In this special edition of Simulcast, we feature three articles on simulation applied to point of care ultrasound (POCUS). Vic visited the team at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital Ultrasound Division (@jeff_sono) in Philadelphia, led by Dr Resa E. Lewiss (@ultrasoundREL)
Resa chose 3 articles for us to review, each focused on different aspects of using simulation for POCUS education. These have obvious relevance for those who use ultrasound at the bedside, but anyone using simulation for clinical skills training will find our discussion interesting.
