The Comprehensive Textbook of Healthcare Simulation is a cohesive, single-source reference on all aspects of simulation in medical education and evaluation. It covers the use of simulation in training in each specialty and is aimed at healthcare educators and administrators who are developing their own simulation centers or programs and professional organizations looking to incorporate the technology into their credentialing process. For those already involved in simulation, the book will serve as a state-of-the-art reference that helps them increase their knowledge base, expand their simulation program’s capabilities, and attract new, additional target learners. Features: • Written and edited by pioneers and experts in healthcare simulation • Personal memoirs from simulation pioneers • Each medical specialty covered • Guidance on teaching in the simulated environment • Up-to-date information on current techniques and technologies • Tips from “insiders” on funding, development, accreditation, and marketing of simulation centers • Floor plans of simulation centers from across the United States • Comprehensive glossary of terminology

This is a practical guide to the use of simulation in pediatric training and evaluation, including all subspecialty areas. It covers scenario building, debriefing and feedback, and it discusses the use of simulation for different purposes: education, crisis resource management and interdisciplinary team training, competency assessment, patient safety and systems integration. Readers are introduced to the different simulation modalities and technologies and guided on the use of simulation with a variety of learners, including medical students, residents, practicing pediatricians, and health-related professionals. Separate chapters on each pediatric subspecialty provide practical advice and strategies to allow readers to integrate simulation into existing curriculum. Pediatric subspecialties covered include: General Pediatrics, Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Trauma, Neonatology, Pediatric Critical Care Medicine, Transport Medicine, Pediatric Anesthesia, and Pediatric Surgery amongst many others. Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation PEDIATRICS Edition is a volume in the series, Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation. The series is designed to complement Levine et al., eds., The Comprehensive Textbook of Healthcare Simulation by providing short, focused volumes on the use of simulation in a single specialty or on a specific simulation topic, and emphasizing practical considerations and guidance.

Medical simulation is achieving respectability among healthcare educators worldwide. Simulation and skills centres have become established to integrate simulation into mainstream education in all medical, nursing, and paramedical fields. Borrowing from the experience and methodologies of industries that are using simulation, medical educators are grappling with the problem of rapidly acquiring the skills and techniques required to implement simulation programmesinto established curricula. This book assists both novice and experienced workers in the field to learn from established practitioners in medical simulation. It includes how to establish a simulation and skills centre, how to find the appropriate simulator, medical props that can enhance the trainingexperience, how to develop courses, teaching skill, problem-based learning, and debriefing techniques are also covered.

Simulation facilities are invaluable for training in medicine and clinical education, biomedical engineering and life sciences. They allow the practice of prevention, containment, treatment, and procedure in a risk-free setting. This book is a practical guide and reference to the latest technology, operations and opportunities presented by clinical simulation. It shows how to develop and make efficient use of resources, and provides hands-on information to those tasked with setting up and delivering simulation facilities for medical, clinical and related purposes, and the development and delivery of simulation-based education programs A step-by-step manual to developing successful simulation programs Shows how to design, construct, outfit and run simulation facilities for clinical education and research. The Residency Review Committee of the US Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education has begun requiring residency programs to have simulation as an integral part of their training programs.

An Official Publication of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, Defining Excellence in Simulation Programs aims to meet the needs of healthcare practitioners using simulation techniques for education, assessment, and research. Increasingly, simulation is an integral part of teaching and training programs in healthcare settings around the world. Simulation models, including virtual simulation, scenario-based simulation with actors, and computerized mannequins, contributes to improved performance and reduced errors in patient care. This text establishes working definitions and benchmarks for the field of simulation and defines the types of simulation programs, while also covering program leadership, funding, staffing, equipment and education models. It provides knowledge critical to the success of simulation program management, simulation educators, and simulation researchers. Written to appeal to the novice to advanced beginner, a special section in each chapter is directed to the competent to expert programs, managers, educators, and researchers, so that this text truly can serve as the comprehensive reference for anyone in simulation.

Critical situations in acute and emergency care are one of the great clinical challenges because of the uncertainty, high stakes, time pressure, and stress that are involved. This book provides a comprehensive outline of all the human factors issues relevant to patient safety during acute care. Following an initial section discussing the basic principles of human behavior and decision making, the various influences on safe patient care are discussed in depth. These are divided into three interacting groups: individual factors, team factors, and organizational factors. Relevant psychological theories are carefully examined, and case studies and descriptions of proven strategies help to ground these theories in daily practice. This newly revised edition, in which each chapter has been enlarged and updated, will help both physicians and non-physicians to better understand the principles of human behavior and decision making in critical situations and thus to provide safer treatment.
