Immersive Simulation

What Is Immersive Sim?

An immersive simulation is a session influenced by participants’ characteristics, experiences, level of training, and preparation for the case or task. The perceived physical, conceptual and emotional fidelity; the perceived level of challenge; and the simulators and actors can, and do, affect the simulation experience. A learner who experiences a simulated event with the goal of gaining an understanding of a system or human action. Following the simulation, an expert leads a debrief in which the learners discuss what happened; what they did well; and identify opportunities for systemic, team, and/or personal improvements. These changes improve patient outcomes and health system efficiency.
