White paper: An introduction to medical simulation

What is Medical Simulation, and why does it play such an important role in training programmes across the healthcare industry?

Did you know?

  • The WHO estimates there are 7 million injuries/complications and 1 million deaths out of the 234 million major surgical procedures performed annually worldwide – around half of which are preventable.
  • Diagnostic errors affect more than 12 million Americans each year4 and may seriously harm 1/3 of these patients5 likely dwarfing all other causes of harm from medical errors combined.
  • The projected cost of medical errors to the U.S. economy is approximately $20 billion a year.

Medical simulation involves the use of advanced technology and equipment to replicate real-life scenarios, allowing medical professionals to gain valuable experience without putting real patients at risk. From anatomical models to state-of-the-art simulators that incorporate robotics and virtual reality, simulation tools have evolved to become an essential part of medical training programs all over the world.

Our free white paper looks at the background to simulation, and explains how using it effectively can improve clincal proficiency and deliver better patient outcomes.

Areas covered include:

  • The history of medical simulation
  • How simulation tools have evolved over time
  • The main benefits of incorporating simulation in medical training programmes
  • Who can benefit from using medical simulation
