A simulation exercise at Douglas College's David Lam campus Thursday morning brought together health sciences and paramedic students to enhance collaboration and communication between the professions.

In the first simulation at the Coquitlam campus, an "elderly woman" fell and was assisted by nursing students (far left and right) while they waited for a primary care paramedic student from the Justice Institute of BC.

Later that day, the schools were set to do another simulation, this one involving a man with a history of mental illness who is resisting going to the hospital to be treated for wounds and depression.
