Pao Ying Hsiao, assistant professor in the Department of
Food and Nutrition, presented “Assessing the Effectiveness of Clinical Simulation in Nutrition Students Using ADIME scores” at the 100th Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo in Chicago (October 21–24, 2017).
Hsiao’s presentation was based off research (Project InterSim) completed with the faculty and students from the Department of Nursing and
Allied Health Professions and the Department of Communication Disorders,
Special Education, and Disability Services.
Co-authors of the poster presentation were Emily Skarbowski (master’s student, Food and Nutrition), Nicole Clark (associate professor, Food and Nutrition) and Johanna Boothby (assistant professor, Nursing).
Project InterSim is an ongoing research project that aims to study the use of simulation for interprofessional education. This particular research study was funded in part by an IUP College of Health and Human Services Research Incentive grant and the
PASSHE Professional Development Council Innovation in Teaching and Improvement in Student Outcomes award.
