138 Journal Club Podcast October 2021

Ben and Vic kicked off this episode talking about some upcoming healthcare simulation events – NYSIM Hot topics virtual symposium October 22nd (USA) , The ASPIH ‘Moving Upstream’ conference 8th – 10th November (UK), and the RCPSC 2021 Simulation Summit, November 4th and 5th (Canada) 

We gave some shout outs to friends of Simulcast who’ve joined us in Twitter conversations and more! 

We enjoyed reading Team debriefings in healthcare: aligning intention and impact from Michaela Kolbe and colleagues – a must read for those interested in translating their simulation debriefing skills to clinical debriefings. We welcomed the launch of the International Journal of Healthcare Simulation and reviewed Dogan et al. A form of mental simulation with significant enhancements enabling teamwork training. (link not yet available)  

We appreciated the efforts of the Norwegian anaesthetic group in auditing their practice at a national level – Is simulation-based team training performed by personnel in accordance with the INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation? – a qualitative interview study 

We often think about simulation as a strategy to achieve patient safety, but this month we reviewed a simulation-based curriculum for post graduate medical trainees aimed at teaching about quality improvement and patient safety – thank you Jacob Luty and colleagues. 

Lots of great listening and food for thought  

Looking forward to next month !
