. "While often thought to occur only during administration, wrong-patient events were identified across the continuum of the medication-use process from prescribing to monitoring of medications," Matt Grissinger, RPh, manager of medication safety analysis for the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority said. "The events involved a wide range of medications and occurred on various patient care units and departments."
