M11: Safer workplaces using simulation based interventions

Wednesday 27 March

The session will provide delegates with an understanding of the role of simulation methodology in improving patient care through identifying latent errors in the workplace and interventions to tackle them thereby improving patient safety. Real life examples and interactive exercises will teach delegates how to make their teams stronger and safer. This is an exciting workshop as it will introduce delegates to the simulation way of quality improvement to enhance patient care.

After this session, participants will be able to:

1. Understand the role and impact of workplace simulation
2. Explain the concept and application of latent errors in improving patient safety
3. Review and apply the links between simulation methodology and quality improvement
