What to expect
At Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, we’re 100 percent dedicated to creating safer health care for children — both within our walls and across the region.
Training that changes kids’ lives — and yours
We believe that simulation can be a transformative experience for professionals. Simulation provides a rare chance to stretch outside your comfort zone. You’ll gain confidence in your clinical judgment and that of your teammates. Best of all, you’ll leave with a wealth of new skills to enhance your practice. CME/CEUs are available for most programs.
What to expect during a simulation
Simulation training uses computerized infant- and child-size manikins, along with sights and sounds, to reproduce a clinical environment that provides the same physical challenges and mental stressors that would occur in a real emergency. The scenarios can be customized to fit the experience of the participant, whether they are novice or expert practitioners.
Many opportunities for hands-on learning in different environments
Children’s Simulation Center is a leader in innovative simulation program delivery and is positioned to meet the training needs of practicing healthcare professionals wherever they can best be served.
Children’s offers a variety of simulation experiences to meet your team’s needs:
- In-situ simulation. Our staff travels into clinical areas to provide teams with risk-free training in their own environments. Simulation allows teams to test new equipment, practice protocols, uncover latent safety errors and give new facilities a “trial run” before opening — all with zero risk to patients.
- Lab-based simulation. Children’s 5,000-square-foot training center provides an ideal setting for longer and larger trainings.
- Mobile simulation. Our 40-foot, fully equipped mobile simulation center can replicate an emergency room, delivery room or other acute care setting and brings our most popular programs to teams across the Upper Midwest.
Let us bring the learning to you
Children’s mobile simulation center provides emergency response training for high-risk, low-volume pediatric and neonatal critical events to teams across the region. Our staff can also create custom simulations to meet your team’s needs. Children’s mobile simulation training can be scheduled by calling 612-813-6988 or by emailing sim.center@childrensmMN.org.
