Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in-situ simulation training team has won April’s Team of the Month award.
This multi-professional team, made up of staff from the ICU and Education departments, delivers training sessions which recreate scenarios which have or may happen in intensive care.
Director of Education, David Robinson nominated the team for its expertise in setting up monthly training sessions in our new ICU unit.
“The scenarios and subsequent debrief are a conduit for learning for the whole team,” said David. “Feedback from nursing staff, student nurses and medical trainees has been very positive and the sessions have also been used to familiarise and embed staff in the new unit.”
Presenting the award, Director of Strategy and Integration, John Holden, told the winners they were a fantastic example of team working, reflecting the fact that the Trust is a continually learning organisation – learning from real incidents and talking about them in an honest way.
The judging panel was also impressed by the superb teamwork shown by the team in organising sessions at short notice and moving training equipment from the Education Centre to ICU and back again.
