Teaching and Learning the Skill of Intubation Using Telehealth Glasses
Endotracheal intubation using direct laryngoscopy is a fundamental skill for health care professionals who are tasked with the job of securing a patient's airway. Teaching this skill is often challenging because of the inability of a faculty member to share the same vantage point as the learner. The aim of this study was to determine feasibility and acceptability of the use of telehealth glasses to guide teaching the skill of endotracheal intubation. (Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing)

Polishing Pearls: Lessons Learned From Listening to Leaders
Leadership is a skill. Being someone who is able to positively influence the people they encounter on a consistent basis not only takes knowledge but also a willingness to step outside of themselves and be vulnerable, to have an attitude of service, and to embrace the often uncomfortable nature of something new. Individuals with these skills are frequently found in leadership positions, whether it be formal or informal. In today's climate, people are looking for effective leaders to learn from and be inspired by. (Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing)

Improving Safety of Patients With Autism Spectrum Disorder Through Simulation
Patient safety is the number one priority in health care as safety is considered at every level of a health care organization (e.g., building, equipment, communication, processes for medications, treatments, and surgical procedures). Addressing the welfare of patients can be challenging, yet for some of the most vulnerable patients (e.g., special needs, disabilities and mental and social health issues), even the most routine nursing requests can put them at a safety risk. Simulations provide an opportunity for nursing students and professional nurses with realistic experiences caring for individuals with unique needs, espe...

Combining Self-Debriefing and Group Debriefing in Simulation
In all types of simulations, debriefing is a crucial component of the experience that stimulates learning through reflection. Self-debriefing following both in-person and virtual simulations is being explored. In this article, we discuss the opportunities and challenges of combining two methods of debriefing to optimize learning and extend reflection. More specifically, we examine the combination of using written self-debriefs followed by facilitated group debriefs. This discussion paper provides debriefing options for educators to meet their students and educational needs. (Source: Clinical Simulation in Nursing)

Development of a Subcutaneous Abscess Simulator for Incision and Drainage
Proper incision and drainage of a subcutaneous abscess is a vital skill to develop during physician assistant and nurse practitioner training. Skin and soft-tissue infections, including subcutaneous abscesses, are among the most common complaints seen in primary care. Improper technique may result in bacteremia, septicemia, osteomyelitis, and/or tissue necrosis. Although abscess incision and drainage is taught to a multitude of providers during procedural training courses, finding a safe, inexpensive abscess simulator has been challenging.
