Dexeus Women participates in the 2nd Catalan Week of Simulation in Obstetrics: Uniting Innovation, Practice, and Excellence

From the 13th to the 16th of December 2023, the second edition of the Catalan Week of Simulation was held. This event, emblematic in its focus on clinical safety, is distinguished by the use of simulation as a fundamental tool for medical training and preparation.

Focus on Collaboration and Excellence: Various hospitals across the Catalan geography have coordinated to execute this event. In all centres (Hospital Universitari Dexeus, Hospital del Mar, Hospital de Sant Pau, Hospital Germans Trias i Pujol, Hospital Arnau de Vilanova, Hospital Joan XXIII, Hospital de Santa Caterina i Hospital de Palamós) sessions, workshops, and courses on obstetric simulation were conducted.

Innovation at Dexeus Women: Our Dexeus Simulation team (Dr. Nimet Caner, Dr. Marta Claramonte, Dr. Martí Cantallops), under the leadership of Dr Pilar Prats (R&D in Clinical Obstetrics of the Obstetrics Service), organised three prominent activities:

  • Key Topics: Critical aspects such as ‘Maternal Morbidity and Mortality in Spain’ and ‘Clinical Simulation’ .
  • Renowned Experts: Featuring speakers like Jordi Castillo PhD, , founding member of the Spanish Society for Clinical Simulation and Patient Safety and professor at the UIC, and Dr Oscar Martínez-Pérez, president of the GESO and professor at the Catholic University of Murcia.
  • Inclusive Format: A face-to-face day available in an online format, facilitating global participation which attracted over 150 participants from Catalonia, Spain, Portugal, and South America.
  • Accreditation as Continued Medical Education: The activity accredited with 0.4 credits.
