The use of, and profile surrounding, simulation as a teaching and learning method across pre-registration and post-qualifying health programmes is increasing, although an examination of the literature suggests that this is occurring most notably within medicine and nursing. This practice analysis explores the emergent literature before presenting how simulation was introduced into a pre-registration undergraduate occupational therapy programme. Reflections on this experience are used to discuss key benefits and challenges when considering the use of this teaching and learning methodology and to identify opportunities for further development in line with the increasing profile and associated expectations of simulated learning.
