Sepsis is a major cause of mortality and morbidity within 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.

Outline

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.

Who is this course for?

  • Band 5+ Nurses
  • Junior Doctors FY1 – FY2
  • ST1-8
  • Allied Health Professionals
  • Clinical Consultants
  • HCA’s

Dates:

Outline:

A comprehensive two-day programme created specifically for staff with a role in clinical education and training who wish to enhance their teaching skills in simulation-based education. It forms the start of the faculty development programme at SaIL. The programme provides an interactive mix of theory and practical application of simulation, informed by educational research and best practice.

This course is for staff and teams interested in understanding more about how simulation-based learning interventions can enhance patient safety and team working in clinical settings and the simulation centre.

It is also the starting point for novices starting on the SaIL faculty development programme. It needs to be completed prior to further simulation training at SaIL unless a candidate has had exemption from the Director of SaIL.

Course Aim:

This course provides participants with the foundational knowledge and skills to contribute to simulation-based training in clinical practice settings.

Learning Outcomes:

After completion of the full programme, participants will be able to:

  • identify and write learning objectives for clinical skills or scenario-based training appropriate to their clinical setting
  • design a basic clinical scenario clearly aligned with the learning objectives
  • use low technology simulators, part-task trainers or manikins to create realistic learning opportunities in the workplace
  • use basic debriefing skills to contribute to simulation learning

Format:

On the first day of this interactive course, workshops will focus on the principles of simulation, writing and facilitating scenarios, and ‘hands-on’ practical activities with simulation equipment. Building on this experience, participants develop a scenario suitable for their own clinical settings and return on day two to set up and run the scenario with support from experienced SaIL faculty. Participants both give and receive structured feedback through the course, providing valuable experience in how debriefing contributes to simulation-based learning.

Who is the Course for?

The course is open to Trust employees with a direct role in clinical workforce development and who will be supported to deliver simulation-based education as part of their role. Teams of 2-4 staff from a dept/ ward are encouraged to attend as a group where possible. Students starting the SaIL faculty development programme are able to attend as individuals.

Please note: To independently debrief complex, high-fidelity simulation-based scenarios, participants should plan to continue their development with the Essential Debriefing course.

Dates:

  • Thurs 12th Jan 2017 & Wed 25th Jan 2017 – Book now
  • 13th Sep 2017 & 27th Sep 2017

This programme is for Trust staff who wish to develop debriefing skills for simulation-based learning interventions. It is part of the faculty development programme of SaIL being a mandatory part of the Essential Simulation faculty programme. Prior completion of the introduction to simulation course is required unless a candidate has had exemption from the Director of SaIL

Course Description

Part one: the course runs over 2 days which are separated by a number of weeks. The course introduces the concepts of structured debriefing, using the diamond debrief model, to facilitate deep reflection, exploration of human factors skills and transfer of learning from simulated experiences to the work place.

Participants will actively debrief simulation experiences and abstract exercises. Using faculty to recreate debrief situations and structured debriefing-of-the-debrief, participants can reflect on technical aspects of the model and how they may facilitate debriefs. In addition they will have an opportunity to reflect on their use of the debrief diamond experiences in between the two days.

Part two is the coaching phase: Participants will attend as novice faculty on SaIL courses between the two course dates to practise using the description and analysis phases of the debrief. After Day two of the formal training we encourage participants to further practise the stages of the diamond debrief, debriefing under supervision.

Course Objectives:

  • To provide an understanding of debriefing as an educational modality
  • To provide a detailed account of the diamond debrief model
  • To demonstrate how to develop transfer of learning and application in practice
  • To give practise and feedback opportunities to enable competence in using the diamond debrief model

Learning Outcomes

After completion of the full programme participants will be able to:

  • Explain the phases of the debrief diamond model linked to educational theory
  • Describe the place of debriefing within simulation-based learning
  • Demonstrate components of effective co-debriefing
  • Describe the responsibilities of a simulation facilitator
  • Demonstrate mastery of the essential skills of debriefing using the diamond debrief model from description through to application

Whom

The course is open to GSTT employees with a direct role in clinical workforce development. Participants attending this training should only be those currently supported to deliver simulation based education as part of their role or who intend to practise debriefing on a voluntary basis.

Dates

  • 15th Feb 2017 & 5th Apr 2017
