As a learning resource, simulation tools provide [...]
Advanced medical simulation is now a widely used method in all training phases of health professionals as regards the learning of technical and procedural skills and for the acquisition of non-technical skills likeorganization, communication and in general to improve teamwork and leadership skills.1,2,3 How can we be sure that the individual skills acquired [...]
