COVID-19 has caused all manner of problems to educators working in clinical training, particularly in areas concerning patient manage-ment. Prior to lockdown, a large face-to-face patient management simulation programme for more than 1000 undergraduate clinical students had been implemented in New Zealand. The value of the programme was the interactive and engaged learning that occurred about core skills such as communication, prioritisation and working in teams. How could we meet the same learning outcomes as before? As a way to reproduce that value in an online asynchronous envi-ronment, we decided to use videos that we had previously made of simulation scenarios and films of real-life accidents
