COVID-19 has had a huge impact on the way NHS staff are able to care for patients. New, stricter processes for routine procedures, such as intubation, have been introduced to avoid the risk of infection and transmission.
To enable staff to adapt to these new processes, we have supported the Simulation and Interactive Learning Centre at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to purchase a more reliable, state-of-the-art patient simulator and several airway manoeuvre training manikins.
With the Charity’s support, the training was also adapted so that it could be delivered virtually. New recording equipment has allowed the Centre to create e-learning resources and live-stream teaching sessions, enabling Trust staff to receive the training they needed virtually.
“The filming of skill demonstration and simulations for COVID-19 scenarios has been instrumental in providing resources as part of the Trust’s online training. This has meant the teaching has reached a far greater audience of practitioners, and is in keeping with the guidance surrounding socially distanced learning” said Rihannon Eley, Clinical Simulation Educator at the Simulation and Interactive Learning Centre.
“Without the grant, which has been used to purchase the filming equipment, we would have struggled to produce so many of these training resources when needed.”
Our support for Guy’s, St Thomas’ and Evelina London hospitals is made possible through generous donations. Find out more about how you can support the staff and patients at our hospitals during this crisis.
