Intravenous fluid (IV) and medication administration is often a necessary component of patient care even though there are potential hazards associated with this type of therapy. Healthcare Simulation scenarios involving IV fluids or medications should attempt to mimic real life situations as much as possible. When learners have to frequently “pretend” to perform tasks they [...]
The June 2019 – Volume 14 – Issue 3 edition of the Simulation in Healthcare Journal became available yesterday, and here today we summarize the index which is linked below to highlight the latest research in medical simulation.

Healthcare Simulation Coordinators oversee the daily operation of simulation laboratories/centers. Previously we have shared job descriptions for Entry Level Sim Techs, and Experienced Senior Level Sim Techs, and today Dr. Kim Baily covers the responsibilities of all things Coordinator! Today’s article was guest authored by Kim Baily PhD, MSN, RN, CNE, previous Simulation Coordinator for [...]
Laerdal’s latest eBook explores how healthcare has changed and how clinical simulation can mitigate the impacts of this evolution. There are very few people who enjoy constant change. With change comes disruption, new learning curves, and even potential patient risk. Medical Simulation is often considered an optimal means for mitigating the impact of change. Using [...]
