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.  

ETS includes process indicators and outcome indicators. After an exercise the results of process indicators for management can be related to the end result of patient outcome.

This is a publication in an open-access journal where results from all Emergo Train System Senior instructor courses that have been conducted since 2005 are presented; that is since version 2 was introduced.

Improved staff procedure skills lead to improved management skills, a study in an educational setting 2008
A. Rüter, MD, PhD, Tore Vikström, MD, PhD
Accepted Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. Planned for publication 2009:29(4)
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

Management of resources at major incidents and disasters in relation to patient outcome: a pilot study of an educational model
Heléne Nilsson, Anders Rüter
European Journal of Emergency Medicine 2008;15:162-165
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.

Computer simulation as a tool for testing disaster preparedness
Anders Rüter MD, Thore Wikström MD, PhD.
Scand J Resuc Emerg Med. 2006;14:33-35
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.

Staff procedure skills in management groups during exercise in disaster medicine
Anders Rüter MD, Per Örtenwall MD PhD, Tore Vikström MD PhD.
Prehospital Disaster Medicine 2007;22:318-21
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

Performance indicators as quality control for testing and evaluating hospital management groups: A pilote study
Anders Rüter MD, Heléne Nilsson RN, Tore Vikström MD PhD.
Prehospital and Disaster Medicine 2006(21)6
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



About ETS
