Recently on the Society for Technical Communication’s Instructional Design and Learning’s Special Interest Group, Seneca College student Serena Zaccagnini explored how we “Evaluate Clinical Simulations in Medical Education”, where she notes that “the current model of medical training has been in use for at least a hundred years, but a developing movement for patient safety [...]
Evaluating Healthcare Simulation is a new website that was created to provide healthcare simulation educators and researchers with freely available instruments (tools) that were developed for evaluating different aspects of simulation-based education (SBE). This new free resource was downloaded 450 times in just the first few weeks!
The use of metrics, measurement, and tools are essential [...]
