CAE Healthcare to offer COVID-19 simulation training for healthcare providers
The simulation-based training courses will be available in the coming weeks.
CAE Healthcare, the healthcare division of the Montreal-based provider of training and training equipment, announced on March 12 that it will offer complimentary webinars and a downloadable scenario throughout the months of March and April to help caregivers practice personal safety procedures and initial patient assessment related to coronavirus. These webinars and scenario will be offered free of charge for customers and healthcare providers.
In addition, CAE Healthcare Academy is developing a simulation-based training course to help assess, diagnose, and treat patients with coronavirus and to help organizations ensure that staff are ready to don and doff personal protective equipment.
“Simulation-based training is a key patient safety strategy that can help improve teamwork and communication amid unpredictable, rapidly unfolding situations,” said Rekha Ranganathan, president of CAE Healthcare, in a statement. “By offering realistic practice scenarios to caregivers before they enter high-stress environments, we can have a positive impact on outcomes.”
A four-scenario training course, Pathogens of High Consequence, will be offered to healthcare providers and systems in the coming weeks.
