Hands-On Body Systems: “Guts–R–Us”
Starla Ewan, Starla’s Creative Teaching Tips, Byron Martin Advanced
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
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
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.
