Introduction to the Simulation Lab and SimMan®

This video is designed to help McMaster University Nursing School students orientate to the simulation lab and the patient manikin (SimMan®) before their simulation activities. Although it is geared towards the specific needs of nursing students, this video can also serve as a general orientation tool for other healthcare professional trainees who will come to the similar simulation environment for their educational activities.
