Avkin Simulators Highlighted in Regis in Haiti Course

Regis College Highlights Wearable Simulators in Haiti Course

Share This Post

Regis College in Weston, Massachusetts, held a 2-week, face-to-face course designed to enhance the simulation skills of Haitian nurse educators. The course adhered to the INACSL Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice, HSSBP. The nine Haitian nurse educators who attended are in leadership positions at various hospitals and nursing schools across Haiti.

Avkin’s wearable simulators were highlighted in ‘Regis in Haiti’. Our high-fidelity, wearable tracheostomy simulator, Avtrach, was highlighted during the 2-week course. Due to its compact and approachable technology, it was easy to incorporate and implement during the short course. Avkin is excited by the partnership and believes its devices are the answer for simulation courses like Regis’. The founder and CEO of Avkin, Amy Cowperthwait, RN, MSN, CNS, CHSE-A , says “Institutions that are implementing short-term simulation courses should be using Avkin simulators. You can have a real patient in the bed that can walk and talk, it is the newest technology, and with Bluetooth and haptic feedback the products are extremely user friendly.

The course, part of the Regis in Haiti program, was made in 2020 when Regis College was awarded a grant from the Wagner Foundation. The Wagner Foundation is focused on creating “a just and robust community where everyone is valued equally and has the ability to imagine, shape, pursue, and sustain the lives they wish to lead.”

Not only was this course set to promote the use of HSSBP in simulation education, but it also introduces new or improved methods to facilitate nursing simulation and enable participants to best utilize and strengthen existing education resources in their programs. Avkin hopes to provide continued support to institutions wanting to implement standardized patients and wearable simulators.
