In-Situ Simulation (SIM) is as an excellent interprofessional educational tool for team training. SIM also allows experienced staff to refresh on core clinical concepts. We aimed to improve teamwork, communication, and familiarity with ED equipment and protocols required during resuscitation of high-acuity patients in a low-acuity community ER by conducting monthly ED In-Situ simulations.
Co-Presenter: Andrew Restivo, MD About the co-presenter: I've been interested in simulation since I graduated residency back in 2011. I am currently the Director of Simulation Education for the Department of EM at the Albert Einstein//Jacobi-Montefiore Medical Centers. I've taken the debriefing courses hosted by NYU Sim and IMSAL. Currently we run regular simulation activities with our residents on a weekly basis including grand rounds, small group, procedural sims and insitu simulations. We have participated in and have won several national and regional simulation exercise competitions. I helped found and develop the ALLNYCEM Bronx SimWars committee which hosts annual competitions in the NYC area. I have also worked with and mentored several of our recent simulation fellow graduates. I look forward to continuing to expand our educational simulation curriculum to all learners and training levels within our institution.
