UNE Clinical Simulation Program mentioned in NATA News

Laerdal SimMan was cared for by athletic training students and local EMS personnel after his on-ice cervical spine injury

Assistant Clinical Professor Christopher Rizzo, MS, ATC, LAT, CSCS, and the UNE Clinical Simulation Program were mentioned in the January issue of the NATA News, the newsletter for the National Athletic Trainers' Association, for the on-ice program involving local EMS and UNE athletic training staff and security personnel last November.

Rizzo and Assistant Clinical Professor Dawne-Marie Dunbar, MSN/Ed, RN, CNE, of the Department of Nursing, coordinated an interprofessional exercise in which one of UNE's 3G wireless mannequins was outfitted fully with hockey equipment and used to simulate a traumatic cervical spine injury on the ice of the new Harold Alfond Forum.

Kristen Bailey, MS, ATC, LAT, an assistant clinical professor in the Athletic Training Education Program, teamed up with athletic training students and local EMS personnel to provide care to the injured "athlete." A debriefing session involving dozens of local athletic trainers, students, and other healthcare providers followed.   "This is the first in a series of events featuring UNE's Laerdal SimMan 3G Simulator," said Rizzo.
