Abstract or Summary

Background: Orientation to scenario equipment, including manikin function and capability, is a preparatory requirement for simulation. Orientating large number of participants can be a significantly time-consuming process. Methods: Using SimMan software, the authors developed a program that uses SimMan 3G sensory capacity to initiate and facilitate a manikin-led orientation. The program is initiated by touch and uses voice changer to record dialogue that is uploaded into a scenario designed to explain manikin features and engage students in orientation activities. Results: This innovations article provides instructions on how the manikin-led orientation was developed, its use, and the challenges and opportunities for everyday use in simulation preparation. Conclusion: This initiative presents a cost-effective orientation method that is simple to implement and highly effective for preparing students for simulations that involve manikins. The process is simple to tailor to any induction scenario, and there are opportunities to apply the concept to address other teaching situations.
