Task training to Crisis Resource Management

Matching the Simulation to the Needs of the Learner

Simulation is a teaching technique that is used in the education of students during their didactic education at Northeastern University. The program utilizes task training mannequins, standardized patients and high-fidelity simulation. Crisis resource management refers to the non-technical skills required for effective teamwork in a crisis situation. In addition to the nature of the task itself, numerous factors affect the performance of complex tasks at the level of the individual, team and the environment. The simulation is developed to match the level of experience of the learner.
