Emergo Train System - a tool in scientific studies
Models and simulations can support experimental research on disaster medcial respons management, human factors and descition making. Structured data collection from simulation exercises can provide quantative and qualitative results that allows comparison.

This paper discusses the relation of good staff work and good management. In an educational setting where Emergo Train System was used we tested the hypothesis the good staff procedure skills lead too good decision making

In this paper we demonstrated the possibility to use patient outcome as a final measure of good decision making in disaster management. A prerequisite is that the educational tool used makes this possible. The Emergo Train System version 2 makes this way of evaluation possible.

In this paper we demonstrate that if you introduce the same victim bank into a computer simulation system this will make it possible to run the same scenario in an optimal environment and compare results to the results from an Emergo train Simulation Exercise.

In this paper we present results from a study of staff procedure skills in an educational setting. Of course the tool used in the simulation exercises was Emergo Train System

This is a pilot-study that demonstrates the possibility to use performance indicators as an outcome when training hospital management groups; providing a suitable educational system is used. In this case this was the Emergo Train System
