Underuse of Simulators
Research has shown that most simulators (80%) have spare capacity for more training.
Maintenance of Competence
Training and availability of faculty trained in simulation is a key constraint. Also, with a certain turnover in most organisations it is a challenge to continously maintain the necessary competence in simulation within an organisation.
A Lack of Standards
As simulation is still fairly new in healthcare education, few or no standards are deployed for measuring performance and learning outcomes. Also, as organisations continue to invest in simulation programs, there is a growing need to demonstrate the value of simulation to key stakeholders.
