Abstract

Many argue that experience is the best teacher. However, it's often dangerous for the patient and impractical for an EMS system to assess prehospital providers in their actual working environment. Simulated scenario competition fosters clearer thinking and translates into more effective action and enhanced patient outcomes during true emergencies.
