This scenario is designed to allow health care professionals to come together and work as a team around a critically ill newborn using advanced-technology simulation either in the simulation centre or in-situ. Once the pre-brief (including orientation if need be) and briefing is complete the scenario starts.
The health care team arrives either ‘en-masse’ or seperately ie RN and RT first and MD soon after. The simulation team will react and change the simulator as guided by the sim lead.
