Low fidelity interdisciplinary ward simulation for patient safety: how feasible and effective is it in undergraduate healthcare training? (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Kennedy, J., Berragan, E., & Ellis, A. (2015, June). Low fidelity interdisciplinary ward simulation for patient safety: how feasible and effective is it in undergraduate healthcare training?. Paper presented at ASME 2015 and SESAM 2015

It has been shown that UK nursing and medical students feel un-prepared for registered practice and foundation jobs (Whitehead and Holmes, 2011; Goldacre et al., 2010). A key reason for this is lack of experience in prioritisation, difficulties mana...

Can interprofessional simulation simulation improve handover and team working skills of final year medical and nursing students? (2014)
Presentation / Conference
Melgies, J., & Berragan, E. (2014, July). Can interprofessional simulation simulation improve handover and team working skills of final year medical and nursing students?. Paper presented at ASME Annual Scientific Meeting

Effective handover is an essential skill for both junior doctors and nurses to acquire. Communication errors can gravely affect patient safety – and within NHS the patient can be expected to be cared for by multiple healthcare teams, often on several...
