Simulation success stories

Dublin Fire Brigade paramedic students are hugely appreciative of the opportunity to experience assessing and treating responsive patients in a realistic and safe environment at RCSI. It allows them to put what they have learned into perspective and to experience how their interventions may improve the health of patients, thereby helping them appreciate the importance of their role.
