The author will describe various types of simulators and simulated experiences, including role playing, standardized patients, partial task trainers, complex task trainers, integrated simulators, and full mission simulation. Vol14No02Man03 Key words: competency, continuing education, human patient simulator, health professions education, interdisciplinary education, simulation Modern simulation was developed to meet the training and risk-management needs of complex and high-risk industries and organizations such as aviation, nuclear power production, and the military.
Next, the use of simulation in undergraduate nursing programs, continuing education programs, interdisciplinary team training, and competency assessment will be presented. Despite their associated hazards, these industries have experienced remarkably low failure rates (Gaba, 2004).
Studies were conducted with a variety of healthcare professionals and reliability scores ranged from a Cronbach’s alpha of 0.72-0.90.
