EMS: EMT and Paramedic

Best Practice in Simulation

Standards of Best Practice (SOBP)--  constitute five domains that "...offer practical guidelines for desired outcomes and safe simulation practices..." Developed by The Association of Standardized Patient Educators, the five domains are:  safe work environment; case development; SP training for role portrayal, feedback and completion of assessment instruments; program management, and professional development.

"The SOBP are intended to be used in conjunction with the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) INASCL Standards of Best Practice: SimulationSM, which address broader simulation practices."

Healthcare Simulation Dictionary

Healthcare Simulation Dictionary--  comprised of ~130 words and "...designed to enhance communication and clarity for healthcare simulations in teaching, education, assessment, research, and systems integration activities..." Made available from The Society for Simulation in Healthcare.


EMTB --  This is a "go to" resource for EMT-B students (and instructors).  Explore the left hand side of the page for anatomy review, interactivities, and much more.  This content-rich site is made possible by Jones & Bartlett Publishers and was created by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
