      Accessing and engaging physicians for the purpose of IPAC education can be challenging. One promising approach may be to take advantage of high fidelity simulation education. Over the past two decades with advancements in technology, high fidelity simulation with mannequins is increasingly being used in both medical schools and hospitals to promote physician competency, practical training and safer patient care. This session explores how IPAC can make use of such simulations to teach physicians infection prevention and control practices and principles.
