Simulation

The Centre for Clinical Practice offers a high- fidelity patient simulation facility. The main emphasis of simulation is to provide clinical staff with training in non-technical skills. The courses focus on understanding human factors such as communication, delegation, prioritisation and team work. We have designated simulation and seminar rooms linked through a high-tech AV system as well as a range of adult, paediatric and neonatal manikins.

The benefits of simulation based training include:

  • No risk to patients – clinicians practice on the purpose built manikins rather than on patients
  • Improved patient care - trainees can practice and improve their skills in a safe environment so they feel competent when interacting with real patients
  • Optimised learning experiences – candidates can train at convenient times and also experience rare cases through planned simulation sessions, rather than ad-hoc exposure to varying patient cases

The Simulation centre provides a multitude of patient safety focussed training courses to our Trust staff and external professionals from around the UK in conjunction with the London Deanery. We are also able to offer bespoke courses to meet specific training needs.
