Simulation is a powerful learning tool for health systems institutions from hospitals and clinics to academia. It bridges theory to practice in a safe and interactive learning environment. With computer-controlled simulation technology, healthcare simulation enables students to develop the cognitive and psychomotor skills essential to safe and effective healthcare practice. At the same time, learners gain competence and confidence in their ability to safely perform clinical skills with live patients.
Simulation is highly adaptable to the needs of the learner and offers a range of easily accessible learning opportunities. It offers customized learning experiences that may be 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 outcomes. Simulated environments provide the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them, allowing learners to gain powerful insight about the consequences of their actions. Learners develop a 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 cultivate critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills along with essential teamwork behaviors such as speaking up when appropriate, recognizing errors, and coordinating and prioritizing under stress. These skills lead to optimized clinical outcomes.
Healthcare simulation involves a wide range of activities geared towards learners’ professional development. It supports a common purpose with the healthcare industry – to improve services, safety, effectiveness and efficiency.
