The book presents a clear, pedagogical model for use in all simulation centres and laboratories. It addresses theoretical and practical dimensions, including the business case for change, educational strategies, program blueprints, and curriculum and assessment tools in print and digital formats. Woven throughout are exemplary clinical simulations for SimMan and standardized patients. The book is an affirmation that financial and intellectual capital can by designed, through simulation, to systematically improve patient safety in a large health care system, while being cost-effective. It will be of value to health care leaders in nursing, medicine, and related professionals in practice, education, and business.
Key Features: Describes in detail a ground-breaking system of achieving patient safety through use of simulation in an interprofessional clinical learning environmentFulfils core competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice for the Health Resources and Services AdministrationPresents simulations scalable to any size organizationIncludes theoretical foundations and practical applications for teaching and learning
