Advanced Simulation Training

Mandatory Advanced Simulation Training for East Midlands Foundation Programme Doctors

  • The simulation training days for Foundation Programme doctors are designed around the care of the acutely ill patient and aims to provide a safe learning environment in which to experience a series of simulated clinical challenges designed:
  • To consider individual, team, and organisational factors that might enhance or impede optimal patient care in the ward setting
  • To raise your awareness of roles and responsibilities, skills and contributions of other members of the multi-professional team
  • To consider how relevant national or local policies and procedures contribute to risk management and patient safety where you work

We aim to make these days multi-professional,  providing an opportunity for trainees, nurses and pre-registration pharmacists to approach clinical scenarios in a safe learning environment, with consideration of the non-technical skills required for safe, efficient and professional practice. A debrief occurs after each scenario which supports development of trainees by considering both the technical components of the simulation and the role of human factors in the performance of individual.

The F1 courses take place between February – June
