Nurses in India Practice to Improve Patient Outcomes with CAE Juno
This Juno manikin, which arrived in January of 2018, is the first of its kind in India, and its presence here will have far-reaching effects. In addition to its role in the training of 400 future nurses annually at BBH, this Juno will also be part of the hospital’s national simulation workshops to disseminate best practices in nursing simulation education throughout India.
The Juno clinical skills training manikin from CAE Healthcare is at the heart of a first-of-its-kind study to determine the effects of simulation training in medicine—research that may help shape medical training worldwide.
Juno came to Bengaluru, India through Bangalore Baptist Hospital's longstanding relationship with Baylor University. The two institutions’ partnership began in the 1970s when Baylor medical student missionaries were stationed at BBH, leading to decades of faculty collaboration and student-exchange programs.
Subsequently, Baylor and BBH faculty began working together on simulation training. This led to a $652,800 grant in 2017, from the U.S. Agency for International Development American Schools and Hospitals Abroad, to build Bangalore Baptist Hospital’s simulation center.
