Principles and Practice of Simulation; Student Feedback: November ’16

The Principles and Practice of Simulation module was successfully delivered again from 28th November – 2nd December 2016.

Quantitative and qualitative feedback from the students was extremely positive, matching the overwhelmingly positive feedback from previous iterations of the module in 2014 and 2015. A figure showing the responses (scored on a Likert scale) is shown below, along with some quotes from some of the students.

HEE KSS e-training for Trainers

At the recent HEE KSS Simulation Network meeting the availability of access to ETFT (e-training for trainers) modules was discussed.  It is planned to move the ETFT training modules to the e-LfH platform but a date for the move has not yet been confirmed.

In the meantime, the ETFT modules can still be accessed via the following link: http://www.etft.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=139&Itemid=73

Available modules include one on Clinical Simulation, accessible via this link: http://www.etft.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=123&Itemid=182

For more information, please contact Gillian Gilbert, Education Projects Officer (HEE KSS).

Peer Observation of Teaching Workshop

A second ‘Training for Peer Observation of Teaching‘ workshop took place on the 16th June 2016, with practitioners from a variety of backgrounds attending.

Those attending provided qualitative and quantitative feedback; a selection of the former are shown below.

“It was useful to look at different types of feedback which are appropriate for age/experience of learners.”

“Good coverage of the theory behind new models”

“Excellent small group work”

“I was really nervous about this; as the time went on I got more confident and gained more understanding”

Also shown below is a figure with the collated quantitative feedback scores, rated on a Likert Scale, for the sessions delivered during the day.

Feedback and Debriefing in Simulation: Student Feedback: May 2016

The Feedback and Debriefing in Simulation module was successfully delivered for the third time from 23rd – 25th May 2016.

Quantitative and qualitative feedback from the students was extremely positive, matching the overwhelmingly positive feedback from previous iterations of the module in 2014 and 2015. A figure showing the responses (scored on a Likert scale) is shown below, along with some quotes from some of the students.

“Great experience/insight into writing/planning a simulation, then seeing the potential holes/pitfalls when delivered/interpreted by others”
“Excellent opportunity to see Simulation in a different situation and explore opportunities this provides – very enjoyable”
“Good discussions in our group about the potential for our own reflection and peer observation and feedback”

‘The Use of Simulated Patients in Healthcare Education’ Workshop: 17/5/16

The ‘Use of Simulated Patients in Healthcare Education‘ Workshop took place on the 17th May 2016, with a large number practitioners from a variety of backgrounds attending. Becky Simpson, Managing Director of Playout Communications and Presentation Training Company, assisted in a well received day of learning.

Those attending provided qualitative and quantitative feedback; a selection of the former are shown below.

“Really helpful tips on how best to approach simulation and how to make it beneficial for individual learners”
“The emphasis on the benefits of using simulated patients, for example, addressing the multi-level learning ambitions of learners was excellent”
“Really useful to gain understanding of how the OSCE process works with training of simulated patients and how to keep this consistent and reliable”
“Brilliant afternoon and great ideas to take back to practice”

Also shown below is a figure with the collated quantitative feedback scores, rated on a Likert Scale, for the sessions delivered during the day.

Principles and Practice of Simulation Student Feedback: Apr ’16

The Principles and Practice of Simulation module was successfully delivered for the third time from 25th – 29th April 2016.

Quantitative and qualitative feedback from the students was extremely positive, matching the overwhelmingly positive feedback from previous iterations of the module in 2014 and 2015. A figure showing the responses (scored on a Likert scale) is shown below, along with some quotes from some of the students.

“Emphasised some of the challenges we may face in debrief and some practical solutions/strategies to use”
“I enjoyed the opportunity to create and run a simulation and encounter challenges with learning outcomes and ensuring candidates achieve them”
“Allowed us to explore simulation in relation to other situations e.g. assessment and preparing a clinical setting”

Funding for modules on PG Cert in Simulation in Clinical Practice

The Sussex Simulation Hub has received confirmation of extended funding for 20 places on the Principles & Practice of Simulation and Feedback & Debriefing in Simulation modules from HE KSS.

As we are now finalising the timetable for the next delivery of the Principles and Practice of Simulation module from 25th – 29th April, we can now accept applications for the funded spaces reserved on the module.

Principles & Practice of Simulation:
25th – 29th April 2016
Feedback & Debriefing in Simulation:

23rd – 25th May & 12th July 2016

For more information regarding the PG Cert and modules and to apply for the modules, visit the PG Cert webpage here, or contact Andrew Collins.

Peer Observation of Teaching Workshop

The ‘Training for Peer Observation of Teaching‘ Workshop took place on the 8th December 2015 with practitioners from a variety of backgrounds attending.

Those attending provided qualitative and quantitative feedback; a selection of the former are shown below.

“Good opportunity to reflect on a personal level re what/why we do POT”

“The chosen videos were excellent – good opportunities to look at skills/barriers to peer review”

“Enjoyed this, though I’m not normally fond of role play. I gained a lot from discussion within our small group”

“Will be taking this back to our education team to freshen up our debriefing in simulation training”

Also shown below is a figure with the collated quantitative feedback scores, rated on a Likert Scale, for the sessions delivered during the day.
