New Free Simulation Scenario Exchange Database from SIM-one
Proven Scenario Resources, Peer-Reviewed & Free!
Introducing the SIM Scenario Exchange—an online repository of simulation scenarios, tools and templates. Open to all healthcare professions, disciplines and sectors, the Exchange fosters the improvement of simulation practices, facilitates knowledge transfer and helps simulationists save time. The Exchange was developed with funds from Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) and Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) in response to the community’s demand. SIM-one would like to thank Ontario simulationists who contributed to the development of the Exchange.
“The Exchange is a free and open resource made possible by the support of the healthcare simulation community,” said Dr. Tim Willett, SIM-one’s Director of R&D, who led the development of the Exchange. “The Exchange features an intuitive design that allows users to easily find scenarios and tools based on specific needs.”
At the click of the screen, users can search for simulation scenarios, scenario development tools and templates, and learner/scenario assessment tools for evaluation and research. In addition, users can contribute, modify and adapt resources on the Exchange.
The SIM Scenario Exchange™ is trans-professional (supporting scenarios and resources in all health professions) and trans-disciplinary. It supports excellence in simulation-based education by providing evidence-based, practice-informed and tested simulation scenarios – many of which are peer-reviewed.
