  • realistic
  • Current preterm simulators do not do enough to convey realistic patient experiences, leaving your participants to imagine a high fidelity relationship which minimizes their learning opportunity. (simcharacters.com)
  • Research has shown that more realistic simulators provide improved learning outcomes - and with 1 in every 10 births being preterm - shouldn't your specialized department be the most prepared possible? (simcharacters.com)
