NIBIB and NIDDK are co-sponsoring a one day workshop that will explore the current state of research on simulation, identify gaps in research, and highlight opportunities to:
- Expand basic research on the development and validity of simulation applications to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal and urologic disease
- Promote research on the use of simulation to identify causes for error in detection and treatment, and to assess methods to prevent complications and improve safety
- Improve the quality and uniformity of expert performance
- Identify new methods to analyze the validity and usefulness of simulation applications in clinical care.
