Introduction to the Element of Practice


time erodes skills

Time inevitably erodes our skills. So how do we stay prepared for this high stakes low frequency event? The answer is simple. Regular practice. In this space we review the key elements of effective practice: review of relevant anatomy, the eFONA procedure, and tools to help you get the regular practice you need in the real world.

Enhanced Digital Content

Use this learning space in two ways. As an online course, scroll down and enter the online learning space. Explore each section below, or use the navigation tool to go directly to the content you’re interested in. Then, use this enhanced digital content in one of our pop-up physical spaces for hands-on procedure training, skills challenges, and expert coaching.

The Physical Learning Space

Procedures, Skills, Coaching

integrated digital & Physical space

This online learning space has enhanced content designed to be part of an immersive, hands-on training lab. The interactive graphic posters create pop-up learning in the physical space for procedure training, skills challenges, expert coaching, simulations, and team training opportunities.

Guided Visualization

practice without equipment??

We often think that practicing a procedure requires physical models upon which to perform that procedure, but that is not entirely true. While regular training with realistic high fidelity models is ideal, it’s not always feasible. Visualization is a proven training method that can actually have a positive impact on your muscle memory.

We created this audio tool for our hands-on self-guided stations, but it’s also great for guided visualization practice. Go ahead and close your eyes, listen to this audio, and then imagine yourself walking through the steps of the FONA procedure. Then, see if it doesn’t help you in your hands-on practice! For more on guided visualization and other performance-enhancing tools. Visit our online Stress Lab here.
