Simulation-based medical education (SBME) is often resource-intensive, yet rigorous evaluation of the costs and benefits of simulation programmes or activities is rare. Lin et al.1 raise the important issue of economic evaluation of SBME and offer guidance on its implementation by exploring challenges and opportunities. We offer support for discipline in the economic evaluation of simulation while urging [...]
Although in recent years the absolute number of women earning degrees across science, technology, engineering, and medical fields (STEM) has increased relative to men, gender equality is a widely discussed and researched concept. There is a great debate at international level on the mismatch of skills, necessary and required for building a satisfying career not commonly taught [...]
The Simulation Centre in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care in Bucharest (CESIMAB) is one of the five simulation centres in Romania established and equipped in 2019, collaborating between Romanian authorities and the Swiss Government. Its activity has been steadily improving through in-house training, participation in international projects such as C-19 Space, and courses provided at the national congresses [...]
CPR Guidelines highlight the importance of reducing interruption in chest compressions, regardless of the reasons for this pause, because this has a strong negative association with survival. Brouwer’s study outcomes conclude that prolonged interruptions for reasons other than shock delivery have an equally strong association with survival as found earlier for prolonged peri-shock interruptions1. In addition, the [...]

We all know from our own experiences, that a lesson taught in a typical classroom is not necessarily a lesson learned. Sitting in overheated [...]
SAFETY project aims to renew the existing training offer and to overcome training gaps, making practitioners safer and ready to operate in real emergency conditions or collaborate with companies involved in the development of medical simulation tools. Medical simulation is a medical training technique in which a medical situation is simulated, and students are given the opportunity [...]
