Simulation is a powerful learning tool for Health Systems Institutions varying from hospitals to academia to bridge theory to practice in a safe and interactive learning environment. With computer-controlled simulation technology, healthcare simulation enables students and providers to develop the cognitive and psychomotor skills, which are essential to safe and effective healthcare practice. At the same time, the learners gain competence and confidence in their ability to safely perform clinical skills with actual patients.
Simulation is highly adaptable to the needs of the learner and offers a range of easily accessible learning opportunities. It fosters customized learning experiences that are difficult to obtain in real life. A simulation environment allows the learners to practice and repeat procedures as often as necessary in order to correct mistakes and fine-tune their skills until they achieve favorable clinical outcome. Evidently, simulated environment provides the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them promoting learners gain powerful insight about the consequences of their actions and the strong need to “get it right.” Furthermore, simulation training along with hands-on skills enhances the learners’ thinking, decision making, and effective communication skills. More significantly, simulation activities help the learners to practice critical teamwork behaviors such as feeling comfortable to speak up, multitasking, recognizing errors, and coordinating under stress, which will lead to optimized clinical outcome.
Ultimately, healthcare simulation represents range of activities geared towards learners’ professional development. Additionally, simulation pursues a common purpose within the healthcare – to improve health care services’ safety, effectiveness, and efficiency.
