2015 CPD Workshops

Following the successful completion of the ‘Feedback and Debriefing in Simulation Based Education‘ workshop on the 25th March 2015, we are currently organising three further workshops to be delivered soon for all members of the NHS workforce.

  1. Human Factors in Simulation Based Education
  2. Peer Observation of Teaching (POT) Training
  3. Teamwork using Simulation

As with the ‘Feedback and Debriefing in Simulation Based Education’ workshop, there will be a limited number of funded places available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Dates for the workshops will be communicated in due course, after which applications will be accepted.


Feedback on the ‘Principles and Practice in Simulation’ module

“Dear Wesley and Martin,

I thought I would write to say an enormous thank you for a most enjoyable few days on the simulation module recently.  The group of candidates have been great together which must surely be regarded as a compliment to the faculty.

 I thought that the structure to the debrief module was excellent.   I found value in most if not all the components of the module.  Personally I think I have a greater understanding of the power of and the purpose of the debrief as a result of the opportunity to explore the different components of the debrief as laid out in the structure.  Particularly memorable components are exploring the understanding of aspects of feedback and the reflective practice”.

New Workshops for 2015

There will be a series of one day workshops available during this year which will cover the following topics for members of the NHS workforce:

  1. Feedback and Debriefing in Education (March 25th)
  2. Human Factors in Simulation Based Education
  3. Peer Observation of Teaching (POT) Training
  4. Team work using simulation

For all of these courses there will be a limited number of funded places. Dates for the workshops will be posted on this website.



Feedback & Debriefing Module MDM 149 (taught component)

The taught component of the F&D module was completed earlier this week with a good response and evaluation  from the particpants. Presentations for the Work Based Project will complete the module on March 12th.

The final stage in validation of the PG Cert will take place in March 2015.

Further modular dates for both simulation based modules will be posted on this site soon, and it is anticpated that late June will be the next oportunity to enrol on MDM 148 (Principles and Practice), and then again in November.

ASPiH 2014 (Nottingham)

Simulation activity across the hub was represented by following oral presentations at ASPiH this year, focussing upon “Changing Behaviours”;

  • Chris Bruce provided a synopsis of work completed so far by the QWRP team, ‘Using simulation to deliver an educational programme promoting multiprofessional team working’.
  • Martin Parry presented his Masters dissertation on ‘ Promoting exploratory discourse within post-simulation debriefs’ with its wider application to all forms of simulation
  • Rob Galloway (presented by E Stewart-Parker), ‘Developing non-technical skills through patient simulation; designing a cousre to improve patient safety’.
  • Amit Mishra presented ‘The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Children’s collaboration project’

Posters wthout presentations:

Natalie Farmer (BSMS student) and Rosie Pawley, ‘A service evaluation of simulation training in postgraduate and undergraudate medical education’.

Kevin Barrett, ‘Simulation in multidisciplinary environments: developments in clinical education’.
