10 Best Practices in Simulation

1

Facilitated debriefing

Feedback that includes information on performance provided to the learner by the instructor, a peer, or a computer, either during or after the simulation activity. 

2

Low dose, high frequency training

The opportunity for repetitive training delivered in short, frequent intervals is one of the many benefits of simulation training. 

3

Distributed practice

Training that is spread over a period of time. For this review,interventions were included tht involved more than 1 day of simulation training.

4

Curriculum integration

Incorporation of the simulation intervention as an integral, required component of the curriculum or training program.

5

Clinical variation

Variation in the clinical context, for example multiple different patient scenarios 

6

Range of difficulty

Variation in the difficulty or complexity of the task that was explicitly stated.

7

Individualized learning

Training responsive to individual learner needs (i.e. tailored or adapted depending on performance).

8

Multiple learning strategies

The number of different instructional strategies used to facilitate learning, such as patient case, worked example, discussion, feedback, intentional sequencing, or task variation.

9

Defined outcomes
