The School of Paediatrics Simulation Training programme for 2015 has started with several courses already completed. Training this year is for ST1 and ST3 trainees and is mandatory. Do you know the dates of your training days?
The programme is for ST3 trainees preparing for the role of being a middle-grade doctor, and for ST1 trainees starting their posts in the Paediatric multi-professional team. This is the fifth year of running the programme which has received very good feedback, and we have used the feedback to modify and improve the programme.
The Full Immersion days are for ST1 and ST3 trainees, as well as Paediatric nurses. These days consist of learning about human factors training, as well as taking part in several simulated scenarios working as a multi-professional paediatric team. The faculty working with you are expert simulation faculty and candidates from the Faculty Development Programme. All debriefing is undertaken in a safe environment to maximise the benefits gained through this training day.
The Part-task/Communication training days are for ST3 trainees. These days are divided into two – half the day being spent becoming more comfortable and familiar with practical procedures (for example airway management), and the other half of the day in becoming more familiar with communicating challenging news to actors role-playing parents. Once again, the faculty working with you are expert simulation faculty and candidates from the Faculty Development Programme. All debriefing is undertaken in a safe environment to maximise the benefits gained through this training day.
Please see the attached documents with information on training days and dates, and please book onto courses. Trainees in NCNEL have been allocated onto courses. Please get in touch with Mehrengise Cooper if you have any problems booking onto a course – email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please come prepared for these days with all knowledge that you have – for example APLS and NLS.
Please make sure you complete our evaluation documents as all feedback is very important to us.
