This inter-professional course utilises fully-immersive high-fidelity simulation to enhance essential skills for healthcare staff working across acute and community care settings. It provides participants the opportunity to practise, in a safe learning environment, the skills required to assess and safely care for the acutely deteriorating adult patient presenting with common and challenging clinical scenarios.

Through a combination of structured debriefing and expert advice, participants can reflect on how Human Factors can impact on patient safety.


  • To increase the confidence of health professionals in recognising and managing acutely unwell adults
  • To introduce inter-personal and cognitive Human Factor skills, including care and compassion, required to perform effectively in complex clinical situations
