GCSC to Hold Spring Inter-Professional Education Event

March 8 @ 8:00 am 4:00 pm

Gulf Coast State College will hold a Spring Interprofessional Education (IPE) event on its North Bay Campus on Friday, March 8, 2024, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CST.

All students from the nursing, health sciences, and public safety divisions, in conjunction with the unmanned vehicle systems (UVS) and digital media programs, will conduct an interprofessional simulation event to strengthen communication skills, clinical proficiency, and collaboration among the various disciplines. More than 500 students and over 50 faculty and staff members are expected to participate in the event.

The event will simulate a fiery bus crash resulting in simulated patients with smoke inhalation, respiratory distress, trauma, and burn-type injuries. There will also be several mock fatalities to simulate patient identification practices using dental forensic science. There may be disruptive activity including loud sirens, high-speed vehicles, etc., but please note that it is not an actual emergency.

For additional information, please contact Jennifer Barber at 850.872.3837 or [email protected]
