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:
