Simulation-based training has been applied and studied across the continuum of professional development in medicine to address a variety of skills and broad range of competencies including medical knowledge, patient care, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, practice-based learning and improvement, system-based practice, psychomotor skills, leadership, team training, critical thinking and decision making.
While most programs use simulation for educational purposes, 71% also use it for assessment and 40% for quality improvement.
During this session, scenario-based simulation as well as procedural categories will be addressed in the context of improvements in patient care and safety. Dr. Sachdeva will lead us in a discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of various simulation delivery options and review main challenges and limitations specific to the use of simulation in CME/CPD. We will focus on the novel and developing applications in both training and assessment.
