Suitable for all health care professionals with an interest or involvement in delivering training and education, the main aims of this programme are to provide you with: an understanding of the principles of adult learning and how they can be applied to multidisciplinary health care simulation training. an understanding of the evolution, variety and importance of human factors in healthcare practice. the knowledge and skills required to design, develop and facilitate simulation training. the debriefing skills required to aide learners subsequent reflection and development.
Simulation is becoming increasingly prevalent as a tool for teaching and learning in health care because it provides a safe environment in which students can develop clinical skills and non-technical skills via guided debriefing. The aim of this programme is to provide healthcare educators and other healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills required to design, develop and facilitate effective simulation training and education for their learners. The programme offers you the opportunity to study the principles of experiential learning theory in healthcare simulation, the process of creating simulation scenarios and the concepts underlying safe and effective debriefing. In addition to theoretical study the course aims to promote the wider use of simulation modalities, non technical skills and human factors in healthcare teaching, learning and practice.
