Minimizing Miscommunication: Using Simulation to Strengthen Communication in Nursing Education

A webinar featuring Dr. Stacie Hunsaker from Brigham Young University

Miscommunication is responsible for 30% of malpractice claims in the United States. 

To prevent these all-too-common errors, Dr. Stacie Hunsaker uses simulation. She has found that with a TeamSTEPPS foundation, simulation scenarios, and reflection assignments, students can develop strong leadership and teamwork skills to minimize communication failures. 

In this free webinar, Stacie:

  • Presents a curriculum map integrating TeamSTEPPS principles 
  • Shares specific simulation scenarios to strengthen communication and teamwork  
  • Answers questions submitted by attendees of the live workshop
