Building a Culture of Patient Safety Through Simulation: An Interprofessional Learning Model.

Gallo K; Smith LG.

Simulation training has been explored as a strategy to enhance decision making, teamwork, and communication skills in health care. This book reviews one health system's experience developing a simulation center that engaged nurses, doctors, and related health professionals in interprofessional education to improve patient safety and includes case studies to illustrate the value of the approach. A past AHRQ WebM&M interview with Dr. David Gaba discussed simulation as an educational approach.
