Enhancing Realism

Use Simulation-based Training to Reduce Health Disparities and Improve Patient Care

As the patient population grows and becomes more diverse, healthcare providers must be prepared to treat patients of all backgrounds and provide culturally responsible care. Simulation training is often celebrated for the opportunity it creates for participants to assess, diagnose and treat a patient from beginning to end. By adding to a simulation real-world demographics, including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, and geographical location, the patient interaction is made even more realistic.

Many of Laerdal’s versatile task trainers, manikins, and patient simulators are available in a range of skin tones that reflect the diversity of real patients. Using a variety of solutions can enhance the realism of a scenario, while reinforcing the impact of cultural characteristics on a patient’s care.
