Greg and Nan Howland traveled to Cap Haitien, Haiti in September 2015. Their goal was to use simulation as an avenue to discuss feedback and to develop teamwork and critical thinking. The Haitian Association of Indiana assisted by translating the presentation, scenarios and video script into Creole.
Members also participated in the simulation videos speaking in Creole, the language of the attendees. Their contributions helped to make the presentations a success. The Howland’s presented at a Leadership Conference for pastors, community leaders, physicians, nurses and paramedics. They also presented at a community healthcare clinic and a nursing school.
Faith Church and Pastor Bruno hosted a Leadership Conference with the focus on Servant Leadership. Pastors and Community leaders attended. Simulation was presented to physicians, nurses and paramedics in the afternoon. Dr. Renaud Gerve and Nan Howland shared how simulation can be used to practice communication and critical thinking.
PRO FAMILLE QLINIQUE
Simulation was presented to the staff at Pro Famille Clinique, a community healthcare clinic. The staff attended the simulation presentation and then applied that information the same day. They used simulation to recognize how they could improve their response to delivering care in an emergency situation. Staff members used critical thinking and communication to identify ways to work better as a team.
UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME SCHOOL OF NURSING
Simulation 101 was presented to instructors at the School of Nursing. The emphasis was on giving feedback to students to develop their critical thinking.
