Preparing for the Worst
This photo gallery shows the many ways in which students can use simulation to train for responding to a disaster or terrorist event.
Incapacitated Patient Decontamination
Simulation allows teams to practice skills that are infrequently used or used in unfamiliar environments. Here, a team of prehospital providers practices incapacitated patient decontamination. Photo Geoffrey T. Miller/ University of Miami Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education
Pivotal Decision is a game used by the Michael S. Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education that allows learners to practice and assess their ability to conduct mass-casualty triage at a disaster incident. Image Geoffrey T.

Early learning of skills is best accomplished in isolated task training exercises using standardized checklists, deliberate and repetitive practice, and feedback. Here, learners practice IV cannulation in the personal protective equipment (PPE) environment. Photo Geoffrey T. Miller, EMT-P/ University of Miami Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education
Structural Collapse Care
The design and development phases of the ADDIE model focus on providing the proper amount of fidelity to the given simulation, which can involve either an individual or a team. Here, an Army medic provides care to a simulator at a structural collapse. Photo Paul E. Phrampus, MD
