The Faculty of Health Sciences and Health Education England ran an inter-faculty Simulation Research Day in January, an exciting event that was rolled out with the support of FLIE staff and had 4 clear goals:
- To build awareness and showcase Faculty HEE simulation projects
- To develop external networks with key partners
- To run a bespoke strand for those interested in the ageing/dementia/technology interface (large scale bids)
- To showcase and offer a ‘hands-on’ tech session
The Simulation Research Day was opened by Executive Dean Prof Anand Pandyan who set out some future aims and plans for the faculty and the new building. It was an opportunity for FHSS to showcase some of the projects that are being developed with HEE’s support:
This is a project that runs along with our SIM partners at Poole Hospital. FLIE have directly been working with Jo Staples, Heidi Singleton, and their team to assist in filming and editing these productions in the initial stages using a Theta 360 camera. There are now plans in place for us to record updated assessments using our new Insta360 pro 2. These recordings can then be used as a tool to assist in the teaching of an ABCDE assessment.
A paramedic science simulation including an introduction to our next upcoming event (30th and 31st of March). Adam Bancroft is taking the lead on this one. FLIE assisted with the capture and video of the paramedic handover and assessment, including making the martian video available on Brightspace. FLIE are also involved in the planning and preparation of a large scale simulation involving Parademic Science, Nursing, Midwifery, OT/PT and social science students taking place later in the month of March. This will include recording of OSCE assessment editing of video as well as assisting in recording on the 2-day event to capture the main event and immediate aftermath. These recordings will then be used in each of the programmes attended for teaching purposes.
Social work walk-through flat
Stefan Kleipoedszus & Louise Oliver have used, along with FLIE, the new camera purchased to produce some high quality 360 vignettes to assist students with learning, through some funding we have purchased 40 wipeable headsets for use with these videos to allow students a hands-on approach when carrying out an initial assessment within a home.
