Campus Flemingsberg Alfred Nobels Alle 8

The Virtual Triage Exercise (ViTriEx) was developed to provide healthcare workers and students with skills and knowledge to triage and manage mass casualty simulations. It's open access, virtual, and interactive teaching methodology makes it a good opportunity for educators and leaders to learn more of the methodology as well as how it can train learners in both communication, leadership, and organization.

This session is a part of KI's Educational Congress 2022

To be able to attend you need to register to the congress. More information of the congress: KI Educational congress 2022.

Background

The Virtual Triage Exercise (ViTriEx) was developed to provide healthcare workers and students with skills and knowledge to triage and manage mass casualty simulations. It is open access, low rescore, virtual, and interactive teaching methodology. It provides the students with concrete tools to triage in mass casualty situations and train them in both communication, leadership, and organization during situations of time constraints and limited resources.

The project was initially developed to train undergraduate students in managing mass casualty simulations, and to adapt to online teaching in the initial stages of the covid19 pandemic. Since then, the method has been applied to train hundreds of Swedish medical undergraduate students and has contributed to the development of an offline analog simulation methodology that has been applied to train medical doctors in Moldova and Ukraine.

Aim and learning outcomes

  • Share knowledge about how to use and adapt open-access virtual methodologies to medical education.
  • Inspire application of interactive and virtual methodologies in undergraduate teaching.
  • Demonstrate a methodology to provide healthcare workers and students with enhanced disaster preparedness.

Target group

  • Course managers and teachers are interested to learn about how to use and adapt open-access virtual methodologies to healthcare training and education.
  • Healthcare practitioners and others who want to learn about open access, low resource, and interactive simulation methodology that can equip health care workers and students with skills and knowledge to triage and manage mass casualty simulations.

Workshop method

This workshop will provide the participants with a background on the development of this simulation methodology, followed by a demonstration.
