How can we push the boundaries of healthcare simulation research, leading to new insights and innovations? The healthcare simulation community has shown the benefits of simulation as an educational strategy, while also demonstrating an approach to study clinical activity and behaviour in a reproducible way. Scholarly inquiry has demonstrated the value of robust interventions, and now collectively our field is considering turning its attention not to ‘if’ simulation works, but ‘how’, ‘to what ends,’ and ‘under what conditions’.
Recently, Advances in Simulation announced a new “methodological intersections” article type, in order to help advance our thinking about simulation research. In this thematic series, we seek manuscripts that challenge our collective thinking about how to conceptualise, frame, study, and theorise simulation in health and social care. To this end, we seek contributions from diverse paradigms that use relevant theory and innovative methodologies and methods to help us advance the field.
