INACSL Announces Revised Standards of Best Practice: Simulation
"As the science of healthcare simulation evolves, so does the need to update current simulation practice. INACSL continues to press forward through innovation with the expanded and revised 2016 edition of the INACSL Standards. Keeping the INACSL Standards is one example of INACSL meeting its mission of advancing the science of simulation,"
The INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation provide educators, clinicians and researchers with best practices to design, conduct and evaluate simulation-based experiences. The first seven INACSL Standards were published in 2011 and revised in 2013.
Focus on the INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation is also reflected in the organization's vision as global leader in transforming practice to improve patient safety through excellence in healthcare simulation. The 2016 INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation have been updated based on current practice and incorporate external feedback from 20 professional healthcare organizations. They are published in a new format, which better indicates the relationship between the standards and describes their non-hierarchical nature. The revised INACSL Standards of Best Practice: Simulation include: Simulation Design, Debriefing, Facilitation, Outcomes and Objectives, Participant Evaluation, Professional Integrity and Simulation-Enhanced Interprofessional Education (IPE).
