Wallcur To Provide Custom Practice Medication Packages For Elsevier's SimChart®

Stocks in this article: ENL REN RUK

PHILADELPHIA, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Wallcur's Practi-Pack pre-built practice medication packages to complement Elsevier's simulated electronic health record learning tool for nursing students 

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced that Wallcur, a provider of practice medications for clinical simulation and health education, will make custom practice medications available to Elsevier's SimChart customers.

Nursing schools using Elsevier's SimChart, an educational electronic health record (EHR), have access to multiple hands-on, evidence-based practice scenarios that include preparing and administering of medications to patients. Through Elsevier's relationship with Wallcur, SimChart customers now have the ability to purchase Practi-Packs, pre-built packages of medications that match up with 10 SimChart simulated cases.

"Hands-on experience in a clinical setting is key for the advancement of health science students, and practice with proper medication administration is an important part of that education," said John Danaher, President, Education, Elsevier. "Providing students with realistic practice medications allows them to learn in a safe environment and encourages preparedness for the clinical setting."

The Practi-Packs have bar codes, enabling students to verify drug type and dosage when administering the practice medication. The medication information also populates the EHR. The simulation cases provide a realistic look and feel of a clinical setting and allow students to treat different patient ailments with the Practi-Packs.

"Our mission at Wallcur is to provide products that simulate clinical learning in a safe, non-clinical environment," said Wendy LaGrange, Director of Sales & Marketing, Wallcur. "By partnering with Elsevier, we're able to make true-to-life medications available to health science students as they prepare for the challenges of tomorrow's healthcare system."

A sample simulation case includes a patient with myocardial infarction who is experiencing hypertension and chest pain. After assessing the simulated patient's symptoms, the student will use the pre-packaged Practi-Packs to properly care for the patient. Each Practi-Pack will have either two or four sets of the needed medications so students can run through the scenario several times to encourage an increased level of comfort with the medication administration and scenario results.
