Interprofessional Critical Care Simulations

About the Program

The Interprofessional Critical Care Simulations (ICCS) equips final year medical and nursing students with the capacity to manage deteriorating patients in an inpatient setting. In the six-hour, simulation-based course, students discover patients with a worsening clinical status and collaborate across professions to diagnose and manage the patient. Layered in this care is also practice in escalating both interprofessionally and across the medical hierarchy. After the course, students are more prepared for their first day as a floor nurse or intern. The program has also been featured in several national presentations.
