From the Danish Institute of Medical Simulation, Herlev University Hospital, Denmark.

The Danish Institute of Medical Simulation is a subdivision of the Department of Anesthesia and is primarily funded by Copenhagen County. To this date, the simulation-based national courses have taken place in this center in collaboration with trained facilitators coming from several hospitals and simulation units in Denmark; the National Board of Health funded this activity.

We now use a mixture of case-based learning, computer-based learning, practical skill trainers, full-scale simulation, role playing, and simulated relatives.
