Rehearsing Skills Using Simulation

Upskilling practitioners and return to practice staff in healthcare pandemics can be supported in their induction by use of simulation.  Simulation can be used to develop both your confidence and competence  in technical skills such as venepuncture and IV cannulation and non-technical skills such as teamworking and leadership.​

Developing a shared mental model of the learning outcomes will help you to have a common understanding of when it is most effective and efficient to utilise simulation in preparing the workforce.
