There was a widespread discontinuation of simulation programs during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. The objective is to explore how to facilitate greater integration of simulation in healthcare organizations.

A literature review was conducted in PubMed, MEDES, IBECS and DOCUMED databases. Twenty-three articles published after the pandemic were selected, categorized in seven themes and critically reviewed.

In order to consistently and fully integrate simulation into the organizational culture it is recommended to prioritize the development of new strategies that enhance the efficiency and safety of healthcare delivery. And also strategies that enhance the satisfaction and well-being of all stakeholders.

Durante y después de la pandemia de COVID-19 hubo una interrupción generalizada de los programas de simulación. El objetivo es explorar cómo facilitar una mayor integración de la simulación en las organizaciones sanitarias.

Se realizó una revisión crítica de la literatura en las bases de datos PubMed, MEDES, IBECS y DOCUMED. Se seleccionaron veintitrés artículos publicados después de la pandemia, categorizados en siete temas y revisados críticamente.

Para integrar de manera consistente y completa la simulación en la cultura organizacional, se recomienda priorizar el desarrollo de nuevas estrategias que mejoren la eficiencia y la seguridad de la prestación de atención sanitaria. Y también estrategias que potencien la satisfacción y el bienestar de todos los grupos de interés.
