In the province of Ultrecht, Netherlands, surrounded by lush, pine forests rests the quaint Dutch village of Bilthoven. Part of the municipality of De Bilt (famously the ancestral home of the Vanderbilt family), Bilthoven is also the home of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare’s first fully accredited simulation program in Europe. The Medical Training & Simulation (or METS) Center gained its accreditation from SSH in April of this year, and has been named the Program of the Quarter by the Accreditation Council.

A new award-winning study, “The NCSBN National Simulation Study: A Longitudinal, Randomized, Controlled Study Replacing Clinical Hours with Simulation in Prelicensure Nursing Education,” offers strong evidence supporting the use of high quality healthcare simulation as a substitute for up to 50% of traditional clinical time. The findings also reveal that a key factor in successful nursing education simulation programs is a dedicated team of educators—well-trained in the best practices of theory-based simulation and debriefing methods.

Telling the patient and the family the bad news—it’s a daunting first-time experience for physicians and a staple of television medical dramas frequently portrayed as “There’s a first time for everything. Just get out there and do it.” But in real life, how do medical/health professionals learn to communicate a less than positive diagnosis or prognosis of an illness or—even worse—the death of a loved one?
