Melloney Poole OBE, Chairman, was delighted to meet the simulation team recently and have a look round the simulation suite.
The team, which includes Lisa Toft - Senior Clinical Educator, Emma Williams - Clinical Educator and Emma Shaw – Administrator, organise and deliver simulated education for all staff both clinical and non-clinical in various environments.
Melloney was impressed with the way this type of education enables colleagues to practice techniques safely to enhance their knowledge and skills. Not only that, the team often visit clinical environments to recreate scenarios in practice called In Situ Simulation. This enables areas to embed learning from safety learning events and practice in their ‘real’ environment safely.
Melloney was thrilled to present a Hidden Heroes certificate and fruit basket to the team for their delivery of an exceptional level of support to the Trust in an often unseen but crucial area.
