I had an opportunity to participate in the SAFETY project. I worked in the development of practical e-learning modules – Turning training materials into e-learning courses. More specifically, my team produced different simulation scenarios related to medical education for the participants of this project. Emergency physicians, medicine and cardiology specialists, paramedics, and the [...]
Cognitive aids have been present in the non-medical industry for a long time. For instance, the aviation industry has been using cognitive aids since 1930. The reasoning behind it was that experts in aviation safety considered that even highly experienced and trained pilots may need more than their memory to fly an aircraft [...]
Among novel and appealing methods, game-based learning has recently become an exciting and innovative teaching approach in education in a wide range of sectors and disciplines. Various interesting games are more frequently used in medical teaching, given that game-based learning adds diverse game elements to other non-game areas to encourage engagement and raise [...]
High-fidelity simulation increases the safety and competence of operators in delivery rooms throughout a whole region
Introduction The delivery room is a high-risk environment for patients. Its effects on the professionals working there should not be underestimated. In aviation, periodically repeated mandatory training and simulation helps to increase the safety of passengers and crew. In medicine, high-fidelity simulation enables realistic training at a high level, which can increase not [...]

Optimal Team Composition for Simulation Training in Medical Emergencies: Unveiling the Missing Piece
The Society for Simulation in Europe (SESAM) held its annual conference in Lisbon from the 14th to the 16th of June. (SESAM Lisbon 2023 | SESAM (sesam-web.org)) Camilla Normand from the University of Stavanger represented the SAFETY group. She presented an abstract on optimal team composition in emergency treatment. Resuscitation simulation training has [...]
The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 830 women die from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth every day, with most of these deaths occurring in low-resource settings. Simulation in obstetrics can help to address this issue by providing healthcare professionals with the necessary training and skills to manage complicated births and [...]
