Who is the course suitable for?

We are committed to the ethos and future of Simulation training within the Trust and continue to offer this course. We welcome expressions of interest from ALL clinical staff who might like to be a part of this evolving and exciting future of medical education. Participants will gain experience in the organisation, design and implementation of Simulation Based Education (SBE). This will enable them to participate as faculty for existing courses in addition to further course development. Following the course there is an opportunity for guest as part of further faculty development on courses which we run in the Clinical Simulation Centre.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course learners will be able to:

Discuss the benefits and limitations of Simulation as a mode of teaching including how to decide on the fidelity necessary to deliver the learning outcomes

Define effective learning objectives and subsequently design a Simulation scenario to deliver on those objectives

Set up and run a Laerdal mannequin effectively and have an understanding of the SMOTS AV system to optimise learner experiences

Demonstrate the approach to the structured debrief

'I have to compliment everyone on their pleasant persona and their expertise and knowledge. By the end of the 5 days, I did not feel as though I had been in a hospital ward and was very relaxed.'
