Background: New methods are needed in continuing professional development of emergency staff. The article describes simulation-based teaching in continuing professional development of emergency care staff, who wants to revise and update their advanced resuscitation skills and practise inter-professional team work to better manage 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. A case presentation from Finland is provided.
Conclusion: Simulation-based learning is found to suitable for experienced participants as they are prepared to go profoundly and holistically into a subject area and to combine action-based learning, critical enquiry and reflection. Participants can safely practise rare and critical events, learning from other experienced professionals. They can even become co-developers of education, as their experience and tacit knowledge can be incorporated into training programmes.
