Comprehensive Rural Intensive Simulation & Procedures (CRISP)
The CRISP course is a two-day, high-acuity, high volume critical care training simulation program, designed to allow physicians and other emergency practitioners to acquire, review, and practice their skills in essential life-saving procedures.
The course travels to rural communities and provides a day of procedure training, procedural skills development and ‘actuation’, i.e. putting skills into action, followed by a day of in situ simulation training led by a team of experienced faculty. Participants are placed in interprofessional learning teams to encourage teamwork and communication. The main objective of the course is to bring high-quality simulation and procedural training to rural hospitals and provide an opportunity for emergency teams to practice management of infrequently encountered emergent scenarios.
Target audience: physicians, nurses and other practitioners who participate in patient care in a rural hospital.
