The IWK Emergency Department (ED) has been running daily COVID-19 simulation since March 12.

Our focus is to review current procedures, challenge them, test them and make endless improvements.

We know that with repetitive practice we can improve our setting, our process and boost our confidence.

The simulation team together with the ED clinical leaders ensures that at the end of each session we make recommendations to improve the process and implement the changes.

We go through this every day, sometimes at night, weekdays, weekends and holidays – every, single, day.
