Since 2005, CPSI has recognized the potential of simulation to improve healthcare practices. We’re committed to leading the development and adoption of programs and to working with our partners to provide health professionals with simulation-based training in a multidisciplinary environment.
On behalf of the simulation community, in 2007 CPSI secured funding from Health Canada for a project entitled Patient Simulation: An Educational Tool for Safety. The purpose is to provide a Canadian structure for coordinating simulation efforts, and to promote simulation as an important way to educate interdisciplinary health teams.
Based on consultations with simulation and education stakeholders from across Canada, CPSI will support the Canadian Network for Simulation in Healthcare for two years.
