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.
5 reasons to attend IMSH 2023, a.k.a. the medsim conference
The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) organizes the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), which is the world’s largest scientific conference.
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?
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.
Simulation-based team training in obstetrics
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.
The role of explicit bias in working with depressed cardiac patients
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.
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.
