ESPNIC Simulation Lab Sessions

Join the ESPNIC Simulation Lab sessions!

After the amazing experience during EAPS 2018 involving 100 attendees from more than 40 different countries, The ESPNIC Simulation Working Group will offer again high-fidelity simulation sessions at the ESPNIC 2019 Meeting. 

These simulation sessions using state of the art equipment will help delegates train for real life emergencies in their own hospitals. They represent a unique simulation learning experience that encourages an open and motivational discussion of performance and error, instilling the principles of teamwork in participants' approaches to healthcare.  

All delegates will have the opportunity to manage and/or observe some paediatric and neonatal challenging clinical cases, including ECMO. During the 90 minute sessions, one clinical scenario is reproduced in a fully immersive simulation environment. Participants will be able to do exactly the same things they can do in a paediatric ER, NICU or PICU to deal with medical emergencies using a 'high fidelity' manikin that reacts identically to a patient kindly provided by CAE healthcare. After each scenario, skilled instructors provide feedback during a debriefing session in which all delegates will take part and can discuss together. These hands-on workshops will be accessible during the whole meeting and each attendee can register for a simulation session in a specific topic choosing between PICU, NICU and neonatal or paediatric ECMO.    

The ESPNIC sim Lab will be placed on the 2nd floor of meeting venue.

8 sessions a day of 2 hours (90 min effective) will be available with the following schedule:
