NEJM — The Writing on the Wall

Another great example of using simulation for medical education.  The simulation has broad applications beyond hi-fidelity mannequins or task trainers.  Computer based like NEJM presented and virtual reality  (Second Life) could be also good way for learning. I really like statement from AHRQ:

Simulation is described as a strategy – not a technology – to mirror, anticipate, or amplify real situations with guided experiences in a fully interactive way.

Simulation can complement other organizational change methods to facilitate adoption and implementation of best practices and new technologies.

AHRQ is interested in the use of and/or adaptation of simulation tools in diverse health care settings and the evaluation of its impact on improving patient safety
