Faculty and students from Daytona State’s College of Health and Public Services will provide demonstrations and tours of the college’s state-of-the-art health-care simulation labs for society members from around the globe attending the 13th annual International Meeting of Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) conference taking place Jan. 26-30 in Orlando.
From 9 a.m. to noon on Sunday, Jan. 27, conference participants will convene at Daytona State’s Health Sciences Hall (Bldg. 320, Room 321) on the Daytona Beach Campus, 1200 W. International Speedway Blvd. They will be welcomed by Daytona State President Carol W. Eaton, then tour three separate simulation labs, as well as observe a “field simulation” demonstration using a patient simulator and one of the college’s newly donated training ambulances.
Demonstrations will focus on how Daytona State uses human patient and emergency care simulators in its nursing, respiratory care, occupational and physical therapy, emergency medical services and continuing education for health-care professionals programs. Each semester, Daytona State students take advantage of the immersive learning experience offered by more than a dozen of the college’s patient simulators, giving them advanced preparation prior to their required clinical work in a true-to-life health-care setting.
IMSH is the world’s largest conference dedicated to health-care simulation, learning, research and scholarship. More than 3,000 educators, researchers and exhibitors representing 40 countries are expected to attend this month’s conference.
