You can’t put a value on that… Or can you? Economic evaluation in simulation-based medical education

Simulation-based medical education (SBME) is often resource-intensive, yet rigorous evaluation of the costs and benefits of simulation programmes or activities is rare. Lin et al.1 raise the important issue of economic evaluation of SBME and offer guidance on its implementation by exploring challenges and opportunities. We offer support for discipline in the economic evaluation [...]

Simulate to boost real empathy

Healthcare professionals involved in patient-related adverse events or medical errors may experience emotional distress. This emotional state, sometimes controversially termed “second victim”, has varying levels of intensity, symptoms, and duration depending on different factors. In most cases, professionals tend to seek emotional help from colleagues, often referred to as peer-responders. Although this is [...]
