Healthcare simulation allows learners to perform procedures, diagnose conditions and communicate with patients in controlled, immersive environments before encountering real-life scenarios.
The adoption of simulation-based healthcare education has grown worldwide in the past decade, and the Middle East is no exception. However, the rate and scope differs, thereby raising the questions – Where are we and where do we need to go? The report examines the state of healthcare simulation in the Middle East vis-a-vis.
