Why do our simulation programmes ask non-technical clinical faculty to select, utilise, maintain, and replace technology components?

Despite the tremendous advances in technology, acceptance by the end user is not a foregone conclusion. Behavioural intent to use a technology can present a large barrier to an innovations effective and efficient implementation. This workshop explains the use of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and how a skilled and competent Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist can overcome barriers to technology implementation.

The workshop will also explore why a dedicated full-time simulation technology specialist is a requirement to long-term simulation programme success. Examples of where to find and train qualified support specialists, as well as gain administrative investment into the emerging profession will be provided.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Learn what technology adoption models are paramount to your institutions’ adoption of simulation.
  2. Understand what staff positions are necessary for successful operation of simulation.
  3. Gain valuable tools for creating staff positions related to technology operations, as well as where to find and train this unique job.
