Abstract:   (1587 Views)
Introduction: Simulation is an educational technology that facilitates learning and improves learner’s performance. The aim of this study was to introduce simulation-based clinical training in operating room.
Methods: In this review article, the keywords “simulation, training, clinical education, operating room training, and simulation in operating room” were used to find Persian and English articles published from 2000-2018 andin the databases of Science Direct, Google scholar, PubMed, SID, and Magiran. Articles related to introduction and application of simulation-based training in operating room were selected and reviewed.
Results: Forty-Two articles had addressed the history and importance of using simulation in clinical education, their development methods, types of simulators used in the operating room and importance and types of models designed to evaluate the simulation methods. Examples of these simulations included low-fidelity physical simulators, web-based educational tools, computer-based video training, virtual learning environment systems, learning management systems, laparoscopic surgery such as “McGill Inanimate System” for training and evaluation of laparoscopic skills, simulation-based surgical methods, and realistic computer-controlled mannequins such as “Sim Man 3G”.
Conclusion: A wide variety of simulators and models can be used for designing, implementation and evaluation of operating room training. Many of the existing challenges can be overcome with proper planning and educational institutions can develop and expand simulation-based trainings in operating room by understanding the educational potential of this method
Keywords: Simulation training, patient simulation, operating room, educational technology, clinical education.
