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.

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?

Watch her talk and see what you could bring to your department.
