Abstract

Simulation-based training is a novel approach that facilitates the use of higher order thinking skills. Simulation-based training challenges medical professionals to develop cognitive, technical, and behavioral skills through the use of mannequins, working medical equipment, and human colleagues. During scenarios, trainees must make use of their knowledge base, analyze and synthesize factors contributing to the crises, and evaluate the effects of their actions. Feedback indicates that simulation-based training programs are more pertinent to and better accepted by adult learners than traditional programs. The instructional methodologies used in simulation-based training programs are more in line with the tenets of adult learning.
