CAH and EMS Trauma Scenario Simulation Training: Competitive Opportunity Announcement
12/01/17 Portland, Ore.
The Oregon Office of Rural Health (ORH) is pleased to announce the opening of the competitive application period for the Trauma Simulation Training Opportunity.
The Oregon Office of Rural Health (ORH) is pleased to announce the opening of the competitive application period for the Trauma Simulation Training Opportunity, detailed below. Applications to participate in an on-site simulation will be accepted until 5pm, December 29, 2017.
ORH has received funding from the HRSA Rural Hospital Flexibility Grant Program to support participation of three (3) Oregon Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), and their partner Emergency Medical Services (EMS) organizations, in trauma simulation training with the Idaho Simulation Network (ISN).
The trainings will provide progressive emergency scenarios in which the local EMS agency brings the patient to the CAH where stabilization occurs and where air medical services are contacted (as applicable). Simulations will incorporate TeamSTEPPS®methodology and ensure CAH staff and EMS providers work together to complete the scenarios. Each participating hospital will receive a copy of their simulation video and a detailed debrief, including an observation checklist. Please reference the application and sample materials for detailed descriptions of a potential scenario*, event agenda, expectations, team composition and planning items.
All Oregon CAHs are eligible to apply to participate, and must include the following application materials for consideration:
1. Cover Sheet
2. Executive Summary
3. Participation Request
4. Letter of EMS Collaboration
Applications will be accepted until 5pm on December 29, 2017, and notification of award will be made no later than 5pm on January 19, 2018.
Awardees will work with ISN staff to schedule all training activities, to occur on-site at selected CAHs between February and June, 2018.
For more information, please contact Rebecca Dobert, Field Services Program Coordinator, 503.494.6627, firstname.lastname@example.org
*Please note-sample scenarios are not required for use. Awardees may work with ISN to design scenarios to best meet individual training needs.
