Simulation services (RD&E Sim)
We are the Hospitals Simulation (Sim) team. We are responsible for delivering simulation-based education on the wards, Simulation centre (in the RILD) and in the community, using smart manikins and simulated patients (actors).
We run scenarios for emergency, rare and difficult scenarios and then have a discussion afterwards about what we can learn from them. This means that if these events do occur, the training will allow the team or individual, to learn from prior experience and perform better.
Teams that train together work better together, and our core aims are to improve patient safety, multidisciplinary working, knowledge and skills. Simulation training is for everyone involved in healthcare and we all learn from each other.
