Bath Simulation Centre (BSC)

Background Information

Inside the Control Room

Simulators are increasingly being used to train medical, nursing and allied health professionals.

Training aims to increase patient safety, practice error management and improve professional, clinical and team management skills.

The Bath Simulation Centre uses a realistic manikin which can replicate a range of medical conditions.

The room can be modified to simulate operating theatre, anaesthetic room, ITU, A&E or ward based settings.

Simulation practise can be video recorded so that the trainers and trainees can view and comment on their performance. Following this, de-briefing sessions allow candidates the opportunity to learn through reflection, mutual support and shared skills.

The advantages of using simulation as an integral part of training are:

While originally developed to teach specific clinical skills, the role of the simulator in multi-disciplinary team training is being increasingly recognised.

Clear communication techniques, conflict resolution and professional decision-making can be practised and optimised.

In conjunction with the Bath Life Support Group and the Resuscitation Department programmes range from Basic to Advanced Life Support courses.
