Simulation and Training of Health Professionals

Simulation and Training of Health Professionals

By using simulators in training and education of health professionals, we can achieve greater safety for the patient, as well as a more efficient training.

We investigate how surgeons can practice outside the operating room by using the available simulators, as well as developing its own. The training lab of the National Center for Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery is an important infrastructure. We have also, together with Laerdal, helped to develop a training doll that can simulate ultrasound in the abdominal region. The doll can be used to teach paramedics how to detect bleeding in the stomach. In this way, trauma patients receive proper treatment earlier - www.nsalk.org.
