In this podcast episode, we are joined by Flight Physician Mike Abernathy to discuss the importance of high fidelity, simulation training. We discuss common pitfalls of simulation learning, EMS education, and highlight tips and tricks for building successful moulage; the art of applying mock injuries for the purpose of training emergency response teams and other medical and military personnel. Also, Mike advocates for a specific trauma course that seems to be doing things right across the pond.
