Breaking the COVID-19 Barriers to Health Professional Team Training With Online Simulation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOtherpeer-review


SUMMARY STATEMENT: The COVID-19 pandemic led to disruption of most interprofessional simulation workshops in our center, including the obstetric and neonatal emergency simulation or ONE-Sim workshops for medical, nursing, midwifery students, and health professional staff in Australia and overseas.We devised online versions of the workshop for students and staff. In this report, we describe the details of these innovative online workshops. This has enabled us to continue this vital simulation-based education during the pandemic, when strict lockdowns, physical distance requirements, and travel restrictions precluded the usual conduct of these workshops.The online workshops were well received by students and staff in Australia and overseas. Some important lessons that were learned from the preliminary experience of these workshops are detailed in this report.
