'Tea Trolley' Training

The anaesthetic department has pioneered a new mode of workplace training, called the 'Tea Trolley', the idea of Dr Fiona Kelly. Various teams of trainers have so far used the trolley to train anaesthetic staff in theatres, in a variety of clinical topics.

To date, topics have included regional blocks, anaphylaxis protocols, specific medications and various critical incident scenarios. The trolley and team visit staff in situ as they work, with one member of the team deputising for the anaesthetist to allow them to focus on the short training episode. With the added bonus of a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake!
