HIGH FIDELITY SIMULATION MANNEQUIN
STATEMENT OF WORK (SOW) 2018
Contract Title. Acquisition of High Fidelity Manikin SimMan 3G with accessories and training for the PVAHCS Simulation Center.
This contract is for the acquisition of a SimMan 3G High Fidelity Manikin and accessories that will be located in the Simulation Center of PVAHCS to be used in training and testing of healthcare staff. This is to include training for said product.
Delivering high quality advanced training and simulated experiences with skills opportunities requires training to take place at the right time and place with the most appropriate simulation equipment. Simulation-based training has been shown to improve healthcare quality and reduce errors (Asche, et al., 2017). In order to meet new challenges and facilitate the growing demand for insitu and multidisciplinary training, the need for flexible state-of-the-art training solutions are critical. The application of simulation in healthcare are diverse and studies have shown its benefits in improving learner, patient and healthcare system outcomes (Asche, et al., 2017).
With SimMan 3G and the SimMan ALS Manikins the simulationist can train, educate, and demonstrate in the actual environments in which staff, residents, and students will be working. Completely wireless, self-contained, rugged and reliable, SimMan 3G and ALS Manikins can help one achieve the optimal training environment with the most realistic outcomes possible. These High-Fidelity Manikins will afford the Simulation Center the ability to train, teach, demonstrate, and simulate from Basic Life Support (BLS) to the most advanced classes such as Out of Operating Room Airway Management (OOORAM) Training and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) to everything in-between.
