Simulation is an effective method to train resuscitation teams in the management of crisis scenarios and has the potential to improve team performance in the areas of communication, teamwork, and leadership.1 The benefits of simulation training and simulation in situ for realistic training has enormous benefits for decreasing mortality, increasing patient safety, and enforcing skills needed for resuscitation efforts. Formal inter-professional team training for Basic Life Support (BLS) providers must demonstrate the benefits of an inter-professional team approach to improve patient outcomes. Simulation, whether at a fixed location or in situ, affords an inter-professional education setting that directly resembles real clinical conditions and allows opportunities for the final assessment of participants.1
