Considerations for Continuing Simulation Training During Infectious Outbreaks
MetadataShow full item record
STATEMENT: Healthcare simulation training can be significantly disrupted by infectious disease outbreaks, yet it is a key component in several important medical education activities, such as resuscitation refresher training and high-stakes prelicensure healthcare examinations. This article details the strategic and tactical considerations for continuing simulation training during infectious disease outbreaks. A framework of graded responses, titrated to outbreak severity, is provided from the perspective of an academic medical center managing simulation training during the early stage of the now global coronavirus disease 2019 outbreak.
