Simulation and education
"What's so beautiful about simulation when it comes to the safety front and the quality front is that simulation, if done right, could really tackle areas of deficiencies and nightmare (situations)," says Dr. Amitai Ziv, founder of MSR, Israel's Center for Medical Simulation. Simulation teaches people what to do in tough scenarios before encountering them in the real world, where the consequences can be more severe.
