Simulation-based training – it’s just like the real thing!
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.
What is simulation-based training?
Simulation-based 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.
Exploring learning experiences of undergraduate nursing students
Simulation-based training sessions are essential in healthcare education. How do nursing students experience the use of a virtual interactive digital simulator compared to a human patient simulation?
Simulation-based training in times of crisis
Simulation can be a useful tool in the development of new standard operating procedures and policies needed to respond to crises like COVID-19.
Improving patient safety
We all agree that communication in the operating room is essential. It saves time and ensures a better quality of patient care. Using the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist supports this. How can we learn to use this checklist?
Operating room layout: impact on work patters and flow disruptions
With use of prerecorded videos of surgeries, researchers examined the impact of the layout of an OR on work patterns and flow disruptions of a circulating nurse.
Learn to cooperate toward shared goals using the principles of CRM
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.
The effect of simulation-based obstetric team training
Dr. Truijens describes the positive effects of simulation-based obstetric team training on communication between health care professionals, clear leadership, and more.
