Healthcare Simulation


Our faculty apply cutting-edge simulation technologies to investigate safety and quality issues facing the healthcare sector as well as best practices for training and educating future generations of physicians and clinicians. We have been funded by the Department of Defense, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), as well as multiple national foundations to improve patient care using simulation.

Current Research and Projects

Improving patient and clinician safety during COVID-19 through a rapidly adaptive simulation intervention

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)

Investigators: Leigh Evans, MD, Melissa Joseph, MD, James Bonz, MD, Ambrose Wong, MD, MSEd, MHS, Samuel Buck, MD

We will identify safety barriers to adopting COVID-19 guidelines in the emergency department, assess the impact of a simulation-based preparedness intervention on physician stress and anxiety, and test a simulation-based process improvement strategy to increase emergency department safety culture during COVID-19.
