Research grant opportunity
Aug. 22 - Sept. 21
The Society for Simulation in Healthcare is offering up to two $5,000 grants to support health-related simulation-based pilot studies carried out by Principal Investigators who have fewer than five years of experience in simulation-based research endeavors. Research representing appropriate quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-method approaches are equally welcome. We seek novel studies that have strong potential for a positive impact on healthcare delivery processes and outcomes through, for example, education, assessment, usability testing, or system integration.

Wake Tech celebrates new high-tech health sciences building
News & Observer
One of the things Anna Pocher has learned while studying to become a paramedic — along with anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, rescue-scene management — is that she learns by doing. "It's not just that you know what to do," said Pocher, 20, who is halfway to a Wake Technical Community College Emergency Medical Science degree. "It's that you know that you can do it." Students such as Pocher will get more chances to practice the jobs they're hoping to land since the school opened a new building on its Health Sciences Campus in Raleigh, which is outfitted to resemble as closely as possible the settings where they will work.

  MammaCare's new CBE Simulator - Trainer

Is a self-administered, palpation training platform that produces and validates breast examination competencies. The computer's operating program is based on published quality standards examination protocols. It is used to train clinicians who perform or will be performing clinical breast exams. A digital “clinical instructor” assesses progress and provides corrective feedback.

SIM-ND provides high-tech training tool for rural medical professionals
Pierce County Tribune
For years, smaller critical access hospitals in North Dakota would need to send their staff to one of the state's four biggest cities for training. Thanks to SIM-ND (Simulation in Motion-North Dakota), that's no longer the case.

Telemedicine: A community perspective
By Tracy Stanley
Developed so doctors could monitor astronauts in space, the concept of telemedicine isn't a new one. What has changed, however, is the technology that now allows global access to this way of practicing medicine. Physicians are starting to appreciate the worth and importance of being accessible to remote communities via video conference. The purpose of this article is not to discuss the mechanics of telemedicine but rather to underscore its value to the remote communities it serves.
