Ohio Success Story: Simulation Trainings for Providers (Apr 2022)
From 2014-2017, the Ohio PAMR program presented three types of training. On the Road, Train the Trainer, and Advanced Train the Trainer courses served 298 obstetric professionals representing 69 hospitals in Ohio. These were both direct clinical trainings and opportunities for obstetric nurse educators to learn the use of simulation to train staff. Six-month follow up revealed retention of both knowledge and skill sets with an overall increase in simulation trainings held by participating institutions.
This successful program was adapted for use with emergency medicine professionals beginning in Fall 2020. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, all trainings have been virtual.
