In this episode, Ben and Michael speak to Shane Pritchard about using the concept of a ‘grand narrative’ to structure a simulation programme at scale, across multiple disciplines, in schools of health and social care. We’re all familiar with simulation-based activities within, and maybe even across, disciplinary programmes. But what would it take to build a simulation programme across an entire school?
In this episode, Shane Pritchard, Ben and Michael talk about the increasing use of simulation in professional education, and ask if the definitions of what counts as simulation are being stretched beyond breaking point. We take a critical look at what we mean when we talk about simulation and explore how we might incorporate it into the curriculum.
