Lumberjack iStan: Taking the Classroom into the Forest

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Traditionally, high fidelity human simulation has been used to train health care providers. This presentation will describe the partnership among the Penn State Mont Alto nursing program, the Penn State forest technology program, and multiple community agencies which allowed human simulation to be taken into the forest. The simulated scenario of a tree harvesting accident allowed forestry students to practice “field” first aid and CPR skills, paramedics to strengthen their teamwork process, and nursing students to use their critical thinking skills in a mock emergency department. This simulation was positively received by participants and clearly enhanced their education.
