Sustainable practice

Regular practice reinforces new knowledge and skills. Practice also develops skills and improves teamwork and clinical decision-making. Ensure that participants are able to continue low-dose, high-frequency simulation practice.

Select and train Practice Coordinators

Ask one or two people from each facility to coordinate practice sessions. The coordinator will remind their colleagues to practice and will guide the sessions. Prepare Practice Coordinators, so they know how to support their peers.

The last pages of the Provider Guide include practice sessions.
