In situ simulation is increasingly popular for all the right reasons – highly realistic training with opportunities for team and systems testing. We’ve recognized there are risks, especially disruption of service and physical safety. But what about those patient and families ‘exposed’ to ISS? What do they think about it? What are their risks? And what should we do about it? Are there opportunities we haven’t yet realized?
I spoke with Stephanie Barwick (@InSituSteph) and Damian Roland (@Damian_Roland) about this topic – how they got interested, what kind of research are they doing, and what recommendations do they have for our practice.
