POISE Network-Patient Outcomes
in Simulation Education

POISE (Patient Outcomes In Simulation Education) continues to develop novel educational training modules that result in measurable improvements in the health outcomes of acutely ill infants and children. Led by Dr. Marc Auerbach and Dr. David Kessler, this collaborative medical education research network, sponsored by R Baby since its inception, has trained over 550 pediatric interns (approximately 20% of all pediatric interns in the country), and approximately 200 educators at 30 leading academic medical centers. Over 100 teaching physicians are actively involved in the POISE community through a website, faculty train-the-trainer curricula, and monthly "expert" webinars. POISE research projects have been published and presented at international research conferences, and POISE has been accepted to present four papers at the 2011 International Meeting of Simulation in Healthcare and to conduct a workshop at the International Pediatric Academic Society conference. POISE is currently forming an oversight committee with some of the international leaders in the field which will help shape the network over the upcoming months in order to impact the maximum number of patients through a global simulation curriculum and modules that will be broadly disseminated, free of charge, to any provider caring for children throughout the world.

FIRST YEAR ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
POISE (Patient Outcomes In Simulation Education) continues to develop novel educational training modules that result in measurable improvements in the health outcomes of acutely ill infants and children. POISE training modules apply cutting edge educational techniques and technologies with the singular goal of improving real patient outcomes. Our collaborative medical education research network has trained over 800 pediatric interns at 30 leading academic medical centers. Over 100 teaching physicians are actively involved the POISE community through a website, faculty train-the-trainer curricula, and monthly invited "expert" webinars. POISE research projects have been published and presented at international research conferences. In order to impact the maximum number of patients, POISE modules will be broadly disseminated, free of charge, to any provider caring for children throughout the world.
