Sequential Simulation (SqS) is the physical re-enactment of longitudinal elements of care, rather than single episodes, as is currently the main format of most healthcare simulations. It takes a patient's perspective of their care pathway journey through the system rather than the healthcare professionals perspectives alone. It has been used for a variety of applications including training multi-disciplinary teams on end-of-life care, initiating integrated care, quality improvement projects, designing new models of care, evaluating new interventions, and improving care of the deteriorating patient, to name but a few.1,2 Its applications are wide, and therefore the design process can be complex. This workshop draws on an empirically and theoretically driven model, to guide participants in designing Sequential Simulations for a variety of clinical objectives.
