"This book could easily become the "go to" text for standardized patient utilization and the backbone for implementation strategies in learning programs...It is a must-have for all disciplines interested in adding the human simulation experience to their programs."--Nursing Education Perspectives "Today there is an explosion in the use of simulation in nursing and health professions education. The contributors to this text are experts in this format of teaching. They are the designers of the learning spaces, the authors of simulation cases and evaluation methods, the experts who program the human patient simulators and who teach the patient actors to enact the clinical scenariosÖI consider this a "handbook" on the design, evaluation and practice of simulation for clinical education. If you are a faculty member with concerns about how your students will make the transition from student to professional, use simulation in your curriculum and learn for yourself that pretending is simulation for life but simulation is pretending for the delivery of exquisite clinical care."

Charles Dickens (1812 – 1870) selbst hielt diesen 1844 erschienenen Schelmenroman für eines seiner besten Bücher. Erzählt wird die Geschichte des jungen Martin Chuzzlewit, der von seinem reichen Großvater enterbt wird, weil er sich in dessen Ziehtochter Mary verliebt hat. Daraufhin wandert Martin nach Amerika aus, um dort sein Glück zu suchen. Tatsächlich gerät er jedoch an eine betrügerische Firma zur Landerschließung, in deren Diensten er alle idealistischen Illusionen über die jungen Vereinigten Staaten verliert. Nach einer schweren Erkrankung kehrt er schließlich zurück nach England. Dickens verarbeitete in diesem satirischen Roman die enttäuschenden Erfahrungen seiner ersten Reise 1842 in die USA, wo er statt des erhofften gesellschaftlichen Gegenentwurfs zum reaktionären Europa nur die Herrschaft von Selbstsucht und Gier zu erkennen vermochte.

Wie können Unternehmen mit unerwarteten Situationen umgehen? Um diese Frage zu beantworten, untersuchen die Autoren sogenannte High Reliability Organizations (HROs) - Organisationen, die absolut zuverlässig arbeiten müssen, wie z. B. Fluglotsen oder Feuerwehrmannschaften. An ihren spezifischen Handlungsabläufen kann sich jede Organisation orientieren, um unerwartete Ereignisse und Entwicklungen besser zu verstehen und zu bewältigen. Wie die Methoden der HROs sich in der Unternehmenspraxis umsetzen lassen, zeigt der lösungsorientierte Managementansatz.
