Medical Simulation Corporation to Introduce Ventilator Associated Pneumonia Program at International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare
Date:1/5/2009

VAP in a dynamic and hands-on training format utilizing simulation to allow healthcare providers to put the recommendations into practice. MSC's program features content and patient simulation scenarios appropriate for all provider levels, from new nurses and residents to advanced practice ICU nurses and attending physicians.

"Ventilator associated pneumonia, or VAP, is a significant cause of death and prolonged intubation in the intensive care unit. Establishing standardized protocols and education programs has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of VAP," says Dr. Brian Graham, pulmonary fellow at the University of Colorado, and VAP program author. "MSC's simulation-based Ventilator Associated Pneumonia Program provides standardized guidance on how to modify practices to prevent, diagnose, and treat VAP in a risk-free, but realistic training environment."

Mini-courses featuring the Ventilator Associated Program will be available to IMSH attendees at the MSC booth (#118) in the IMSH Exhibit Hall, Monday, January 12 and Tuesday, January 13. Attendees are encouraged to register for a mini-course before the conference by visiting MSC online at www.medsimulation.com.
