The Circle of Learning
A systematic approach to learning
The Circle of Learning is a systematic approach to learning and teaching. It can be used to help organize and prioritize the areas of learning most relevant to your educational objectives.
SimJunior is an interactive pediatric simulator, designed by Laerdal with the American Academy of Pediatrics to meet the education and training needs of healthcare providers.
SimJunior represents a 6-year-old boy that simulates a wide range of conditions from a healthy, talking child to an unresponsive, critical patient with no vital signs.
SimJunior allows learners to focus on a broad range of pediatric skills in order to gain exposure and practical experience of life-threatening pediatric problems.
Available with a range of Technical and Educational Services, as well as validated simulation content, SimJunior presents a complete simulation solution for your pediatric training programs.
Learner outcomes improve through structured debriefing after a simulation-based learning event. SimCapture seamlessly integrates with LLEAP (for PC and SimPad PLUS) providing a debriefing and assessment solution that captures audio, video, annotations, the patient monitor, and simulator data in a single web-based interface.
Developed in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, you now have new opportunities to integrate the latest technologies into pediatric and newborn training programs.
Pairing this product solution with educational content developed and validated by organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, allows learners to master the skills needed to care for pediatric patients and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
Laerdal Educational Services offer instructor-led on-site courses to help instructors implement best practices in simulation using hands-on interactive content. Courses range from how to get started, to basic simulation, to advanced use of simulators. We also offer consultative and custom solutions to help with more specific needs.
