Faculty Development

Skilled faculty with knowledge of theoretical principles of adult learning and experience debriefing are essential for successful simulation-based educational initiatives. We recommend that all simulation faculty attend a Simulation Facilitators’ or “Train the Trainer” Course, and also spend time with experienced simulation educators in local centres receiving feedback.

Simulation faculty across UCLPartners have varying levels of experience delivering simulation-based education, and we have created the UCLPartners Simulation Workshop Series as a programme to enhance faculty development. Please contact Lydia Lofton for details of upcoming workshops.

We are working to develop a consistent approach to quality assurance utilising peer review for simulation faculty across UCLPartners. Some centres are already using this approach. If you would like to participate in a peer review process, please contact your local simulation centre or Lydia Lofton at UCLPartners.

Simulation Across Primary and Secondary Care

This three hour event aimed to explore how simulation can support educational needs across the boundaries of primary & secondary care. We explored new models of care, STP’s (Sustainability & Transformation Plans), and how they will influence educational needs and funding sources. In addition, we heard about how simulation is currently being used in primary care and areas for development across primary and secondary care.

The three hour event introduced simulation to those interested in learning more about its potential use for education in their local area, or provided a refresher on essential concepts for those already utilising simulation.
