The ATACC group take us through the evolution of human patient simulation. How can clinicians experience the emotional attachment that comes with treating a human patient, when practicing procedures on rubber human simulators? The team discuss some of the latest developments in human patient simulation and how to combat these challenges.

Halden Hutchinson-Bazely

Halden is an anaesthetist and pre hospital doctor in the UK, and a course director for the ATACC Course. He is really interested in medical education which not only delivers information, but also the tools to be able to use that information under the pressure of when it’s really needed. He is fascinated by physiology at the extremes of survival: life threatening bleeding, traumatic low output states, and medical cardiac arrest. When he has given up trying to understand that lot, he goes kitesurfing instead!
