The State of Healthcare Simulation: Great Expectations and Great Challenges (1.5 Class A CE)

Saturday, September 22
7:30 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: Auditorium, Hynes

Simulation methods have been demonstrated to improve outcomes across a myriad of industries. Healthcare simulation is now accepted or required for almost every area of practice across the world. Relative to other industries, healthcare simulation efforts are still young in the area of transitional science but show great promise toward increasing the effectiveness of education, supplementing clinical experiences, improving practitioner skill, impacting patient outcomes, and reducing healthcare costs. Learn the challenges of faculty development in simulation, Inter-professional education (IPE) using simulation and obtain an overview of the spectrum of simulation use.
