De-briefing session taking place

Outline:

During this one day course candidates have an introductory lecture and a session to familiarise them with the simulation environment, followed by several simulated clinical communication scenarios.

Debriefing sessions take place after each scenario, where candidates can reflect on their and the group’s performance, guided by experienced facilitators.

Objectives:

This course reinforces foundation curriculum learning. It uses common clinical situations ranging from acute emergencies to communication-based scenarios.

It introduces the interpersonal and cognitive skills required to perform effectively in complex clinical situations through ‘human factors’ training – also known as non-technical skills (NTS).

Peter JayeDr Peter Jaye is a consultant in emergency medicine and has been working for the Trust since 2003. He has been involved in simulation since 2001, became director of simulation in 2008, and simulation lead for King’s Health Partners in 2010.

Peter has led the development of simulation at Guy’s and St Thomas’, including the opening of the St Thomas House Simulation and Interactive Learning (SaIL) Centre in 2010, which has gone on to become one of the busiest facilities in the UK.

Peter has raised over £2 million to fund simulation within our hospitals and the local community. He has facilitated the development of a national reputation for research into simulation at the St Thomas House SaIL Centre. He also led the simulation work stream for the South London Health Innovation and Education Cluster (HIEC).

Amir Bio PhotoMr Amir Darakhshan is a Consultant Colorectal and General Surgeon. His areas of special interest include Inflammatory Bowel Disease (for which he is the surgical lead), the management of Pelvic Floor disorders, and Laparoscopic Surgery. His role in the St Thomas House SaIL Centre reflects his other main interest of Education and Surgical Training.

He graduated from King’s College Hospital and received his surgical training in London and the South East of England, plus Fellowships at Concord General Repatriation Hospital in Sydney, St Thomas’ Hospital and University College Hospital. He was awarded the higher degree of the Doctor of Medicine (MD) in 2008 and has published on General Surgical, Colorectal and Pelvic Floor disorders.

Outside work he enjoys trekking, cycling, painting and drawing and plays chess socially, hobbies that allow him to spend time with his wife and 3 children.

Nature of Course: Open to Internal & External attendees

Course Director: Dr Peter Jaye, Consultant in Emergency Medicine

Outline:SaIL_JPerugia-5021

We use classroom teaching, videos, role play and short lectures. By the end of the course, you will be able to start debriefing scenarios and apply the generic skills you have learned in your clinical work.

Aims:

This half-day course gives an overview of the SaIL Debrief Diamond. This structured model - based on both educational theory and practical experience of delivering a debrief – uses the descriptive, analysis and application (DAA) debrief format.

Course Director: Dr Chris Langrish, Consultant Anaesthetist

Outline:

The course begins with an introduction to non-technical skills  (NTS). This outlines key non-technical skills/human factors involved in caring for patients, such as effective communication, anticipation and planning, and taking a leadership role.

We then cover 5 to 6 scenarios during the day. We debrief after each scenario, focusing on the key NTS points.

To be realistic, the scenarios use high-fidelity simulation.

We aim to improve the way professionals interact at work to benefit patients and prevent avoidable mistakes.

SaIL_JPerugia-5610Nature of Course: Open to internal and external attendees

Course Director: Dr Tahzeeb Bhagat, Consultant Anaesthetist

Outline:

MEPA is a national paediatric simulation course that helps anaesthetic trainees to manage paediatric anaesthesia emergencies.

The course introduces non-technical skills  (NTS) in paediatric anaesthesia and puts knowledge into practice through simulation scenarios.

After an introduction to simulation attendees are given a familiarisation session of the high fidelity simulation room and the baby manikins.

The course looks at current practice in paediatric anaesthesia and, through participation in the simulated clinical scenarios, attendees’ technical and clinical management decisions are challenged.

Each scenario is followed by a debriefing session reflecting on the team’s performance.
