Simulation Courses

The WELLS Center offers simulation opportunities to the entire healthcare community through fee-for-service events.  These custom designed events take place at the WELLS Center or off-site at the participating facility.  Prior to the event, facility educators are encouraged to attend the Introduction to High Fidelity Simulation in Healthcare and the Facilitating Learning with High Fidelity Simulation seminars.  After the seminars, the educators meet with the Center’s simulation experts to design the simulation experience that is specific to the desired outcomes.  A second meeting with the WELLS staff provides the educators an opportunity to walk through the simulation and refine the developed scenarios.

The day of the event, the facility educators and staff either come to the WELLS Center for the event or the WELLS Center staff transport the high-fidelity mannequins and other high tech equipment to the facility. The event is facilitated by the facility educators with the technical assistance and coaching from the WELLS Center experts.
