Title Simulation as a Teaching Tool Workshop

Instructors Dr. Abdulaziz Aljohani

Venue Hall 3

Description This workshop immerses healthcare simulation leaders and instructors in a multi method workshop wherein participants learn how to teach clinical, behavioral, and cognitive skills through simulation. It draws from the disciplines of aviation, healthcare, psychology, experiential learning, and organizational behavior. Participants explore simulator-based teaching methods applicable across the healthcare education spectrum, including undergraduate and graduate medical, nursing and allied health domains. The daily formats vary and include; simulation scenarios, lectures, small and large group discussions, and practical exercises with feedback. Typically these courses also offer a couple of social evenings for networking and sharing experiences.

  • • Building a challenging and safe learning environment
  • • Utilizing effective debriefing techniques and avoiding ineffective ones
  • • Preparing, building, conducting and debriefing high- fidelity simulation scenarios

Duration 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Target Audience Physicians, Nurses, Health Educators, Allied health professionals

Number of seats 50

Fees Free Registration


Title Operation & Management of Simulation Center

Instructors Eng. Faisal Ashour

Venue Hall 3

Description The workshop will be targeting technical users to address the development of their background skills to gain the ability toward operating a simulation lab/center. Participants will acquire methods to be lead in creating and programming scenarios using different simulation software such as Leardal and Gumard. In addition, they will have an overview on the simulation user interface including the installation and basic maintenance. The workshop will deliver the importants of realism in health professions simulation and the ways to follow to add it to the training environment.

Objectives Specific:
For the management and operation of a simulation center.
Measurable: There will be hands on session.

By the completion of the course, a post test will take place to measure the gained knowledge.
Realistic: Operate a simulation center, program scenarios.
Time-related: By the end of the course. …

Duration 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
