Sim NewB Already Having a Big Impact in the North


Sim NewB is the welcome new addition to the Northern Clinical Simulation Program that is having a big impact in the North. In the short time it has been on site, Sim NewB has supported five training sessions that have resulted in fifteen local health care professionals receiving their Neonatal Resuscitation Certification.

Focusing on the first 10 minutes of life, Sim NewB will support regional neonatal healthcare training for both certification and recertification for the Neonatal Resuscitation Program. This state-of-the-art neonatal infant simulator will be used to create simulations that require a series of emergency procedures to be performed by healthcare teams to support newborn babies who are not breathing, are gasping, or have a weak heartbeat at birth. Having this resource supports realism and provides healthcare teams the ability to practice rare cases to better prepare them for real clinical situations.

Educational equipment such as Sim NewB play a pivotal role in the Northern Clinical Simulation Program. With the advancement in technology, the program brings cutting edge education to both upcoming and current healthcare professionals ranging from clinical staff, physicians, and medical students. Clinical Simulation combines state of the art robotic patient simulators with operating and debriefing technologies to enable a safe environment for learning and skill development.

“We are so thankful to our donors who make additions like Sim NewB possible, and who see the impact these state-of-the-art educational tools have within our region. This addition will directly impact our littlest patients here at home” said Aimee Cassie, CEO of Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. “It is paramount that our healthcare professionals have access to hands-on educational tools that have long-term benefits throughout the North.”
