The Simulation-assisted Emergency Medicine Procedures course (SEMP) was designed to allow physicians to acquire, review, and practice their skills in essential life-saving emergency procedures.
Before the course, the students will have access to web-based learning modules. These online modules will demonstrate the cognitive aspects of performing the procedure. Learners will complete this self-directed learning at their convenience, before arriving for the one-day hands-on procedure lab and human patient simulator sessions.
ONSITE @ VGH Simulation Centre:
The hands-on portion of the course consists of experienced instructors who will demonstrate the procedures and supervise the learners as they practice on animal and realistic plastic models. The learners will have the opportunity to integrate performance of these procedures into the real-time resuscitation of a critically ill patient using the latest Human Patient Simulator technology to create realistic scenarios.
