Being a new Consultant involves significant changes to your working life and to the ways in which you communicate with colleagues, patients and carers.Core-GPVTS

Aims & Objectives:

On this course new consultants will identify the opportunities and challenges of their role and learn how to build the resources and techniques to manage them. In particular, the course will address ways of embracing your new responsibilities with confidence.

You will explore ways of supporting your team and encouraging a culture of clear communication, and develop strategies to enable you to switch from day-to-day work to strategic, bigger-picture thinking.

This course draws on the Circle of Care framework developed as part of the GSTT SaIL Centre collaboration with Performing Medicine.

Emergency Departments are busy settings where different professions and specialities interact, exchange information rapidly and work together to achieve common goals.

This inter-professional course utilises fully-immersive high-fidelity simulation to recreate common and challenging scenarios in emergency care, including medical emergencies and trauma. Through a combination of structured debriefing and expert advice, participants can reflect on technical aspects of emergency care and how Human Factors can impact on patient safety.

Aims:

  • To provide a framework for reviewing your working environment and its effect on the patient safety in relation to Human Factors
  • To improve the management of patients presenting to the Emergency Department with common clinical situations

Learning Outcomes:
After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Provide more effective initial assessment and management of patients presenting to the Emergency Department
  • Demonstrate components of effective communication with colleagues, such as the SBAR handover tool
  • Describe effective aspects of working within a team
  • Understand the role Human Factors have in clinical practice

This course is suitable for:
Pre-Hospital:

  • All Paramedics
  • Ambulance Technicians

Hospital:

  • Doctors at all levels working in the emergency, medical, surgical, psychiatric and obstetric specialities
  • Nurses, radiographers, physiotherapists, and pharmacists, working within emergency care
  • Non-clinical team-members including security and administration staff working within emergency care

Simulated patient scenarios with real time-pressures and equipment within the teams’ real clinical environment provides a rich resource to identify latent threats and system issues that can compromise patient safety. Deliberately practicing new or existing procedures within real teams can enhance their Human Factor skills including team working, communication and decision-making.

In situ simulation can occur wherever patient care or a patient transfer takes places; from acute hospital care, community or out-patient facilities, to non clinical areas. Simulated patients can be adults, children, or pregnant women. Common in situ simulations tested in different environments include Anaphylaxis, Cardiac Arrest; Airway Emergencies, Trauma and Clinical Transfers. Participants could be involved in the simulation as part of their working day or within designated training time.

Aims:

  • To provide real-time experiential training of simulated situations
  • To provide a framework for reviewing your working environment and its effect on the patient’s experience and their safety in relation to Human Factors
  • To work more effectively with colleagues when in emergencies or in testing new clinical systems

Learning Outcomes:

We work with local staff to tailor the design and delivery of scenarios to specific learner or departmental needs.

Mobile Simulation can be adapted to any healthcare environment. Examples include:
Clinical environments:

  • Operating theatres
  • General wards
  • Intensive care units
  • Outpatient departments
  • Radiology departments
  • Nursing and care homes
  • Hospices

Non-clinical environments:

  • Public areas
  • Foyers
  • Fire exits

Dates & Fees:

Course Duration: Two days

CPD: 15 hours

Time: 09:00-17:00

Are you, or will you be, part of the Hospital @ Night team at Guy’s?

Course Outline

The aim of the Hospital @ Night course will be to give you a technical oversight into the structure of the night team, your role and what support is available to you. We will also be aiming to increase your knowledge base of some clinical scenarios.

Course Objectives

Using simulated scenarios, this course will:

  • Provide clarity regarding the structure of the Hospital @ Night team at Guy’s Hospital;
  • Explore the complexities that are often encountered surrounding the management of patients and difficult decision-making during a night shift;
  • Explore some of the core Non Technical Skills (NTS);
  • Increase your Knowledge base of some common clinical scenarios.

We will be using scenarios as a way to explore non technical skills and further exploring the complexities surrounding management of patients and difficult decision making that you are often required to make during your night shift.

Having trained at Kings College London as a physiotherapist, I joined the SaIL team as a clinical educator in 2016.

I continue clinical work alongside this role as a respiratory physiotherapist. The acute medical wards and critical care environment of St Thomas’ have been my working environment since 2013 and feel very familiar – I’m pleased not to leave them altogether.

I have experience teaching on undergraduate physiotherapy and nursing degree courses and I’m excited to be regularly contributing to medical education through the work of the Guy’s and St Thomas’ SaIL centre as it’s first physiotherapist.
