In Situ Simulation (Half Day): In situ simulation is increasingly recognised as offering many potential advantages.These include the benefits of team training, ease and equality of access,integration into routine working practices and identification of latent errors.Establishing and sustaining an in situ simulation programme poses particularchallenges.
