CORE TRAININGS

Our Care Settings

TRAUMA

Trauma training simulations are set in the Emergency Department. The patient journey begins with a pre-hospital call from ambulance staff and then the arrival of a complex trauma patient to the ED setting. The scenarios include a full ED team approach with involvement of ED, trauma call, radiology, laboratory and blood bank staff.

RADIOLOGY

Radiology training simulations are based in several locations: CT, interventional radiology, CTCA, and post-procedure areas. The scenarios are based on a deteriorating patient in the radiology setting and involve all radiology staff – nurses, radiology technicians, radiologists, and emergency management teams like PAR teams who are activated to manage critical situations in radiology

OPERATING ROOM

Operating room training simulations involve multidisciplinary teams. They work with realistic scenarios, facilitated debriefing, and a focus on communication techniques to improve patient outcomes. The cases can be adult or paediatric and cover a range of specialties: orthopaedic, general, ORL/ENT, plastics, and urology.

PACU

PACU training simulations are set in the post-operative environment. Management of post-operative patients can be dynamic and challenging with unexpected events, so the scenarios require management of the deteriorating patient with either significant events or insidious deterioration. The training focuses on concise handovers, ISBAR and multidisciplinary interactions.

OBS / GYN

Obstetrics and Gynaecology training simulations are set in the operating room and involve life-threatening obstetric and gynaecological scenarios. Obstetric emergency scenarios involve full OR obstetric teams including anaesthesiologists, obstetricians, paediatricians and midwives. Gynaecology scenarios focus on a deteriorating patient with known or unexpected complications.
