Course outline

These inter-professional clinical simulation courses use an interactive human patient simulator - a computer-controlled whole body manikin which speaks, breathes and has audible heart and lung sounds - to learn, practice and deliver clinical care in a close-to-real environment.

Students learn through real world scenarios which are followed by reinforcing video-assisted debriefs. In addition to this, students will learn vital non-clinical skills, such as leadership, effective communication, and dynamic prioritisation.

Funded by the London Deanery, the training is free for NHS staff in London.
