Simulation-based education is often highlighted as a method to prepare health personnel to handle clinical emergencies through repeated training and the design of supports.

Case reviews of anaphylaxis management continue to identify deficiencies in clinical responses. We evaluated the evidence to support the use of simulation to address these deficiencies. We undertook a comprehensive review of the MEDLINE and Embase databases with MESH terms 'Anaphylaxis', 'Anaesthesia', 'Simulation training', and variations of these terms. Articles w..
