The Simulation Program
The Simulation Program at Children’s Health℠ is committed to communication, collaboration and improving outcomes in a crisis situation – which is the time when all these qualities mean the most. Our goal is to help health care providers develop the skills and teamwork behaviors they need for any situation, and we know that these skills are best learned under realistic conditions.
Making life better for children through the use of healthcare simulation and educational technologies to improve quality and patient safety outcomes by promoting a culture of learning for our team members and community partners.
Perform as a center of excellence for pediatric simulation by offering innovative, high-quality, multimodal simulation strategies and education to provide an immersive interprofessional learning experience based on our core values of Selfless Service, Passionate Advocacy, Commitment to Excellence, and Unwavering Integrity.
An integral part of the Children’s Health℠ Learning and Leadership Institute, the program supports the entire Children’s Health System of Texas (CHST) in providing healthcare simulation and educational technologies to our interprofessional and multidisciplinary learners. The Simulation Program, or “Sim Lab,” began in 2006 with a single infant simulator, and it has grown into a state-of-the-art facility that now occupies more than 3,000 square feet featuring three simulation rooms and a wide range of simulators from neonate to adult and task trainers that can be used within the center or in the clinical or pre-hospital setting. This provides learners the opportunity to practice high-risk low frequency scenarios in a psychologically safe environment where they are free to learn from their challenges.
