Oxford Medical Simulation


2021 OMS SIM SURVEY

Healthcare simulation is used across all areas of health professional education. During the COVID-19 pandemic, simulation played a vital role in training new staff, reinforcing new processes, and providing opportunities to practice new techniques. To shine a light on the dynamic simulation landscape, Oxford Medical Simulation (OMS) conducted a simulation community survey. This survey sought to discover the degree to which new methods were implemented and what educators learned in the process. Survey respondents indicated significant changes in their approach to simulation, and this report aims to share these learnings with the global simulation community as the healthcare education landscape continues to evolve.
