IMSH 2014 Comes to A Close
After five days of medical simulation connections community, industry and course content came to a close yesterday with a closing plenary by Jen Arnold MD, MSc “To Err is Human, To Simulate Divine”. Jen reminded us that medical error is the 5th leading cause of death in United States and that we can influence this poor statistic through healthcare simulation, because the methodology and technology can be used to uncover latent threats to patient safety.
