120 Journal Club Monthly Podcast January 2021

Welcome back to Simulcast Journal Club for 2021.  

This month Ben and Vic review 3 papers of interest – more on COVID sim, but this time involving healthcare consumer engagement, a description of Peer assisted learning in medical student simulation , and a systematic review of simulated based team training in EM and acute case.  We also invited Eve Purdy along for some comments on the last of those.
