We all want to keep our patients safe and provide the best care possible, right? I know the answer is yes. Using simulation allows learners to experience best practices in a controlled setting without fear of harming patients. Simulation encourages attendees to experience firsthand situations that may come up in their own practice. This error-free zone will allow participants time to work through difficult or critical situations in a non-intimidating setting so that a culture of safety can be sustained in the real-life setting.

ONS will offer two simulation clinics at Congress in the ONS Booth. The first session, “Complications, Anger, and Burnout,” will walk you through an interactive situation that many of us deal with in our profession. You will encounter a difficult patient and their family who have experienced post-operative kids inflatable water park complications and met medical system red tape at every juncture. Discover how you can provide safe, quality, and compassionate care to others and still care for yourself. You’ll learn strategies that you can use and bring home to your colleagues.

The second clinic, “Good Day Gone Bad: Infusion Reactions,” will feature a nurse having their day start off great, but then quickly change when her patient experiences an infusion reaction.  This clinic will identify the differences of a hypersensitive reaction and a cytokine release syndrome and how to handle them. This simulation will take you through from start to finish, using two nurses, one experienced and one a new graduate. Together they will work through the reaction using critical thinking skills while keeping the patient safe.

Please join the Congress Planning Team on Thursday, April 28 and Friday April 29 from 12:30-1:30 pm to engage in these interactive sessions. Let’s learn from each other so that we can continue to provide a “culture of safety” to our patients.
