Healthcare Simulation at a Glanceprovides an accessible overview to key educational aspects of simulation education, and how they relate to simulation in clinical practice and university based education.
Structured into five sections, it begins with an introduction to simulation before moving on to focusing on the learning theories that underpins the approaches, and how to embed simulation into a programme. Sections three and four look at the technical and non-technical features of simulation in various contexts, and how it can be used in assessment and providing feedback to health professionals. The last section considers how simulation educators can develop their own practice through different activities and approaches.
Using case examples and practical tips,Healthcare Simulation at a Glanceoffers structure and a framework applicable to a complex area, and is ideal for those new to using simulation in education, as well as experienced academics.
