Bank, I. and Khalil, E. (2016). Are Pediatric Emergency Physicians More Knowledgeable and Confident to Respond to a Pediatric Disaster After an Experiential Learning Experience? (Abstract only.) Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. 31(5):551-556.
Pediatric emergency medicine physicians, and critical care and pediatric surgery residents, participated in a simulation-based workshop to increase their knowledge and confidence to respond to a disaster involving children. Program evaluations indicated an increase in physicians’ perceived preparedness for pediatric disaster response; this confidence persisted 6 months post-training.
