Session Type: Education

Session Description: Opening a new children’s hospital requires interdisciplinary planning to bridge the knowledge and experience gaps for everything new and different. This session highlights five children's hospitals that used Simulation Based Testing events to prepare staff to safely care for patients after the hospital opened. The overall process will be discussed.
Primary Presenter Bio: Lynn has over 20 years of healthcare experience as a pediatric registered nurse and currently serves as the Director of Transition Planning at HTS and the Director of Transition and Activation Planning at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford. Her healthcare experience includes clinical education and college-level teaching. As a transition planner, Lynn has assisted over 30 healthcare facilities in the planning and implementation of hundreds of Simulation Based Testing events.
Primary Presenter Institution: HTS, Inc. and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford
Presenter 2 Institution: PIH
Presenter 2 Bio: Erica has over 8 years of Transition Planning experience and serves as a project specialist at HTS and is also an oncology nurse. Erica is one of the co-creators of the “Day in the Life” Simulation Based Testing event module, used across North America to ensure hospital staff are ready to care for patients on move day and beyond.
