Facilitation Instructions for In Situ Simulations

Needing to create or develop workplace simulations to support hospital guideline or policy training and build clinical skills in a safe and supportive learning environment? These resources are designed to assist in establishing a framework around implementing simulation programs in the healthcare clinical environment.
