Results: After simulation based training inter-professional teams were able to safely provide sedation for colonoscopy, and to enhance teamwork for early detection and goal-directed treatment of sepsis in the surgical ward. Conclusion: Clinical simulation provides a safe environment to reorganize care and train professionals to work in teams.
