Journal Club Summary October 2016 – An Act of Betrayal

Simulcast Journal Club is a monthly series heavily inspired by the ALiEM MEdIC Series.  Each month we publish a case and link a paper with associated questions for discussion.  We moderate and summarise the discussion at the end of the month, including exploring the opinions of experts from the field.


For October we discussed the article :

Deception and Simulation Education : Issues, Concepts, and Commentary

Calhoun, Aaron W.; Pian-Smith, May C. M.; Truog, Robert D.; More,

Simulation in Healthcare : The Journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. 10(3):163-169, June 2015.
There were some fascinating responses from our bloggers this month, and I’m delighted to introduce Associate Professor Dan Raemer as our expert commenter in our summary article.
