All New Cases!!
CEMO Simulation Day is a hands-on, half-day course on resuscitation skills for community health professionals. You'll learn principles of Crisis Resource Management to improve communication and teamwork. You'll participate in resuscitation cases and hone the skills you need in a community Emergency Department. We'll utilize high-fidelity mannequins that breathe, talk, and can be examined and resuscitated.
