Simulation centers are making a profound impact when preparing health care professionals and students for the "what if." With patient safety, outcomes and pay for performance factors at the forefront of health care providers’ missions, simulation centers are taking center stage preparing the healthcare team for everyday situations, new advanced surgery techniques to a major catastrophic event. Simulation centers are able to replicate scenarios through cutting edge robotics and audio visual technology that create an immersive experience. From simulating pre-hospital scenarios to replicating the slightest symptom signs, the first impression a simulation experience offers can greatly assist in the future decision-making and response skills of care providers.
