Abstract

This exploration examines how clinical simulation, performed in hospitals as a form of training, can be understood as play, involving creating and maintaining fictions, role-playing theatrical characters and erecting satisfying narrative structures. In using play as an analytical concept, the significance of clinical simulation can be understood in terms of learning about the meaning of medical work, rather than developing technical skills only. We draw on observational work of simulation-based education across several London hospitals.
