The latest Organisation accreditation award is to the Elena Power Simulation Centre at Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust
The ASPiH visiting team, Margarita Burmester, Carrie Hamilton & Ann Sunderland were very impressed with what they experienced on the site visit
'Only by visiting could the accreditation team gain the depth and breadth of work being undertaken at the centre. It is obvious that there is a tremendous amount of good work being undertaken within simulation-based education and human factors education'
Simulation-based education (SBE) has matured into a formally recognised teaching method embedded in all healthcare training programmes. It is therefore important that standards of delivery of SBE are defined and described in a document that can be readily applied in different organisational contexts. Throughout 2015 and 2016, ASPiH consulted widely and developed the standards framework for simulation-based education in the UK. ASPiH is now in the early stages of providing an accreditation scheme that individuals, programme leads and organisations can apply to demonstrate that they are delivering high quality simulation-based education that will benefit patient care in clinical practice.
