[Extract] Although simulation-based education (SBE) has a very long history, it has surfaced as in important learning method in contemporary health professions education. In this chapter, we orientate readers to definitions, key concepts and theoretical underpinnings of SBE and introduce two frameworks to enhance SBE practice. Given that this book is about learning and teaching in clinical context, it is important to make connections between simulation and clinical settings. It is far too easy for SBE to become disconnected from the very service it is designed to support, to seem so very specialized that it risks exclusivity. There are many of these while focusing on the features of simulation.
