Using simulation to improve quality and patient safety

 

Category: Quality of Care and Patient Safety

 
Learning objectives

  • To apply simulation training to individuals, teams, work units, and organizations.
  • To apply simulation as the tool for creating safe culture and fostering changes in work procedures and systems.

 
Summary of the session
Simulation has been used mainly for teaching knowledge and skills in medical education. Now there is a trend to incorporate soft skills of safety and quality into the simulation training.
 
This session will describe Taiwan’s successful experiences for applying the simulation as a comprehensive strategy to support quality improvement which cover:
 
1. Educating patient safety practices to medical students,
2. Improving team performance with teamwork-based simulation,
3. Fostering changes through national patient safety simulation contest
 
Joint Commission of Taiwan (JCT) has conducting the national simulation contest since 2013. The elements of contest include the safety behaviours, human factor, teamwork communication and etc. Moreover, JCT integrates the simulation contest topics from hospital incident reporting system then converts to teaching contents for simulation training. The contest have successfully demonstrated how to use the simulation in medical professional trainings and improved skills for clinical, communication, and teamwork.
