The role of simulation in the reduction of medical errors
from By Joan Spitrey
If you have taken a CPR class in the last few decades, you are familiar with Resusci Annie, the manikin used for learning CPR. The first Annie was invented to provide life-like training in the 1960s, and her soft helpless face was to inspire the rescuer to want to help the "dead" person. Today, the use of simulation has evolved way beyond the initial revolutionary thoughts of the first creators of Annie. The use of simulations is now an integral part of most healthcare providers' curricula.
