From the 2023 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference
Presented by Tamera Alpaugh, PhD, MLS(ASCP), and Lorna Ruskin, EdD, MLS(ASCP)
Use of simulation in lab education has accelerated due to workforce shortage and clinical placement challenges. While other disciplines have developed sim standards, they don’t align with sim use in lab education. Developing simulation best practices for laboratory sciences (design, implementation, evaluation) is recommended to provide students with relevant, quality, and transferable experiences.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Summarize the use of simulation in laboratory and other health science education.
- Describe the need for standardized simulation best practices in laboratory education.
- Identify potential best practices to incorporate into laboratory simulation education.
