St George’s, the nearest hospital to the Magdalen Estate and one of the most celebrated medical teaching institutions in the country, has received praise for a new training initiative that trauma staff are being able to make full use of. Having recently received an education grant following a successful Simulation and Technology-enhanced Learning Initiative bid, the hospital have been able to build a trauma simulation room in the accident and emergency department, complete with patient dummy. The room allows staff to respond to a mock trauma call as though it were a real-life situation, and is part of a continuous scheme to continually improve the quality of and ways in which medical staff are trained.
Natalie Holbery, lecturer and practitioner in major trauma care at St George’s commented, “This provides a fantastic opportunity to host a range of impromptu and planned simulation events using the multi-skilled trauma team.”
