Medical Team Training: Using Simulation as a Teaching Strategy for Group Work
Moyer, Michael R.; Brown, Rhonda Douglas
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v36 n4 p330-351 2011
Described is an innovative approach currently being used to inspire group work, specifically a medical team training model, referred to as The Simulation Model, which includes as its major components: (1) Prior Training in Group Work of Medical Team Members; (2) Simulation in Teams or Groups; (3) Multidisciplinary Teamwork; (4) Team Leader Selection; and (5) a Facilitated Group Debriefing Process. This approach involves multidisciplinary medical teams and their leaders responding to changes in critical, stress-filled environments by organizing their approach to patient care through simulated practice sessions, using human patient simulators which mimic actual patients in the health care environment.
