Title: Development and Evaluation of a Series of Virtual Simulation Games for Nurses and Nursing Students in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Description: This presentation will review the development and evaluation of a series of COVID-19 virtual simulation game (VSG) educational modules. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and the Canadian Alliance of Nurse Educators using Simulation (CAN-Sim) collaborated to provide essential education for nurses and nursing students. In less than two weeks, a team of simulation and clinical experts met online to develop an educational module focusing on COVID-19 assessment and personal protective equipment (PPE).  This module was designed to strengthen the capacity of graduating nursing students and practicing nurses to provide care during the COVID-19 health crisis. Available in both official languages, this module included the comprehensive VSG along with valuable related resources such as self-assessment rubrics, methods of virtual debriefing, reflective questions and preparatory readings.  The VSG focused on priority assessments and required PPEs from the patient's initial telephone contact with the public health nurse, referral to a COVID Assessment Centre, then treatment in the Emergency Department (ED).  To date, this educational module has been accessed by over 750,000 users and implemented in nursing programs across Canada and globally. Subsequently, with funding from Health Canada, another collaboration has resulted in the creation of five new bilingual VSG modules related to nursing care during COVID-19 including: (1) running a Code Blue; (2) fluid volume deficit in a geriatric patient; (3) deteriorating patient with respiratory distress; (4) airway management and ventilator care; and (5) multi-organ dysfunction.

Presenter biographies:
Marian Luctkar-Flude RN, PhD, CCSNE
Dr. Marian Luctkar-Flude is an Associate Professor at the Queen's University School of Nursing. She has over 20 years' experience as a medical-surgical nurse and nurse educator.  She has been involved in clinical simulation since 2005 when she was appointed as the Nursing Lab Coordinator. During that time she led development of the Queen's nursing simulation program and collaborated with colleagues from the School of Medicine and the School of Rehabilitation Therapy to develop, implement and evaluate a series of interprofessional simulation modules. She continues to be involved in curriculum development using various simulation strategies and was awarded the Queen's University Faculty of Health Sciences Education Award for Excellence and Innovation in Teaching in 2014.

Dr. Luctkar-Flude has been an active member of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) since 2010 and currently serves on the Research Committee and the Editorial Board of the journal Clinical Simulation in Nursing. She is a Co-President of the Canadian Alliance of Nurse Educators using Simulation (CAN-SIM) and teaches in the CAN-Sim simulation and virtual simulation game design courses. She is also a Certified Canadian Simulation Nurse Educator (CCSNE) and teaches in the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) Simulation Certification Program. Her program of research initially focused on curriculum development and interprofessional education using simulation, and in 2016 she was the recipient of the INACSL Excellence in Research Award in recognition of this work. More recently she was awarded the 2019 CASN Pat Griffin Nursing Education Research Scholar Award in recognition of her innovative research related to nursing education and virtual simulation. Her current research interests include faculty development, presimulation preparation, and virtual simulation games. She is the recipient of numerous educational research grants, has published widely in the field of simulation-based education, and has presented at numerous regional, national, and international conferences and scientific conferences. She is known as a collaborator and mentor amongst her nursing and interprofessional colleagues in the simulation community.

Jane Tyerman RN, PhD, CCSNE
Dr. Jane Tyerman is an Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, School of Nursing.  She has over 25 years of experience in acute care clinical practice and 15 years academic teaching experience both at the graduate and undergraduate levels.  She received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Ottawa, Bachelor of Nursing from Athabasca University, and her Master of Science and PhD from Queens University.  She is an Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) instructor with the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.  

Dr. Tyerman has made significant contributions to nursing education through advancing the pedagogy that underpins the effective use of clinical simulation, as well as through her innovative use of technology to expand equity and access to high-quality teaching and learning resources. Dedicated to providing faculty development supporting simulation-based learning, she contributed to the development of the CASN Certified Canadian Simulation Nurse Educator (CCSNE) program and instructs course modules focusing on simulation design, evaluation and scholarship.  She was the 2019 recipient of the CASN Excellence in Nursing Education (Non-tenured) award and the 2020 INACSL Spirit of Leadership Award.  Dr. Tyerman's research and publications focus on nursing simulation design, development, curriculum implementation, and virtual simulation using serious games.  She has multiple publications related to simulation and virtual simulation games.  She holds the 2019 Clinical Simulation in Nursing Non-Research Article of the Year. Dr. Tyerman has held various grants exploring impact virtual serious games in nursing education on student learning and related cost-utility. She is currently the co-president of the Canadian Alliance of Nursing Educators using Simulation (CAN-Sim).  Dr. Tyerman is known for her dedication, innovations, collaborations and mentorship encouraging nurse educators to excel in the delivery of simulation-based education.
