Utah Simulation Coalition Successes
The Utah Simulation Coalition (USC) was conceived in very early 2015 as a true union between clinicians and academicians. Initially, the clinical side of simulation was the focus and became a very popular staple in the regional communities across Utah. Sarah Minson, MSN, RN, Simulation Coordinator for Intermountain Healthcare, worked very closely with USC President, Dr. Madeline Lassche, RN, and board members to create, develop, and drive the current Simulation for Academicians course.
Since the inception of the Simulation for Academicians course, there have been two very successful executions of that model. Additionally, a successful model of the Certified Healthcare Simulation Operational Specialist Course (CHSOS) was run; it was inspired, developed and implemented by board member Stevi Gire.
Each iteration of the course is over three days and a certificate of completion and CEUs are awarded.
