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.

Introductory Facilitator Training Course

Accredited by Royal Colleges for 20 CPD points

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.

Advanced Facilitator Training Course

Accredited by Royal Colleges for 20 CPD points

The module consists of 4 full day sessions held over the period of 4 months. It utilises all of the facilities of SPRinT and builds on prior knowledge of the principles of adult learning, learning cycles and how simulation complements multi-disciplinary team performance.

Cardiac Emergencies in the Neonate

Hands-on simulation scenarios.

This one-day course focuses on the diagnosis and management of congenital heart diseases presenting as neonatal emergencies. It involves a combination of lectures by specialists  in the field with an afternoon of hands-on simulation scenarios.

Bespoke Simulation Courses/Training

Tailored to meet your specific needs

We also offer bespoke simulation courses which can be tailored to meet your specific simulation/crisis resource management learning outcomes.

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).

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!
