Evaluating the effectiveness of 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.
what-is-simulation-training

What is simulation training?

Simulation training provides learners with an opportunity to test out different scenarios to see what works and to understand how they arrived at the right and wrong answers.
