Abstract : In this report, we discuss the application of human factors and ergonomics to developing effective simulation training in health care. Simulation provides a safe, effective method for training and assessing human performance. In aviation, simulation-based training and assessment has been widely used, significantly improving safety. This progress would have been impossible without the involvement of human factors and ergonomics. Although aviation and health care have similarities, there also are differences that complicate the widespread implementation of simulation in health care.
