Medical Errors And Safety Systems

The use of simulation-based methods for clinical and team training provides an opportunity for health care professionals to develop and maintain the skills required to effectively manage patient care. This is especially true for those rare events when emergency interventions require urgent, accurate, and cohesive team functioning. We present a framework for considering simulation-based training, examine contextual factors and the outcomes of research conducted to date in this area, and provide suggestions for selecting simulation-based approaches for developing obstetrics and gynecology teams in multiple contexts.
