B. Implement Simulation Activity

i. Briefing/Orientation

A. Determine the information to provide to simulation participants

B. Communicate potential physical and psychological risks

C. Create a psychologically--‐safe environment

D. Orient (E.g., equipment, environment, expectations)

ii. Conduct simulation

A. Manage personnel and equipment

B. Adapt to evolving simulation and learner needs

C. Problem solve issues that arise during the simulation (E.g., equipment failure, unexpected behaviors or events)

D. Manage physical and psychological risks related to the simulation

E. Assess performance gaps
