Abstract

Geriatrics education is severely limited by the paucity of trained educators and models of care for implementing the standardized and competency-building learning experiences that have been recognized during the past decade. Simulation can increase the reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance of geriatrics education. Through simulation, educators can repeatedly present, with reduced faculty presence, standardized clinical scenarios to multiple learners with no threats to patient autonomy and safety. The knowledge-skill-attitudes elements addressed through simulation can include not only the historically well-tested technical and action skills but also individual cognitive and critical thought processes, team performance, and communication.
