High-fidelity mannequin simulations provide interprofessional teams with practice in critical decision-making, teamwork, team leadership, and team communication skills.

Facilitated debriefings help participants increase their repertoire of effective team behaviors.

Sample projects focusing on team training include:

Rapid Response Team Training

Residents, nurses and respiratory therapists practice responding to hospital “patient” crises simulated by mannequins in-situ at the University of Illinois Hospital.

Pre-Critical Care Rotation Workshop

Internal Medicine residents, Pharmacy residents and Nurse Practitioner students practice effective responses to critical care emergencies and ACLS scenarios.
