Trauma, Teams and Tribes: Vic Brazil at DFTB18
Victoria Brazil is a senior staff specialist at the Gold Coast University Hospital. She is a world renowned expert in the role of simulation in medical education. We all think we know the story of Humpty, don’t we? It’s the age old tale of egg versus gravity that doesn’t end well for the egg*. But what if, Vic argues, the team sent to look after him had been trained, not just in trauma management in isolation, but as a team? Would things have fared any better? In her role as Medical Director of the Gold Coast Simulation Service she has pioneered the use of team based in-situ simulation to break down barriers to effective patient treatment. Watch her talk and see what you could bring to your department.
