Introduction
Professor Amitai Ziv, a pediatrician and an ex-Air Force pilot, is helping transform the way medical and other community service professionals (from healthcare professionals and social workers to secondary educators) are trained and evaluated, in order to enhance the social and professional skill sets of these professions. Amitai, a leader in simulation-based medical education (SBME) is bringing about a “safety revolution”—offering a significant step forward in improving patient care, reducing medical error, and embedding a systemic and transparent quality improvement process into often old and conservative training regimes, thus contributing to a deep change in patient safety culture of today’s healthcare systems.
