Simulation: Reducing the Burden on Clinical Affiliates

From the 2024 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (Recorded 2/24/2024)
Presented by Nicole Dutton, PhD, M(ASCP), and Michael Randolph, EdD, RMA(AMT)

Area clinical laboratories have a limited ability to place students for clinical rotations. In this presentation, we describe the development and implementation of a simulation laboratory that replaces nearly 50 percent of the clinical experience, reducing the burden on our clinical affiliates.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the pros and cons of simulation by evaluating data and evidence.
  • Explore options for the adoption of simulation in your MLT/MLS program by reflecting on how we implemented ours.
  • Create one or more simulation ideas or activities inspired by the simulations that we demonstrate.

This recorded presentation is P.A.C.E. ® accredited. One (1) P.A.C.E. ® contact hour and one (1) Florida credit hour in the area GEN will be awarded to participants. ASCLS P.A.C.E.® is accepted by the ASCP/ASCLS/AGT Board of Certification and all states, including Florida and California, as an approved provider of continuing education for recertification and licensure.
