486 - WHY A SIMULATION PROGRAM IS USEFUL FOR A TRANSPORT TEAM
High and Low Fidelity Simulation Scenarios are used for health professionals in order to improve their crisis resource management (CRM) and medical skills. Our Neonatal and Paediatric Transport Team (NPTT) has been using this kind of simulation since 2014.
To Describe the benefits of a simulation program for a NPTT from participants' point of view.
Six transport team members are high-fidelity simulation instructors. The needs of the team were assessed following an internal survey. A complete transport team (a paediatrician, a nurse and a technician) were the participants on each scenario. The scenarios were set in a high fidelity simulation room in our hospital and in our ambulance.
Table 1 summarises the scenarios.
The peculiarities of NPTT demand to their workers to be ready for unexpected and uncommon but threaten events. Then, simulation seems to be the ideal tool to be prepared for it.
