ORLANDO, Fla. – VHA staff attended the Simulation, Technology, Operations, Maintenance and Procedures (STOMP) 101 pilot course, the week of June 25 at the VHA SimLEARN National Simulation Center (NSC). The STOMP course was recently updated with new offerings planned for Fiscal Year 2019. This course provides participants with the baseline knowledge of local simulation program infrastructure and life cycle management of simulation assets, as well as basic hands-on skills to operate, maintain and recognize common deficiencies.
The target audience is comprised of novice personnel assigned to operate and maintain simulation assets within a facility. STOMP 101 teaches operations and maintenance of various mannequins and basic task trainers required to conduct immersive and valuable medical simulation training. This course combines small group and hands-on simulation activities where participants can demonstrate the competencies necessary to accomplish basic operations and functions within a simulated environment.
