Simulation for COVID-19 emergency preparedness
Simulation resource personnel from across the country are now being called upon to run in situ simulations in their own hospitals and to prepare and ensure that staff have the right viral protection, as well the correct treatment of COVID-19 patients.
So that techniques and experience can be shared in the current situation, we will take responsibility for collecting and sharing actions and scenarios used by health professionals from across Norway and publish these on www.safer.net under the auspices of RegSim Vest and SAFER.
