    Multidisciplinary Trauma Education Utilizing a Human Patient Simulator

    Management of pediatric trauma is complex and requires a multidisciplinary team including trauma surgeons, emergency medicine physicians, fellows and residents, nurses and respiratory therapists.

    To provide the highest level of care, this group must work efficiently as a team and utilize a "shared mental model." To maximize continued education in the care of the injured child, we utilize a high-fidelity human patient simulator. This education allows us to demonstrate improved teamwork and leadership among team members, more rapid recognition and management of injuries, and, ultimately, improved outcomes for severely injured children.
