High Fidelity Simulation

Data to understand the effectiveness of High-Fidelity Patient Simulation (HFPS) as an educational tool for second-year paramedic students is being assessed by Matthew Jubelius, Manager of Health Simulation and Duane Delaurier, Paramedic Instructor at MHC.

HFPS involves the use of mannequins equipped with computer software that mimic human responses during emergency management events.  These events are digitally captured and skill performance is analyzed. This research will help us begin to understand if patient simulators are valid training tools. Data collected from the HFPS study will also help us to understand its impact on student learning and performance skills including team management and leadership, CPR, medication, and airway management in advanced cardiac life support.
