PLEASE NOTE - THE SIMULATION CENTRE WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY BEING RE-DEVELOPED. PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APOLOGIES FOR ANY ERRORS THAT MAY OCCUR DURING THIS TRANSITION.
The Addenbrookes Simulation Centre is an exciting new development, which will allow multi-professional and inter-disciplinary learning on machines that simulate a wide variety of very realistic medical scenarios.
Simulation training for Medical Practitioners, Nurses and Allied Health Professionals is increasingly used in many centres throughout the UK and worldwide. The advance human patient simulator can simulate crisis situations testing delegates' for both their clinical skills and their ability to work effectively under pressure. Medical emergencies such as anaphylaxis, acute myocardial infarction, major haemorrhage and shock states can be created to test individual and team responses which will be analysed using sophisticated audio-visual equipment in an adjoining conference room.
Our centre will be administered by the PGMC and training scenarios will be programmed and designed specifically to meet the needs of each group of participants depending on the level of experience. This will enable every participant to rehearse relevant procedures both simple and complex, and have exposure to rare events.
