About the SimBox Education project

 Free Open Access Medical Simulation Resources for healthcare workers in non-tertiary or prehospital environments

Our Goal

Goal:  To improve the readiness of emergency and prehospital staff to triage, resuscitate, and transfer critically ill infants 

Aims

Regular use of the SimBox will improve team pediatric resuscitation skills and equipment and demystify pediatric guidelines 

Benefits

You do not need to be a pediatric or simulation expert to run this drill!

YOU WILL BECOME A PEDIATRIC CARE CHAMPION!

Technology

SimBox features LOW cost equipment and specially curated teaching tools to make this convenient to use in the workplace

Benefits to learners and patients

This toolkit was specially designed by a team of experts to accommodate the needs of the adult learner

 

Learning is hands-on: 

  • Learners will be able to apply what they know and what they have learned to a real scenario (translational)

  • Patients benefit from improved quality of care and safety

 

Some simulation programs have noted correlations of implementation of simulation with improved neonatal and pediatric survival rates. All of these factors translate directly to improved performance of resuscitation skills. 


​​

 

Simulation in healthcare training and skills maintenance: 

 

Simulation is a “set of techniques to replace or amplify real experiences with planned immersive experiences to evoke or replicate substantial aspects of the real world in an interactive fashion”.

 

Simulation helps to:

  • Decrease fears and anxiety related to pediatric patients and presentations

  • Improve communication between health care team members

  • Increase the knowledge and familiarity with pediatric resuscitation equipment/guidelines

Simulation also appeals to the way adults learn: Practice makes it easier.​​
