Effectively training learners to perform procedures can be challenging. Complicated training models, learners of different levels, and lack of engagement can add to the difficulty. Training students, residents, and peers using simulation takes not only years of practice, but also an evidence-based approach. This workshop will take an innovative approach to train educators to effectively teach procedures using simulation task trainers. The session will review some of the best practices in training for procedures (what is worth doing, what is not), what types of trainers might be worth making or purchasing, as well as pearls and pitfalls. Presenters will then take participants to the simulated bedside to practice and train on these specific procedures. Experts in simulation-based education and research will instruct the session, focusing on specific and measurable ways to teach learners, and offering their own experiences around each procedure. After an initial interactive presentation reviewing best practices in simulation procedural training, learners will have the opportunity to choose the breakout sessions that appeal most to their needs. Each procedural station will review teaching of that specific procedure, but will focus on a specific element of simulation-based procedural education. This session is perfect for the non-simulation expert interested in sharing his or her procedural skills with learners in the most effective and efficient way possible. Faculty, fellows, and residents are welcome.
