Home Healthcare Simulation Workshop

Home care is a unique specialty within healthcare that requires a unique independent nature and set of knowledge, skills and competencies. Many new staff are unaware of the skills required and may transition from other settings where they are considered an expert and then fail or lack the confidence to stay in home care.

This 18 hour simulation program is specifically designed to transition staff to the reality of home care.

Simulation provides a realistic and safe learning environment that has been proven to develop high levels of competency and safety. In this realistic home care learning environment participants can make and learn from mistakes without risk to patient care. Each scenario builds on the new strategies providing opportunities to immediately integrate learning in order to grow confidence and competency. 

Who Should Attend: Nurses, PT’s, OT’s, & SW that are new, transitioning, or need to build confidence related to completing home visits & work for home care agency

Where: The event will be facilitated by the Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence Faculty and is hosted at the Center for Advanced Professional Excellence (CAPE) at the University of Colorado Anschutz campus.  This is a simulation learning center with a simulated apartment to realistically enhance the experience. 

March 3, 4, and 5, 2015. 
April 28, 29, and 30, 2015.
Participants are expected to attend all three days of an event  (8:00-4:30pm) as the scenarios build each time.

Important NoteThe net cost to each participant is $500, but this is only after Caring for Colorado (CfC) grant funds have been applied. The actual cost for hosting this extensive simulation training is $1,850 per person.  Due to the significant outcome achieved during our previous events, CFC has agreed to provide additional sustainability funds for two more events.  As a result, $1,350 per participant from a Colorado Home Health agency is being paid by Caring for Colorado.  Please take advantage of this tremendous savings while you support the development of your staff.
