Many patients in both the inpatient and community settings have indwelling urinary catheters and healthcare professionals are frequently faced with their management. Poor management can lead to catheter associated complications with devastating consequences for the patient such as prolonged hospitalisation, readmission and increased mortality.

This inter-professional simulation-based training course utilises immersive clinical scenarios facilitated by simulation experts to explore issues related to catheter avoidance, management of indwelling catheters and their timely removal, management of catheter-related emergencies, and the safe discharge of patients with catheters and their community management, with the aim of reducing avoidable harm in patients with catheters.

Aims:

  • To provide a framework for reviewing your working environment and its effect on the patient experience and their safety in relation to Human Factors
  • To explore some of the core issues of Non-Technical Skills (NTS)
  • To increase knowledge base of management of catheters in hospital and the community to reduce avoidable harm

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

  • Describe current best practice of catheter management to prevent catheter associated urine tract infections
  • Describe the risks and benefits of catheter insertion
  • Explain the effect that ineffective handover of information has on patient care

This course is suitable for:

  • Nurses, doctors and allied health professionals at all levels working across hospital and community settings

Today members of the SaIL team will be heading out to attend and present at the 15th International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) 2016 conference in San Diego, California running from the 16th to 20th January 2016.

Joining simulation and education peers and experts from around the globe, this is the largest gathering of simulation healthcare professionals to share best practices.

Peter Jaye will be hosting an innovative workshop with Suzie Wilson from Clod Ensemble’s Performing Medicine introducing the concepts and ideas of arts-based learning in simulation, a partnership that has created unique arts-based training programmes that enhances care and compassion in healthcare professionals.

The team, led by Peter Jaye and Gabriel Reedy will host two exciting interative workshops centred around debriefs titled ‘Expert debriefing: the right tool for the job’ and ‘Evaluate learning in a debrief: how do we do it, what does it tell us?’ working alongside partner colleagues from King’s College London, University of Surrey and Glasgow Caledonian University.

Gabriel Reedy has also been invited to participate in a panel with several expert simulation practitioners and scholars from around the globe, sharing their ideas and experiences using particular theories for educational-based simulation.

Beth Thomas will deliver a podium presentation titled ‘Share Simulation with Inner City Youths: Lead Simulation into Wider Community Education’ with Professor Anna Jones from Glasgow Caledonian University, presenting new possibilities for using simulation outside of healthcare education settings, in particular to positively impact wider community education, supported by the evaluation findings from our popular and highly successful Hands Up for Health programme.
We wish all the team the best of luck and look forward to their return to hear what’s ‘hot’ in the world of simulation!
