Join Us for the 12th Annual
Clinical Simulation Awards
April 22, 2021
3:00 PM EDT / 12:00 PM PDT
Thanks to all who voted for the 2021
Excellence in Clinical Simulation Awards!
The winners have been decided and the envelopes are sealed! We hope you can join us for the awards ceremony where we will not only celebrate the winners but also the entire simulation community.
Unfortunately, since the award ceremony will be held virtually this year, we can’t catch up over dinner like we normally do. But we’d still like to show our appreciation by offering each attendee a gift card. Also, during the ceremony there will be a short trivia contest with even more prizes and a chance to show off your “Simulation IQ.”

The Pioneer Award honors an individual who has been actively engaged in pioneering new ways of clinical simulation training at their center.
Grand Valley State University
John was able to innovate the GVSU Simulation Center’s curricula by using SIMULATIONiQ telemedicine to have high fidelity manikin simulations. This format allowed him and his team to continue to provide students with a dynamic learning environment which encouraged critical thinking skills while learning to administer care live. They were able to continue to “nurse out
loud” to an acting nurse in a hospital room with a live voiced manikin patient with live vitals monitor and auscultation sounds. Through the SIMULATIONiQ software, they were also able to have student and faculty observers join the live encounter, and then provide feedback at its conclusion

PIONEER AWARD WINNER
Clinical Simulation Specialist
Central VA Center for Simulation and Virtual Learning
Caitlin supports simulation with an engaged spirit to create the best possible learning environment. Through her diligence and attention to detail, she helps SBE come to life for learners, creating innovative moulage with sights, sounds and smells. She creates environments that immerse the learner into the simulation activity using all five senses to engage learners and develop their clinical reasoning skills.
