Creating Robust Simulation Scenarios for Local Contexts

Speakers: Assoc Prof Michelle Kelly and Ms Sabrina Koh

Workshop Level: Intermedia​​te​

Creating simulation scenarios based on local clinical issues or country-specific health priorities often confer greater benefit. However, creating simulation scenarios can be a challenging prospect. 

Using a set scenario format, based on sound educational principles, ensures inclusion of the key elements for simulation-based education. Collaborating in the design process with others fosters creativity and unique scenarios, as each person brings their lived experiences ‘to the table’.
Akin to a Community of Practice (Lave & Wenger, 1991), those with more experience in the task at hand can support others with varying experience to extend and grow capacity in creating simulation scenarios of relevance. This approach, shown to be successful in other contexts (Kelly & Fry, 2013), will be the method used in this workshop.

Two experienced simulation educators from two different countries will facilitate workshop participants to create and refine meaningful scenarios that can be implemented back in the clinical or educational setting.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Have a greater understanding of the key elements for designing robust simulation scenarios.
  2. Have developed a unique simulation scenario based on their own and others’ clinical experiences.
  3. Be more skillful in adapting or refining other scenarios for different contexts.
