This two-part workshop is aimed at participants from a wide variety of healthcare professions and healthcare related backgrounds, such as nurses, doctors, paramedics, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, operating department practitioners, midwives and assistant practitioners who have an interest in using simulation as a teaching and learning method.
Healthcare simulation may be defined as ‘an imitation of some real thing, state of affairs, or process for the practice of skills, problem solving, and judgment.’ (Rosen, 2008). Techniques used vary from the simple, such as part-trainers, to the complex, for example simulated patients/actors and high-tech human-patient simulators, but in all cases the value of simulation lies in allowing learners to develop and practice skills in an environment that is safe, both psychologically and for their ‘patients’. The purpose of this 2-part workshop is to introduce participants to the role of simulation in healthcare education and to enable them to develop competency in devising, facilitating and debriefing scenarios which will in turn allow their learners to develop clinical expertise and understanding.
