Simulation in the pediatric emergency department.

Author information

Children's Hospital Boston, Boston, MA 02115, USA.


Simulation provides a means to educate, monitor, evaluate, and potentially document the competency of emergency physicians. The evolution of high-fidelity simulators has led to a surge of enhanced medical applications that fit nicely into the core of emergency medicine training. Simulation can facilitate training in resuscitation, procedures, CRM, and mass casualty management. Although improved outcomes from simulation are not well established, there is a general consensus regarding the added value over current training. And finally, simulation provides the ability to construct training to match the current educational efforts related to individual physicians or system-level improvements in communication and patient safety.
