PICU teams Simulation

PICU Team-Based Resuscitation Simulation

At Jahra Hospital

Target participants: PICU doctors, PICU nurses, and respiratory therapists

Time: Group 3 2:00 pm – 4: 25 pm

           Group 4 4:30 pm – 7:10 pm


Workshop 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. There will be six groups in total consisting of PICU teams from each hospital in Kuwait: Adan PICU, Jahra PICU, Farwaniya PICU, Mubarak Alkabeer PICU, Sabah PICU, and Jaber PICU. Each simulation scenario will take 20 minutes for the simulation followed by 15 minutes of expert debriefing. Each group will consist of 4-6 doctors, 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.

The top-performing PICU team will receive an award at the conference closing ceremony. PICU teams’ performance will be evaluated based on learning objectives.


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.
