Simulated interprofessional Team Training (SPRinT)

The Simulated interprofessional Team Training (SPRinT) programme delivers in-situ simulation courses focusing on crisis resource management and human factors to frontline, interprofessional NHS staff at Royal Brompton Hospital.

The aim is to improve team performance whilst managing clinical emergencies hence improve patient care and safety. The SPRinT team also runs simulation facilitator courses to enable faculty development for other hospitals, empowering them to replicate our successful programme.

A decade of successful team training

The programme was founded in 2008 by individual health care providers at the frontline, in order to meet a need for increased awareness of human factor training. We started with 14 interprofessional, cross-departmental faculty who underwent Harvard graduate and postgraduate simulation and adult learning courses.

The success of our programme has been recognised through national awards in education and training in patient safety, including STeLI Educational Excellence Innovation Awards (2010, 2011, 2012) and the HSJ Patient Safety Award 2015.
