Preparation of Special Operations Forces (SOF) Medics as first responders for the battle space and austere environments is critical to optimize survival and quality of life for our Operators who may sustain serious and complex wounding patterns and illnesses. In the absence of constant clinical exposure for these medics, it is necessary to maximize all available training opportunities. The incorporation of scenario-based training helps weave together teamwork and the ability to practice… 

Simulating a self-inflicted facial gunshot wound with moulage to improve perceived realism, immersion, and learning in simulation-based airway management training

This work suggests that the simulated facial gunshot wound contributed to perceived scenario immersion and enhancement of the learning experience, supporting existing literature that suggests moulage is a valuable tool in healthcare simulation.

How does moulage contribute to medical students’ perceived engagement in simulation? A mixed-methods pilot study

Although the slower performance in the HighAuth group did not have impact on simulated treatment outcomes, highly authentic moulage may be a stronger predictor of performance.

Quality of Life and Anxiety in Military Personnel

Quality of life decreased, while anxiety increased, with increasing age of the military personnel, and learning techniques to easily overcome everyday stress would reduced anxiety and improve the quality of life in military personnel of the Serbian Armed Forces.

Rapid Application Temporary Tattoos for Medical Moulage: From Development to Testing and Commercialization

Military medical education and training often utilize theatrical makeup, or moulage, to simulate injuries or pathologies. Traditional methods of moulage application are incredibly realistic when



Evaluation of high-fidelity simulation training in radiation oncology using an outcomes logic model

High-fidelity simulation training is feasible and effective in a radiation oncology context, however, such educational activities require significant resources, including personnel and equipment.

The utility of simulation in medical education: what is the evidence?

Multiple studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of simulation in the teaching of basic science and clinical knowledge, procedural skills, teamwork, and communication as well as assessment at the undergraduate and graduate medical education levels.

Procedural skills practice and training needs of doctors, nurses, midwives and paramedics in rural Victoria

Insight is provided into the clinical application of procedural skills for clinicians comprising a relatively large professional population within a defined geographical region in rural Victoria, as well as attitudes to skills maintenance and competency.

Lessons for continuing medical education from simulation research in undergraduate and graduate medical education: effectiveness of continuing medical education: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Educational Guidelines.

This article reviews and evaluates evidence from studies on simulation technology in undergraduate and graduate medical education and addresses its implications for continuing medical education (CME).

Feasibility of scenario-based simulation training versus traditional workshops in continuing medical education: a randomized controlled trial

The use of simulation-based training was not associated with benefits in knowledge acquisition, knowledge retention, or comfort in patient assessment, but it was associated with superior outcomes incomfort in patient management, but this benefit may be short-lived.

Mannequin or standardized patient: participants' assessment of two training modalities in trauma team simulation

Trauma team training using simulation has become an educational compensation for a low number of severe trauma patients in 49 of Norway's 50 trauma hospitals, but participants' assessment of the outcome of team training seems independent of the simulation modality.
