Idrose, A., Adnan, W., Villa, G., and Abdullah, A. (2007). The Use of Classroom Training and Simulation in the Training of Medical Responders for Airport Disaster. Emergency Medicine Journal. 24(1): 7–11.
This articles describes the use of enhanced classroom training that included didactic lectures, simulation using a model of the airport, and video of a prior exercise to train clinicians, paramedics, assistant paramedics, and health attendants and drivers to respond to an airport disaster in a cost-effective and efficient way. The authors note that all groups achieved knowledge gain through the multi-modality, interprofessional training, with the non-medical participants improving the most from pre-test to post-test.
