1/26/2018

Very interactive, very informative, use of good examples, true stories, started with reviews every morning
1/24/2018

They are knowlegeable. They know their materials. The sim lab helped me understand more of whats going on with the scenarios.
1/22/2018

Great speakers and very informative. Everybody is learning.
1/30/2018

The three speakers were amazing!
1/29/2018

very informative and great learning moments
1/30/2018

I love the sim lab, we get to participate and be a team. Working hand-in-hand, troubleshooting.
1/30/2018

The hands on portion was the best. It was helpful to have lectures the first few days, but then we all were able to apply the information to hands-on training.
1/29/2018

the training team was very experience and knowledgeable, they related experiences that were very helpful
1/29/2018

Overall a great day. Had no idea what to expect, but was thoroughly impressed.
2/14/2018 12:54 PM

Highly recommend your program! Don’t change a thing!
2/13/2018 8:04 AM

Casual friendly excellent learning environment!!!
2/13/2018 8:04 AM

Hands on, and breaking up session so not sitting all the time.
2/15/2018 8:43 AM

VERY impressed with this training. Have not been disappointed. Beautiful facility.
2/14/2018 1:00 PM

That the instructors are interactive and are very genuine about wanting to help us learn.
2/14/2018 8:04 AM

The live scenario session were so good!! Was able to practice skills in a safe environment
2/15/2018 1:07 PM

Everyone is so approachable and the group is small enough that the discussions were great
2/15/2018 9:18 AM

The calm and nurturing attitude of the instructors who helped me think through what I already know so that I can successfully apply that knowledge to ECMO.
2/15/2018 7:53 AM

I liked the hands on simulations. You can sit in a classroom all day and listen to information and stories, but until you're able to perform the skills yourself it is tough for the information to actually stick.
2/25/2018 9:02 PM

Instructors were engaging, easy to ask questions and very well versed in all things ECMO
2/20/2018 2:00 PM

Real life scenarios. Gave everybody the opportunity to have multiple hands on experiences and go over the multiple times what we didn't quite get the first or second time around. Loved that it was videoed so we could actually see what we did and didn't do.
2/23/2018 4:26 PM

Thank you to all the instructors and staff at ECMO Advantage! You are all an amazing group of people!! Truly the best of the best! I appreciate everything you've taught me this week!

2/16/2018

It was an honor to be one of the first students at your new facility. I had no idea what to expect going into this training, but the experience I gained was way better than I could've ever imagined. I learned so much in one week and gained valuable hands on experience. Thank you to each and every one of you for the time and effort you put into making it one of the best training experiences!
2/25/2018 9:02 PM

The hands on helped reinforce theory taught.
3/5/2018 11:30 PM

I really enjoyed the ability to interact with the machine and its components.
3/5/2018 9:36 PM

I have had no experience with ECMO in the past. I feel like I have learned a great deal after day 1 and feel by the end of my week that I will be eager to put my newly learned theory and practicum to work.
3/5/2018 11:30 PM

The lectures were in depth...but presented in a manner that was easily understandable and able to put into practice.
3/5/2018 9:36 PM

I love all the hands on training with the SIM! It’s an amazing setup and it puts all of the learned theory into clearer perspective.
3/9/2018 7:41 AM

What did you like the most?...
the team assignments and collective debriefing
3/7/2018 6:59 PM

Day three was fantastic! It was a perfect blend of lecture and hands on. I think there’s a huge benefit to lectures in the morning followed by SIM in the afternoon. It helps break up the day. It’s great to get moving around and applying the learned theory.
3/9/2018 7:41 AM

Loved that we could get up and move around if needed and that it was informal and comfortable to ask questions.
2/23/2018 4:26 PM

It was a lot of material and I would definitely like more education but the mixture of didactic and sims was great.
3/12/2018 7:16 AM

Q: Were the ECMO Advantage Specialists knowledgeable about the topics presented?

They were all great! Very knowledgeable, friendly, professional
3/13/2018 10:45 AM

Excellent SIM practice
5/11/2018 8:18 AM

I feel Sherry, Shanna, and Myron were very creative in scenarios and helped create scenarios specific to our unique transport situations
5/11/2018 8:16 AM

The practical simulations have been excellent in helping us learn how to deal with issues during ECMO. I like the variety and immersion of the sims.
5/11/2018 8:23 AM

Hands on training quickly followed the lectures to reenforce concepts
5/11/2018 8:17 AM

When asked What did you like the MOST?...

knowledge of instructors, creativity, feedback from scenarios, open , nonjudgemental attitudes of instructors, unending patience of instructors
5/11/2018 8:16 AM

this facility is fantastic.
5/11/2018 8:16 AM

Bravo to Myron!! wonderful job with the Sims! Especially with finding what we needed practice with, and making us do it! You did especially well in making us walk an ECMO. Great job! Thank you.

I came with training. Even so you all clarified my understanding and helped me to become better.

"The course was perfectly designed for experienced ECMO specialists as well as for beginners. It gives good understanding of general ECMO concepts as well as specific details regarding VA vs VV ECMO, coagulation, troubleshooting etc. which were fully reflected by highly competent speakers..."
8/10/2018 8:40 AM

Training sessions help to develop skills to be competent and independent in clinical practice. I liked analysis/feedback after each session which helped to understand better all clinical scenarios and learn from mistakes.
8/10/2018 8:40 AM

The training consisted of good combination of theoretical and practical knowledge which makes it valuable for prospective ECMO specialists of different backgrounds: RN, RT, PA etc.
8/10/2018 8:40 AM

As a perfusionist, we are taught ECMO in our schooling; however, the educational content within the course was superior to that I received in my program. Things are constantly changing within the ECMO world and having a refresher course was very nice.
10/10/2018 12:05 PM

I took this course as an "evaluator" to be able to reinforce the information conveyed to our ECMO Specialist nurses. The content delivered was very organized and well presented, overall.
10/10/2018 12:05 PM

More thorough ecmo circuit checks. Involving more in depth analysis of the global patient as opposed to just “the pump.”
9/21/2018 8:18 AM

I loved that there was so much sim
9/21/2018 8:21 AM

I like the SIM lab set up and felt it provided me with the skills I’ll need to run an ECMO pump.
9/20/2018 9:31 PM

I think that it was extremely helpful to the ECMO Specialist nurses. From a programmatic standpoint it was nice to see a different didactic layout that we are currently using. The whole experience was educational and positive.
10/10/2018 12:05 PM

Extremely organized, clean learning environment, very open to creating simulations based on the needs/desires of the participants - and THE SNACKS (lunches were always great too!)
10/10/2018 12:05 PM

Real life stories of actual patient events from the instructors aided in cementing discussed lecture concepts.
9/21/2018 8:18 AM

Hands on exposure. The complex scenarios were helpful. Thinking out loud, collaborating with others, disaster aversion, it was all be useful information to take home.
9/21/2018 8:16 AM

I thought the environment was really great. The Sim Lab and lecture area was very nice.
9/21/2018 9:18 AM

Your secretary is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met
9/21/2018 8:21 AM

The staff at ECMO Advantage couldn't have been more helpful. They would stay later with you if you needed more explanation. Great staff, fun & knowledgeable!
10/19/2018 8:17 AM

You have a great set-up and team.
10/19/2018 8:18 AM

I enjoyed the balance between didactic and hands on skills. I don’t think one side was over the top and both are needed to provide a good learning opportunity
10/19/2018 8:15 AM

SIM allows for mistakes and moment by moment decisions that everyone learns from
10/19/2018 8:15 AM

Shanna, Sarah Beth and Myron were all very helpful and reactive to requests for specific scenarios and made everyone comfortable with the learning process.
10/19/2018 8:15 AM

Hands on sessions are invaluable. Well equipped facility.
10/19/2018 8:14 AM

We just had this class at our hospital, and coming to the training center was great to reinforce what I learned and be able to have more complex thought processes with ECMO physiology and management.
10/19/2018 8:10 AM

Shanna and Myron were extremely knowledgeable and patient with our class. They took their time to answer questions and it is clear that they have a lot of experience and are passionate about the subject. You have a great staff that are very talented.
10/19/2018 8:15 AM

The interactiveness and hands on portion. It’s the perfect combination of lecture and hands on to ensure we are understanding the concepts.
1/18/2019 8:10 AM

Very comfortable. Great facility
1/18/2019 8:15 AM

Thank you it was awesome!
1/18/2019 8:11 AM

the instructors were very flexible with their time and willing to work in whatever we wanted to!
1/18/2019 8:11 AM

The hands on and group discussion for questions/demonstration was what I liked the most
