I am a Paediatric Intensive Care Consultant at the Evelina London Children’s Hospital and one of the lead consultants for the South Thames Retrieval Service (STRS). The STRS developed and delivered a bespoke in-situ multi-disciplinary simulation programme for the South Thames region. This has been highly successful with over 2000 people in the region attending these training sessions. I am one of the Training Programme Directors for paediatrics (simulation lead) for HESL and have developed curriculum and team-based training programmes for this region. I run the critical care module of the advanced paediatric MSC for King’s College London. I  have delivered and assisted in the development of the first university accredited Retrieval Nurse Practitioner Programme in the UK.

He graduated from St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London Medical School and trained in general internal medicine, nephrology and critical care throughout the South East of England. Dr Slack spent a year at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre, Toronto, Canada as a critcal care fellow and delivered simulation training in the Sunnybrook Canadian Simulation centre to new junior doctors (residents).

Dr Slack’s interests outside of medicine include kite surfing, golf, hockey and spending time with his two children.

Anne Collett is a Consultant Physician in Respiratory and General Internal Medicine. She completed her specialist training in South East Thames and has been back at Guy’s and St Thomas’ since 2009. She has a longstanding interest in education and training and spent a year as an education fellow based at the Royal College of Physicians. She has a masters in medical education and is now training programme director for Respiratory medicine across South London. Anne first started working with the SaIL Centre in 2011 and is excited to be part of the new consultant faculty.

Tom is a Respiratory and General Medical Trainee and is currently a simulation fellow at the SaIL Centre. He has been involved in various forms of medical education since he was a student, and began working in simulation in 2011 in his spare time.

While he continues to teach in a variety of locations and modalities he is currently working as a Research Fellow, based at King’s College London Learning Institute, exploring new ways of evaluation the impact of simulation on healthcare workers. When all is said and done however, teaching is the name of the game for him and so he still does regular debrief sessions as one of us in the SaIL centre.

He has also commenced an MA in Clinical Education at KCL and in what remains of his spare time he plays field hockey in goal, enjoys live music, summer night city entertainment and tries to find new excuses to wear his Lederhosen in the Waterloo area.

Outline:

Sepsis is a major cause of mortality and morbidity and a large consumer of resources in the NHS. The management of sepsis is driven by international evidence and consensus-based guidelines. Unfortunately, the delivery of care to patients diagnosed with sepsis often fails to meet the targets specified by these guidelines, which leads to negative consequences for both the patient and the organisation.

“The Sepsis 6″ is an intervention designed to improve the immediate management of septic patients by guiding staff through the initial steps in the goal-directed management of sepsis. It has been shown to improve the outcomes of patients with sepsis. Our programme is designed to increase the awareness of the Sepsis 6, to educate about sepsis and to explore scenarios in which the recognition and management of sepsis may be complicated.

Attendees:

  • Band 5+ Nurses
  • Junior Doctors – FY1 and FY2
  • SpR’s 1-6
  • Clinical Consultants
  • Allied Health Professionals

Dates:

  • To be announced

Costs:

  • Although this course is centrally funded, making it free for you to attend, you may be charged if you book a place but do not attend on the day.
