Applicability

Brief Summary:

This template is a generic and comprehensive guide for the development and documentation of simulation scenarios. It is intended to be applicable to any profession (including interprofessional scenarios), any healthcare field, and for most simulation modalities. Members of the SIM-one community produced it following a review of the literature on best practices in scenario design and a review of numerous other templates.
