  Fidelity refers to how closely a simulation imitates or amplifies, reality. Miller () indicated that action, or what a person does, is built upon their knowledge, competence, and performance. As a student increases knowledge, competence, performance and action, the level of fidelity is increased in a simulation :// /increasing-fidelity-and-realism-in-simulation.   Gerathewohl, S.J.: Fidelity of simulation and transfer of training: a review of the problem. Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, Office CONTEXT: Fidelity is widely viewed as an important element of simulation instructional design based on its purported relationship with transfer of learning. However, higher levels of fidelity may increase task complexity to a point at which novices' cognitive resources become :// Patrick () has suggested that engineering fidelity is not the issue at all, that the critical determinant of transfer is the psychological fidelity of the simulation device. He notes that when training for cognitive tasks and procedures, high transfer can be achieved with simulations of low physical ://

  High fidelity simulation has become a popular technique for training teamwork skills in high risk industries such as aviation, health care, and nuclear power production. Simulation is a powerful training tool because it allows the trainer to systematically control the schedule of practice, presentation of feedback, and introduction (or suppression) of environmental distractions within a safe If simulation is relevant to training objectives, then the type (see discussion in Chapter 2) and level (see discussion in Chapter 4) of simulation, including fidelity requirements, need to be ://   Simulation training enables training in a safe and non-clinical environment without any risk to patients. Low- and high-fidelity training models and simulators have been shown effective to improve the technical performance of medical staff Simulation training improves resident performance   Simulation-based training is used to develop nursing students’ clinical performance in assessing and managing situations in clinical placements. The use of simulation-based training has increased and become an integrated part of nursing education. The aim of this study was to explore nursing students’ experiences of simulation-based training and how the students perceived the transfer

Although applicable to all areas of human factors research, the old adage is especially relevant to simulation and training. As a tool, simulation is an aid to the imagination, however, if incorrectly or inadequately used, it can lead to inaccurate outcomes that not only limit the possibilities but potentially cause harm. A comprehensive overview of the topic from a
