Simulation for ICU transition: assessment and re-evaluation (SITAR) manual

At a glance

A SITAR project is designed to:

  • maximise staff orientation to the new clinical environment
  • review key aspects of daily practice and workflow
  • mitigate of latent safety threats in both building design and ICU operational structure.

In-situ clinical simulation replicates the day-to-day activities associated with current and projected clinical practice and procedure of the ICU.
