Overview

(The acutely or critically sick or injured child in the District General Hospital. A team response. Department of Health, 2007). Multidisciplinary training for all those who manage acutely unwell or critically injured children.

A full day of simulated practice at managing paediatric emergencies. Work as part of a team alongside your colleagues in our high-fidelity simulation suite - exactly as you do in real life!

Suitable for paediatricians, paediatric nurses, A&E doctors and nurses, recovery nurses, critical care doctors and nurses, anaesthetists and operating department practitioners (ODPs).

Featuring:

  • high-fidelity paediatric scenarios commonly encountered in the DGH
  • delegates perform in their own roles as part of a multidisciplinary team
  • structured debrief on both clinical and human factors, highlighting effective team skills
  • SCAMPS is about learning, not assessment.

SCAMPS addresses the Department of Health's recommendation that all personnel involved in the care of the critically sick child in the district general hospital are able to:

  • recognise the critically sick or injured child
  • initiate appropriate immediate treatment
  • work as part of a team
  • maintain and enhance skills
  • be aware of issues around safeguarding children
  • communicate effectively with children and carer

SCAMPS is facilitated by senior paediatric nurses, paediatricians, ODPs and consultant anaesthetists from Broomfield and Southend hospitals.

Course Director: Dr Joseph Hussey.

Your faculty

The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.

We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.

We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
