Additional Resources

There are many resources available regarding simulation education, simulation-based assessment, simulation-based research, and systems integration; here are some suggestions for further exploration:

  • The Instructor Manual for Neonatal Resuscitation, 6th Edition includes chapters on simulation and debriefing.
  • The NRP Instructor DVD is a comprehensive interactive DVD with video-based depiction of the skills, techniques and technologies for effective scenario development and debriefing. This "workshop in a box" serves as a guide to help prepare the NRP instructor to implement a simulation-based learning methodology.
  • HealthStream and Laerdal have joined forces to bring you SimStore, an easy and effective tool for delivering validated simulation-based curricula. Watch this video to learn more about the benefits SimStore can provide.
  • The Center for Advanced Pediatric and Perinatal Education (CAPE) prepares physicians, nurses and allied health care professionals to successfully manage unpredictable medical emergencies through training experiences that pose no risk to human life.
  • The Society for Simulation in Healthcare is membership organization geared to providing excellence in healthcare through simulation modalities.
  • The International Pediatric Simulation Society is a membership organization dedicated to using simulation to improve pediatric simulation education and patient outcomes.
  • Pediatric Education for Prehospital Professionals (PEPP) represents a complete source of prehospital medical information for the emergent care of infants and children. Developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, PEPP is an exciting curriculum designed specifically to teach prehospital professionals how to better assess and manage ill or injured children.
  • APLS: The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Resource is a continuing medical education program developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). APLS features an innovative modular curriculum designed to present the information physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals need to assess and care for critically ill and injured children during the first few hours in the emergency department or office-based setting.
