Paediatric Emergency Medicine Simulation Day


The method of hi-fidelity Simulation training is now well-established as one of the best tools of learning in the medical training which brings the experience very close to the real world. The Health Education, EoE is running 8 courses of Paediatric Emergency Medicine simulation training in the region for all ST3 trainees in Emergency Medicine. DRE-EM trainees who are now in the year of their EM+PEM training, are also expected to attend on one of the days.

The simulation day may start with an introduction. Each trainee will be asked to manage a sick child in a simulation environment with the help of a nurse on a pre-determined scripts of scenarios. A scenario may run from 15 to 30 minutes; whilst one trainee manages the patient, the other 7 trainees would watch the proceedings through a one-way glass panel or via an audio- visual system depending on the facility provided at the venue. Following the termination of the scenario, the facilitator may run a debrief session involving all the 6 trainees and the nurse so that all can participate and contribute to the learning objectives.

A trainee has only one opportunity to attend this one day course in the region which will be run in a number of venues across the region from October 2021 to July 2022. Only 6 trainees will be allowed on one day. If a trainee cancels the course or fails to attend the day after the confirmation of the booking, they will have no opportunity to attend another one
