We SEE simulation differently:
Safety • Efficiency • Effectiveness

UPCOMING PROGRAMS

Simulation Instructor Programs 2019:

November 5 & 6 (OPEN)

 

New Online Debriefing Program (OPEN)

 

New Online Debriefing Program

CAPE's Online Debriefing Program in partnership with the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning at Stanford University is now available. In this new online course, you will master the art of debriefing, one of the most effective strategies for empowering healthcare professionals to deliver safe, high-quality patient care.

 

Recent Webinar

In this webinar, CAPE’s directors, Lou Halamek, M.D. and Nicole Yamada, M.D., use an interactive discussion and video exemplars from CAPE’s new Online Debriefing Program to highlight and analyze four foundational strategies from CAPE’s 20 Strategies for Effective Debriefing. You’ll learn how to clearly communicate expectations for how a debriefing will be conducted, how to begin debriefings in an objective and efficient manner, and ways to avoid creating defensiveness during debriefings.

NASA Debriefing Methods with Dr. Lou Halamek

In the podcast below, debrief2learn's Adam Cheng interviews Dr. Lou Halamek and discusses the NASA style of debriefing. Dr. Halamek has spent time at NASA learning how they conduct simulations and debriefings, which focus on performance gaps and improvements, while at the sane time de-emphasizing emotions. Dr. Halamek describes the lessons he learned from NASA and how they can be applied to healthcare debriefings.

CAPE Video in Simulation Series

Video in Simulation is a three-part series featuring Dr. Lou Halamek discussing his philosophies of sim training and the use of video debriefing. This series of educational videos was produced by Debriefly, click here to view the rest of the series.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

International Impact: Catching up with Dr. Dahlström

In 2003, Dr. Anders Dahlström and a team from Stockholm South Hospital in Sweden, came to CAPE and participated in the Simulation Instructor Program. Now, more than 15 years later, Dr. Dahlström shares, "The visit at CAPE was an important experience. We were inspired to keep on and managed to build a small center for simulation in our hospital, improved realism in the scenarios and the debriefing using the video recording" (June 26, 2019).


Congratulations!

Congratulations to Janene Fuerch, MD on being selected to be part of the Stanford Medicine's - Women in Medicine Executive Leadership Panel! Faculty at CAPE - Center for Advanced Pediatric and Perinatal Education are committed to improving many aspects of healthcare, including being pivotal role models for the next generation of practitioners.


CPQCC Program launched Simulating Success in collaboration with CAPE

In March 2018, the CPQCC Program launched Simulating Success in collaboration with CAPE to help NICUs in California and Oregon implement simulation-based neonatal resuscitation training programs at their hospitals with the goal of improving resuscitation team performance during preterm and term deliveries. 


 

What NASA Can Teach Health Care About Healthy Critiquing 

Dr. Halamek shares his lecture delivered during the Neonatal Resuscitation Program Seminar at the AAP NCE. Read on to see Dr. Halamek's thoughts on how NASA’s critiquing techniques can foster a culture of constructive criticism and safety.

 

 

 

 


China, Beijing Teams Train at CAPE

Since 2014, CAPE has worked in conjunction with the China Maternal and Child Health Association to provide biannual Simulation Instructor Program training for Chinese obstetricians, neonatologists, pediatricians, and anesthesiologists.

 


Redesigning Healthcare is Key Topic

A recent grant to improve maternal and neonatal patient safety converges with design and simulation expertise on Stanford's campus. 

 

 


Mission:  Control

On a quest to improve safety and efficiency, one hospital is taking a cue from NASA's Mission Control and developing a hospital operations center.
