Healthcare Simulation requires clinical education, training, and patient safety organizations to develop new operational management strategies in-order to maximize simulation program efficiency and effectiveness, as well as to minimize staff burnout. As such, here we take a closer look at Chapter 15 “The Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist and Management” in the Springer published book Comprehensive Healthcare [...]
As with many healthcare professions, being able to practice physical therapy cases prior to entering the field can provide valuable experience to future physical therapists. DxR Development Group’s VirtualPT Clinician software mirrors the clinical reasoning process used by physical therapists. This clinical simulation is designed to teach, and evaluate key critical-thinking skills solutions. VirtualPT Clinician [...]

Healthcare Simulation centers are being developed across the globe, with many different layouts and designs. To provide a glimpse into these clinical education spaces, a number of healthcare simulation centers have had virtual tours created. Exploring how clinical simulation centers are laid out can provide a source of inspiration while helping to identify center uses [...]
Does healthcare simulation training help to reduce malpractice rates across obstetrics and gynecology? A team of five medical professionals sought to find an answer to this question through their original research entitled “Association of Simulation Training With Rates of Medical Malpractice Claims Among Obstetrician–Gynecologists”, published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Specifically, the data [...]
