abstract

  • Patient- and family-centered care focuses on relationships among patients, families, and health care providers that are mutually beneficial and improve health care outcomes and provider satisfaction. Building relationships is a key component of the provision of excellent health care and can be taught and enhanced through simulation-based communication skills training. This article reviews the available literature on simulation-based learning as used to improve patient- and family- centered communication in the discipline of pediatrics. In this narrative review, we examine the various methods, theories, and frameworks on which simulation-based learning for communication skills are built with the goal of assisting pediatric providers in using this powerful educational technique.
