Title Comparison of Simulation Strategies to Promote Patient Safety and Reduce Medical Error.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 8p
Personal Author J. Lambton
Abstract The goal of this research is to determine how patient safety and the avoidance of medical error can be effectively taught to student nurses in a simulated setting. A crossover experiment will expose subjects to a) standardized patients, b) high fidelity, and c) virtual simulations, to teach specific patient safety strategies. Each single exposure will result in less than a 75% mastery of the critical elements of the exercise.
