Simulation Based Training Healthcare And Beyond

RRP $457.99

It should come as no surprise that people learn from experience. In one form or another, it is the primary means by which most of us have come to master the fundamentals of our profession. This is why simulation is such a valuable tool for learning. It allows people to have experiences they couldn't otherwise get in a predictable or systematic way. However, experience alone is not enough to ensure high levels of performance, patient safety, and quality of care. In addition to the experience itself, learners must receive feedback in order to learn. This includes the feedback that they receive during the simulation as well as the feedback they receive based on a careful reflection of events with instructors and their peers after the simulation scenario has ended. These after-action reviews or debriefs have been described as the heart and soul of learning from practice in simulations (Rall, Manser, & Howard, 2000). Empirical studies support this notion and have shown that debriefs are the primary means by which people learn from their experiences in simulations and transfer what they learn to the real world (Savoldelli, Naik, Park, Joo, Chow, & Hamstra, 2006; Issenberg, McGaghie, Petrusa, Gordon, & Scalese, 2005). So, in order for team training to result in better clinical outcomes, team members must engage in a quality debrief to make sense of the experience and translate that into better performance in the future. But what does a good debrief look like? How is it run, and by whom? What can trainers do to ensure that every debrief is as good as it can be-that team members come away from the experience learning the right lessons? While the science of training and simulation community of practice have developed answers to these questions, they remain generally inaccessible for practitioners. This book addresses that need. Written for practitioners charged with implementing simulation-based training (SBT) for teams in healthcare, it provides a practical tool set for conducting debriefs.


I Can Barely Take Care Of Myself

RRP $18.99

It's hard to be an adult. You have to dress yourself and pay bills and remember to buy birthday gifts. You have to drive and get annual physicals and tip for good service. Some adults take on the additional burden of caring for a tiny human being with no language skills or bladder control. Parenthood can be a very rewarding and joyful experience, but let's face it, so are margaritas at the adults only pool.

Jen Kirkman's stand-up routine includes lots of jokes about not having kids (and some about masturbation and Johnny Depp), and complete strangers constantly approach her and ask, "Who will take care of you when you're old?" (Servants!) Some insist, "But you'd be such a great mom!" (Really? You know me so well!) Whether living rent-free in her childhood bedroom while trying to break into comedy (the best free birth control around, she says), or taking the stage at major clubs and joining a hit TV show-and along the way getting married, divorced, and attending excruciating afternoon birthday parties for her parent friends-Jen is completely happy and fulfilled by her decision not to procreate.

I Can Barely Take Care of Myself is a beacon of hilarious hope for anyone whose major life decisions have been questioned by friends, family, and strangers in a comedy club bathroom. And for everyone who wants to know if Jen will ever know true love without looking into the eyes of her child. (A girl can dream.)

Connected Health Care

RRP $305.99

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has a critical responsibility to advance the connectivity of electronic health information and interoperability of health information technology (health IT). This is consistent with its mission to protect the health of all Americans and provide essential human services, especially for those who are least able to help themselves. This work has become particularly urgent with the need to address the national priority of better and more affordable health care, leading to better population health. Achieving this goal will only be possible with a strong, flexible health IT ecosystem that can appropriately support transparency and decision-making, reduce redundancy, inform payment reform, and help to transform care into a model that enhances access and truly addresses health beyond the confines of the health care system. Such an infrastructure will support more efficient and effective systems, scientific advancement, and lead to a continuously improving health system that empowers individuals, customizes treatment, and accelerates cure of disease. This book's purpose is to better inform decision making to improve individual health, community health, and population health. It also describes the policy and technical actions needed to realize the vision of a seamless data system.
