An international team-based simulation competition
Director – Simulation programme: Prof Guillaume Alinier (Qatar)
Co-Director – Simulation programme: Prof Denis Oriot (France)
Chair: Dr Viliam Dobiáš (Slovakia)
Co-chairs: Dr David Kessler (USA), Dr Jan Maršálek (Czech Republic), Dr Jiří Staňa (Czech Republic)
The simulation competition is an event where Emergency Departments or Pre-hospital care teams from various countries will be able to compete against each other in a friendly way, through exposure to simulated clinical cases involving simulated patients (actors) or patient simulators (mannequins). The simulation competition will take place throughout the Congress and will require teams to take part in different scenarios. The performance of the teams will be evaluated by independent judges and the winning teams are those that achieve the highest number of points in their respective category: Students, with physician, without physician, in Emergency department or pre-hospital environment.
Areas evaluated include: safety on scene, history taking, physical examination, care and treatment, and optimal theoretical direction to the best suitable hospital. Situations will be varied and include internal and neurological diseases, trauma, psychiatric emergencies and paediatric emergencies. Standard ambulance equipment will be provided, though teams can use their own equipment if they desire.
Number of Participants per Team
A team is expected to include paramedics, nurses, and/or physicians according to national rules (usually 2-4 members). The teams that include physicians will be evaluated separately.
Simulation Competition Objectives
Simulation Competition Process
The scenarios and their patients (actor or mannequin) should be considered as real. The same time limit will apply to each scenario for all teams. Participants will be expected to react to information gathered from history taking, physical examination, and treatment, and will have to provide adequate care accordingly. Judges may announce some specific information pending request for blood pressure, glycaemia, pulse rate, oxygen saturation, etc. Team members are expected to communicate with one another as well as with their patient during the scenarios. Towards the end of the scenario the team leader must announce to the judges how and where the patient will be transported. Judges will give points for each correct step according to a prescribed scenario sheet. After completing a scenario, each team will be invited to a session to discuss their performance with other team members and judges, according to international bodies and guidelines (like ERC, AHA, ILCOR, PTLS, ATLS, ALS, ACLS, ILS, etc).
Each team must present themselves during the opening session of the simulation competition on the first day of the conference. Do not miss this session!!!
