Health: Simulation pedagogy is essential in CHU Dijon Burgogen

Within the University Hospital Center, the new campus of the Health Simulation Center, which has tripled its surface area, was inaugurated on 15 June.

The health simulation center at CHU Dijon Bourgogne has moved a few meters away, but over the past few weeks it has been on a more functional premises than Rue Paul-Gaffarel. Next to Boulevard Marechal-de-Latre-de-Tasaini, the center is now housed in the B2 Medical Building, which is owned by the University of Burgundy.

On Wednesday, June 15, 2022, the Director General of the Health Organization, Nadezhda Bailey, emphasized the need for a symbolic installation, which would allow a substantial increase in capacity for initial and continuous training.

“Improving collective intelligence through active and adaptive learning”

Latemotif “Never the first time on a patient!” Was implemented ten years ago and re-confirmed during the inauguration of the new premises. According to Nadiège Baille, the move is valid because “the concept has shown its relevance in medical and paramedical training. It is about immersing the student in a realistic framework and improving collective intelligence through active and adaptive learning.”

According to statistics from the activity report provided by CHU Dijon Bourgogne, in 2021, 1,500 students were welcomed and 400 sessions were organized, specializing in pediatrics, emergency medicine, anesthesia-resuscitation, obstetrics, ultrasound and surgery. Out of 1,500 students, 900 students received basic training, 450 paramedical staff and 50 physicians continued their education.

The services of the Health Simulation Center, CHU Dijon Bourgogne, in other words its staff but also educational equipment and furniture, are jointly funded by the Health Agency with Georges-Francois Leclerc.
Health institutions for continuing education for health professionals are funded by training plans of hospitals in the region that may benefit from the system under GHT 21-52.

For paramedical students on CHU’s paramedical campus, in the case of elementary training or continuing education, an annual contract allows them to benefit from their tools. For medical interns, it is the university hospital that finances their simulation training.

1,000 m2 dedicated to digital and full-scale simulation

According to Professor Mark Maynadi, dean of the UFR of Health Sciences, the simulation is “a new way of learning but only in his teens”. Professor Emanuel Simon, head of the Center for Gynecology-Obstetrics and Reproductive Biology, said it makes it possible to reduce risk, especially for patients, and has the resources to ramp up in this area of ​​the CHU Disney Borgon center. In this sense, Professor Dr. was in favor of the alliance between digital technology and artificial intelligence.

The 1,000 m2 compound was then visited by health professionals and elected officials, especially invited by the Burgundy-Franche-Comté Regional Council. The simulation center is spread over two levels. Five digital simulation rooms allow the newborn to practice cardiac massage, cardiac ultrasound, but also pulmonary and digestive fibroscopy, cellioscopy, endovascular.

“According to the study, 20% of a speech and 80% of a practical exercise are retained,” he said. Ninon Tarnoy, Pediatric Instructor and Medical Coordinator at the Simulation Center Explains: “Students are also interested in seeing how they work as a team, how they organize themselves, and how they are led. Communication is the battle sign of every patient care because professionals know the gestures. “They can repeat them through digital simulations.

The purpose of the three full-scale simulation chambers, including debriefing, is to move from manipulation as a team to crisis management, as closely as possible to reality in the situation. A lab room and a biology room have been added to the system.

The educational team consists mainly of four doctors and a pediatrician, who can be supported by imitation graduates in education.

Installation on new premises will not lead to short-term investment in new equipment, the idea will be able to accommodate more students. You can also contact any professional center outside of CHU, with initial or continuing training.
