WHAT WE OFFER
Here at Medway NHS Foundation Trust we offer a wide range of opportunities to develop you within simulation and applying clinical skills.
Simulation is a technique, not a technology, to replace or amplify real experiences with guided experiences that evoke or replicate substantial aspects of the real world in a fully interactive manner (D.Gaba, 2004). It has a very important place in adult learning by creating real life experience, reflection and conceptualisation (Kolb, 1976). It is the most useful tool for training of softer skills (non-technical skills, human factors). ‘Human Factors in Healthcare’ Concordat from NHS England (2013) and ‘Improving Safety through Education and Training report’ (2016) from Health Education England strongly recommend use of simulation based training to improve patient safety.
