1 Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine Clinical and Technical Skills Simulation Center
2 DisclaimerThis proposal is a result of conversations within WSU and within and outside of the profession.Credit for ideas presented here includes, but is not limited to: WSU DVM candidates, WSU faculty (Drs. Fransson, Ragle, Farnsworth, Campbell, Nelson, Dernell, Hines, Slinker, Barrington, Gay, Parish, DeBowes, Keegan. . .) and house officers (Marsh, Lund, Lutter, Kennedy, Might, Ackerman, Gablehouse, and many others.) Staff members like Daniel Haley, Rachel Jensen, Lethea Russell, all of anesthesia, and CIS, Influential educational researchers and clinicians outside of WSU (Sarah Baillie, Emma Reed, Kent Hecker, the many participants at INVEST) and the list goes on!
3 the challenges Student and employer expectations Decreased VTH caseloadIncreased student numbersLimited faculty timeGraduates needing to have “life long learning” skills
4 How would we benefit from a clinical and technical skills center? Provide an educational environment for the benefit of veterinary students, house officers, and staff trainees.Encourage innovation in veterinary medical education.Develop and implement research related to technical and clinical skill proficiency.Encourage collaborative educational program development and research projects to enhance our training program.Advance understanding of the benefit of simulation for the practice of veterinary medicine.Provide facilities and staffing for formative and summative assessment events.Contribute to integrated learning efforts.
5 RationaleSurgical Skills Equivalent or Superior to Live Animal Laboratories.Carpenter, et al. Vet Surg 20:373–378, 1991.Greenfield, et al. JAVMA 206:1840–1845, 1995.Griffon, et al, Vet Surg 29:309–316, 2000.Core Component of Human Anesthesia TrainingWSU College of NursingFuture Availability ofLive & Cadaveric Materials?
6 Research/Scholarship American Association of Respiratory Care“…students who learned the CLINICAL topic via thesimulation outperformed students who learned bytraditional lecture.”

19 Simplest Structural renovations to the space Purchase some new and rebuilt equipment to provide spaces for students to work independently on simple models and cadavers(Along the lines of what is currently called the “Open Skills Lab” that happens twice a week)New space is needed to accommodate expansion of LA junior surgery needs with the addition of the USU students
23 Resources Development of simple models Building and maintaining supply of simple modelsAssessing impact and effectiveness of modelsAllocating time for using resources (avoiding free-for-alls and “play time”)
24 More Advanced Technical and clinical skills area Simulation area (Pratt Lounge and mock OR in Radiology renovation)Simple and advanced models for clinical and technical skill trainingHaptic technology
26 Assistant professor of emergency and critical care Daniel Fletcher has led the creation of the simulation vet care center at Cornell University
27 SimMan® MannequinsSimMan® is a portable and advanced patient simulator for team training. With realistic anatomy and clinical functionality, SimMan® provides simulation-based education to challenge and test students’ clinical and decision-making skills during realistic patient care scenarios. The interactive, technologically advanced mannequin includes well-proven software allowing learners to practice the emergency treatment of patients.

29 Resources Specialty knowledge TechnologyUse of simulationEducational methodologyConstant presence in lab area during open timesContinued development of technologies, implementation, etcCareful evaluation of impact/efficacy/effectiveness
30 Investment $250,000 estimated for renovations Equipment costs vary depending on extent of program development ($250,000 estimated for “More Advanced” set-up)Right people in place to build relationships will influence financial and resource costs
31 Leadership and Management Structure Will need to be determinedSimple could be done under existing CIS structure with additional helpMore Advanced requires a new modelThis may be our most critical decision
