Topics covered by others in the collaborative include:
The simulation videos are intended to demonstrate patient care scenarios in the context of the NYS collaborative protocols. Like the rest of medicine, there are different ways of practicing EMS and we encourage providers to watch the videos with a critical eye and think about how they would debrief the scenarios if they were the instructor/supervisor. Separate links for each module are listed so that you can chose which you would like to share with the providers in your region based on your needs. Special thanks to Laerdal for their assistance with these videos.
