Conference focuses on lifelike human simulators

Registration for the Pittsburg State University Department of Nursing’s spring 2007 conference, “Simulation: A New Road Map for Health Care Education,” is due by April 6. The conference, which runs from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on April 20, will be held in the McPherson Nurse Education Building on the PSU campus.

At the heart of this year’s conference will be the department’s new Regional Simulation Center/Learning Resources Center. The center is equipped with high-tech human simulators that, educators say, is changing health care education.

The keynote speaker for the conference will be Kathy Ann Carver, a professor of nursing at Johnson County Community College and a nationally recognized expert in simulation for health care education.

In addition to learning about using the new human simulators in health care education, conference participants will be able to participate in at least two patient simulations. The conference fee is $60. For more information, call the PSU Department of Nursing at 620-235-4431 or visit the department’s Web site at http://www.pittstate.edu/nurs/.
