Educational Content

Integrate simulation into your training environment with our specialty-based curriculum and cases

Today’s caregivers face extraordinary challenges every day, from rapid advancements in technology to the constant search for ways to improve patient safety and care. Based on today's best practices, we have developed a rich library of Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs), e-Learning modules, patient pathologies and medical cases that produce outcomes based on each learner's performance.

Learning Modules 

Realistic clinical experiences from various disciplines for easy integration into any curriculum/program

Patient Pathologies

Scan various cardiac, pleural, abdominal or ob/gyn pathologies on our Vimedix ultrasound simulators

ICCU for Ultrasound

eLearning curriculum for ultrasound exams and procedures covering all key aspects of critical care ultrasound

Surgical Cases

Practice basic hand-eye skills to advanced procedures in laparoscopic, endoscopic, arthroscopic and open cranial neurosurgery

CAE Healthcare Academy's vision is to advance healthcare practices and improve patient outcomes. Our mission is to be the partner of choice to identify needs, create and implement tailored solutions towards improving safety and outcomes in healthcare globally. As part of our mission, we have partnered with leading scientific and professional societies and educational institutions such as the American College of Chest Physicians, the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine, the Montreal Heart Institute, WakeMed Center for Innovative Learning, Baystate Medical Center and others to develop simulation-based curriculum and cases, and our content has been endorsed by leading societies.

Simulation curriculum and patient cases developed in collaboration with leading educational institutions

SCEs and patient cases reviewed by healthcare educators to ensure they convey best practices and standards of care

We incorporate rich patient content, from lab reports and x-rays to patient histories, based on real patient data

We frequently update our curriculum based on the latest society guidelines and in collaboration with subject matter experts

All of our SCEs include a scenario synopsis, learning objectives, learner performance measures, facilitator's notes, debriefing points, teaching questions and evidence-based references

We provide simple cases for beginners, and also a full range of complex scenarios and procedures to help practicing clinicians improve preparation and readiness

We offer the widest breadth of scenarios and cases, developed over 15 years in simulation, so learners can gain exposure to more patients than they would over years in practice

Our simulators can present multiple pathologies and complications to allow practice of emergency management response

PNCI - PROGRAM FOR NURSING CURRICULUM INTEGRATION

Ground-breaking learning package that was the first to integrate prelicensure curriculum with high-fidelity patient simulation

About

Developed in partnership with leading educational institutions, the Program for Nursing Curriculum Integration, or PNCI, is a ground-breaking learning package that was the first to integrate prelicensure curriculum with high-fidelity patient simulation. Originally organized over four semesters, PNCI was updated in 2012 to address ten nurse competencies.

PNCI offers turnkey patient simulation that is aligned with nursing education competencies,including assessment, fundamentals, medical-surgical, high acuity, chronic, community, obstetrics, pediatrics, infants and leadership. The 100 evidence-based Simulated Clinical Experiences (SCEs) were designed to operate with CAE Healthcare’s line of patient simulators, but can be used with other simulators as well. PNCI meets the 2010 NCLEX Test Plan, and is also available for Canadian and UK curriculums.

PNCI can be customized for adult, pediatric or infant nursing specialties.  To ensure smooth execution of PNCI into the curriculum, CAE Healthcare’s team of experienced nurse educators deliver onsite faculty development and ongoing consultation to answer any questions that arise.

TACTICAL MEDICAL CARE (TMC)

Improve proficiency and sustain the required skills of combat and civilian tactical medics

About

With every year that passes, weapons and tactics used in tactical situations are becoming increasingly more advanced. For that reason, our military and tactical medics must be ready with the most advanced medical training available. CAE Healthcare’s Tactical Medical Care Learning Module (TMC) provides the tools needed to improve proficiency and sustain the required skills of combat and civilian tactical medics. The SCEs listed in TMC are consistent with Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3).

The TMC Learning Module includes 30 SCEs that give the educator the ability to conduct and meet specific training objectives. This methodology is consistent with a “train as you fight” approach that is derived from lessons learned in current theater of operations around the world.
