Pediatric Resident Simulation

Resident Led Team-Based Resuscitation Simulation Boot Camp

at Jahra Hospital


Time:  Group 1 8:30 am – 10:55 am

            Group 2 11:00 am – 1:30 pm


Target participants: R3 to R5 Pediatric residents, PICU nurses, and respiratory therapists


Course Description

Our simulation workshop will use high-fidelity simulation in actual patient rooms in the hospital (in situ) to provide realistic experiences that enable participants to improve teamwork, closed-loop communication, clinical decision-making, and individual skills in a safe learning environment.  Following each simulated experience of a real-life scenario, debriefing will occur to promote self-reflection and apply the session’s learning points to clinical practice.


Each simulation group will be divided into three smaller groups that will rotate between the three rooms to experience three simulation scenarios. Each scenario will take 20 minutes for the simulation followed by 15 minutes of expert debriefing. Each group will consist of 6 residents, 2 PICU nurses, and 1 RT. Each group will select a different team leader for each scenario. There will be a large group pre-brief before the simulation starts. After completing the three scenarios, we will have a large group debrief.


Educational Goal: To provide participants with the unique learning opportunity to improve competence and performance by working effectively as a team to manage unstable patients during multiple high-fidelity simulated scenarios


Learning Objectives

After participating in this workshop, attendees should be able to:

  • Improve patient safety and quality of care through teamwork, effective communication, and clinical decision-making
  • Apply the five main principles of crisis resource management skills (role clarity, communication, personnel support, resource utilization, global assessment) when managing critically ill, unstable patients
  • Demonstrate proficiency in essential life-saving clinical skills, including airway management, vascular access, and chest tube insertion.

 * This is a CME-accredited workshop. Upon completion of the workshop, a certificate of participation will be given to you.
