Before the wave of COVID-19 forced many changes, Dr Fahy and the team would perform weekly simulation exercises as part of the Emergency Medicine registrar education programme. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic there has been alterations to the previous schedule and many of these simulations have been halted for the time being.
Dr Fahy and the team have also put on more ad hoc multi-disciplinary insitu simulation exercises within the ED, usually to address specific processes needs or as a means of team building through activity and communication.
When Dr Fahy is not working to save lives in the ED, he keeps himself very busy looking after two small boys and a dog.
