First Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation Dictionary Available Now

AHRQ has partnered with the Society for Simulation in Healthcare to produce this first comprehensive Healthcare Simulation Dictionary. With more than 100 health care simulation terms and definitions, the Healthcare Simulation Dictionary takes the first steps toward standardizing the use of simulation terminology to enhance information sharing. Health care simulation professionals can use the dictionary in different areas, such as education, assessment, research and systems integrations. The dictionary will support clear communication and improve awareness about lexicon use. This first edition of the dictionary was conceived as a living document to be expanded over time and is part of AHRQ’s mission to improve patient safety, which involves simulation research.
