Training highly skilled health-care talent through simulations
Share this story

Simulation training is critical to helping students practice making life-changing clinical decisions and observing the outcomes of their actions on patients. The University of Toronto’s Dr. Erica Cambly is addressing this need by providing nursing and health sciences students with hands-on clinical decision-making experience using game theory to develop virtual patient scenarios.

As part of a Canada-wide simulation project in partnership with Simulation Canada and CICan, the research program aims to provide students, including those in remote communities, with the transferrable skills, such as critical thinking, communication and problem solving, needed to make strategic time-sensitive decisions in a clinical setting.
