Join us for our  next Virtual SUN

Improving Remote Simulation Outcomes ​using the INACSL Standards of Best Practice

October 28th | 8.30am (IST; UTC+5:30)​

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all to pivot and look for new ways to deliver our simulation content with the expectation that our outcomes will be the same. Remote simulation is a novel methodology that involves delivering mannequin-based simulation content virtually using a video conferencing platform. Please join us on October 28 for an engaging and informative discussion with a team of global experts who will share how to best apply the INACSL Standards of Best Practice to this emerging pedagogy. ​

The International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) Standards of Best Practice are designed to advance the science of simulation, share best practices, and provide evidence-based guidelines for implementation and training.​
