This program is based on the National Emergency Nurses Association (NENA) Core Competencies of the Emergency Nurse. These Core Competencies are available on the NENA website at www.nena.ca. The course focuses on the Emergency care of the adult and the basic concepts of some pediatric variations in emergency care.
High Technology? ...or High Fidelity?
It is important to understand the differentiation between high-fidelity and high-technology. High-fidelity is the realism of a situation, high-technology is the ‘fanciness’ of simulation mannikins. EPICC uses high-fidelity simulation and in some environments may incorporate high-technology mannikins. EPICC uses evidence-based learning and assessment methods to fully engage the adult learner. Theoretical content is learned online before attending the courses. The courses use mixed learning methods of small and large group case studies and simulation – there is no powerpoint-style learning at the attended sessions. We believe in leveraging the “community”…when everyone is together at a course, we believe that learners should be interacting, not watching lectures.
