Simulation Strategy

What is the simulation strategy?

The strategy has been focussed on developing a culture of regular personal, in-house simulation-based training, addition of simulation to existing monthly teaching programmes and occasional courses. This strategy recognises the need for repetitive deliberate practice of skills with feedback as the foundation to developing and enhancing skills.

The diagram below shows what simulation Core Surgical Trainees can expect to access during their training.  The Scottish Government has funded the strategy along side increasing the time which trainers can dedicate to the ongoing learning of trainees.
