In collaboration with the Simulator Program, Caitlin O’Brien and Denise Casey of the NICU presented their work on implementing structured debriefs following clinical events at AACNs NTI conference.  Using techniques that were taught by SIMPeds the NICU has successfully bridged the simulation and clinical environments. In addition, they were designated Beacon Gold in 2011 and 2015.  These awards are evidence of positive work environments, stellar leadership structures, evidence-based practice, improvement science and positive outcomes for patients, families and staff.
