Developing emotional preparedness and mental resilience through high-fidelity simulation: A ‘bridge too far’ for institutions teaching major trauma management and mass-casualty medicine? (2024)
Journal Article
Smith, A. D., Newton, J., & Smith, A. (2024). Developing emotional preparedness and mental resilience through high-fidelity simulation: A ‘bridge too far’ for institutions teaching major trauma management and mass-casualty medicine?. BMC Medical Education, 24(1), Article 544. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12909-024-05526-8

Background: Clinical acumen represents only part of being adequately equipped to attend a major incident. The emotive sights, sounds and smells of these dynamic environments are all-encompassing experiences, and responders must also be armed with the...

Ambulance clinicians implementing evidence-based practice: Mind the gap! Attitudes, perceptions and experiences of student paramedics (2023)
Journal Article
Newton, J., & Smith, A. (2023). Ambulance clinicians implementing evidence-based practice: Mind the gap! Attitudes, perceptions and experiences of student paramedics. British Paramedic Journal, 8(3), 11-19. https://doi.org/10.29045/14784726.2023.12.8.3.11

Background: Evidence-based practice (EBP) represents the conscientious and judicious use of the best contemporaneous evidence in partnership with patient values and clinical expertise to guide healthcare professionals. As a result, EBP is a recommend... Read More about Ambulance clinicians implementing evidence-based practice: Mind the gap! Attitudes, perceptions and experiences of student paramedics.

High-fidelity simulation in healthcare education: Considerations for design, delivery and debriefing (2023)
Presentation / Conference
Newton, J. (2023, November). High-fidelity simulation in healthcare education: Considerations for design, delivery and debriefing. Poster presented at 4th Global Conference on Emergency Nursing and Trauma Care, Gothenburg, Sweden

Background: High-Fidelity Simulation (HFS) is a well-recognised teaching and learning tool[1]; and one capable of facilitating skill retention and knowledge retrieval[2]. Attitudes, values and behaviours may also be shaped by HFS, fostering a deeper...
