Presentation Abstract

Too often we as healthcare simulation specialists or simulation technicians find ourselves in a position where we feel like there is nowhere to turn. This is all too common in clinical simulation. We deal with last minute changes, unintended turns during scenarios, staff and financial shortages and a host of other concerns. During this session, we are going to visit a few possible solutions to some of the common, yet trying dilemmas we deal with on a regular basis. We will talk about how human error causes problems and how we can look out for them before they have an impact on results. Our work environment, individual capabilities, demands and human nature all have an impact on the outcome of simulation. We have the power to make a change.
