BOOK A COURSE

World Class Training

The SPRinT programme faculty have undergone extensive facilitation and debriefing training nationally and internationally, including Boston Children’s/Harvard graduate and postgraduate training. The programme is quality controlled by regular performance review of faculty (video assisted) and continual evaluation of the programme success in meeting participants’ educational and personal objectives. New faculty are introduced through a structured training and mentoring curriculum.

SPRinT faculty are also actively involved in the educational committees for the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), the Paediatric Intensive Care Society (PICS), Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare (ASPiH) and the International Paediatric Simulation Society (IPSS).

Our Courses

Since 2011, the SPRinT team have successfully bid to deliver Introductory and Advanced Interprofessional Faculty training, with all courses mean participants’ self-evaluation >85% positive. The SPRinT programme has also collaborated in bids to deliver ST3 simulation training and ST4 facilitator training for London School of Paediatrics since 2010, and faculty from SPRinT have been invited to run bespoke courses across the UK and internationally.

In-situ simulation

Our trained faculty and clinicians facilitate weekly embedded simulations in the real clinical areas where staff work. Our focus on crisis resource management allows staff to have regular training in the non-technical aspects of how to respond in an emergency, with less time away from the workplace. The aim is to improve interprofessional and cross disciplinary team performance in time-critical situations.

These courses are held across Royal Brompton Hospital and are exclusive for Trust staff. Scenarios are derived from real emergencies and we use real equipment and resources to make them as true to life as possible. This strategy also enables us to identify processes and system issues that could potentially pose a risk to real patients (latent threats).

The SPRinT Simulation Faculty Development Course aims to empower all participants, as educators and healthcare leaders, to embed simulation as a powerful learning tool into their work place. It is suitable for SHOs, fellows and consultants from all specialties, as well as nurses and allied health professionals interested in facilitating simulation courses.

In this course, our team teaches the Advocacy with Inquiry method of debriefing, which we have been using in our practice since 2009.

This two-day programme utilises all of the facilities of SPRinT and provides knowledge of the principles of adult learning, learning cycles and how simulation can be used in healthcare to enrich learning, enhance individual and team performance, and improve patient safety. It is an intensely mentored course with video feedback for reflective learning. This course is ideally suited to up to 20 candidates per course.

The first part of the day will be designed to emphasise conceptual knowledge with didactic teaching of crisis resource management principles.
Emphasis on clinical leadership skills, situational awareness, and empowerment of participating teams would be included.

This would be followed by interactive learning of specific leadership examples of good clinical leadership, managing conflict, decision making and end of
resuscitation management through video aids and discussions of characters in filmed vignette examples.

The importance of followership and role allocation would also be taught.
The rest of the day will involve simulation training scenarios with one lead participant acting as team leader and the rest of the participants acting as team members.

Formative feedback will be provided having collected real-time assessment data, in order to inform immediate formative feedback to learners.

The course will currently be specialty specific for the following groups :-
Paediatrics
General paediatrics Paediatric anaesthesia Paediatric intensive care and High Dependancy Emergency Medicine.

Adults
Perioperative Adult Medicine (eg HDU) Anaesthesia Adult Intensive Care Emergency Medicine
It is suitable for health staff members who are already or are about to become leaders in emergency events for whom leadership skills will be relevant and important. This would apply to those returning to work as well as those stepping up into middle grade positions.

What our attendees Say

With over 1000 NHS professionals trained since 2008 the award winning SPRinT simulation programme – has earned a reputation as a top provider of simulation education.

Had a really productive day and it has helped me a lot to see how I can set up in situ simulation in my workplace

Really enjoyable challenging day. Learned a lot about giving feedback and also about my own style of communication.

Great emphasis on safe approach to simulation and debriefing. Very good, encouraging and inspiring and would highly recommend!
