Simulation Makes a Difference

Simulation

  1. Reduces preventable medical errors
  2. Improves patient outcomes
  3. Increases healthcare team performance
  4. Prepares teams for high consequence care
  5. Identifies latent patient care threats

To ERR is Human

This report published in 1999 by the Institute of Medicine (IOM is widely considered the origin of modern patient safety movement. (1) Simulation is a proven method to reduce medical error, increase team performance, and improve patient outcomes and survivability. (2)
