Simulation in Action at UAA

Vision Statement

The Interprofessional Health Sciences Simulation Center will be a state-of-the-art simulation center promoting collaborative interprofessional learning that supports and enhances a statewide improvement in patient care and safety.

Purpose Statement

The Interprofessional Health Sciences Simulation Center provides diverse learning opportunities in a safe and supportive environment to promote communication, collaboration, and integration of Alaskan healthcare partners with a focus on preparing learners to be competent, confident, and compassionate health professionals.

The simulation labs are located in rooms 209C, 209E, and 211C of the Health Sciences Building (HSB).  The Simulation Center includes three high-fidelity simulation patient rooms equipped with a variety of VitalSims (med-fidelity), Noelle birthing simulator, SimMan 3G, and SimBaby (high-fidelity) mannequins, one control room with three content expert and technician control stations with advanced video system technology, three video debriefing rooms, and two simulation computer labs.  

The simulation labs provide an environment where the users may practice their proper client assessment, critical thinking, intervention skills, and procedures.  These labs are installed with pan-tilt-zoom video cameras, microphones, intercoms, and control center with advanced video systems for mannequin operation, audio/video recording, patient-student event log, and live-streaming application.  This set up provides a debriefing and reflection tool used by instructors for student assessment and critique.
