Multidisciplinary Team Training in the Workplace

In situ training in picu

OxSTaR was recently involved in helping to run in-situ training in Paediatric Intensive Care. In-situ training allows teams to train in their own workplace using their own equipment and  with colleagues who they work with on a daily basis. They can develop interdisciplinary teamwork skills, test the efficacy of the ergonomics of their environment and safely practice life threatening situations in real-time scenarios.

We used George, our Gaumard one-year old, which is a wireless simulator and has its own monitoring system. It can be intubated, given rescusitation shocks and has patent IV and IO access.
