Each scenario will be around 30 minutes long and is followed by a debriefing tailored to your particular interests and learning needs.

It’s not mandatory to have attended any of the other modules before you come on the simulation day, but it would be helpful if you are comfortable with the practical skills relevant to your speciality, and are familiar with human factors terminology.

There are no tests or assessment; this day is 100% about teaching. We can offer a safe forum in which you can discuss any concerns or anxieties you have about getting back to the workplace, and give you a chance to draw on the experience of colleagues who are going through the same process.
