Background: New action-based methods are needed in continuing professional development of emergency staff. The article describes simulation-based education in continuing professional development of emergency care staff, which needs to revise and update their advanced resuscitation skills and practise inter-professional team work to better manage acute and critical incidents. Methods: The focus is on the factors that need to be considered when planning simulation pedagogy for mature learners. The manuscript is a case report. Conclusion: Simulation-based education is considered good and effective for experienced participants as they are prepared to go profoundly and holistically into a subject area and to combine action-based learning and reflection. Participants can safely practise critical events, learning from other experienced professionals.
