Human Factors Workshop

Following the successful delivery of the Feedback and Debriefing workshop in March, we are running another one-day workshop for all members of the NHS workforce and those with an interest in Postgraduate education focusing on ‘Human Factors in Simulation Based Education’, and how to address them in healthcare education.

The workshop will be held at Mayfield House, University of Brighton on the 1st July 2015, 9.15am – 4.30pm. Limited funded places on the course (usually costing £130) are currently available.

If you would like to book a place on the workshop, or if you have any questions, please contact Andrew Collins.

PG Cert validation progress

Good news!

The PG Cert in Simulation in Clinical Practice has gained Stage 2 approval from the validation board at the university. This means that the course now one final stage to go through, ‘conjoined validation’, prior to gaining full PG Cert status. This is due to take place over the summer of 2015 and is expected to be completed without any issues. Following this, the course will be due to officially run as a full PG Cert from September 2015.
