SSH seeks to improve performance and reduce errors in patient care through the use of simulation. SSH fosters the improvement and application of simulation–based modalities such as human patient simulators, virtual reality, standardized patients and task trainers. Recognizing that simulation represents a paradigm shift in health care education, SSH promotes improvements in simulation technology, educational methods, practitioner assessment, and patient safety that promote better patient care and can improve patient outcome.
Gaumard® Scientific Company has designed, manufactured and marketed simulators for health care education for more than 60 years.
