Simulation-based training facilitates the use of higher order thinking skills. The simulations Children’s Mercy Kansas City have developed in the NICU, Fetal Health Center and with ECMO challenge medical teams to develop cognitive, technical and behavioral skills through the use of mannequins, working medical equipment and colleagues.
