Medical Simulation experiences during initial Emergency Medical Services (EMS) education has been shown to be beneficial in more ways than one. Interestingly, recent research conducted by Gurnakova and Gropel in Austria, suggests that experienced EMS practitioners may also benefit from healthcare simulation training (Gurnakova, J. Gropel, P. Prior Participation in Simulation Events is Associated With [...]
Ambulance Simulation for EMS students is an important aspect of training that may be difficult to reproduce repeatedly. Not many programs have available access to a contemporary ambulance due to obvious cost or scheduled “active duty” cycles. Enter Vassar College who empowered an EMT student with set building experience to help build them their “Simbulance”, [...]
EMSWorld recently interviewed Moulage expert Bobbie Merica of MoulageConcepts.com to learn how moulage makeup can improve the educational outcomes of simulation by increasing the realism for learners. Here are a couple of excerpts from the EMSWorld article entitled “The Importance of Accuracy in Moulage Training” by Valeria Amato:
What advice would you give people [...]
