Relevant publications
  • How to Develop a Virtual Reality (VR) 360 Degree Film – Part One has been written by Nick Peres, Immersive Technologies Advisor, and gives detailed instructions to learners focusing on technique, camera positioning, sound and directing a scene.
  • The Faculty Development Guidance is part of HEE TEL’s national toolkit to support the use of simulation in health and care. The comprehensive guide, which was developed with support from Simulation Reference Task and Finish group members, offers recommendations for organisations to run an effective and credible simulation faculty to ensure faculty members are trained and supported to deliver high quality simulation-based education.
  • The ASPiH Standards for Simulation-Based Education were created to combine relevant best practice and published evidence in simulation-based education for all healthcare professionals with consideration of a number of existing quality assurance processes currently in use across the UK and around the world.
  • The HEE National Strategic Vision for simulation and immersive technologies in health and care explores how high-quality simulation-based programmes can be applied to help address system-wide challenges being faced within the health and care sector.
  • Enhancing UK Core Medical Training through simulation-based education: an evidence-based approach – Drawing on the experience of the joint JRCPTB/HEE Expert Group on Simulation in Core Medical Training (CMT), this report identifies those aspects of the CMT curriculum which can be appropriately taught using SBE and provides recommendations as to when implementation should be mandatory.
  • National Patient Safety Syllabus – This syllabus represents an exciting new approach to patient safety incorporating an emphasis on a proactive approach to identifying risks to safe care and including systems thinking and human factors.
  • Royal College of Anaesthetists Simulation Strategy – The document outlines how the College aims to continue to lead in the field of simulation applied to healthcare. This will support the delivery of the RCoA Education Strategy and enhance the College’s activities in training, research, patient safety and quality improvement work.

Meaningful Patient Engagement: Why and how to effectively embed the patient voice in simulation education – This London Simulation Network event, held on 29/09/21, was the first of the series on Meaningful Patient Engagement. We would greatly appreciate if you could take 5 minutes to complete this short feedback form after watching the event recording. It includes the opportunity to let us know what you would like to see in the next event in this series on ‘Meaningful Patient Engagement’.

Meaningful Patient Engagement Part 2/3 – This is a showcase of what PPIE can look like in practice in simulation. You will hear from:

London Patient Safety Education Symposium – This event, jointly hosted by UCLPartners and HEE was held on 14th October 2021 to bring patient safety specialists together with simulation practitioners and patient safety educators. We would greatly appreciate if you could take 5 minutes to complete this short feedback form after watching the event recording.

Resources from the symposium:

OSAD Debriefing Tool Workshop – Dr Jane Runnacles, consultant paediatrician with an interest in simulation developed the Objective Structured Assessment of Debriefing (OSAD) tool. She describes how this tool can be used to improve performance debriefing and learning.
