Strokes remains a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Acute therapies for stroke patients are constantly evolving with clinical outcomes being highly time-dependent. Diagnosis and treatment are characterized by specific competencies that have to be applied in an emergency situation, and within an interdisciplinary team.
In Baptist Health’s unique simulation training program, participants practice cognitive and technical skills on stroke care protocols and procedures. The interactive simulation models are developed to respond to participants’ actions through role playing. Immediate debriefing allows multidisciplinary teams to reflect on their communication, actions and overall performance in patient assessment, team communication, time management and implementation of standardized care.
