Medical simulation owes its origins to efforts aimed at improving crisis management in anaesthesiology. From its inception, this new modality of education highlighted the importance of team dynamics as being crucial to the successful management of high-risk situations. Crisis resource management (or CRM) has provided a framework for understanding and teaching the cognitive and interpersonal dynamics of team organization and decision-making. Its acceptance, along with the uptake of simulation in a huge variety of medical and nursing training programmes facilitated customization of simulation-based teamwork training to a variety of practice and education environments. Examples of the evolution of CRM concepts are discussed, including training of medical emergency teams and in situ simulation.
