Human factors and simulation teaching approaches are synonymous in the enhancement of both technical and non-technical skills, with a wealth of evidence to support the direct impact of such educational methods on patient safety.
At Southport and Ormskirk NHS Hospitals Trust our facilities include a purpose built simulation room with high fidelity patient simulator and audio visual equipment to enable high quality simulation based learning and candidate debriefing.
Simulation activity is also available throughout the Trust with the capability to take this equipment out of the simulation room to provide highly immersive ‘in situ’ simulation based teaching, which has been successfully implemented in a range of clinical areas.
Alongside existing programmes you will see an increased use of ‘in-situ’ simulation in a variety of clinical areas and delivered to a range of clinical staff.
This new approach will be driven by a new Bed Availability Simulation In Situ (BASIS) Programme which will see simulation taking place throughout the organisation.

NW Simulation Network
The North West Simulation Education Network aims to increase the capacity and capability of simulation based education across the North West of England.
The key driver is to promote evidence based practice with patient based outcomes where simulation is used appropriately and in an educationally robust way.
