In the past, the goals of outcomes of healthcare simulation focused simply on clinical skills or knowledge acquisition. More recently, some of the focus has shifted to teamwork behaviors and communication. Importantly, outcome measurements are available for all of the above domains. However, Clinical Simulation that involves a consideration for institutional culture, relationships between individuals [...]
Today we take a side step from clinical simulation to consider some of the latest updates from the world of Patient Safety. With the same goal to improve outcomes, the patient safety sector has been driving serious global results through powerful organizations like the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, key research updates, and expert considerations from [...]
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. These works would make great “stocking stuffers” for your fellow simulation colleagues!
Healthcare Simulation Research: A [...]
Medical Simulation experiences during initial Emergency Medical Services (EMS) education has been shown to be beneficial in more ways than one. Interestingly, recent research conducted by Gurnakova and Gropel in Austria, suggests that experienced EMS practitioners may also benefit from healthcare simulation training (Gurnakova, J. Gropel, P. Prior Participation in Simulation Events is Associated With [...]
