More information

The programme consists of a combination of face-to-face and e-learning modules, with the aim of these being completed over a four month period.

There are 5 face-to-face days, which are held in different hospitals around the region:

  • Day 1: Human factors and patient safety

  • Day 2: Adult simulation, with an introduction to simulation training and debrief

  • Day 3: Adult simulation, including procedural sedation and debrief

  • Day 4: Paediatric simulation

  • Day 5: Leadership

In addition to the actual content of the face-to-face days, these days provide doctors with opportunities to visit other departments and network with other doctors working in similar roles around the region.

The e-learning component of the programme consists of a set of 3 structured modules encompassing a variety of traditional and novel platforms with the aim that the online content is worked through independently prior to a facilitated group discussion of the content, allowing the opportunity to question and explore issues raised. 

  • Module 1: Sepsis, Sedation and Critical Care

  • Module 2: Medicine and Cardiology

  • Module 3: Surgical specialties and Mental Health

The programme aims to introduce and embed concepts of lifelong learning, and as such information will be provided to introduce participants to a variety of learning platforms and concepts in addition to the traditional e-learning such as podcasts, blogs, vlogs and social media interaction such as FOAMed. It is hoped that the addition of some of the newer learning media will ignite, or further develop, a passion for ongoing learning and interaction with peers, with the hope that this will see an increase in recruitment and retention of this vital group of medical workforce. 

The project team would like to extend their thanks to everyone who is involved in hosting and running the face-to-face and discussion components of the programme.
