Objectives  This article reviews and critically evaluates historical and contemporary research on simulation‐based medical education (SBME). It also presents and discusses 12 features and best practices of SBME that teachers should know in order to use medical simulation technology to maximum educational benefit. 
Implementing economic evaluation in simulation‐based medical education: challenges and opportunities
TLDR
Economic evaluation of simulation‐based programmes or curricula is required to demonstrate whether improvement in trainee performance and health outcomes justifies the cost of investment.
A critical review of simulation‐based mastery learning with translational outcomes
TLDR
This article critically review simulation‐based mastery learning research in medical education, evaluate its implementation and immediate results, and document measured downstream translational outcomes in terms of improved patient care practices, better patient outcomes and collateral effects.
Students as patients: A systematic review of peer simulation in health care professional education
Evidence supports the substitution of both clinical placement time and traditional educational activities with simulation‐based education (SBE). However, lack of resources can be a barrier to SBE
Using simulation in clinical education.
Patient simulation in all its forms is widely used in clinical education with the key aims of improving learners' competence and confidence, improving patient safety and reducing errors.
Five Questions Critical Care Educators Should Ask About Simulation-Based Medical Education
Collaborative learning with screen-based simulation in health care education: an empirical study of collaborative patterns and proficiency development
TLDR
Coll collaborative learning with educational computer-assisted simulation (ECAS) in health care education and research on training with a radiological virtual reality simulato is presented.
Medical Simulation in Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine
TLDR
A perspective on simulation specific to respiratory and critical care medicine is provided, including an overview of historical and modern simulation modalities and the current evidence supporting their use.
Exploring simulation in the internal medicine clerkship
TLDR
Investigators sought to determine the effectiveness of simulation in improving student confidence in acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) curriculum and examined student perceptions of the role of simulation.
A Contemporary History of Healthcare Simulation Research
TLDR
The focus in this chapter is on documenting contemporary history with a strong education focus and the importance of professional societies and associations in the dissemination of healthcare simulation research.
A study of innovative patient safety education
TLDR
A pilot project using high‐fidelity simulation to integrate the World Health Organisation patient safety curriculum into undergraduate medical education is reported.

Effect of practice on standardised learning outcomes in simulation‐based medical education
TLDR
This report synthesises a subset of 31 journal articles on high‐fidelity simulation‐based medical education containing 32 research studies drawn from a larger qualitative review published previously to hypothesise an association between hours of practice in simulation‐ based medical education and standardised learning outcomes measured as weighted effect sizes.

TLDR
The article proceeds to report six lessons learned from a research legacy in simulation-based medical education (SBME), and listing and amplifying 10 DP research opportunities in academic EM.
What is feedback in clinical education?
TLDR
The aim of this study is to propose a consensual, research‐based, operational definition of feedback in clinical education, needed for educational practice and teacher training, and for research into the effectiveness of different types of feedback.
The use of clinical simulations in assessment
TLDR
Simulation‐based testing methods have been developed to meet the need for assessment procedures that are both authentic and well‐structured, but authenticity alone never is a sufficient factor for validity.
Development and Evaluation of a Simulation-Based Pediatric Emergency Medicine Curriculum
TLDR
A one-day, simulation-based pediatric EM curriculum produced limited results, and focused, frequent, and effortful instructional interventions are necessary to achieve substantial performance improvements.
Does ultrasound training boost Year 1 medical student competence and confidence when learning abdominal examination?
TLDR
This study evaluates the added value of ultrasound training when Year 1 medical students learn abdominal examination and finds engaging, effective tools to help students acquire competence and confidence in abdominal examination techniques.
The scope of simulation-based healthcare education.

    Simulation in healthcare : journal of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare
  • 2006
TLDR
This work aims to move beyond reporting on the potential role of simulation or how it compares to other more traditional (yet often unproven) methods of training, and focus instead on the most effective use of simulation for healthcare education.
Simulation technology for health care professional skills training and assessment.
TLDR
Some benefits of simulation technology include improvements in certain surgical technical skills, in cardiovascular examination skills, and in acquisition and retention of knowledge compared with traditional lectures.
Simulation-Based Training of Internal Medicine Residents in Advanced Cardiac Life Support Protocols: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
A randomized trial with wait-list controls using a medical simulator to assess baseline proficiency in ACLS and determine the impact of an intervention on skill development, which improved significantly after simulator training.
Features and uses of high-fidelity medical simulations that lead to effective learning: a BEME systematic review
TLDR
While research in this field needs improvement in terms of rigor and quality, high-fidelity medical simulations are educationally effective and simulation-based education complements medical education in patient care settings.
