Simulation and Skills Training was proposed to improve the skills of doctors and nurses in Sri lanka. Simulation-based medical education for medical officers enables knowledge, skills and attitudes to be acquired for all healthcare professionals in a safe, educationally orientated and efficient manner. Procedure-based skills, communication, leadership and team working can be learnt, be measured and have the potential to be used as a mode of certification to become an independent practitioner.
The main benefit of this method of training is the ability to provide experiential learning in a safe and controlled environment. Realistic clinical scenarios are designed to highlight particular learning objectives and are followed by the opportunity for post-scenario debriefs, where learning is discussed and consolidated.
Immediately after each scenario, a debriefing session was held, where the trainees can discuss what happened and learn from the experience. Both trainees directly involved in the scenario plus those watching learn through a combination of facilitated reflection, discussion and direct teaching from the faculty.
