Team Performance During Simulation
Effective patient care relies heavily on cooperation and collaboration among individuals from across medical teams and, quite often, from different backgrounds in terms of training and experience.
Therefore, clear communication, clear objectives, and streamlined interaction are essential to ensure that all necessary protocols and processes are adhered to for the sake of patient safety.
In a simulation-based training scenario, learners can develop essential non-technical skills (i.e., management of emotions, decision-making aptitude, situational awareness) by performing team-oriented tasks just as they would in a real-life situation. More than just talking through the steps, or reading about a process in a textbook, hands-on training encourages the solidification of key behaviors. And, when enhanced with a post-simulation debriefing, the result is deeper learning.
