Darlene Hubley, Sean Peacocke, Joanne Maxwell and Kathryn Parker


Simulation has the potential to invigorate teaching practices, facilitate professional development and impact client care. However, there is little literature on using simulation at the level of organizational change in healthcare. In this paper, the authors explore Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital's experience using simulation to enhance the use of technology at the point-of-care. The simulation event demonstrated documentation using technology in two typical practice environments and allowed learners to discuss the challenges and opportunities. Participant feedback was positive overall, and this article reveals important lessons to support the future use of simulation as an educational tool for organizational change.
