Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


Emergency in the Sim Ward is a creative narrative based on actual clinical re-enactments and interviews with real life anaesthetists talking about their reactions and thought processes in dealing with emergencies in an operating theatre.

It's a unique insight made possible through the medium of simulation—a process whereby clinicians review their skills and medical protocols, simulating real life emergencies with the use of mannequins and, occasionally, live actors.

The simulation ward is a place where fiction and real life collide. The patient may not be real but the emotions are.

Through these simulations we are transported into the stressful environment of an emergency ward, where the internal doubts and anxieties facing clinicians run wild.

Their candid reflections provide insight into the enormous dedication and tenacity required to do the work they do.

It's not easy work, and sometimes things do go wrong...
