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 […]
