Simulation-based educational processes are emerging as key tools for assessing and improving patient safety. Multidisciplinary or interprofessional simulation training can be used to optimize crew resource management and safe communication principles. There is good evidence that simulation training improves self-confidence, knowledge, and individual and team performance on manikins. Emerging evidence supports that procedural simulation, deliberate practice, and debriefing can also improve operational performance in clinical settings and can result in safer patient and population/system outcomes in selected settings. This article highlights emerging evidence that shows how simulation-based interventions and education contribute to safer, more efficient systems of care that save lives.
