Simulation for Healthcare Improvement - the good, the bad and the ugly

Simulation for Healthcare Improvement - the good, the bad and the ugly

Brief Description:

Have we realised the promise of healthcare simulation in improving quality and safety in healthcare? Is the resource intensive investment in simulation really worth it? What unintended harms might we have caused along the way?
This session is for educators who are thoughtful about the role of simulation in healthcare. We’ll consider the importance of strategy and execution for high-quality simulation targeting the right objectives.
