Simulation-based education and training (SBET) continues to play an important role in contributing to the education and training of the healthcare workforce.
This strategy will set the direction for a collaborative and co-ordinated approach to high quality, interprofessional and accessible SBET across the healthcare workforce in Wales for the coming five years.
The importance of patients, service users and learners are at the heart of the strategy, with a strong emphasis on collaborative learning and improving patient and service user safety, experiences and outcomes that is cost-effective.
The strategy was developed and reviewed in consultation with the healthcare SBET community, lay representatives and other key stakeholders to ensure its relevance for the education and training of the healthcare workforce of Wales.
An abstract about the development of the strategy is available in the International Journal of Healthcare Simulation.
