The Technical Commission for Simulation Support (CTSS) is a multidisciplinary commission with representatives from all three hospitals (the General Hospital, the Children's and Women's Hospital and the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital), and it has the following aims: 

  • To develop simulation-based skills-training programmes. 
  • To define quality standards for simulation activities and ensure they are complied with.
  • To evaluate and supervise simulation-related initiatives, as well as provide support for them. 
  • To analyse the impact of simulated actions on healthcare quality and patient safety.

We currently have a total of 80 simulation leaders from the hospital’s various healthcare areas, who are ambassadors for the use of simulations. In addition, we have 100 professionals who are trained as instructors for the provision of simulation-based training at Vall d’Hebron Hospital.

Who is it aimed at? 

Oriented to the continuous training of health professionals and integrated into the training itinerary of residents.
