American College of Cardiology and Center of Excellence for Simulation Research of Western Michigan University (CESR) Partner for in situ Simulation to Improve Team Communication and Door-to-Balloon (D2B) Time
Date:10/20/2008

ESR

The Center of Excellence for Simulation Research (CESR) is a multimillion- dollar simulation research center supported by grants from the state of Michigan's Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), and pier reviewed by the American Academy for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Through the use of strategically designed scenarios and advanced simulation devices, (CESR) of Western Michigan University replicates real-world situations to evaluate systems, processes and team behaviors in health care organizations. Key features are the design of the simulation model, in situ simulation, and the use of video debriefing. The system uses reality-inspired scenarios of complex patient situations that require effective team coordination to achieve safe patient care (Hamman et al., 2007). While other organizations can merely observe situations that happen to occur in the health care institution, CESR can trigger situations that will force health care teams and the corresponding health care systems to function in emergent and critical scenarios without the stress of being a real patient.
