The Critical Care Simulation is the final requirement of the Introduction to Critical Care Program, geared toward Nursing Professionals.
The Critical Care Simulation will be completed in-person in the Faculty of Nursing, University of Windsor simulation lab with high fidelity manikins. In small groups, learners will be presented with case-based scenarios that will align with the theory in the 7 self-directed modules. Participants will develop skills in caring for the critically ill patient. Scenarios will focus on mechanical ventilation, cardiac rhythm interpretation and treatment, as well as hemodynamics. Team dynamics, pharmacology, and ethical issues will be threaded throughout each scenario.
Learners must complete all 7 Critical Care modules in the Introduction to Critical Care program before attending the Critical Care Simulation. Individuals who do not complete the 7 critical care modules will not be permitted to attend the Critical Care Simulation and will be automatically withdrawn from the Critical Care Simulation course.
