Description:
Greenspan1 in a recent BMJ report stated that simulation training can help in the establishment of consistent standards by defining how things should be done. She was writing in relation to its role in improving patientsâ outcomes as outlined in the recommendations of the Francis report2. Simulation clarifies the specific role of all the care workers at resuscitations and other procedures. All experts in the field of simulation training emphasise that it allows everybody in the team to have an input and outdated hierarchy is set to one side. It is part of the transition from classroom tuition to safe clinical performance. Simulation has gained a wider acceptance in mainstream medicine. It has overcome the initial reservations that it would add little to the traditional approach of history taking, clinical examination and management. Atul Gwande3 points out that medicine has long faced a conflict between the imperative to give patients the best possible care and the needs to provide novices with experience. Simulation helps to fill this gap.
