clinical simulation

clinical simulation

An educational model of a phenomenon or activity that allows students to rehearse behaviors without placing clients or institutional resources at risk.

Patient care

Simulation replaces or amplifies real patient experiences with guided experiences that mimic experiences that professionals may encounter during their daily work or during extraordinary circumstances. Simulations may be conducted using interactive audio or video, specially designed simulators, or live volunteer faculty members acting out predetermined scenarios. Simulated experiences may be followed by group discussions, debriefings, or more traditional forms of pedagogy.
