Simulations-Based Care Delivery

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Simulation is an active learning pedagogy that has proliferated in use across academic and practice settings to improve the confidence and competence of individual care providers and to strengthen team performance in clinical situations. Despite numerous safety initiatives, preventable medical error remains the third leading cause of death, a statistic that may not be completely accurate because many errors are not reported. Simulation training has demonstrated positive outcomes, supporting the need for continued exploration of innovative strategies to reduce preventable error throughout care delivery organizations. This chapter describes the evolution of simulation-based activities in patient care delivery settings and provides examples of the significant role of nursing in improving patient safety and the quality of care delivered by individuals, teams, and organizations.
