London School of Paediatrics Simulation Programme 2023

The LSP Simulation Training Programme Directors are delighted to announce plans for our 2023 programme.

The programme will be changing for 2023.  Since the inception of the programme in 2010, our goal has been to embed multi-professional team simulation training into all paediatric training units in London.  This is taking place and we also have faculty (including those who have completed/are completing our LSP Paediatric Simulation Faculty Development Programme) who are working in the majority of centres across London.

The programme now will be undertaken at the majority of paediatric centres.  All College Tutors/Unit Training Leads/Paediatric Simulation Leads have been contacted by the Simulation TPDs about the programme.

Centres will be running the following:

  1.  Full Immersion simulation days – these are for Level 1 Paediatric trainees, nursing staff and allied health professionals.
  2. Part-Task/Communication days – these are for Level 1 Paediatric trainees

Your centres will be running these so that you can gain experience in team training within your own teams.  All faculty packs – providing presentations, scenarios – will be provided by the LSP Simulation network (we are finalising these currently) and this includes evaluation documents.

The evaluation of the programme that we have received over the last 12 years has helped with modification of the programme to your needs.

Please contact your local College Tutor/Unit Training Lead/Paediatric Simulation Lead for information as they will be able to advise you of the plans taking place for you.

In the meantime if you have any questions then please contact your simulation TPDs.
