2a Setmana de la Simulació a Vall d'Hebron

2nd Simulation Week at Vall d'Hebron

From April 24 to 28, 2023 the 2nd Simulation Week was held at Vall d'Hebron under the slogan "Simulation everywhere".

Different virtual and face-to-face activities take place at the Vall d'Hebron Advanced Clinical Simulation Center, located on the 5th floor of the Traumatology, Rehabilitation, and Burns Hospital.

Presentation by Dr. José María Quintillá

Dr. José María Quintillá, pediatrician expert in Clinical Simulation and Pediatric Emergencies at Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, leads the plenary session of the Workshop The challenges of simulation in Catalonia.

Dr. Quintillá raises four challenges for those attending the Worshop to work on in groups:

  • Access to the simulation
  • Construction of simulation teams
  • Integration in the curriculum
  • Impact measurement


The SIMOONS League is a virtual competition that takes place during the 2nd Simulation Week. Teams from different countries participate through the serious game SIMOONS.

SIMOONS (Serious game for online training with health simulation) is a platform that allows remote training of multidisciplinary teams for patient care in various clinical scenarios.

10 centers from different countries participate.

The 10 teams are divided into two groups that compete during the week of April 24, with the winners of each group reaching the final on Friday, April 28. That is, the first finalist comes out of Group A and the second finalist comes out of Group B.

The objective of the team simulation sessions is to work on non-technical skills, such as communication, leadership, teamwork, situational awareness and decision-making through the SIMOONS serious game.

The format of the team simulation sessions is completely online.

The performance of the teams during the simulations is evaluated through a rubric carried out by a facilitator from the Simulation Center, who is an external observer of the sessions. The TEAMS scale is used to rate non-technical skills during the simulations.

Yes, there are extra points for the most original video, the video with the most "likes" on Twitter and also extra points for each participant who does the SIMOONS pilot test.

The winning team receive a 1-month license for 1 SIMOONS module and free enrollment in the SIMOONS Trainer online course for all team members.

Simulation as a fundamental training tool

We provide training so that simulation becomes a fundamental teaching methodology for learning with results and impact on health.

We are capable of creating simulations adapted to any educational objective, with the help of professionals trained for this purpose, using a multitude of tools such as the latest generation simulators, serious games, or virtual reality.
