The ESAIC Simulation Committee is active in building bridges, not only with other committees within the ESAIC but also between centres all over Europe. We are currently conducting the first survey to establish the status of simulation training across Europe. We have also started running Simulation Masterclasses which form a valuable connection with our Patient Safety and Quality Committee as the focus is on running scenarios based on recommendations found in the Helsinki Declaration on Patient Safety in Anaesthesiology.
