Training — Mount Carmel Center for Innovative Learning
This is where better, more innovative care begins. The Mount Carmel Center for Innovative Learning is a dynamic, system-wide training center that's available to all our physicians, nurses, colleagues, students and community partners. Located on the Mount Carmel West campus, this state-of-the-art, 11,000-square-foot Center is a collaboration among the Mount Carmel College of Nursing, Mount Carmel Medical Education and the Mount Carmel Medical Staff that allows members of our healthcare delivery teams to:
- Work and train together
- Develop new skills and processes
- Identify problems
- Implement patient-focused team treatment
- Enhance quality care
- Improve patient outcomes
Driven by Technology
This is where technology allows us to practice real-life medical situations every day, to perfect patient care and improve outcomes. A key feature of the Center for Innovative Learning is the computer-driven, high-fidelity patient simulators, which are life-like adult and pediatric mannequins that breathe, blink and bleed. They have precise internal mechanics and respond physiologically to user interventions, allowing both our students and medical professionals to see, practice and react to real-life patient situations in a controlled environment.
The Center also features a unique laparoscopic surgical simulator that replicates seven different laparoscopic surgeries and over 60 patient scenarios, including general surgery, gynecology, urology, bariatric surgery and colon and rectal surgery. It also includes a top-of-the-line endoscopic simulator for upper and lower gastrointestinal procedure training, as well as task trainings for practicing an array of different medical procedures. The Center also includes:
- A multimedia classroom
- A skills classroom
- Two debriefing rooms with video capability to review completed simulations
- Data-collection and outcome-monitoring technologies
