Breakout Workshop 4b
Process-oriented simulations: A gift to quality and safety
Led by James Ruiter
Simulation use in healthcare has been, to a large extent, limited to its application in education, and examination and testing. Such a limited view of such a powerful tool is unfortunate and limits our ability to truly improve quality and safety. A recent example of process-oriented in situ simulation to manage the chaos that COVID thrusted us into is highlighted in this session.
After this session, participants should be able to:
Describe the importance of the difference between Work as Imagined and Work as Done.
Assess the limitations of traditional simulations use in healthcare.
Propose improvements to the use of simulation in their context.
