Document Type



Emergency Medicine (East Africa)


One of the major obstacles to delivering effective emergency care in developing countries is a lack of adequate training. Facility-oriented, simulation-based emergency care training programs developed locally present an opportunity to improve the quality of emergency care in low- and middle-income countries. We describe the development and implementation of the emergency care course in Kenya and the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, challenges, and recommendations for locally developed facility-oriented simulation-based emergency care training.
