Toolkit: Frail Aging Simulation

Simulation is the imitation or emulation of some real thing, state of affairs or process. It is a methodology to help achieve educational goals. The most powerful and efficacious simulations are conducted based on strong educational principles, run by expert facilitators and within the context of the objectives of a curriculum.
