Communication and interaction between students and the various health professionals involved in emergencies and resuscitation care is one of the strategic pillars of health science education in general and midwifery education in particular.

This approach aimed at increasing awareness of one's own responsibility and that of team member, as it contribute to endurance and development of team management skills in emergency care situations related to resuscitation of pregnant patients in maternity units. 19 health science students future "midwives" were involved in the study which was conducted from 20 February to 20 March 2023 at the Higher Institute of Nursing Professions and Health Techniques of Tetouan in Morocco. The results showed that the students were very satisfied with the effectiveness of the role-playing simulation training in improving their professional skills, and feel that they could take on their future function with more ease. Moreover, such a process seems to motivate students to learn and provide them with an individualized approach.
