The training and feedback method in which learners practice tasks and processes in lifelike circumstances using models or virtual reality is called Simulation. Feedbacks from observers, peers, actor-patients, and video cameras assist in improving skills.
Medical simulators help to review and practice procedures as frequently as required to reach proficiency, without causing any harm to the patients. Computer-based medical simulation provides a realistic and economical set of tools to improve and maintain the skills of health care providers. This also adds a valuable dimension to medical training.
There are several tools and approaches used by Simulation-based Medical Education (SBME):
The cross-disciplinary effort of Medical simulation brings together providers, including nurses, physicians, and allied health professionals from a variety of disciplines with computer scientists, researchers, educators, and human factors engineers.
