This is a practical guide to the use of simulation in emergency medicine training and evaluation. It covers scenario building, debriefing, and feedback, and it discusses the use of simulation for different purposes, including education, crisis resource management and interdisciplinary team training. Divided into five sections, the book begins with the historical foundations of emergency medicine, as well as education and learning theory. In order to effectively relay different simulation modalities and technologies, subsequent chapters feature an extensive number of practical scenarios to allow readers to build a curriculum. These simulations include pediatric emergency medicine, trauma, disaster medicine, and ultrasound. Chapters are also organized to meet the needs of readers who are in different stages of their education, ranging from undergraduate students to medical directors. The book then concludes with a discussion on the future and projected developments of simulation training. Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation: Emergency Medicine is an invaluable resource for a variety of learners, from medical students, residents, and practicing emergency physicians to emergency medical technicians, and health-related professionals.
