Through an initiative of the Anesthesia Department- Acute Pain service, an innovative educational simulation workshop took place on Thursday, November 1, 2012 at LAU Medical Center-Rizk Hospital in collaboration with the Nursing Continuing Education office and LAU's Clinical Skills and Simulation Center. Registered Nurses, both staff & Head of units, and LAU Nursing Students were divided into groups. Each group participated in an introductory session, followed by a high-fidelity simulation experience in which the group interacted in an in-patient setting with colleagues, a simulated patient in an acute condition, and the simulated patient's family. Debriefing of the simulation session and a take-home educational message on the specific case scenario management, patient safety, and team communication followed. At the end of the workshop, each participant took a short test to assess the learning outcomes achieved and submitted an evaluation of the complete experience. That day’s simulation experience was enriching to both the participants and the planners. LAU Medical Center-Rizk Hospital and LAU look forward to further workshops in which evidence-based practice and quality care of patients and their families are emphasized in a novel educational experience using simulation.
