So you have your scenario and you have planned out your session, but how do you ensure that your simulation session is effective? In this workshop, we will review the concept of fidelity, or how a scenario can be made realistic. We will address the roles that equipment, environment, and psychology play in fidelity.

During this session, participants will:

  • Learn how to optimize fidelity;
  • Discuss the pros and cons of the use of confederates;
  • Review various approaches to the instructor role;
  • Discuss common challenges and practice dealing with unexpected developments.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the concept of fidelity and its different components;
  • Create an effective learning experience by enhancing fidelity;
  • Anticipate common pitfalls in conducting simulation sessions;
  • Set personal goals for applying the skills learned in this workshop to one's own practice setting, and review a tool designed to assess performance of new teaching skills.
