Simulation


Overview


The Centre’s facilities include a Simulation Suite and a Clinical Skills Lab specifically designed for Undergraduate Medical Students.
The extensive range of high functioning manikins includes:
  • SimMan® 3G
  • SimJunior®
  • SimMom®
  • SimNewB®
  • SimBodies®
Additionally we can increase the fidelity of the simulation experience with the use of simulated patients to allow a more realistic interaction in some scenarios.
Sessions can take place within the Suite, designed to mirror a generic clinical space, or ‘in situ’ where simulation is physically integrated into the real clinical environment. The audio and visual recording system provides instant feedback capabilities assisting and enhancing the debriefing, which is an essential part of the simulation experience.
The Simulation team deliver a variety of courses with the assistance of clinical experts including:
  • Multi-Professional Simulation programme (MPS)
  • Critical Care Transfer days
  • Medical/ Nursing student simulation
  • Clinical Speciality days
  • Deteriorating Patient simulation
The Clinical Skills Lab is situated at the entrance to the library and is ideal for small group skills teaching or as an Independent Learning Environment (ILE). This allows learners to practice skills on part task simulators prior to clinical practice. It can be booked for sessions or, if free, used as an ILE.
There are many part task simulators available for multi-disciplinary staff to use in their personal development, download the equipment form below to see our extensive list of part task trainers.
To book simulation sessions or the skills lab, please email simulation team and a member of the team will get back to you to confirm the booking.
