A comprehensive range of simulation education is available to health professionals including:
Rapid refreshers of skills and equipment.
Scenarios which allow teams to practice clinical skills, follow process, guidelines and algorithms in clinical care.
Crisis Resource Management (CRM): a fully immersive team workshop combining the use of lifelike manikins and complex clinical scenarios to practice the non-clinical skills or human factors required to deliver best care.
Environmental simulation to trial or test new systems or changes to clinical work places.
The Douglas Starship Simulation Programme supports health professionals to advance their simulation skills through a range of train the trainers' workshops. A standardised, organisational methodology of simulation education provides familiarity for learners across child health.
Simulation training includes:
Introduction to simulation: for educators new to simulation education.
Simulation technician: for educators learning to operate computerised manikins.
Simulation faculty development: for educators who will be delivering CRM workshops.
Debriefing refresher: for simulation faculty who wish to practice debriefing.
Simulation and team training has shown to improve outcomes, patient safety and teamwork at Starship.
