Nurse en­trepreneurs de­but train­ing tool

Maryland Independent - - Business -

A new, in­no­va­tive de­vice de­signed to en­hance the train­ing of nurses, paramedics and other clin­i­cal spe­cial­ists for­mally de­buted Mar 1 at the Hu­man Pa­tient Sim­u­la­tion Net­work world con­fer­ence at the Saw­grass Mar­riott Golf Re­sort and Spa in Ponte Ve­dra Beach, Fla., ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from the com­pany.

Reg­is­tered nurse El­iz­a­beth Ben­son, co-founder and CEO of B& G Ed­u­ca­tional In­no­va­tions (BGEI) and for­mer In­dian Head res­i­dent, led her core team in a work­shop to dis­cuss ways to im­prove the use of real life vol­un­teers, who are called “stan­dard­ized par­tic­i­pants” in the clin­i­cal sim­u­la­tion en­vi­ron­ment. The pro­fes­sion­als in at­ten­dance prac­ticed with the com­pany’s ReaLifeSim wear­able in­tra­venous in­ser­tion (IV) task trainer, de­signed to help stu­dents safely prac­tice start­ing an IV on a live per­son.

B& G Ed­u­ca­tional, through its ReaLifeSim sub­sidiary, de­signs af­ford­able, durable, wear­able sim­u­la­tion de­vices for train­ing clin­i­cal stu­dents in hands-on skills and provider/ pa­tient in­ter­ac­tion.

“Nurse in­struc­tors at­tend­ing the work­shop re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated the sleeve’s track­ing and trend­ing fea­tures, which al­lows them to mon­i­tor stu­dent and class per­for­mance over time,” Ben­son said in the re­lease.

Cit­ing the fa­vor­able re­sponses re­ceived from at­ten­dees who prac­ticed with the sleeve, BGEI co-founder, reg­is­tered nurse Linda Good­man, di­rec­tor of the clin­i­cal sim­u­la­tion cen­ter at the Col­lege of South­ern Mary­land and a La Plata res­i­dent, re­ported “how sat­is­fy­ing it has been to hear pos­i­tive com­ments about the re­al­is­tic func­tion and real-time feed­back the de­vice pro­vides to stu­dents.”
