Simulation in healthcare can promote patient safety by teaching the range of clinical as well as the non-behavioural skills required in the healthcare setting. Clinical Skills, problem-solving and collaboration within a multi-disciplinary team can be simulated with a spectrum of fidelity mannikins and taught within a safe dedicated space, for example, the simulation suite in the Trinity Centre (TSS)

The skills of running a successful simulation scenario will promote patient safety by the participants learning the skills to understand how to implement successful simulation sessions from an educational perspective. Simulation can also address quality issues by running scenarios that identify system and human factors issues allowing for improving workflows in the healthcare setting
