Why is Simulation in Healthcare Education Important?
In the healthcare education industry, simulation is used to improve patient safety outcomes by integrating traditional education with practice-based training. Providing learners with a good foundation and hands-on experience is the key to future success in their careers.
Simulation in healthcare education has risen significantly over the past two decades due to the continuous advancement of technology. Traditional education will always provide learners with a solid foundation, however research demonstrates that simulations take that a step further through hands-on experience. Simulation provides valuable feedback, decision-making, and hands-on training with room to make mistakes.
Not only are skill-based simulations important, but learning how to effectively communicate, operate as a team, and build clinical decision-making abilities is where simulation can bridge the gap between traditional and experiential learning.
When implemented properly, including simulation in your curriculum is effective in guiding learners toward a safer, more effective, and realistic education before moving on to real-life patient care. Focusing on finding the best possible outcomes for patients while meeting learning objectives provides valuable learning opportunities that can be implemented in the real-world.
