Promoting simulation security in clinical, academic, and system-based programs

Amy Daniels, Ph.D, RN, CHSE

Session Overview:
Policies, procedures, and guidelines addressing confidentiality, physical and psychological safety, and security strengthen the quality of simulation-based educational programs. The presentation will discuss the importance and impact of confidentiality, safety, and security within simulation-based education. Applying standards from both the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) and the International Nursing Association of Clinical Simulation Learning (INACSL) provides an evidence base and structure for developing and implementing related policies, procedures, and guidelines for simulation centers in both academic and clinical settings.

Learning Objectives:  By the end of this information session, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe confidentiality, safety, and security within simulation-based education environments.
  2. Discuss simulation center operations impact on confidentiality, safety, and security without policies, procedures, or guidelines to guide day-to-day activities.
  3. ​Construct strategies to implement and uphold confidentiality, safety, and security policies, procedures and guidelines into simulation programs.
