3 New Products to Amplify Your SimulationsIn situ Simulation
The training and education benefits of using simulation in a clinical environment have been proven across healthcare. Learners who participate in simulation training see improvements in retention, skills acquisition, and confidence compared to those who experience only didactic training.
In situ simulation creates even more learning-rich circumstances, giving learners an opportunity to practice complex scenarios in their real clinical environment. One study found that in situ simulation helped to identify latent safety threats (LSTs) in one hospital system. And, in situ simulation helped improve deliberate practice of teamwork, communication skills, and patient safety outcomes.1 With in situ simulation, team behaviors and system processes that might put a patient at risk can be uncovered and corrected before a real patient enters the room.
