This module introduces the ABCDE-system, specific to severe burns treatment. This method is meant to investigate in a systematic way if an acute sick or injured patient has got endangered or disturbed vital functions that need immediate intervention.
The abcdeSIM module includes 3 items:
- E-learning: here we go through all the parts of the ABCDE step by step.
- Knowledge test: After this module you get a knowledge test. After you have achieved a sufficient score on the knowledge test, you get access to the ABCDE simulation game (the icon will then become visible).
- AbcdeSIM game: Here you must pass both scenarios with a sufficient result. You can always return to the game to regularly practice your ABCDE skills in the virtual EMERGENCY ROOM of abcdeSIM.
AbcdeSIM is an e-learning and ‘serious game’ in one! The e-learning allows you to optimize your ABCDE-knowledge and to put this knowledge into practice through a lifelike digital game.
Virtual emergency environment:
Through the e-learning you will learn all about the ABCDE-method. You can then put this knowledge into practice in a virtual emergency environment. The e-learning is specifically intended for burn care by virtually recreating a practice situation with a burn patient (both children and adults). Here you play 2 scenarios with a different case. You need to pass the scenarios successfully for your accreditation. The game also includes a comprehensive tutorial. In short, train your skills with life-like patients in this medical ‘serious game.’
To use the e-learning abcdeSIM, you need a computer with internet and sound, with a browser (Chrome, Firefox or Edge). Please note that abcdeSIM cannot be played on a tablet like an iPad.
