We are fortunate enough to have Dr Rory O’ Brien, simulation lead for the South-Southwest Hospital Group amongst our consultant staff; simulation is therefore a key component of education and training in our department. We run targeted in-situ simulations in our resuscitation room every Tuesday morning, usually to tease out a particular intended learning outcome. The focus is as much on the elements of ‘crisis resource management’ that dictate how we work as a team in high-pressure situations as it is on the actual medical treatment. These simulations also provide valuable operational insights to us as a department.

The EM team are also invited to multi-disciplinary simulations at different sites in the hospital, most notably working with our paediatric colleagues on the ward to enhance cross-specialty relationships and enhance patient care throughout the campus.
