Faculty and COHS Simulation Center Featured in National Journal

Lutana Haan

Lutana Haan and her use of simulation as a teaching tool for the Respiratory Care students was featured in the Sept. 2011 issue of the AARC Times. The interview, titled “A Collaborative Effort” discussed the state-of-the-art College of Health Sciences Simulation Center, the inventory of mannequins and the way in which simulations are performed with Respiratory Care students. Simulation allows students to be in the drivers seat making decisions in a case study. This type of opportunity may not be available to all students in a clinical setting at the hospital. The simulations enable each student to experience and respond to specific clinical conditions created for the simulation lab. The article also reviewed the use of debriefing after each simulation scenario in order to provide an immediate reflection and discussion of what went well, what did not go so well, and what might be done differently.
