The longitudinal research study was to consist of two Phases. Phase one 12 months consisted of an expert Interdisciplinary panel Registered Nurses, Biologists, chemists, mathematics, neurologist and Simulation expert. This phase included training about TBI for the research team and the development of TBI scenarios for the high fidelity Trauma Simulator, and an educational intervention to evaluate the efficacy of the human simulation training for military medics in battlefield situations. The expert panel in collaboration with the Simulation expert developed TBI battlefield scenarios that were piloted prior to the collection of data from study participants. The training for the medics about assessment and management of TBI based on the educational intervention and simulation training was to be implemented during Phase 2 of the research study. Phase 2 12 months of the research study was to collect data about the medics ability to retain and demonstrate acquisition of knowledge and skills to be able to assess manifestations of TBI and identify a plan of care. The data collected would provide information about the medics efficacy of assessment and management of care for TBI in the battlefield.
