Anaesthetic Simulation

Anaesthetic Simulation at the Whittington Simulation Centre

Anaesthetic Simulation at the Whittington Simulation Centre

At the Whittington we have numerous part task trainers for anaesthesia skills learning in airway management, vascular access training and epidural insertion.
In the Simulation Centre we plan to offer some of the immersion simulation training courses for groups of the Central School of Anaesthesia trainees as mapped out by the London Deanery STeLi Anaesthesia Curriculum Advisory Group. This states that all anaesthesia trainees receive one full day of immersion training for each year of training, tailored to their level.

Immerson Simulation Training

Anaesthetists can be trained to improve their performance both in routine and complex scenarios where non-technical skills can be practiced and scenarios managed in a learning environment. Life threatening crisis situations can be simulated so important skills such as team working, communication, decision making and leadership can be developed through appropriate reflection and feedback to the trainee anaesthetist.
