Simulation-based medical education is an evolving field that allows trainees to practice skills, expand knowledge, and build self-confidence in a safe and controlled environment with no risk to patients. Mock codes, as part of resuscitation simulation, play an important role in improving performance in cardiac arrest resuscitation events in hospitals. These simulation exercises/mock codes can be extremely valuable in evaluating team dynamics and performance, as well as increasing confidence and knowledge of its members, particularly since many healthcare professionals train independently and not as part of a team. This webinar will lay the groundwork for implementing mock codes in any facility.
Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
1) Discuss the value of performing mock codes
2) Describe the importance of getting “buy-in”
3) Describe the process to implement mock codes
4) Discuss the importance of delineating team roles
