"Resident for a Day" : How a Simulation Experience Influences Future Leaders in "Culture Change"

One way to influence industry-wide leaders is to integrate applied experiences into educational programming for future professionals. In this study we examined how a 24-hour simulation experience can influence future leaders of long tem care organizations to implement culture change.
