Most of us will recognize the old adage, “practice makes perfect.” I’ve seen that modified, appropriately I believe, to “perfect practice makes perfect.” True skill is the result of repeated practice, followed by expert feedback to move each subsequent attempt closer to perfection until the mental focus and physical performance move as a unit into the realm of muscle memory and become “automatically” perfect every time. That level of competence feeds the sense of confidence necessary to permit one to employ that skill whenever needed, under any circumstance.
Exploring every option to enhance the realism presented in training our future doctors, nurses and clinicians is at the heart of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare’s mission. ReaLifeSim, LLC supports their efforts and shares in their advocacy.
