2017 Resource Fair

Schedule of Events
Kickoff - SAC Auditorium - 2:00 - 2:25 PM

Something for Everyone in Simulation
Healthcare simulation is a range of activities that share a broad, similar purpose – to improve the safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of healthcare services. This presentation will review the various simulation–based education, assessment, research, and systems integration activities available at UTHSC.
Simulation Series

Simulation-Improving Patient Safety - 2:30-3:10 PM

In recent years, there has been an emphasis on examining healthcare system processes for identifying latent safety errors and improving performance of healthcare providers. This session will illustrate how various modalities of simulation can be used to proactively discover these risk factors, to improve the performance of health care teams and to make patient care safer.

Roles, Realities, and Manikins - 3:15-3:55 PM

The pedagogy of using simulation as an educational modality has evolved greatly in recent years. What was once a “whim” is now backed by educational theory and best practice. In this session, participants will experience each phase of a simulation session and gain a better understanding of how simulation enhances the educational process.

Themed Presentations

Education-Focused Panel - 2:30-3:10 PM

Learn about innovative educational activities and learn how you can do this too! The education-focused panel has 3 sets of “panelists” - one set represents a project where faculty and librarians collaborated to develop and use a video game in an online health informatics course; one set represents a project where faculty and academic technology consultants collaborated to conduct an “OSCE-type” simulation incorporating standardized patients (patient proxies) using Zoom technology; and the third are some of UTHSC’s academic technology consultants who will speak to how you can incorporate innovative approaches in your educational activities.

Research-focused Panel: aka-Things you Wanted from the Office of Research but were Afraid to Ask for! - 3:15-3:55 PM

The overarching goal of the Office of Research is to foster an outstanding environment of support for UTHSC researchers on all its campuses. Highlights of a few key changes are the planned unification of all existing pre- and post-award functions into an Office of Sponsored Programs; recent enhancements to Institutional Core capabilities; new CORNET award opportunities and the launch of Pure (UTHSC Experts and Funding Discovery Module); and the opening of an Office of Scientific Writing. Dr. Steven Youngentob, Senior Associate Vice Chancellor for Research, will provide a brief overview of these changes. His summary will be followed by an audience directed Q & A session. In addition to Dr. Youngentob, Dr. Richard Redfearn (Office of Scientific Writing), Dr. Tiffany Seagroves (Intuitional Cores) and Ms. Lisa Youngentob (Office of Research Development) will be available to answer questions. This session will provide valuable up-to-date information for the research community and provide attendees with the opportunity to learn more about important resources.
