Comparison of uses of the simulation technologies between HICs and LMICs (findings based on literature review and survey data)

HICsLMICs
  • Medical education studiesā€”using all 6 technologies

  • Quality of care studies

  • Quality of care studies: used standardised patients to assess the care provided by established healthcare providers

  • Quality of care intervention studies: developed an educational programme taught to healthcare providers, who were then assessed using standardised patients at the end, or at certain periods during the educational intervention period

  • Medical education studies: both training and assessment of health trainees of various professions using simulation

  • HICs. High-income countries; LMICs, low income and middle income countries.
