Development of a Perioperative Simulation Program

May 5, 2016
Thursday, 9am (PT); 10am (MT); 11am (CT); 12pm (ET)

The perioperative environment encompasses a diverse group of professionals who must work together as a team to provide care to the surgical patient. This perioperative team can provide reliable safe care to the surgical patient, or unorganized chaotic care resulting in a devastating event. A structured scenario utilizing high-fidelity simulation can be developed to observe the perioperative team members’ interactions, competency and communication skills during a surgical crisis. This webinar will provide the tools required to create a perioperative simulation scenario in your institution.


  • Describe how Kolb’s experiential learning theory applies to simulation learning
