Healthcare simulation is an extremely useful education and training resource, and investment in this learning method can result in improved patient safety outcomes. Clinical simulation educators are often tasked with ensuring that these outcomes are met through high-fidelity simulation experiences, but can be left wondering how best to maximize their return on investment. However, there [...]
The field of healthcare simulation has seen an acceleration of implementation during the past decade, with an additional push in usage given the need for virtual simulation during the coronavirus pandemic. The simulation community has been able to help millions of patients, increasing patient safety through effective simulation training and education made possible by numerous [...]
The coronavirus pandemic created a number of challenges for the field of simulation since the virus’s onset in March 2020. Simulation centers, institutions and vendors across the world were forced to reevaluate their protocols and procedures, and many were forced to temporarily close their doors until such standards were finalized and approved.
