Live-Stream Simulation Training
On September 22, 2017, the modular course Live-Stream Simulation Training was held at the Federal State-Financed Educational Institution of Postgraduate Professional Education «The Saint Petersburg Postgraduate School of Nursing» under the Federal Medical Biological Agency within the framework of international partnership with South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences.
The seminar was attended by students of the South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences XAMK under the guidance of the lecturer Marja-Liisa Siren-Huhtinen as well as by the Russian and Kazakh participants of the internship program Change Management in Healthcare Organizations as for State-of-the-Art Nursing Care.
The students from the South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences (Kotka Campus) under the guidance of the lecturer, the head of the XAMK Simulation Laboratory Jussi Hanninen participated in the modular course remotely.
The program of the modular course was devoted to the issues of continuing professional medical education:
- Russian and Finnish trends
- Technologies of simulation-based and mixed training
- Case-based technologies in medical simulation
The work of the educational modular course was opened with a welcome address by Irina Bakhtina, the Chief Specialist on Nursing Management of the FMBA of Russia, the Chief Specialist on Postgraduate Education within the St. Petersburg healthcare system, the Dean of the St. Petersburg Postgraduate School of Nursing of the FMBA of Russia.
Within the framework of the visit of the Finnish students, a presentation about the St. Petersburg Postgraduate School of Nursing was made by curators of the project — Larisa Garderobova, Head of the Educational-Methodological Department, Elena Godovykh, Head of Marketing and Foreign Affairs Department.
The moderator of the simulation-based learning was Head of the Simulation Laboratory of the St. Petersburg Postgraduate School of Nursing Irina Balandina, who presented the situational task and supervised the correctness of the task implementation.
Internship program participants from Kazakhstan — the chief and senior nurses of in-patient and out-patient facilities — were given expert cards to be filled up, and then there was a discussion.
The students of XAMK were directly involved in the simulation training, and their colleagues observed the situation through live broadcast. Debriefing was at the end of the training — all participants were able to express their opinion, as well as they noted the mistakes made during the simulation.
The Finnish participants got acquainted with the methods of interactive learning in the simulation center; they received certificates of participation in the live-stream simulation training.
In 2018, it is planned to organize joint live-stream simulation training and modular courses within the framework of a network and international partnership with the possibility of remote connection.
