Making Healthcare Safer with Simulation from CAE Healthcare
CAE’s first healthcare training eBook, “SIMULATION: Making a Difference. Making Healthcare Safer” debuted in September 2019. This downloadable eBook presents the history, current status, and the promise for implementing healthcare simulation as a routine part of training, in an easy-to-read and visually-appealing, downloadable format.
Within just nine (9) succinct, but value-packed pages, this informative quick read makes the case for implementing a simulation-based medical education (SBME) approach to healthcare training. It provides specific insights, supported with useful data, to focus attention on the worldwide crisis of patient safety. After briefly introducing the relevance for the ebook (the initial section opens with the phrase “First, do no harm”), “SIMULATION” reveals its 6 topic sections, each one emphasizing a specific area of simulation-based training.
Published during Healthcare Simulation Week 2019, this eBook was CAE Healthcare’s most downloaded and most popular content pieces of the year!
Table of Contents:
- Introduction: Simulation and Safer Healthcare
- Training in Anesthesia Management with Simulation
- Simulation for Team-based Clinical Skills Development
- Improving Maternal Outcomes Through Immersive Technology
- Saving Lives with Prehospital and Emergency Care Simulation
- Simulation Training for Effective, Safer Neonatal Healthcare
- A Look Forward
The book suggests helpful advice such as when “in a simulation scenario, learners can develop essential non-technical skills (i.e., management of emotions, decision making aptitude, situational awareness) by performing team-oriented tasks just as they would in a real-life situation, allowing for team members to:
- Strengthen group communication skills, even under high-stress situations
- Develop productive tactical knowledge and conducive metacognitive aptitudes
- Learn from mistakes and receive feedback during debriefing sessions
- Understand how standardized teamwork behaviors can lead to safer healthcare”

The traditional ways in which clinicians were educated in the past are no longer adequate for dealing with the realities of healthcare today.
Patient needs and care environments have become more complex and healthcare providers are called upon to fulfill ever-expanding roles wherein they must learn to master technologically-advanced tools and changing information systems. They must develop the ability to better collaborate and coordinate across teams for the overall benefit of the patients for whom they care.
By providing learners, training facilitators and medical professionals with the highest-in-quality of training resources, CAE believes risk-free simulation training can help to develop better clinicians, and that practical training experience (before treating real patients) is one viable way to improve healthcare and enhance patient safety.
