We SEE simulation differently:
Safety * Effectiveness * Efficiency

Upcoming Programs

Simulation Instructor Programs 2019:

May 13-15 (OPEN)



CPQCC Program launched Simulating Success in collaboration with CAPE

In March 2018, the CPQCC Program launched Simulating Success in collaboration with CAPE to help NICUs in California and Oregon implement simulation-based neonatal resuscitation training programs at their hospitals with the goal of improving resuscitation team performance during preterm and term deliveries. Simulating Success is a 15-month project which includes three months of online and in person preparatory training followed by 12 months of implementation. CAPE is providing simulation training expertise and implementation support.

Online Program Coming Soon!

CAPE's Online Debriefing Program is currently in production in partnership with the Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning at Stanford University. Stay tuned for CAPE's Online Debriefing Program coming in early 2019!
