SC@LE (Simulation Centre at Leicester) offers simulation training across UHL and the region. We have a dedicated simulation centre in the Robert Kilpatrick Clinical Sciences Building at the Leicester Royal Infirmary and a High Fidelity Patient Simulator located at the Glenfield Hospital. Our courses are predominately multi-disciplinary with a strong focus on team working and communication.
We are a regionally recognised centre for simulation and deliver a number Health Education England – East Midlands courses for doctors in training. SC@LE also provides simulation based education for undergraduate medical students attending the University of Leicester (UoL). The centre runs simulations focusing on clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment every 7 weeks for up to 48 students for each of the following study blocks; Acute care, Cardio-respiratory, Gastro-Intestinal and Peri-op. More challenging simulations which focus on communication, team working and legal-ethical issues are also regularly run for the students.
SC@LE also supports and delivers in-situ simulation with the aim of training in-tact healthcare teams in low frequency high risk events or in serous untoward errors and near misses.
Simulations for UHL staff include:
- Acute Care Simulations (Band 5 nurses)
- Trust grade doctor simulations
- Advanced Acute Care Simulations (Band 6 and above)
- In-situ simulation (call to discuss)
- Physiotherapy simulations
Simulations for Undergraduate medical students include
- Acute care,
- Patient safety
- Preparation for Professional Practice
- Acute Care Simulations (for Foundation Year doctors)
- Advanced Acute Care Simulations (Core Medical Trainee’s and Higher Specialty Trainee’s)
