SimBox Simulations Empower PECCs to Achieve Their Agency Education Goals
At the January 2022 National Association of EMS Physicians Annual Meeting, our team presented EMS provider evaluations of prehospital pediatric SimBox training. SimBox is a free-to-use, all-in-one resource for simulation education. Strengths of the program include resources for facilitators and debriefers, ease use and avoiding the need for costly simulation equipment. Check out our poster here:
Meriden Connecticut Pediatric EMS Training: Getting Ready for Summer Hazards
As part of a combined effort by CT-EMSC and our Targeted Issues Project, we conducted an outdoor experiential learning opportunity for EMS providers from across the state. Participants completed simulations, including a drowning scenario, a child with anaphylaxis from a bee sting, and a teen who had an open leg fracture along with heat stroke.
