COVID-19 Contingency Planning

COVID-19 Contingency Planning

Prepare for short or long-term closures that could impact your training programs

EMS Offers Preparedness Resources in Response to the Current COVID-19 Outbreak

Schools are in the process of preparing for short and long-term closures—and addressing the urgent need for remote education learning plans.
Colleges and universities across the world have announced immediate closures or are enacting emergency contingencies which allow their student populations to complete the semester remotely. This has left administrators and educators scrambling for tools to help them seamlessly make the switch to live online or video-based learning.
As a committed partner in the clinical training and education space, EMS is proud to provide ongoing support, live trainings, and practice seminars throughout the duration of the outbreak.

Meeting the Challenge of Creating Experiential Learning for Students at a Distance

Join Dr. Colella for this Interactive Case Study, describing how she solved the problem of creating experiential learning for her remote students. The need to transform a previous face-to-face course to a distant learning format led Dr. Colella into the world of technology. She put together an interdisciplinary team of instructional design and information technology to insure that student learning at a distance provided an experience comparable to that of on-site students.

Challenging Students to ‘Think Like a Nurse’ with an Innovative Multi-Patient Acute Care Hospital Simulation Scenario

Nurse educators are challenged to prepare future nurses for clinical practice upon graduation with high student enrollment in nursing programs and limited clinical placement opportunities that prepare students to think and “act” like professional nurses. In this webinar, Professor Deborah Halliday will discuss how she developed a multi-patient acute care hospital simulation using the NLN and Jeffries Simulation Theory to address this need. She will explain how this innovative nursing program was developed and evaluated, and will also provide lessons learned from the experience and future plans.
