The ASA Committee on Simulation Education was formed in 2006, and converted to an Editorial Board in 2012. The group’s mission is to foster access to high-quality simulation-based training for ASA members. To accomplish this, they developed endorsement criteria for simulation programs and, since 2007, have endorsed 33 programs that comprise the ASA Simulation Educational Network (SEN). Links to endorsed programs can be found on the ASA Simulation webpage: starting at the For Members header on the ASA home page, www.asahq.org, select Education and Events, then Simulation Education.
The American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) recognizes simulation training as an innovative approach for physicians to assess their clinical and teamwork skills in managing critical events. In January 2010 the ABA incorporated simulation as a requirement in the Practice Performance Assessment and Improvement (PPAI) portion of the Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®). This change responded to the American Board of Medical Specialties requirement that specialists assess the quality of the care they provide and apply consensus recommendations to improve that care. This use of simulation training by ABA and ABMS is, in part, recognition that experiential learning is expected to have more substantial impact on practice improvement, clinical competency and patient safety than can be achieved by traditional learning methods.
