ESIMar's Simulation - Overview and goals
The simulation department of the Escola Superior d'Infermería del Mar (ESIMar-UPF) was born with the purpose of promoting personal and professional development through the use of simulation and reflective practice as learning methodologies. That is achieved through the promotion of a dynamic context of built synergies between people and new technologies.
In this space, class activities are adapted to the training needs of the participants. Sessions are designed and implemented for nursing and medicine degrees, postgraduate nursing degrees, and professionals from the different institutions that conform the Hospital del Mar, as well as from other health providers and institutions.
To carry out simulation activities, the school counts with an experienced team trained in simulation methodology, as well as immersed in the teaching and healthcare world, adding to the value of their experience. The simulation team is based on a multidisciplinary approach, in which the work between professors with expertise in debriefing and simulation technicians make it possible to provide the student with immersive experiences that prepare them for a safe healthcare practice.
Furthermore, professional actresses and actors play the role of simulated patients, enhancing the experiences within the simulated experience. In our training unit we count with multipurpose and specific spaces equipped with the latest technology, with mannequins and clinical materials, and a team of trained actors and actresses. All these resources allow the team to reproduce the required clinical environments and situations.
