SIMULATION CENTER (exhibition area)

Sim' Challenge: FULL-SCALE SIMULATION IN INTENSIVE CARE & EMERGENCY MEDICINE

We are proud to announce the first ever ISICEM High Fidelity Full-Scale Simulation Challenge in collaboration with Urgent e-Sim formation:
img1


The challenge will involve teams of emergency or intensive care professionals (3-4 members in each team) who will be immersed in a simulated Emergency Room or Intensive Care Unit and asked to use their experience and skills to take care of patients/manikins in several real-life scenarios between March 23 and 24.


The teams that have earned the most "life points" for their patient management will then participate in an incredible final scenario on Thursday March 24 at 3:00 p.m. to determine the overall ISICEM Simulation Challenge Winners for 2022!


If you are registered for ISICEM and want to take part as a team or team member please contact us. If you are not yet registered for ISICEM, then register now.


These sessions are also a great way to learn practical patient management, so if you don’t want to be in a team, why not just come and watch!

All sessions are original and will be broadcast live on ugts.fr.
