JEMS Webinar: Benefits of Simulation-Based Clinical Skills Competitions
Simulated patient care scenarios are recognized as one of the best methods to help educate as well as assess the clinical skills of EMTs and paramedics. With the exception of team-based CPR delivery, training and assessing a provider’s clinical skills typically involves a single student performing skills on a simulated patient. But how often are EMS personnel the only person treating a single patient? In this webcast, you’ll learn how clinical skills competitions not only offer a team-based approach to skills training and assessment, but also the many benefits that extend beyond the classroom or training room.
