Healthcare Simulation Dictionary: The Society for Simulation in Healthcare is a healthcare simulation organization that was designed to improve performance and reduce errors in patient care through the use of simulation. To help simulationists and learners worldwide become able to better identify clinical simulation terms, the organization created a healthcare simulation dictionary and released updated versions to meet the needs of the medical simulation community. The second edition (2.1) is currently available and helps enhance communication and clarity for healthcare simulationists in teaching, education, assessment, research, and systems integration activities.
The definitions featured within the Healthcare Simulation Dictionary are part of a collection that shows how various terms -and their meanings are being used in the profession today. Ultimately, this second edition expands on the 127 words of the first edition and includes a section on common abbreviations where 27 abbreviations were included. The simulation dictionary also features 40 new terms that have been added that were not in the first edition, and 12 terms that were expanded upon with additional definitions as reflected in the literature.
Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice: The International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) has developed the “INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation” to advance the science of simulation, share best practices, and provide evidence-based guidelines for implementation and training. Developing a set of best practices can help any healthcare simulation flourish, as these guidelines help promote successful learning and training outcomes. These Standards provide a detailed process for evaluating and improving simulation operating procedures and delivery methods that every simulation team will benefit from. Adoption of the “INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation” demonstrates a commitment to quality and implementation of rigorous evidence-based practices in healthcare education to improve patient care by complying with practice standards.
Lumeto: Lumeto is a software development company that was founded in 2021 to enable the future of work through an advanced XR simulation, training, and skills assessment platform named Involve XR. The platform enables institutions looking to deploy data-driven, enterprise-grade, immersive training and assessment across their workforce. Headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, the company operates across the healthcare and safety fields, with the goal to enhance learning outcomes tied to individual and team decision-making, problem-solving, de-escalation, and complex procedures.
Involve XR enables enhanced levels of learner assessment and benchmarking, providing learners an efficient way to remotely re-skill, up-skill, and study in live, synchronous, immersive, scenario-based learning environments. An open and flexible learning & assessment platform, Involve XR offers customization without the need for code, and integrates into enterprise data and learning management systems.
Symgery: Symgery is an education service provider focused on facilitating, empowering, and engaging surgeons to realize safer surgical experiences and achieve better patient outcomes. The company provides surgical simulators and planning tools that enable surgeons to learn and deliberately practice surgical procedures without risk to their patients. Founded in 2020, Symgery is headquartered in Montréal, Quebec, and specializes in orthopedic surgery simulation, virtual training simulator, software development for medical simulation, the education, and training of medical learners, spine simulation, trauma simulation, total joint simulation, high fidelity simulation, haptic feedback, orthopaedic residency, spine residency, neurosurgical resident, neurosurgery, hip and knee simulation, and VR simulation.
With Symgery solutions, learners can discover immersive and progressive learning experiences using high-fidelity simulation that mirrors real-life clinical scenarios. To achieve these outcomes, the Symgery team imagines, creates, and crafts learning experiences that go beyond traditional teaching, with a unique blend of technologies, practical techniques, and proven methodologies.
Virtual Medical Coaching: Virtual Medical Coaching is a healthcare simulation company that uses VR simulations to teach medical learners and professionals in a safer and more effective way. The company was formed because leadership understood that learners were struggling to find the tools they needed to be successful in their medical professional journey. Virtual Medical Coaching’s mission became to find a better solution to train medical professionals through the use of innovative technology. This involved a combination of learning experiences with the visualization of complex data to make meaningful changes in learners’ and educators’ lives. Today, Virtual Medical Coaching provides tertiary institutions and hospitals with a complete end-to-end training program.
Wolters Kluwer: Wolters Kluwer is a global provider of professional information, software solutions, and services for clinicians, accountants, lawyers, and tax, finance, audit, risk, compliance, and regulatory sectors. The company seeks to accomplish the mission of delivering deep impact when impact matters most through protecting people’s health and prosperity and contributing to a safe and just society. To accomplish this goal, Wolters Kluwer utilizes trusted clinical technology and evidence-based solutions that drive effective decision-making and outcomes across healthcare. For example, Wolters Kluwer, Laerdal, and NLN teamed up to bring the latest simulation technology to nursing education with vSim, a nursing simulation platform that helps reinforce the lessons of high-fidelity patient simulators. vSim helps nursing learners hone their prioritization and clinical reasoning and decision-making skills before they practice these skills in the sim lab.
