Medical simulation training most often means any clinical simulation used to train medical physicians. To best comprehend how these medical simulations work, one must understand the physician’s scope of practice and specific roles and responsibilities inherent across medicine. Specifically, medical simulation focuses on training objectives such as learning how to diagnose, treat, perform surgery, and [...]
Defining interprofessional education (IPE) and distinguishing the term from multidisciplinary education is challenging since so many different definitions for both terms are found in the literature. However, the distinction is important when it comes to healthcare simulation — maybe so much so that we might even need a new term! Here guest author Dr. Kim Baily [...]
Just ahead of IMSH 2020 in San Diego, Oxford Medical Simulation (OMS) is excited to announce the launch of multiplayer virtual reality training with the launch of OMS Interprofessional, a multiplayer VR simulation platform. OMS Interprofessional allows multiple learners to be in the same virtual reality scenario at one time, whether they are in the same room [...]
HealthySimulation.com’s library of “must read” medical simulation books is growing again Sim Champs! Today we share the latest additions to our Healthcare Simulation Books page, with new works covering Research, Interprofessional Education (IPE), Serious Gaming, Patient Safety and Simulation Operations.
