HOSA International Leadership Conference

Thursday, June 23

9:45 a.m.

Hands-On Body Systems: “Guts–R–Us”

Starla Ewan, Starla’s Creative Teaching Tips, Byron Martin Advanced

Technology Cente


Participants will build the major organs of the gastrointestinal system out

of brightly colored clay. This classroom activity is great to guide students

to learn the organs, their role in providing nutrition to the body, and their

interrelationship with other body systems. Your “guts” go home with you!

HOSA members will take their organs with them after the presentation!

10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. (repeated)

Inter-Professional Education (IPE):

Cardiac Arrest Scenarios Come to Life

Through Collaboration and Teamwork

BrianWallenburg, Simulation Specialist, Parry Center for Clinical

Skills and Simulation, University of South Dakota, James Kroon,

University of South Dakota, and Brock Rops, South Dakota HOSA

State Advisor

The Health Care Team event has been designed to incorporate team

based care and learning into a health scenario. According to the World

Health Organization (WHO), IPE is defined as “when students from two

or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable

effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.” Participation in this

event, allows students to define and gain insight into inter-professional

education (IPE). Students research multiple health disciplines and identify

these roles. Team participants then work as a health care team when role-

playing for the event, allowing students the opportunity to collaborate

when treating a standardized patient or simulated patient. Could this

team event prepare HOSA members for success in the health professions?

1 – 1:45 p.m.

Making It Real: Using Moulage Techniques

for Simulated Disaster Victims

Rebecca Calfee, Coordinator Health Science Programs, Roane State

Community College

Attendees will learn how to prepare a victim for a “life-like” scenario they

may encounter in a mock disaster as a way of providing training. Recipes

will be shared and participants will be instructed in the demonstration

of using moulage materials made from“homemade ingredients.” The

healthcare simulation community uses these techniques for commonly

seen illnesses, infections, wounds or traumatic injuries. Moulage kits can

be fairly expensive, but knowing some cool recipes can save programs

over 85% of the cost incurred when ordering one kit for a classroom.

2 – 2:45 p.m.

First Care: You are the Help

Until Help Arrives

LCDR Skip Payne, Deputy Director, Medical Reserve Corps

Kathryn Roberts, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)

The overall goal of First Care (previously called Active Bystander) is to

strengthen the role and ability of persons to save lives by taking a few,

specific helping actions when at the scene of an unexpected emergency.

HOSA members will learn how to stop the dying until medical responders

arrive by applying pressure to bleeding and helping the affected to breathe.

Friday, June 24

9:30 – 11 a.m.

positions and responsibilities, and interaction with federal, state, and local
