An important part of simulation is ensuring the quality and consistency of evaluators. Though there are many ways to evaluate your evaluators, two effective methods are through inter-rater reliability and through SP Performance Assessments. In this presentation, I would like to discuss some of the motivation behind implementing evaluator assessments as well as some of the challenges we encountered along the way. In particular, I would like to discuss why we chose our methods of evaluating and what we expect to get out of our evaluators’ evaluations.

Key Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the value and importance of a sustainable business plan with a vision mission statement, identify goals and priorities, timing for development and essential stakeholders.
2. Identify the parts of a business plan and steps to develop a simulation center business plan to generate income and meet educational needs.
3. Describe ways to market and promote the business plan including ongoing monitoring.
