THE EVOLUTION AND MATURITY OF SIMULATION IN HEALTHCARE THROUGH THE YEARS: THE POWER OF THE SIMULATED EXPERIENCE
Keywords:Simulation, Fidelity, Pilots, Strategies, Effectiveness
Simulation is no longer a buzz word that is attached to the aeronautical industry or automotive sector. In the last ten years the use of sophisticated simulation has become a mainstay in the healthcare field. Simulated models ranging from low fidelity models to high fidelity mannequins are being utilized in clinical training. The inclusion recently of machine learning and artificial intelligence is becoming predominant in the field of simulation. With all these great advances in the field of simulation it is important to understand the trajectory of growth in this burgeoning field. It is truly a field of practice where healthcare providers and teachers must respect the past and embrace the future.
