Simulation training is embedded within our regional teaching programme (many paediatric and neonatal departments include simulation scenarios as part of departmental teaching too). There are also a wide range of stand-alone simulation courses available to West Midlands Paediatric Trainees, targeted at different levels of training (click on the course link to find out further information about each simulation day):

ST1: Neonatal clinical skills day

ST1: Paediatric clinical skills day

ST2-3: STEPS course (transition to middle grade)

ST3+: SHINE course (neonatal emergencies)

ST3+: ABC in CAMHS course (acute behavioural crises)

ST3+: SUDIC course

ST4+: PalSim course (paediatric palliative care)

Understandably, some of these courses have been affected by COVID restrictions, but many are now restarting as virtual courses (some being held face-to-face!).
