APRN Summit (APRN) CE: 4
The APRN Summit offers advanced neonatal content tailored specifically to neonatal nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists. Learn about education through simulation, its application in the neonatal healthcare setting, and how simulation labs foster skill development and competency. In addition, the latest on advanced neonatal hot topics and controversies will be discussed.
Changing the Way We Educate: Workforce Expectations and Evolving Healthcare Systems
Pamela R. Jeffries, PhD RN FAAN ANEF
This session will focus on different teaching modalities which have altered the way we educate new graduates using experiential learning and immersion in clinical simulations. Evidence will be provided on best practices in clinical simulations with implications being discussed for meeting the needs of a dynamic healthcare landscape and workforce. Changes in clinical education will be presented along with implications for policy guidelines.
Breakout Session: Clinical Track
Hot Topics in Neonatology: Does my Practice Need to Change?
Robert Ursprung, MD MMSc
This session will discuss a variety of important and controversial topics in Neonatology and provide a framework for clinical practice when the literature is not definitive.
- Identify management strategies for complex hyperbilirubinemia issues such as isoimmunization and when to use IVIG.
- Illustrate reflux and GERD management.
- Compare and contrast high flow NC versus CPAP and bubble CPAP versus conventional.
Breakout Session: Faculty Track
Designing a Simulation-based Curriculum: The Essentials Including Debriefing and Evaluation Approaches
Pamela R. Jefferies, PhD RN FAAN ANEF
Professor and Dean of George Washington University School of Nursing
This session will review the basic elements necessary for creating a simulation-based curriculum. Key essentials will be provided in addition to reviewing different debriefing approaches; both important in connecting theory to practice for the learner or new graduate. To obtain evidence and outcomes data, evaluation strategies will be discussed and will provide a framework for how to measure the success of simulation outcomes, the process of implementing a simulation, as well as student learning outcomes.
- Describe the current literature and evidence supporting the value and role of clinical simulations.
- Outline important elements for consideration when utilizing a simulation based curriculum.
- Discuss educational strategies critical to implementing simulation into a nursing curriculum.
- Review debriefing techniques and strategies.
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
