SSH Journal Shares Top 100 Most Cited Healthcare Simulation Articles

In the June 2018 edition of the SSH’s “Simulation in Healthcare: The Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare” Volume 13 – Issue 3 – p 211–220, Chloe Walsh MSc and team report the 100 Most cited Medical Simulation Articles of all time. SSH Members can login to see the top 100 list, with the Top 10 being directly linked independently of the article’s source here below. In the article, the authors describe the methodology they utilized to determine the search results, including the strengths and weaknesses of their results. Regardless how accurate the Top 100 list is, certainly the articles shared there are among the leading research publications for our field. Have you utilized one of more of these citation in your clinical simulation research publication?

About The 100 Most Cited Articles on Healthcare Simulation: A Bibliometric Review Journal Article

This article provides an overview and synthesis of the 100 most cited healthcare simulation publications to provide insight into the articles that have shaped current knowledge and practice. Searches of the Scopus and Web of Science databases were conducted in July 2017. Most articles were concerned with medical education and training (86%) and were most often published in surgical journals (33%). Manikins (20%), standardized patients (16%), inanimate part-task trainers (16%), fully simulated environments (17%), and virtual reality part-task trainers (14%) were the most commonly featured types of simulators. Healthcare simulation research has matured and grown during the preceding decades. There has been a move away from research questions focused on “does simulation work?” to an assessment of the conditions under which simulation is most effective. It is hoped that providing an overview of highly cited works will help identify topics for further research.

Below is a list of the latest articles from the August 2018  Volume 13 Issue #4 of Simulation in Healthcare:
