Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

At this magical time of year, the SAFETY team would like to send sincere Christmas greetings and a Happy New Year to all of you who are an integral part of our project community dedicated to medical simulation. Christmas is a special time when we reflect on our achievements throughout the year and celebrate the strength of [...]

The relevance of making your voice heard

When talking about simulation, probably for most of us the first thing coming to mind is education –for a good reason, of course. Simulation is an educational method. Education, however, does not happen in a vacuum. It is, and this applies even more to the healthcare field, a highly regulated environment, where changes are usually slow and [...]

Are you ready? SAFETY platform receiving last touch before official launch

The SAFETY (Simulation Approach For Education and Training in EmergencY) project is an innovative e-learning course aimed at enhancing emergency medical education. Developed by a consortium of academic and industry partners, it integrates theoretical and practical modules with virtual simulated patients for a blended learning experience. The project, in its third year, boasts ten peer-reviewed theoretical modules, [...]

Sharing simulation experiences: a realistic low-cost thoracostomy phantom

Thoracostomy is indicated in life-threatening situations such as tension pneumothorax or massive hemothorax, and usually performed in the emergency department and intensive care units (ICUs). These clinical situations are relatively uncommon and extremely stressful. Besides, this invasive procedure can result in potentially lethal complications such as bleeding and damage to the lungs, heart, or trachea, leaving little [...]

Simulation – Based Learning with Virtual Patients for Education and Training in Emergency Situations

In the world of emergency healthcare, it is important to be well-prepared and knowledgeable. Simulation-based learning is widely considered as the optimal alternative for teaching and evaluating medical students, as it has the potential to improve the quality of education, training, and assessment.[1] Simulation training has proven its effectiveness, improving the knowledge-based performance of medical students. [2] [...]

Simulation in the time of Covid

Simulation in neonatology is of great help in improving and maintaining skills in dealing with rarely occurring situations such as neonatal asphyxia, which, however, require rapid intervention. During the pandemic, we analyzed whether the personal protective devices necessarily worn in the case of delivery by a COVID-positive mother could also be an obstacle to the resuscitation of [...]
