Simulation in healthcare
Teamwork is important in many occupations but it is crucial when working under pressure. Most of us can only imagine how stressful it could be when working as a fire fighter or operating room nurse.
Training teamwork skills and team performance
The study of Annemarie Fransen and her team shows that simulation-based team training is effective in improving communication and cooperation of obstetric care teams.
Measuring facial expressions during doctor-patient interaction
Using simulated medical encounters, Dr. Crapanzano and her team measured the influence of bias in the medical students' diagnosis and treatment plans for a patient presenting as mildly depressed.
Simulation-based team training
Teamwork plays an important role in ensuring patient safety and avoiding errors. The most commonly used method to promote teamwork, is training entire teams together to better prepare them for effective cooperation.
Interruptions in your work have a negative effect on completing your tasks correctly. Jones and her team examined the impact of clinical interruptions on simulated trainee performances during central venous catheterization.
Two ways to learn more about medical simulation and debriefing

Recording a simulated team training
Dr. Truijens describes the positive effects of simulation-based obstetric team training on communication between health care professionals, clear leadership, and more.
Simulation in an operating room
By conducting training sessions, students in a simulation lab develop and maintain knowledge, skills, and competencies such as interviewing skills, working with certain equipment, and teamwork procedures.
