The annual program of clinical events, TeAM courses (Interactive Courses of Clinical Simulation) and CPR courses are an important part of the clinical training activity at Learning Health. The CPR courses are recognized and certified by the Portuguese Resuscitation Council (Conselho Português de Ressuscitação – CPR) and by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), presently including the courses of Adult Basic Life Support (Suporte Básico de Vida para Adultos – SBV), Adult Immediate Life Support (Suporte Imediato de Vida para Adultos – (SIV) and Adult Advanced Life Support (Suporte Avançado de Vida para Adultos – SAV).

 

SIMULATION

Medical simulation is today the gold standard in the training of students, professionals and healthcare teams. Medical simulation effectively promotes the dissemination of good practices and the optimization of clinical performance, allowing the incorporation of technological innovation in clinical practice without risk for patients and professionals.

The unfathomable value of human life and, consequently, of health professionals training, is the motivation for the creation of a major simulation center in the new area of Hospital da Luz Lisboa, to open in 2018.
