Abstract

The prevalence of teamwork training programs in health care is growing, and simulation-based training (SBT) is an important component of these interventions. SBT can be a powerful tool for building teamwork competencies in a safe and realistic environment when effectively integrated into a comprehensive training curriculum.Thus, training designers and clinical experts must collaborate to ensure that SBT is developed systematically. In this article, we strive to bridge the combined expertise of training practitioners and health care providers to offer a guide to the process of developing effective SBT scenarios, specifically those focused on teamwork.
